Nothing looks better than ceramic or porcelain, whether your tastes run to stone or wood lookalikes or brilliant colors and surprising patterns. Ceramics score high with regard to maintenance, too, but they are not nearly as comfortable to the bare foot as vinyl. Installing radiant floor heat helps to change that, but a hard surface is hard whether or not it’s warm. Ceramics are not as easy to install as vinyl, though it is a job the adventurous do-it-yourselfer can tackle. When protected with a high-grade glaze, ceramic will resist wear and scratches. Porcelain tiles are harder than clay-based tiles and may have through-body color, an advantage if chipping occurs.
Ceramic tile floors are designed with more texture than ceramic wall tile to prevent slippage. Honed natural stone will also provide traction when floors get wet—that’s when the surface is ground flat but not polished. Natural stone also can be sandblasted.
As you consider bathroom flooring ideas, your top concern (along with how it looks) will be how well it resists moisture. That's why we don't recommend solid hardwood, engineered wood or laminate. Standing water and high humidity on these floors could cause surface damage or warping.
The style is everlasting and can be adapted to just about any décor. There are an endless amount of ceramic tile colors and textures to choose from. Be sure to shop around because colors and textures can vary significantly between manufacturers.
