Today’s Types of Flooring for Bathrooms Open a New World
The types of flooring for bathrooms in the past have been ceramic tile and rolled vinyl for the most part. They are still good choices as they hold up very well in the wet environment of the bathroom. But lately there are some new options.
Types of Flooring for Bathrooms
A whole new world has opened up when it comes to the types of flooring for bathrooms. You might have hardwood throughout your home, but the bathroom and kitchen present some problems with hardwood. The bathroom in particular can be a very wet place and hardwood is damaged by water, especially when it is a daily issue.
While tile and vinyl flooring is still a wonderful choice that holds up beautifully to spilled or dripped water, it gets a little boring. When you want something new and different, you’ll really enjoy some of the fun things people are doing lately.
Glass tiles are a gorgeous choice for the bathroom floor. The glass likes to reflect the light and that makes for a sparkly type of lighting situation. Another way to use these tiles is in creating designs with pieces of marble in combination with small glass tiles. Some very beautiful artwork is being created with the combination.
Whether or not cork flooring is the best choice for your bathroom will depend on how often water is spilled on the floor. Cork is naturally resistant to water, but it does have its limits. If you have children then it might not be the best choice for your bathroom.
