Plastic laminate tiles (more commonly available as planks) are also a good choice, especially if you’re remodeling. Similar to the laminate material that covered kitchen countertops for a generation or two, the tiles don’t significantly raise the height of the existing floor, which makes it easier to plan transitions from room to room. While durable and easy to keep clean, laminate falls short when it comes to moisture. Standing water can infiltrate the fiberboard core, causing the material to expand and buckle. With laminates, it’s critical to caulk gaps along the walls, around the tub, and surrounding other fixtures to prevent water infiltration.
Heated floors aren’t as expensive as you might think. The cost of heated floors has come down in price over the years and they’re now quite affordable. Having heated floors is a great luxury. Such a system can save homeowners money by allowing you to keep the temperature in you homes lower during the colder months. Even though it requires an initial investment of several hundred dollars to install a bathroom floor heating system, many homeowners would agree that the additional comfort and resale value are more than worth the initial cost.
