When it comes to choosing bathroom flooring the most popular types these days include vinyl, ceramic and porcelain tiles. That’s because they not only look good but they’re also water resistant, low-maintenance and extremely hard-wearing.
It’s worth taking time to consider what’s important for you in your bathroom flooring. For instance if you have elderly relatives living with you, or young children around then a soft-landing, hard-wearing and low maintenance type of flooring sounds like your best bet. On the other hand if you live alone or with another adult then perhaps it’s worth splashing out on some luxury flooring in the knowledge it’s not about to get damaged.
Benefits of vinyl bathroom flooring
Vinyl flooring in particular has many advantages. Not only is it softer than the other two which means any falls won’t be as hard should an elderly family member or children lose their balance, but it’s also easy to install. Our Clever Click vinyl flooring system in particular can be placed on concrete, wood and stone without the need for any underlay. Nor is any adhesive or nails required since the tiles simply click in to place. It also comes with a 20 years guarantee for domestic use and is available in a huge range of different finishes such as realistic-looking wood and stone.
Other forms of bathroom flooring and their benefits
Rubber, like vinyl, is easier to walk and land on and it is similarly a low-maintenance bathroom flooring material. However, less expensive rubber flooring can prove slippery.
Flooring produced from engineered wood can look stunning and feel warmer on the feet than other forms of flooring, but it’s not particularly easy to keep looking good – especially with all that water around.
Porcelain tiles are harder wearing than engineered wood but not as soft as vinyl and rubber. They’re easy to keep clean though and pretty simple to put down too.
