Throughout your lifetime, you will most likely be faced with a small bathroom. Although they typically have negative connotations associated with them, small bathrooms have big potential. Plus, small spaces mean less to clean, design, and even money spent. To start off your bathroom remodel on the right foot, we have created a simple list of flooring ideas for a small bathroom. Let’s take a look!
Flooring Ideas for a Small Bathroom:
A lot of times, our minds go straight to small tiles for small spaces; however, we would like to counter this concept with the fact that small spaces should have larger tiles. You may already be hesitant about reading this advice and wondering how this could possibly make sense. Let us explain. In a small bathroom, if you decide to use small tiles, it can emphasize the fact that the space is smaller than usual. But, if you utilize large tiles, it can make the space feel bigger and more visually open.
Let us be honest, we would never recommend traditional hardwood floors for your bathroom. But, flooring manufacturers saw the niche for this and created luxury vinyl. Luxury Vinyl mirrors the look of hardwood floors without the worries of warping in a bathroom. Luxury Vinyl is an excellent solution for a small bathroom that you want to add a little class and a rustic touch.
Laminate floors resemble the look of hardwood floors. It can also be an excellent substitution for hardwood floors, especially in bathrooms. Laminate is extremely durable and affordable for the consumer. It also comes in an array of different colors and styles for the consumers to match it to their style preference.
We will preface this by saying that natural stone is not the most inexpensive item on this list. But, if you have the budget, natural stone can be a gorgeous addition to your small bathroom. Natural stone adds elegance and beauty to your small bathroom without sacrificing moisture-resistance. Because natural stone’s surface is porous, it will need to be sealed periodically. Fortunately, the sealant will protect your floors from absorbing particles, which can break down the stone overtime or potentially cause bacterial growth, and the price will not break the bank.
