Warm wood

Solid wood or laminate floors aren’t usually suitable for bathrooms as the humidity will cause the material to discolor, swell and warp. But hardwood floorings, such as teak and bamboo, can work well (double-check with the manufacturer first) and engineered wood and bathroom-specific laminate – made with PVC – are designed to withstand moisture.

 

 

 

 

Rustic-style bathroom flooringurmston flooring

For a country-style bathroom terracotta ceramic tiles work perfectly. Ceramic tiles and porcelain tiles come in a huge range of colors, textures and finishes, which imitate the look of natural stone. Porcelain is more hardwearing than ceramic tiles and better for high traffic areas.

Chic polished flooring

Polished concrete or stone looks fabulously stylish in a chic, grown-up bathroom like this one, but it’s not so practical in a family bathroom as polished concrete or stone can be slippery when wet. Bespoke resin or acrylic flooring could give you a similar affect but with a bit more grip – you’d need to speak to your bathroom designer about this, though.

When it comes to small bathrooms a lot can be achieved with the right flooring. If you use the same tiles on your floor as your walls it visually expands the space, and medium to large tiles are better as small or mosaic tiles can make the bathroom look even smaller.

Underfloor heating for toasty toescheap flooring

Underfloor heating is fast becoming the most popular choice for bathroom flooring. There’s nothing worse than stepping onto a cold floor in winter – plus, a wet floor dries quicker with underfloor heating, and you don’t need radiators if you have heated floors. There are two systems to choose from: ‘wet’, where the floor is heated by hot water pipes under the floor. And ‘dry’, where electric cable is laid down. Both systems need to be installed by a professional. Speak to your bathroom designer or builder about which is best for your home.
