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.
Unique arrangements, surfaces and designs are in! Don’t be afraid to go for a custom look or explore styles that may deviate from your standard white tile bathroom floor. This is your chance to add that pop of color or pick a pattern that isn’t just a bunch of identical squares in a row. Go online or to a nearby store and start to discover what you like and don’t like.
It’s clear in this picture that laminate can look like wood. This unscratchable, no maintenance ceramic wood look could be yours if the price is right. Well, good news. It’s affordable and looks great in bathrooms! Laminate is easy to clean and maintain, versatile and reasonably priced. In this day and age, laminate flooring can simulate a lot of different natural hardwood materials.
Porcelain is one of the pricier tile floor options, but it’s worth the extra investment. Porcelain can be used for multiple decorating purposes (think walls and counters), however, it works best in the flooring department. It’s good in high traffic areas because it’s durable and made to last. In reality, this tile is harder than granite. HomeAdvisor says that the color of porcelain tile is not just on the surface, but runs down through the tile. This means that the color will stay the same as it wears down (which, in itself, will take a long time). Want to know the best part? Porcelain tile is so easy to clean!
