Choose the Best Flooring for Your Remodeled Bathroom

If you are in the process of planning your bathroom remodel, you know that there are many decisions that you have to make. You need to decide where everything will be going in the space. What material will you be using on the shower walls and bathroom walls? You’ll need to choose a vanity, lighting, and so much more. Many homeowners tell us that the options are overwhelming. It’s okay to feel that way; we understand. We’ll help you make those difficult decisions, including the flooring.

Here are 4 of the best flooring options for your remodeled bathroom:

  1. Porcelain Tiles – There are many different types of ceramic tiles available and porcelain is the best one for bathrooms, because it has a water absorption rate of less than half of a percent. These tiles can give your bathroom floor a textured look, yet they will not be ruined by the continuous flow of water that makes its way to your floor. The tiles are available is almost every color imaginable and you can even find ones that look like wood or stone.
  2. Engineered Wood – Wood floors are normally not a good option for bathrooms, because of the water and moisture that is always present. However, engineered wood has a plywood base that holds up to all that moisture. The added bonus is that the top layer of the engineered wood is real wood and that will make your bathroom look amazing.
  3. Vinyl – This is not a high-end choice for flooring, but it is durable and easy to install. Vinyl is also available in sheets, planks, and tiles, so you can create a unique look in this space. There are thousands of options available when it comes to colors and designs, which makes it perfect for matching anything else that you choose.
  4. Natural Stone – A natural stone floor is going to cost a little more money, but the finished result is fabulous. We do recommend that if you choose stone, that you purchase textured stone or have it sandblasted, because it gets very slippery when it is wet.

You will remodel your bathroom according to your individual style, so you will need to choose the flooring that will match not only your style, but everything else that you have chosen. You will also need to work within your budget, so that you do not spend all your money on the floor and have nothing left for the finishing touches in the space.
