As with so many other parts of your home, your bathroom flooring will not last forever. At Kitchen Krafter, we know a thing or two about bathroom designs and remodels and have been using our expertise to help Central Jersey residents transform their bathrooms.

We realize that the choice of flooring is one of the most critical decisions for this particular room. It needs to be a material that stands up to moisture, and you also want it to match any other elements of a more general bathroom remodel that you may be doing. The following are a few choices of bathroom flooring that the design experts at our Ocean Township kitchen and bath design company think you should consider.

 

Laminate Floors in Your Bathroom

Laminate flooring is an affordable option compared to most alternatives. It utilizes a layer of fiberboard underneath that serves as a base for the laminate material itself. It’s important to ensure that all laminate strips or tiles are laid down without any gaps between them, so no water can seep down to the fiberboard.

Advantages: Laminate flooring can come in a wood-like appearance and is low cost.

Disadvantages: It’s the least durable bathroom flooring option.

 

Tile Vinyl Floors

This is similar to laminate in terms of affordability. It’s a common choice for bathroom flooring for this reason. The vinyl tiles come in a wide variety of colors and styles.

Advantages: Tile vinyl floors are waterproof, inexpensive and the tile size is easier to install than laminate since you do not have the fiberboard layer underneath.

Disadvantages: The large sheets of vinyl, which are better in terms of offering superior waterproof characteristics, are also harder to install than the tiles.

 

Ceramic Tile for Your Bathroom Floors

When you get an image of typical bathroom flooring in your head, it is probably one of ceramic tile. Despite being ceramic, the tiles are made with many different finishes including some that can make it look like wood.

Advantages: Ceramic tile is relatively affordable compared to options that are equivalently waterproof, tough and good looking.

Disadvantages: The tiles are cold and slippery. The slipperiness can be alleviated with texturing of the tiles.

 

Granite Flooring

If you are looking for a bathroom floor that should be durable enough to outlast many other parts of the house, granite floors are an ideal choice. This natural stone is an excellent investment for a solid floor in a house you know you’ll be living in for a while and should be appreciated by any potential home buyers in the future.

Advantages: It’s a tough material that should last a long time.

Disadvantages: Because it is a natural stone, it’s porous. This means you should have it sealed to help with resisting moisture. It’s also an expensive flooring option.

 

Marble Flooring

This material represents the pinnacle of bathroom flooring when it comes to splurging on a floor remodel that makes it look second to none. This will cost serious upfront money compared to the other flooring choices, but you will have the enjoyment of it for years to come plus any potential home buyers will be extremely impressed by it.

Advantages: This heavy, durable material is elegant and beautiful.

Disadvantages: Marble is even more expensive than granite floors, and it shares granite’s porousness, so you will have to have it sealed as well to maintain its appearance.
