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.
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.
Typically you will choose a floor tile, a wall tile for the shower/ tub surround or even all of the walls in your bathroom, and an accent tile that will be used as a focal point. This is just a guideline. Don’t be afraid to break the rules a little bit.
Unique arrangements, surfaces and designs are in! Don’t be afraid to go for a custom look or explore styles that may deviate from your standard white tile bathroom floor. This is your chance to add that pop of color or pick a pattern that isn’t just a bunch of identical squares in a row. Go online or to a nearby store and start to discover what you like and don’t like.
