Bathroom Flooring: What You Need to Consider

HomeBlogBathroom Flooring: What You Need to Consider

Are you thinking of putting a beautiful, natural dark wood floor in your bathroom? Unfortunately, bathroom floors made out of hardwood is one of the worst choices you can make. What’s that? Your next choice is a lush carpet? That’s not going to work either. Here are a few things you need to consider about bathroom flooring, and why some kinds of flooring work, while others don’t.

Bathroom Flooring: What You Need to Consider

  • Moisture: This is the number one reason why hardwood and carpet do not work as bathroom flooring. Your bathroom faces extreme exposure to water, meaning that your floors are inevitably going to soak up all that water. If it gets wet, hardwood will rot, and carpet will mold. Flooring with seams, such as linoleum and vinyl, is also susceptible to mold.
  • Appearance: Even though you’re probably not always looking down at your feet, you’re still going to notice what the bathroom floor looks like. By choosing a versatile flooring, such as tile, you can create either a unique or traditional look for your bathroom floor. You also can customize the colors, design, or patterns in your bathroom flooring.
  • Maintenance: While it may be fun to go with the most intricate and beautiful design, you should probably consider how much work will go into the floor. Ceramic tiles will most likely need to be regularly cleaned, and they are a hassle to replace if cracked because of the difficultly to fix just one tile.

You can still choose any kind of flooring that you feel will best bring your vision to life, but it’s important to consider the pros and cons. When you’re ready to get started on your bathroom floor, give us a call at Creative Granite Group today!
