Choosing the Right Flooring For Your Bathroom

It’s important to remember that carpet is not ideal for bathrooms and it can easily become mouldy if it becomes wet. Laminate flooring can be very slippery, plus if you don’t choose laminate flooring that has been especially made for bathrooms then it can warp. With both carpet and laminate flooring it will be tiresome and expensive when it comes down to replacing them.

If you want a floor that will last you years to come then you should choose porcelain floor tiles. Porcelain floor tiles are extremely low maintenance and they are extremely hard wearing. You will probably never have to replace a cracked or chipped tile if you decide to go for porcelain, and they can look like brand new for many years to come! One of the biggest advantages of porcelain tiles is that they are very low maintenance and because they don’t absorb water will some other materials – they won’t stain. They’re so simple to clean, as you’ll just need to wipe over them with a damp cloth from time to time.

From the plain rectangular tiles used on a kitchen backsplash right through to the ethnic look with bright and vibrant patterns it’s no surprise that porcelain and ceramic tile can be used everywhere in the home right from fireplaces all the way to floors.

Stone

Stone tiles are a natural material which means that no two stones are alike. So it’s important to bear in mind that that the finished products will always have a variation in colour, pattern and texture. Stone can be finished in many different ways and probably the most popular finishes are polished and textured. The unique thing about natural materials is that they have a beauty that is quite difficult to compete with, from the subtle veining of marble to the wild patterns of granite.

Metal

It’s quite rare to see full wall covered in metal tiles but they can make a very distinctive and modern backsplash in a kitchen. You can even mix metal tiles with stone or glass for an extra modern effect.

Glass

The great thing about glass is that it’s a man made product, therefore is available in any colour or style imaginable. Glass works particularly well on backsplashes and in bathrooms as they look crisp and clean.
