Three words come to mind when I think of vinyl: low cost and lovely. This resilient type of flooring combines easy-to-clean durability with the look of natural materials. Vinyl is easy on the pocket-book, comfortable to walk on and super low-maintenance.
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.
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.
Mosaics can be very environmentally friendly and many today are made from recycled glass and other “found” objects. As for durability, as with any installed tile project, especially on the floor, it’s all in the preparation. With proper installation, mosaic bathroom floors will last a long time; after all, some have been in existence for thousands of years already!
