The drawbacks are worth noting. The maintenance is ongoing and needs to be taken seriously if you want to preserve it. To ensure your natural stone floors provide you with a lifetime of beauty and effectiveness, you must polish the stone floor every few years. In addition to consistent upkeep, it’s important to know that stone tile has limited resistance to chemicals and stains. It costs more than ceramic tile to install and the final product rarely looks like the sample you originally select. If you’re thinking about remodeling your bathroom to include stone floors, be sure to get help from an expert.
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.
Typically when we start a bathroom renovation we have one tile that we dream of including in our design. Sometimes it is a really special or unique accent tile and sometimes it is as simple as knowing that you want white subway tile. Either way, take that dream tile and use it as the starting point for the other tile you will choose for your bathroom design.
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.
