When you decide to remodel or renovate your bathroom, one of the most important decisions you will need to make will be which style and type of flooring suits your décor the best. Here at Construct-All USA, Inc. we want our valued clients to understand that the look or overall appearance of your bathroom flooring is not the only thing you should take into consideration. With that said we have some useful tips for helping you choose the ideal bathroom flooring for your remodeling project.
TIP ONE: PERFORM YOUR DUE DILIGENCE AND RESEARCH ALL YOUR BATHROOM FLOORING OPTIONS
Vinyl – Vinyl is by far one of the most popular bathroom flooring choices by many homeowners and indeed it has its benefits. For starters, it typically comes in wide 6 or 12-foot rolls which makes your installation project quick and easy. When you choose vinyl flooring you can enjoy a seamless look to your bathroom floor, a look most homeowners give favor to. In addition, vinyl offers consumers another popular option in vinyl squares or tiles, both of which are a whole lot easier to handle and to install. However, these tiles or squares have more seams which means they can quickly and easily collect dirt, mildew and other particles. Vinyl flooring comes in a wide range of patterns and colors which makes it easy for you to find the perfect design that meets with your bathroom project and décor.
Ceramic Tile – Ceramic typically comes in squares. When choosing ceramic tiles, it is important to take into consideration the porosity rating since bathrooms typically have very moist atmospheres. You want to be sure to choose the right type of tile that is minimally porous.
Laminate – Laminate flooring is not easily damaged and is very easy to clean which is why it is such a popular choice by those with very active families. Laminate is quite affordable and allows you to give your bathroom a whole new stylish look without having to drain your pocketbook.
Natural Stone – This very classy type of flooring is typically cut into square tiles, usually measuring 12 inches by 12 inches. It is remarkably easy to clean and maintain, but requires a sturdy subfloor that is strong enough to provide the support needed.
Hardwood – Many people enjoy the warmth and appealing look of hardwood floors throughout their living space and often times will choose to extend their hardwood flooring into their bathrooms in their efforts to create a consistent cohesive look. Though not typically the bathroom flooring of choice, there are some consumers who prefer this look.
TIP TWO: BE SURE TO SHOP AROUND THE MANY BATHROOM FLOORING VENDORS
As is the case with any product, prices and materials will vary from vendor to vendor. Some vendors will present with drastically different prices, which is why we want to encourage our clients to go out and shop around and get a few estimates before making that final decision or that final bathroom flooring purchase.
TIP THREE: BE DILIGENT AND DETAILED WHEN MEASURING YOUR BATHROOM FLOORS
When you are knee deep in a bathroom remodeling project, the last thing you want to find yourself faced with is not having enough flooring to finish the project. We highly recommend you buy a bit more than you actually need since it is better to be safe rather than sorry. This really comes into play when you choose stone or ceramic tiles for your bathroom flooring since there are apt to be a few tiles that may end up cracked or broken.
