Bathroom Flooring - Westchester NY
Finding the right flooring (and wall) choice for your bathroom
Bathroom flooring needs to serve both form and function equally. Protecting against moisture, warmth underfoot, durability and style are of significant importance when selecting flooring for this room it sets the tone and mood of the entire room.
For these reasons vinyl, stone, porcelain and ceramic tiles are most popular; however, hardwood flooring is increasing in popularity as well – in powder rooms (where there is no shower/bath).

You’ll also want to consider slip-resistant bathroom flooring. Many vinyl and ceramic flooring options come with textured surfaces to make these floors just as safe as beautiful and durable. If you enjoy the look of tile but worry it will be too slick, consider using smaller tiles. The grout between each tile will provide a non-skid surface.
While porous flooring options such as wood and stone aren’t often used for bathroom flooring, that doesn’t mean you should overlook them completely. Both can be sealed to withstand the humidity and occasional splashes that are common in bathrooms. With regular maintenance and close attention paid to standing water, however, both stone and wood can do the job.
You can get fun and creative with tiling on the walls. Add a natural stone border (sometimes called listello) or a few rows of glass or metallic inserts for some pop. These are the things that will make your bathroom truly look special.
