You spend a lot of time in the bathroom. No, really. Think about how much activity goes on in that place. There’s the usual—the call of nature and personal grooming, but there are also times when games are played, dogs are washed, and songs are sung. According to a survey from MaP, people spend an average of 30 minutes in the bathroom daily.
Since it’s a space in which you, and your family, spend lots of time, it’s a place that needs to be pretty resilient—as in flooring that’s durable, stain-resistant, and water-resistant to keep your bathroom as beautiful as it is useful.
Have you found that your bathroom is a little worse for wear? If so, we have some answers.
It’s no question that tile and bathrooms just … click. Ceramic tile is one of the most popular—if not the most popular—bathroom floor materials. It’s waterproof, durable, and stain-resistant. Plus, it comes in a variety of colors and styles to truly make the space your own. Bonus: If you’re looking for that hardwood look, ceramic tile even comes in styles that look just like it. Ceramic tile gives you all the qualities you need in a bathroom floor.
Just like ceramic tile, porcelain tile is perfect for bathrooms. It’ll stop every spill and every splash—and look good doing it! Porcelain is known to be a little bit stronger than ceramic. Plus, it’s colored the entire way through, so even if it does chip, you won’t even notice.
Another great option for the bathroom, luxury vinyl gives you the look of wood or tile at an affordable price. It’s waterproof and stain-resistant—making it super easy to clean. Because it looks like wood or stone, you can get the look you want in your space. Plus, in a place where nature calls, luxury vinyl is the natural choice to take on anything life throws at it.
Yes, that’s right we said hardwood. In the past, hardwood was not recommended for use in wet areas like bathrooms. Thanks to today's innovation of new waterproof hardwoods, hardwood makes a great choice in both style and function for your wet areas.
