What Is the Best Bathroom Flooring? 

If you are looking to renovate or remodel your bathroom, you will likely replace the flooring in the bathroom. Bathrooms are moist and damp places, and as such, they need flooring that can withstand water and humidity. Here are a few of the best bathroom flooring options to consider when you need new bathroom flooring. 

Bathroom Floor Tiles

The number one choice for the best bathroom flooring is bathroom floor tiles. Bathroom floor tiles include ceramic tiles, porcelain tiles or natural stone tiles, such as slate and marble. Bathroom floor tiles tend to be a great choice for bathroom flooring because they are durable and withstand moisture. The tiles may also have some texture, which can reduce the likelihood of someone slipping when the tiles get wet. 

Waterproof Vinyl Flooring

Vinyl flooring is another popular choice for bathroom spaces. And these days, you can find vinyl flooring that looks like many other popular flooring materials, such as wood or stone. Vinyl flooring is affordable, long-lasting and easy to maintain. It is important to note that there are different types of vinyl flooring on the market. If you are looking for vinyl flooring for your bathroom space, you should always look for a waterproof vinyl flooring option. 

Stained or Etched Concrete Flooring

The final type of flooring that is perfect for a bathroom space is stained or etched concrete flooring. Stained or etched flooring can be time-consuming to install and then stain or etch. However, since bathroom spaces are so small, it does not take too much time for this space. Stained or etched concrete is long-lasting, extremely durable and can withstand moisture and heavy foot traffic. It will not discolor, stain or mold if water puddles are left on the ground. 

Flooring Choices You Should Always Avoid

Now that you have answers to the question of what is the best bathroom flooring, you may be wondering what the worst floor is for a bathroom. Carpet, hardwood, laminate, and engineered flooring should all be avoided in bathroom spaces. Carpet fibers and padding can retain water and start to grow mold or mildew if it gets wet. Hardwood, laminate, and engineered wood can all warp when exposed to the high levels of humidity and moisture found in a bathroom. As such, you should avoid using any of these flooring materials in a bathroom space.
