Bathroom flooring can set the
mood of an entire room. But even more important than appearance is how your
bathroom flooring will stand up to moisture. For this reason, vinyl floors and ceramic tiles are two of the most popular choices for bathroom floors. Both are

While porous flooring options such as wood and stone
aren’t often used for bathroom flooring, that doesn’t mean you should
overlook them completely. Both need to be sealed before they can
withstand the humidity and occasional splashes that are common in
bathrooms. If a wood look is important you might want to consider engineered hardwood flooring for your bathroom as its much more resistant to humidity than solid hardwood floors.
