Best Flooring for Bathroom Remodel
Transforming your bathroom into your own personal oasis is as easy as a bathroom remodel! One of the best ways to immediately change the aesthetic feel of a space is with flooring and the bathroom is no exception. In general, flooring sets the backdrop for the rest of the room and, in a space like the bathroom, it is important to also choose materials that are capable of withstanding a moist environment to avoid potential damage. Fortunately, when it comes to flooring, there are multiple gorgeous options that are ideal for a bathroom remodel and also enhance any design aesthetic.
Porcelain or Ceramic Tile – Porcelain and ceramic tile are some of the most durable flooring options for a bathroom. They are waterproof, stain-resistant, highly durable and, generally speaking, moderately priced.
Natural Stone – Natural stone may be a great option depending on which bathroom and how frequently it is used, and/or whether or not you are willing to put in a little maintenance. Natural stone is gorgeous and very durable, but it is not stain resistant which means it often has to be sealed on a regular basis, as well as properly cleaned, to avoid damaging the stone.
Engineered Wood – While everyone loves the look of hardwood flooring, it is not the ideal option for installation in a bathroom because it is susceptible to water damage. For this reason, engineered wood is a great bathroom remodel flooring option. Engineered hardwood is still made of real wood but it is designed and created to withstand heat and moisture and can even be installed over existing flooring. While engineered hardwood is water-resistant, it is important to note that it is not waterproof.
