Bathroom Flooring Ideas – A Look at the Most Popular Choices of 2013

Do you want some great bathroom flooring ideas for that new home that you are building or the old one that you are renovating? Whatever you are planning to do, here are some great bathroom flooring ideas that you should definitely not miss out on. Use some of these in your new bathroom, and it will look really classy and stylish.

Tile Flooring

Tiles have become very popular, particularly those that are made from ceramic.  The appearance is clean and classy, but this is not the only reason that tile flooring is preferred. Tiles are durable and so last longer than other options. They are stain resistant and the new ones that are manufactured are slip resistant as well. The only possible downside is the fact that tiles can be very cold during the winter unless you install them over a floor heating system.

Vinyl Flooring

Vinyl is one of the most preferable bathroom flooring ideas because of its low rates and easy maintenance. The surface resists stain and can easily be kept clean. Vinyl is often supported with a  backing foam or felt, which makes it softer than other flooring options and so the risk of accidents is minimized. Vinyl flooring can either be installed as large sheets or in the form of tiles; the latter is easier to install. If your budget is tight, vinyl flooring is definitely the option you should avail.

Bamboo Flooring

Bamboo is an environment friendly material so if you are fan of green technology, bamboo flooring should be your choice. You will be able to play your part in making the environment healthy without taxing out your budget. Compared to other options, bamboo flooring can be installed at nearly half the price.
Bamboo is available as both engineered and solid bamboo. The former is a better choice because of increased durability and simple installation. Engineered bamboo does not even suffer from damage in areas with increased moisture, so that makes it more preferable.

Laminate Flooring

Laminate comprises of different layers that are bonded together after being subjected to pressure. The resultant product is more durable and strenuous, and cut into planks. Often these are converted with a thin decorative layer. Laminate flooring does not require any extra maintenance and is available at affordable rates.

Hardwood Flooring

Elegant and timeless, hardwood floors will probably never cease to be seen in bathrooms. The material can resist humidity, is resistant to water and can stand heavy wood traffic. And if you do not like brown, stain it in any color of your choice.
