Have you ever looked at your bathroom floor and thought it was too boring? Maybe you have a tile floor, or a rug, or a linoleum floor. Maybe you just want to change the material of your bathroom floor. Whatever the reason, I have compiled a list of different materials and styles for your bathroom floor.
This is probably one of the more common bathroom floor choices you will see. Concrete floors are very inexpensive, and can be created in a number of ways. There are many different styles of concrete floors, and many different types of hard substances which are mixed with concrete to make concrete.
You can also go with concrete tiles, which are extremely affordable and can be installed in a matter of minutes. They are just like standard tiles, but have very unique looks.
Another common choice for a bathroom floor is a tile or ceramic floor. For a ceramic floor, a homeowner could choose from anything from ceramic, to porcelain, to marble, to marble with white marble tops. You could also choose tile, or laminate, or both.
If you are looking for a high quality tile bathroom floor, porcelain is an excellent choice. It looks really expensive, and is easy to maintain. If you have children or pets, this floor will need to be sealed regularly, but this is a small price to pay for a tile floor that looks this good.
The downside is that it is harder to match your bathroom colors than a painted floor would be.
Brazilian Tiles Brazilian Tiles, also known as mosaic tile, have become extremely popular in the past few years, partly due to their ability to transition from one design to the next. The tiles come in a variety of different shapes, and will match almost any style and color scheme. If you have the room and the budget, this is a beautiful choice.
In most homes, ceramic tile is the standard for bathroom floors. Though some people prefer it over vinyl or linoleum, many people don’t like the feel of it because they have experienced hot and cold flooring in the past and never liked it.
However, a lot of people like to have their bathrooms made of tile because of the warm feel of the tile. Most people prefer to have ceramic tile bathrooms, but there is some concern with some that the durability of it may not last.
Many people will stick to wallpaper in the bathroom because of the durability. It is also often a lot more affordable than tiles. However, there are many that don’t like wallpaper because of its “look”. One of the most popular is the pink and white pattern of the Jungle wallpaper.
Rugs are definitely the most affordable and easier to change out. There are many different kinds of rugs available, so I have broken them down into four categories for your convenience:
Polyester Rugs: These rugs are made out of polyester. They are commonly found in higher end, designer bathrooms. This is a category of rug that I never use because I can’t find the type of rug I am looking for. I would suggest to try to check out a couple different stores and get samples from different vendors. This may be the best way to find what you are looking for.
Carpet Rugs: These rugs are made of viscose or lyocell and are popular in higher end, designer bathrooms. This is a material that I use in my bathroom floor. I use it because it is very plush and comfortable to walk on.
Another material you may not think of, linoleum is actually a low-cost alternative to vinyl flooring. I have a few cheap linoleum projects in my personal archives that I want to do, but they seem too simple and basic to do them today.
The advantage is that this flooring does not need to be sealed, and if you seal it, it is going to look terrible. The advantage that vinyl will always have over linoleum is that it is cheaper.
Some companies like Floor Store and Floor One Flooring even sell it for under $500. I guess I should probably try it and compare.
Mat is basically the cheapest flooring you can get. The problem with it is that it doesn’t allow for expansion and contraction.
While I may not have covered every bathroom flooring style and material available, I believe this will get you started with the direction you want to go. Enjoy, and please let me know if you have any questions.
