There are three basic types of vinyl floor options for the bath: sheet, tile and plank. Sheet vinyl comes in a range of colors and designs and is preferred for high-traffic baths. Vinyl tiles are easy-to-install and mimic stone or ceramic tile. They come in just about any color. The size of the individual tiles range from small to large format and can be installed in practically any pattern for a custom look.
Glass floor tile is about as different as you can get. Installed properly, this type of tile holds up well and if textured, it can resist slips. Small glass tiles with lots of grout joints are also slip-resistant. The aesthetic appeal is twofold: Covering the floor in a thin layer of glass creates the illusion of depth, and if the glass is tinted, you get a lovely stained-glass effect.
Beyond simple patterns, however, mosaic bathroom floors can also become works of art. Can you imagine having the Mona Lisa recreated on your floor? How about a skyline or an Andy Warhol-inspired piece of pop-art? All these designs are entirely possible with the use of mosaic tiles. Of course, the more creative and unique the pattern or image, the higher the price tag will be. But these details really make a high-end home unique.
Tile as a bathroom floor is easy to maintain, attractive and available in so many options. But it can get awfully cold. Radiant heating uses a hydronic or electric system to warm the floor from underneath. Hydronic systems involve rubber tubing that is installed under the floor and a hot water heater is used to heat up water, which circulates through the tubes and radiates warmth up and through the floor. Electric radiant heating is more economical and simpler to install—plus, it’s ideal for heating a single room if you’re not investing in a whole-house system. A thin electric panel containing heat-resistant wire is installed under the floor. Using a thermostat and timer, you can rev up the floor temperature when you use the space.
