Choosing a floor for your bathroom can be a challenging and sometimes confusing time, especially, if you are new to flooring and just have a rough idea of what you want. The great thing is, is that the idea you have, you can most likely obtain as there are a wealth of ideas and flooring solutions out there. Whether you are looking for a wood style floor or a burst of colour there is sure to be something out in the flooring universe that will suit your needs.
Laminate flooring is a great and affordable way of getting that wood style look, whilst also being very practical. It can easily be customised for any bathroom and can suit most styles. If you are looking for a wood effect and you have a small bathroom, go for a light wood shade, it can really open up the whole room and make it appear to be larger in size. Laminate flooring comes in a huge variety of styles and colours so if a marble effect is more to your liking or a high gloss, white laminate flooring or other colour, then this may be the choice for you.
Vinyl flooring is also a really great choice for bathrooms. It is really simple to install, it is a good budget option. It is cushioned underfoot and anti-allergenic. It is also really stunning to look at and can make a great statement. From wood styles, to marble tile effects and solid colours and more you really have a lot to choose from. You can also opt for Vinyl Tiles which would work just as well. They also have a very wide range and come in a variety of options from luxury vinyl tiles to cheap vinyl tiles, with all of them being stylish. Look out for brands such as Karndean, Amtico, Tarkett and Polyflor.
Non slip flooring
Non slip flooring is another good option for bathrooms – it is also a great option if you are planning on installing a wet room. Easy to clean and maintain and really safe, this is an option that must be considered. But don’t be mistaken, just because it is the “safe” option it is not the boring one. Non slip flooring comes in a myriad of colours and designs as well, so you are really not limited in your choice. And safe flooring is definitely something to consider especially if you are considering installing a Wet Room. Great brands to consider would be: Altro, Polyflor, Gerflor and Tarkett.
Rubber flooring has been popular in commercial businesses for years and it is now starting to get popular with general homeowners too. This is because rubber flooring and rubber floor tiles are very hard wearing and easy to clean as well as very comfortable under foot. They are also once they come to the end of their lifecycle (which will be eons and eons away) recyclable. So bathroom rubber flooring is great for your bathroom and the world.
These are just some of many options. Bathroom floors don’t have to be a confusing or boring choice – There really is something out there for everyone.
