Flooring for Bathrooms from Enhance Floors & More

When choosing flooring for bathrooms, there are several viable options. A room with flowing water does present potential damage. Only a couple of choices should be seriously considered. Here are a few questions to ask when deciding on types of flooring to be installed in bathrooms

1. Are the floorings durable?
2. Do they resist water?
3. Will they be slippery?
4. Can they withstand kids?
5. Are the bathrooms spa baths or purely utilitarian?

Knowing your needs ahead of time helps you make smart decisions.

Laminate, engineered wood, and hardwood as flooring for bathrooms

These options are great choices in areas like kitchens. Give a second thought to installing them in bathrooms. Water that runs through bathrooms makes them risky decisions. These options may buckle and heave when water soaked, and may need to be replaced.
 
 

Cork as flooring for bathrooms

Cork is an eco-conscious choice. It resists mildew and is warm and soft underfoot. Cork is recyclable, biodegradable, hypoallergenic and antimicrobial. It also has insulation properties that mean little heat loss. Cork is a wood product. When it is exposed to water, it may distort, plump, or warp. Cork is not the wisest choice of flooring for bathrooms.

Marble as flooring for bathrooms

For those who can afford it, marble is a great looking choice. It tends to crack and chip easily during installation. For use in bathrooms, the marble must be properly sealed and requires a lot of maintenance.

Ceramic as flooring for bathrooms

Ceramic is a popular choice for bathrooms. Ceramic is stain resistant, waterproof, and durable. It resists odors and bacteria. Ceramic offers a classic, clean look. Ask about varieties that are certified slip resistant to avoid falls.

Porcelain as flooring for bathrooms

Porcelain is harder than ceramic, making it a little tougher. It has the same stain resistance, waterproof, durability, and resistance to bacteria and odor as ceramic.

Without radiant heat under ceramic or porcelain, feet can get cold and be uncomfortable for standing for extended periods. Ninety-five percent of bathrooms with porcelain or ceramic tile have standard floor tiles that do not have a slippery surface.

The best and the worst flooring for bathrooms

Carpet is the worst choice for flooring in bathrooms. Most people turn up their nose at the carpet in bathrooms. It is potentially bad for health reasons and resale value. When you come into our Enhance Floors & More showroom in Marietta, GA, our design consultants will likely begin by suggesting luxury vinyl planks as the best flooring for bathrooms.

Luxury vinyl tile mimics other flooring choices, is easy to install, costs less than other flooring options, and can withstand water issues in bathrooms. Customers from Alpharetta, Kennesaw, Woodstock, Roswell, and Marietta have relied up on us for flooring in bathrooms.
