Bathroom Flooring

Bathroom flooring may be the place to start your bathroom remodeling project. Flooring in any room makes a great impact just because of the amount of space it occupies, and since bathrooms are usually smaller the impact of a new floor can be greater.

Special consideration needs to be given to bathroom flooring for a couple of reasons. If your bathroom is not a large room, choosing lighter colors and designs with larger elements will expand the room. Another consideration is that a bathroom receives a lot of moisture both in the form of water on the floor, and the steam from showers and running water.

Many flooring choices are available today in a variety of different looks and price ranges. Natural stone such as granite or marble, laminates that mimic a wood look and are easier to keep up, tile or vinyl flooring are some of the many options available. Another long standing product, linoleum flooring, is making a comeback with more choices in pattern and color.

On the following pages you'll find information on a number of bathroom flooring choices and their characteristics and care requirements.

Tile Floor
A tile floor in a bathroom is durable and very attractive. Laying tile can be a DIY project if you are handy and allow proper time to go through each step of installation.

Laminate Wood Look Flooring
Laminate wood look bathroom flooring is easy to clean and stands up to a lot of wear.

Linoleum Flooring
Linoleum is a very durable flooring product and preferred by many people who have allergies. It is considered a green product since it is biodegradable.
