If you’re planning a bathroom remodeling project, one of the most important features to consider is flooring. Bathroom flooring is available in a large variety of materials, and each comes with a distinct set of advantages and disadvantages. While a professional home remodeling contractor will be able to discuss each option with you in great detail, having a basic familiarity with the types of available materials is important. To ensure you’re satisfied with your space, consider these popular bathroom flooring options when planning your project!
Ceramic and Porcelain Tile
While ceramic and porcelain tile are technically two separate options, these materials are quite similar in quality and price. The biggest advantage of choosing ceramic or porcelain tile for your bathroom floors is the large variety of color and designs available and they can be a non-slick surface depending on the tile.
Marble, granite, limestone and other stone flooring options are the luxurious choice and come with a heftier price tag than other flooring options. An advantage to stone flooring is its durability when it comes to moisture. This flooring option has less moisture problems and is very attractive. However, it can be cold and slippery. Though stone floors are far more expensive than other options, they return excellent resale value.
Luxury Vinyl Tile or Plank (LVT / LVP)
Your contractor will likely mention vinyl bathroom flooring as well. Vinyl comes in both sheets and individual tiles. Sheet material is less expensive but does not have quite the appeal as the LVT or LVP which comes in a wood or stone look.This material is cost effective, durable, and easy to install. With few disadvantages, it’s a very good choice for bathroom remodeling projects.
