Which Flooring is Best For Your Bathroom

Which Flooring is Best For Your BathroomWhen it comes to your home, flooring is important in each and every room you inhabit, but there are some rooms in your home that require more thought; the bathroom being one. Regardless of the room you are selecting flooring for, it’s always important to consider your budget, your style, and the flooring requirements of that specific room.

 Big questions to run through are, “how does it look,” “how does it feel,” and “how well does it repel stains and water?” Once you can confidently answer those questions with your flooring options, you’ll be better able to select your new bathroom flooring!

A Big No

Carpet is the worst flooring selection for your bathroom, with hardwood being a close second. While hardwood brings a warm and polished look to your floors, over time the moisture will Ruin the Hardwood, making this a “bottom of the totem pole” choice. Save the hardwood for your kitchen!

 Laminate is easy to clean, durable, and available in various styles, but if the base comes into contact with moisture, the laminate will begin to bubble, and will eventually need to be torn out and replaced. If selecting laminate, just be cautious of excess water being splashed out of the bathtub by energetic kids!

Better

 Vinyl Flooring , which is budget-friendly and extremely easy to clean and maintain, is the most popular bathroom flooring choice with consumers. While vinyl is waterproof and stain-resistant, keep in mind the importance of choosing a quality vinyl, as the higher quality products will be better able to reduce the risk of water seeping under.
