The Right Bathroom Floor

Bathroom FloorThe bathroom in your home can be a tricky room to floor; the floor needs to be both functional and aesthetically pleasing. Not only is the bathroom a place where you’ll bathe and get ready for the day, it’s often a place of relaxation.

Flooring Options

When deciding on a floor for your bathroom, it’s important to consider both cost, appearance, and durability. Since the floor will constantly be exposed to damp, humid air and water, it’s best not to use a flooring type such as carpet or hardwood. Fortunately, there are a wide array of tile flooring options that are an excellent choice for any budget and bathroom.

Tile Types

Bathroom tile types can range from ceramic, natural stone, porcelain, and quarry tiles. The most commonly used type of tile in bathroom is ceramic tile; ceramic is known for its durability and sophisticated appearance. Natural stone tiles include marble, granite, and slate which are all on the more expensive side but can look fantastic in any bathroom. Quarry tile is made from shale and is typically available in only dark shades.

Although choosing the right tile can seem daunting, with a little shopping it can be easy and fun.
