If you’re currently in the process of renovating your bathroom, you may be considering what the best type of flooring is to use within this space.

Here at The Cheshunt Bathroom Centre, we have been creating stunning bathroom suites for many years, and in our latest post, we discuss the best type of flooring to use in a bathroom environment.

What Flooring Isn’t Suitable For Bathrooms?

Some types of flooring just aren’t suitable for the bathroom environment. Take carpet, for example, it will soak up the water and remain wet for a long period of time. Moisture and condensation can also cause the carpet to become damp right down to the padding.

Another flooring type that can cause issues in a bathroom is solid wood flooring. Whilst it looks great, the moisture in bathrooms can cause the wood to warp and crack.

Laminate flooring became a very popular flooring choice a few years ago and many people began integrating this style of flooring throughout many rooms of their home. Whilst laminate flooring that has glued seams can be a good option, laminate that simply slots into place can let water slip into the cracks, meaning that the underneath layer may blister and warp.

Most Suitable Flooring for Bathrooms

Ceramic or stone tiles look great, are durable and work well in wet environments. Ceramic or stone tiles can be found in both modern and traditional bathrooms and can be patterned or plain.

Sheet vinyl is perhaps one of the most common types of flooring used in bathrooms and known for being durable in bathroom environments. The great thing about sheet vinyl is that it is much cheaper than many other flooring types and can come in a wide variety of designs. Vinyl flooring can be created to give the appearance of wooden flooring, laminate or even stone flooring, helping you to create your ideal home for less.
