Bathroom flooring can be a difficult thing to get right, and it’s so important considering how much the room is used throughout the day. Vinyl flooring is one of the best options available, and there are many benefits which come from it. With that in mind, this post will highlight some of the benefits you can expect if you choose some vinyl flooring for your bathroom.
Water and slip resistant
Being water and slip resistant is essential for a bathroom floor. We’ve all had those scary moments when you step out of the bath or shower, and you slip or have a bit of a wobble. Having a floor which is slip resistant is a great safety feature to add to your bathroom. Water resistance is also very important. You don’t want the flooring in your bathroom to be damaged by water, some flooring options such as wood or laminate can curl or become distorted when it gets wet.
With all of the products we use on a daily basis, it’s easy to understand how things get spilt or dropped in our bathroom. Because of this, it’s important to have a floor which is easy to clean and maintain. Vinyl flooring is much easier to clean than other popular bathroom flooring options such as tiles. You simply need to wipe it clean, and you don’t have to worry about it staining as you would with a flooring material like wood or some light-coloured stones.
Walking into your bathroom first thing in the morning, you want the flooring to feel lovely underfoot. One of the great benefits of luxury vinyl flooring is how comfortable it is to walk on. Also, vinyl flooring is compatible with underfloor heating which can create a fantastic warm feeling when you enter your bathroom. On a cold winter’s day, the last thing you want is a freezing cold floor while you’re waiting for the shower to heat up. Underfloor heating creates a warm floor with either warm water running through pipes or wires carrying an electrical charge.
Getting the right design for your bathroom flooring is crucial to bringing your bathroom style together. With vinyl flooring, there are a large number of options in a range of styles. For bathrooms, stone options are often very popular as they work really well with the clean light colours of most bathroom appliances. Tile patters also work really well to create some contrast. There are also a number of laying patterns which can be created with vinyl flooring.
So there you go, vinyl tiles have some great benefits which can really enhance your bathroom and make it a lovely place to relax. There are different pricing options for vinyl, as there are with all flooring types, depending on the option you go for, and you should always remember the cost of installation may be added onto the price of your vinyl tiles. It’s always worth clarifying this with a retailer so you don’t get any surprises later on and you can just enjoy your lovely new floor.
