Vinyl sheet, rigid core, traditional luxury vinyl tile and engineered tile (with or without grout). Each offers a high level of water, stain and wear resistance, and they're more comfortable underfoot than the traditional stone or ceramic tile you'd normally find in a bathroom. With any of these bathroom flooring types, you'll be able to choose from a variety of on-trend designs. Even styles that realistically mimic traditional, rustic and reclaimed hardwoods, or natural marble and slate!
The downside to laminate is that it cannot be refinished. Once it’s damaged, it needs to be replaced. In addition, the floor might look like wood but it won’t feel like it. When you walk on a laminate floor, it produces sound that makes the material feel fake and manufactured. It’s also a very hard material that doesn’t give.
Linoleum is made of linseed oil, cork powder, wood flour, ground limestone and pigments. It is at home in contemporary or retro settings and well-suited to the bathroom. It’s touted as naturally inhibiting the growth of microorganisms and being able to repel dust and dirt, all while retaining its color. In my experience, that’s hype. Click-in-place plank designs make it easy to install, and there is no doubt that the stuff looks great.
Typically you will choose a floor tile, a wall tile for the shower/ tub surround or even all of the walls in your bathroom, and an accent tile that will be used as a focal point. This is just a guideline. Don’t be afraid to break the rules a little bit.
