Natural stone bathroom floors are both beautiful and easy to care for, as you can buy pre-finished tiles and they’re eco-friendly. They’ll look great in most bathrooms, but a rustic feel is key to them being happy in a bright scheme.
Don’t have the budget to do the whole bathroom in stone? There are a range of alternatives that are equally stylish. Tile or porcelain floor tiles in a striking accent colour bring modern style to any bathroom. They don’t have to be part of the main scheme, so will look great in a recess in the wall or as a backdrop for a powerful mirror.
Ceramic tiles are perhaps the most widely used type of flooring alternative with the bathroom’s floor options. These tiles are seen as one of the optimum bases as they are resilient and not particularly costly. You can change these tiles easily without a great deal of hassle.
Installing ceramic tile flooring in a home requires only a few things and only a few tools – a grout auger, some grout, a trowel and a brush. Once you’ve created a pattern, it’s just a matter of filling the areas with grout, placing the tile, and repeating the process until the entire floor is covered. In other words, the whole job should take less than a couple of hours to complete.
