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.
Vinyl is the most popular bathroom flooring material, because of its low cost and high degree of practicality. It is well-suited for every bathroom in the house, from the master bath to the powder room. Hands down, it beats other popular choices for safety, comfort, and durability. Almost as important, vinyl tiles have come a long way in aesthetic appeal and ease of installation. The material is self-adhering and can be cut with a utility knife.
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.
Stone tile floors is a distinct and unique look. The most common types of stone that homeowners use are: slate, flagstone (sandstone), marble, granite, travertine and limestone. Stone tile looks fancy and is highly admired by many homeowners. It’s a timeless and durable substance that can be polished if scratched.
