Bathroom floor tiles come in a wide variety of colors, materials and styles. But these are only a few of the things to consider when choosing tile as bathroom flooring. Comfort is another factor – how will those bathroom floor tiles feel under bare feet? Cool porcelain tile may be great in summer months, but not in the winter. If your feet are especially sensitive to cold, you may want to consider adding radiant heat beneath your floor tile for added comfort.
Obviously, floor tile must be able to withstand damp conditions and the occasional spill. That’s why ceramic tile, vinyl, and natural stone are all popular bathroom flooring choices. Many now come with subtle texture to prevent dangerous slips and falls.
When considering bathroom floor tile, don’t overlook less traditional choices such as bamboo flooring and engineered hardwood. Though technically a grass, bamboo flooring is often grouped with hard woods and is prized for its eco-friendliness. Engineered wood flooring has a plywood base that stands up to moisture and a top veneer that has the look and feel of real hardwood. And for powder rooms and half-baths, solid hardwood flooring is acceptable.
