Cork is warm to the touch and very easy on the feet, and the tiles come tinted in a variety of colors. Installation is not difficult, but if you purchase unfinished tiles, expect to protect them with two coats of polyurethane. Generally, cork tiles are installed with a troweled-on adhesive, but click-in-place floating floor products are also available.
There are a few important details to keep in mind when selecting your vinyl floor. Be prepared to see a lot of different styles, patterns and finishing options. There are so many possibilities these days! Think about what looks best with your home décor and try not to get overwhelmed. Also, vinyl is very soft, so be careful of sharp objects hitting your floor. They will make a dent.
There are two options when it comes to heating systems for bathroom tiling. Electric radiant heating systems are the most common choice. Electric radiant heating systems are typically more expensive than the other option of hydronic heating. The installation process is complicated, which results in higher labor costs. Still, many homeowners prefer this type over hydronic heating.
I don’t like to clean. I especially don’t like to clean the tub and shower so when choosing tile for these very wet areas you will probably want to go with porcelain or ceramic tile since they are virtually maintenance free. (You will want to double check to see if they need to be sealed.) Tiles make from natural stone require more maintenance and do have to be sealed. They are definitely more pours so they tend to hold on to dirt and grim more. If you are wanting to add texture with stone, it may be a good idea to use it on the floor or in a less wet area. Lastly, glass tile is so pretty and makes a great wall or accent tile. It is super slippery, so it doesn’t work well on the floor.
