If you are remodeling your bathroom, you likely are considering new flooring for your at-home spa. One of the wettest places of the house, the bathroom requires flooring that will be able to take the moisture. Often, the best choice is going to be tile. Below are several tips on choosing bathroom flooring.
The size of your bathroom will be a factor in the size of your bathroom tiles. Large floor tiles might make a small bathroom feel even smaller, and very small tiles in a large bathroom might feel busy or unnecessary. For smaller bathrooms, a medium-sized or mosaic tile floor could be a good idea.
In choosing bathroom flooring, one must also consider the durability of the tile. How well can it take moisture, how slip-resistant is it, and how strong is it? Be sure to choose a non-porous tile option or one that can be sealed so you won’t have to deal with moisture-damaged flooring.
How comfortable will your flooring be? In other words, will your flooring always be stone-cold to the touch? Or, if you are looking for extra comfort, would heated flooring work for your home? The bottom line is that porcelain and ceramic, while being the most popular bathroom flooring materials in the U.S., are the coldest in temperature.
Some floors also require more maintenance than others. Bathroom floor care is usually minimal, but one must realize that natural stone floors often need routine sealing in order to stay waterproof and resilient. Similarly, floors with texture and grout lines will need scrubbing to get dirt out of the grooves.
Your budget will also play a huge part in your decision. You will likely find that vinyl, laminate, and cork flooring are the least expensive, with ceramic, porcelain, and glass in the middle range, and natural stone on the top tier. Kenwood Kitchens can give you a better idea of what to expect and work with your budget to find the best solution.
