More and more options keep becoming available for bathroom flooring — so how do you choose what's best for your bathroom? One of the best places to start is to figure out which material makes the most sense. Then you can move on to more of the design elements like pattern and color.
You'll want to go with flooring that is moisture-proof, non-skid, and stain-resistant. These factors all contribute to the safety of those using the bathroom and to the health of your home. Some of the best materials to ensure durability and safety are natural stones, porcelains, and ceramics. You can even go with hardwood flooring if it's sealed appropriately. You can add an anti-slip finish to your flooring for an added layer of protection. Although we don't recommend it, if you really like carpet, it is an option. You just have to make sure that the carpet you choose is water-, mildew-, and stain-resistant.
If you narrow your choices down to one or two of these materials, you can then start factoring in cost and style. Vinyl tends to be on the less expensive side of the spectrum, while natural stone is on the other. You will also have more options for designs as you increase your budget. If you're looking to save elsewhere in your bathroom, you might consider ready-to-assemble cabinets for the vanity. You could also save on bath hardware and then make it a goal to replace the hardware further along the line.
Your bathroom is one of the best spaces in your home to invest in — not only for resale value but also for the safety of your family and guests.
