What Is the Best Flooring for A Bathroom?

We recently covered a story about installing blinds into the bathroom, so what about bathroom flooring? Your bathroom floor needs to be practical, but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice aesthetics! There are plenty of bathroom floors that you can install without being concerned about slipping, or having to always worry about water damage.

A bathroom floor will play a role in how big your bathroom appears, so it’s important to keep colours and textures in mind. You’ll also want to be sure that if you pad across it with bare feet, it’s comfortable and non-slip. There are many bathroom floor options that can work for your needs – the trick is to find the right one!

Cushion Vinyl in the Bathroom

Cushion vinyl gives homeowners the best of all of the flooring options; it is hard-wearing, it looks great, and it’s waterproof! The additional padding that cushion vinyl provides also ensures that it is less slippery when wet – however, you may still want to put down a non-slip bathroom mat for when you get out of the bath or shower.

Cushion vinyl, just like regular vinyl, comes in many different styles, designs, and colours. This makes it great for those looking for a bathroom fix, no matter what size the space is.

Laminate Flooring in The Bathroom

Laminate is not known for its waterproof abilities, but it is able to withstand some moisture. Again, you will want to put down a bathroom mat to keep pools of water from sitting on the floor, and keep a floor cloth close by, because laminate doesn’t like prolonged exposure to water.

The pros of laminate are still something to keep in mind; laminate flooring is cost-effective, it looks great, and it is durable. Speak to your professional flooring installer before you decide on this option.

We provide professional laminate and vinyl flooring installations, and give you the right option for your needs and wants. For more information on installing bathroom floors, as well as flooring in residential or commercial spaces, give us a call!
