Choosing the Best Material for Bathroom Floors

Choosing the Best Material for Bathroom Floors

If you’re redecorating your bathroom, one of the most important decisions you’ll need to make is what material you want for your floor. The days of carpeting our bathroom floors may (thankfully) be gone, but that doesn’t make your decision much easier. From sleek vinyl flooring to wood, stone and tiles, there are lots of different options on the market. So how can you choose the best material for you?

In this blog post, we’ll guide you through some of the most popular materials for bathroom floors to help you discover the perfect one for your home.

What are the most popular materials for bathroom floors?

The most popular materials for bathroom floors are:

  • Tiling, usually porcelain or ceramic
  • Vinyl flooring
  • Stone or polished concrete
  • Engineered wood (this is made up of several layers to make it suitable for damp environments such as your bathroom)

How can you choose the right material for you?

The right choice of bathroom material for you will ultimately depend on three factors:

  • Your family lifestyle
  • Your personal style
  • Your budget.

For example, engineered wood might look beautiful, but it won’t be the best material for you if you have young children who splash in the bath or an elderly relative who could slip over when it’s wet. It can also be very expensive.

Another key factor to consider is your home heating system. Ceramic tiles, stone, or concrete can become incredibly cold if you don’t have underfloor heating. This can make trips to the bathroom in winter feel a little icy!

Why choose vinyl flooring for your bathroom?

At Igloo Surfaces, we believe the best – and most versatile – material for your bathroom floor is vinyl. This flooring promises a high-quality finish with none of the fuss required to fit tiling, wood, or stone.

Vinyl is suitable for every style

With an appearance that looks as good as the real thing, our wood and copper slate effect floors are the perfect way to achieve a natural finish without any of the drawbacks associated with the genuine materials.
