Bathroom floors might take the most wear and tear of any room in your house, so for many homeowners, durability and water-resistance will be of prime importance. Our flooring experts at Floor Coverings International NW Dallas know how to best pair style with practicality when it comes to bathroom floors. Here are a few of our top choices.
Ceramic tile is a great bathroom choice because of its blend of style and water resistance. With an incredibly large variety of ceramic tile from which to choose, you can easily pair this with any room style. Porcelain ceramic styles offer an absorption rate of less than 0.5 percent, making it a great fit for bathrooms. Radiant heating systems can be installed underneath to keep bare feet warm. Make sure to also install tile that is certified slip-resistant.
Sheet vinyl, vinyl tiles, and vinyl planks are a good match for budget conscious homeowners. Vinyl also comes in a surprising array of styles, from rustic stone to hand-scraped hardwood. It’s easy to clean and waterproof. Vinyl may not be the right material for luxury homes, but it remains one of our most popular bathroom surfaces because it’s inexpensive and varied.
Speaking of luxury homes, stone can be beautiful and fit in well with many entry-level half baths. The downside is that it’s expensive and potentially slippery, which wouldn’t be an issue in bathrooms without a shower. It can also be cold on bare feet unless paired with a radiant heating system.
Other options for bathroom floors include laminate wood, cork, and bamboo. Don’t hesitate to reach out to our experts at Floor Coverings International NW Dallas for all your bathroom flooring questions. We proudly serve Northwest Dallas including Carrollton and Irving.
