While often one of the smallest rooms in the home, a bathroom can still have tremendous visual impact. And anything that you do to change the design and décor of a bathroom will significantly transform a space of that size. Bathroom flooring, more than anything else, can have a stunning effect on the overall look of a bathroom; choose bathroom flooring wisely and you will achieve the bathroom of your dreams – or a bathroom that will meet your temporary needs.

Those who purchase homes as investment properties before doing renovations and reselling the home – also referred to as “flipping" a property – find that updating a bathroom adds significantly to the value of the home. In the spirit of these updates, replacing the vanity, toilet, and bathroom flooring – along with making lighting and decorative changes - with go a long way towards transforming the space. In this instance, bathroom flooring neither has to be expensive nor complex. Neutral, affordable bathroom flooring that can be easily installed will increase the value of the home without the necessity of significant effort or financial investment.

For those who are interested in modifying the bathrooms of their own homes – or a home in which they want to stay - the choices of bathroom flooring are endless. From ceramic tile and marble to linoleum and hardwood, choosing a bathroom floor is only limited by your imagination and budget.

It is also important to look at bathroom flooring as a larger picture. While ceramic tile is beautiful to look at, it can also be unforgiving if someone should happen to fall. If you choose ceramic tile you may want to consider an area rug for when you step out of the shower. The same considerations apply to hardwood and marble. There is always the option of high-end laminate bathroom flooring that is made to resemble ceramic tile but at much lower price point and safer material.

Be mindful as well of the moisture levels in the bathroom area. Because of the water factor the bathroom has a much higher level of humidity. In smaller spaces, water can cause significant damage to bathroom flooring – so make sure that you protect your floor and choose material that will hold up to humidity levels.

Bathroom flooring can utterly transform a bathroom. Whether you are looking to update your space, define a theme, or design your dream bathroom, your choice of flooring will set the tone for your entire bathroom.
