The downside to laminate is that it cannot be refinished. Once it’s damaged, it needs to be replaced. In addition, the floor might look like wood but it won’t feel like it. When you walk on a laminate floor, it produces sound that makes the material feel fake and manufactured. It’s also a very hard material that doesn’t give.
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.
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.
There are three basic types of vinyl floor options for the bath: sheet, tile and plank. Sheet vinyl comes in a range of colors and designs and is preferred for high-traffic baths. Vinyl tiles are easy-to-install and mimic stone or ceramic tile. They come in just about any color. The size of the individual tiles range from small to large format and can be installed in practically any pattern for a custom look.
