The best flooring for bathrooms

The best flooring for bathrooms

Bathroom flooring has a big job. Known as the "wettest room in the house," that space is steamy, humid, and, depending on the size of your family, it can have a lot of foot traffic. It also sets the tone of the entire house, so it needs to be highly stylish and waterproof, and durable. We invite you to explore our inventory at our flooring company.


Whether porcelain or ceramic, this is a time-honored classic. Porcelain is waterproof and heavier, so it's ideal for your bathroom. Porcelain comes in countless colors and patterns and can look like anything, from wood and stone to fabric and leather. You'll be amazed when you see all the choices at our flooring store in Oceanside, CA.

As for ceramics, the 4 X 4 squares are thinner but strong and waterproof when glazed and are best for moderate foot traffic. Another ceramic, the tiny but durable, highly decorated mosaics, are now trending for the bath. People not only prefer them for the visual appeal but also the many grout lines increase the traction or "grip."

Waterproof laminate flooring

Long a popular choice for wood looks, people clamored for a laminate installed in every room in the house, including the kitchen and bath. Now they have it, with a unique construction that makes the product spill-proof, eliminating concerns about staining, peeling, and rippling.

All vinyl flooring

Stylish, waterproof, durable, and low maintenance vinyl has been a preferred choice for the bathroom floor for years. Many like sheet vinyl because there are no seams, and that blocks any water and, some think, makes installation more straightforward because they don't have to deal with seam alignment. Luxury vinyl flooring (LVF) is now considered a trend; it can look like wood, stone, or tile, follow the trends, and can be cut to mimic hardwood board or groutable squares to echo stone and tile.

Waterproof vinyl flooring is a newer, more advanced version of luxury vinyl. It offers the highest level of protection with a thicker, more durable surface. It uses the WPC (wood plastic composite) or SPC (stone plastic composite) cores that will never peel or ripple, no matter how much water there is or for how long. Keep in mind that it has all the characteristics of luxury vinyl, including the high-end style, easy maintenance, and simple installation.
