Five Fab Floors for your Bathroom
Seeing as our last blog post looked at the floors in your kitchen, it makes sense to focus on the bathroom floor. At Watford Bathrooms and Kitchens, we know all there is to know about bathrooms and kitchens and flooring is an area we love. So, here are Five Fab Floors for your Bathroom.
Porcelain and Ceramic Tiles
Possibly the most common and popular type of bathroom flooring in the world. Modern porcelain and ceramic tiles have endless possibilities when it comes to style, design and simply looking fabulous. You can’t really go wrong with porcelain or ceramic tiles for a fab bathroom floor. Very often ceramic tiles, in particular, become an effective and affordable bathroom flooring solution. Ask the team at Watford Bathrooms and Kitchens to help you find the best tiles for your bathroom.
Oh so posh marble has an elegance all of its own and when used for bathroom floor it looks amazing. Marble is a surprisingly warm flooring material to use but is easily scratched, often slippery when wet and of course expensive. Marble is easily replaced and readily available and it perfect for luxury bathrooms or those wanting to really make a bathroom look fabulous. Talk to the bathroom experts and Watford Bathrooms and Kitchens about how best to use marble for bathroom flooring.
Marble is very much a type of stone in some eyes but there are other stone products that make outstanding bathroom flooring materials. Limestone, granite and even sandstone all make amazing bathroom floors and just like marble they are a little on the expensive side. Certain stones are quite water absorbent and therefore they may need a treatment. However, if you are considering stone to make your Bathroom look fab, speak to us at Watford Bathrooms and Kitchens.
Vinyl or Luxury Vinyl Tiles
Modern Vinyl and luxury vinyl tiles are becoming one of the most trend flooring solutions at the moment. In wet family bathrooms, sheet vinyl is the ideal bathroom flooring solution and one that has many colour and style options. The thing to watch out for with vinyl flooring is gaps and edges, these must be properly sealed when used in a bathroom.
If you want hardwearing and very water-resistant rubber is an unusual bathroom flooring solution. Modern rubber flooring is available in a variety of colours and designs that can make a bathroom not just fad but also funky. Rubber is also surprisingly warm underfoot and is great for busy families.
A Bathroom Floor not to consider
Carpet is not the best solution for your bathroom flooring needs. Yes, it can be used, but just like a sponge carpet soaks up water and when it sits inside the sponge-like pores it can begin to smell. Sure, there are some cases where a carpet can be used in a bathroom, but it is best to seek advice first – ask the experts at Watford Bathrooms and Kitchens.
