One of the most popular flooring options for bathrooms is ceramic tile. It offers a clean and classic look that’s also extremely durable, waterproof, and stain-resistant.
Vinyl is easy to clean, waterproof, and stain-proof. Choosing a top-quality sheet vinyl (rather than peel-and-stick tiles) will reduce seams where water can seep under. A felt or foam backing makes vinyl softer than wood or tile, which is helpful in bathrooms where slip-and-fall accidents are common on wet floors.
Hardwood floors create a warm and classic look in the bathroom. Engineered wood, which is made of real wood veneer backed by plywood, resists humidity better than solid wood and is a smart choice in a damp space. Laminate gives the look of wood but is actually a photographic image pressed between two wear layers.
