Mosaic bathroom floors come in all styles, from traditional to pop art. One of the most popular design motifs, the Greek key, is easily created using black and white marble mosaic tiles. A cost-effective way of getting this style is to lay down larger tiles in the center of the floor and create a border of the small mosaics in the pattern of your choice around the periphery. Pre-made sheets of mosaic tile are available for easy installation; they can make mosaic bathroom floors a relatively easy DIY project. Similar to a border, one can also install a mosaic “rug” in the center of the floor, with larger, simpler tiles around the periphery. More complicated patterns, such as interlocking ovals and scrolls, are significantly more difficult to create and are therefore higher in price. However, nothing says high-end traditional elegance like mosaic bathroom floors with a traditional pattern made from beautiful stones and colors.
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.
