Hardwood floors that are sealed will combat moisture damage and can provide a uniform look if the rest of the home has wood flooring. And basic vinyl is easy to wipe down and highly affordable.
Mosaic designs have long been a staple of the decorative arts, and as an art form, they are held in high regard. Mosaics are made of small, usually square pieces of glass, stone, shells or other material that are placed in such a way as to create and pattern or a picture. Dating back to Roman times and before, mosaics have been used the world over to cover everything from walls to ceilings and floors. This time-honored decorative technique is still widely used today, and mosaic bathroom floors are particularly popular. When it comes to design and pattern, the sky really is the limit and a true artist can create any picture with the use of small mosaic tiles.
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.
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.
