There are many options for bathroom flooring so first consider our tips for selecting a material for your floors, which will help you choose what works best for your space. In general, larger floor tiles and patterns are subtle and better for small bathrooms. If you put ceramic tile on the floor look for a grade of 1 or 2, a water absorption rating of less than 7% and a coefficient of friction above .60, which are slip resistant and stand up to water. You'll also want a more impervious tile for the floor because of exposure to water. Vinyl feels better on bare feet than ceramic tile and it's one of the more popular flooring choices due to it being inexpensive and practical (safe, easy to install and maintain). One feature that buyers are looking for in today's market is radiant heated flooring, which not only ensures warm feet in the colder months but also makes the floor dry faster, reducing the chance of slips or falls. It's also energy efficient.
Some key things to think about are: Is it a family bathroom? If so, you'll probably want to factor in lots of storage space. Do you always shower and rarely bathe? Consider a standalone shower or wet room instead of installing a bath you won't use. If you like baths and showers, a bath with a shower it gives you a flexible option. Is space at a premium? Think about how you could incorporate storage cupboards on the walls rather than floor – maybe above the bath or even built in underneath. Do you want to use your bathroom to relax in? Consider getting a freestanding bath for a luxurious feel, and having somewhere close by to store candles and magazines. Are you a couple sharing the bathroom? How about getting two basins to make getting ready in the morning less chaotic? If someone will be using it to do make-up or dress in, then you'll want to make sure there is plenty of light and a decent-sized mirror. Asking yourself these questions will help you refine the little changes to make or elements to incorporate that will make a lot of difference to your bathroom and your enjoyment of it.
