Which Flooring Should You Choose For Your Denver Bathroom Remodel?


April 26, 2017

One of the many decisions you will have to make during a Denver bathroom remodel has to do with flooring. The flooring that you use in your bathroom must be durable, resistant to water, and of course, beautiful. If you’re thinking about remodeling your bathroom, consider these different flooring options:

Vinyl Tiles

Vinyl tile is one of the most popular choices for bathroom floors because of its durability and affordability. If you have small children, vinyl tile is a great choice because it is very resistant to water. You can let your kids splash in the tub to their heart's desire without having to worry about the damage it’s causing to your floors. Additionally, there are countless different colors and styles of vinyl tiles, so you won’t have any trouble finding one that suits your bathroom.

Natural Stone

Many homeowners love the look of natural stone, but they may not love the price tag. Natural stone tends to be more expensive than most tiles, but if it’s in your budget, feel free to use it. It’s important to note that many natural stones become slippery when they are wet, which could be dangerous in the bathroom. However, this problem can be easily avoided if you look for a stone with texture or ask the installer to sandblast the stone to create texture.

Ceramic Tile

Although ceramic tile is not as comfortable to walk across as vinyl tile, many homeowners prefer its appearance. If you want to make it more comfortable, look for heated ceramic tile that will keep your feet warm as you walk across the floor. Ceramic tile can be made to look like other flooring materials, such as wood or travertine, which is why so many homeowners love it. If you choose ceramic tile for your bathroom, be sure to talk to your installer about protecting it with a sealant so you don’t have to worry about scratching it.

Smaller tiles use more grout between each piece and are therefore less slippery than larger tiles, so you should also keep this in mind when making your decision. Learn more about choosing bathroom flooring.

Bamboo

Bamboo has started to increase in popularity over the last several years, and many homeowners have chosen to use this in their bathrooms for a unique, natural look. Bamboo is less expensive than hardwood and more eco-friendly, so if you want to protect the environment and stay within budget, this is a great option that will still allow you to achieve the warm wood look. If you’re interested in bamboo floors, choose engineered over natural bamboo. Engineered bamboo is very durable and resistant to water, so they will hold up well in a bathroom.
