Waterproof but slip-resistant

This might be a no-brainer, but when you’re installing flooring in your bathroom, you need to ensure that the flooring is waterproof. Thankfully, gone are the days when carpet flooring was installed in bathrooms. When your wet feet hit the flooring after a shower, the last thing you want is to slip, so ensure the option you choose is slip-resistant. This logic also applies to areas like kitchens that can see lots of water use.

The top choices for both waterproof and slip-resistant flooring include sheet vinyl and luxury vinyl: the most versatile flooring option. Phenix offers stain-resistant bold vinyl options, while Cali Bamboo is a sustainable option with high-quality slip-resistant materials. Finally, Southwind should be your choice if you’re looking for an authentic hardwood floor appearance with the waterproof options of luxury vinyl. 

Coordinated flooring 

If you are looking to coordinate your bathroom flooring with your shower tile or wainscoting, you may want to consider color-matched tile for your flooring,

Look for the brands Dal Tile and Emser Tile, which each offer a multitude of styles and colors, and materials ranging from ceramic to porcelain and natural stone. If you want a classic look to your bathroom, tile flooring is a fantastic easy-to-clean option.

When installing your flooring, make sure to have it done correctly the first time by contacting a reputable flooring store or experienced installer.
