bathroom flooring vinyl laminate


One of the most common flooring materials out there today is vinyl, and this remains true for bathrooms as well as kitchens, basements and other living areas. Vinyl is soft, durable, affordable and comes in a huge variety of colors and patterns to fit your personal tastes.

If you're worried about the sound of high heels on hard floors echoing through the house – especially with children or regularly-staying guests – vinyl is a great choice. It's warm and quiet, with little to no noise echoing through the flooring itself. You may also find that vinyl resists mildew and mold better than some other materials, making it an excellent choice for your bathroom remodeling project.


With so many benefits of vinyl but often at a slightly higher price point, laminate flooring is another excellent choice for a bathroom remodel. If you're looking to make your bathroom as spa-like and comfortable as possible, this material may be what you need.

Laminate typically has the look of hardwood or other materials but with the durability, affordability and ease of installation offered by vinyl flooring.

Ceramic Tile or Porcelain

If you want to give your bathroom a spa-like feel, consider ceramic tile flooring as an option for your remodel. Ceramic tile – often available in the form of porcelain tile – comes in large, easy-to-install sheets that dry quickly and set quickly after installation.

This material is extremely resistant to mold and mildew, as well as high levels of humidity. It's also available in a huge variety of colors, including earth tones as well as more vibrant choices for those looking to add some color to their remodeled space.

Be sure that you have the area completely prepared before getting started on any bathroom remodeling project, including any kind of flooring upgrade. This means laying down a tarp or other protective barrier to ensure that the surface is protected during construction and installation. You may also want to consider purchasing various materials at once so you can be sure to get better pricing on all your supplies at once.
