So you want to remodel your bathroom. Naturally, you start with the floor. But what options do you have? Let’s look at some flooring that would go great in your bathroom.
Tile has been around for centuries. Just ask the archeologists in Italy and Greece. There are two types of tile, ceramic and porcelain. Both are made from a special clay, but ceramic has additional ingredients that include feldspar and sand. Both are hardened in a hot kiln, which cements their durability and strengthens their waterproof resistance. Tile comes in many colors and patterns; it can be cut at any size, down to a postage stamp even! The décor is totally up to your preference for what you want your bathroom floor to look like.
Luxury Vinyl is a product that naturally comes waterproof. How? It’s due to its composite plastic wood or stone core. The core is made up of several plastic layers pressed together to 8 millimeters. This waterproof core is then pressed together with a vinyl backing and a top layer that protects against dents, scratches, and scuffs. Some manufacturers put another protective layer atop the top layer to prolong the floor. When installed, the planks or tiles fit together with a tongue and groove fit, making a tight seal over the subfloor. Luxury vinyl can look like wood, tile, or stone, with a 3D appearance in the vinyl.
