7 Bathroom Floor Trends in 2017

Written by Posted On Friday, 13 January 2017 16:45

The bathroom floor doesn’t get the attention it deserves when it comes to remodeling, and yet it is a critical point of any décor. Paying attention to this much underrated piece of your home’s décor could transform not just your bathroom but the space around it as well. When it comes to choosing bathroom floor styles, it is much easier to go with what’s working for others instead of inventing a whole new style that might backfire. If you’re looking to remodel your bathroom floor, here are 7 trends that will come in handy when it comes to inspiration.

Ceramic tiles

This is one of the styles you can never go wrong with. It’s timeless and appealing and very easy to maintain. Installing ceramic tiles is easy and fairly priced, and it goes with just about any décor that you choose for the rest of the house. If by some bad fortune the tiles break within the period of use, replacing or repairing the same will not cause a dent in your pocket.

Stone tiles

Stone tiles are distinct and have some sort of understated elegance and Victorian royalty about them, especially when well maintained. These work with particular décor themes, require regular and oft-costly maintenance and are costly to install. Therefore be sure of the commitment you’ll be making before choosing this type of tiles.

Porcelain tiles

Porcelain tiles are a good choice if you are looking for something durable that’s easy to clean. While you might pay extra for porcelain tiles, they are made to last and you will not need to constantly replace them. The color of porcelain runs down through the tile and even as the years go by and the tiles wear, the color persists.

Heated tile floors

Over the years, the cost of heated floors has gone down, allowing homeowners this luxury that is very convenient for the cold winter months. You have two options to consider when it comes to choosing heated tile floors, and that is electric and hydronic heating. For the former, there are electric coils that run underneath the floors while hydronic heating relies on tubes that are connected to the boiler system in the house.

Laminate and faux-wood tiles

If you want that wooden look in your bathroom, go for laminate tiles. These tiles are versatile, reasonably priced and easy to maintain. The downside to this choice is that if any of the tiles gets damaged you’ll need to replace it-it cannot be repaired.

Vinyl

This low cost option comes with very many designs and is low maintenance. It works well for high traffic bathrooms and you can choose between sheets, tiles and plank. Vinyl tiles are easy to install and you can choose a design that mimics ceramic or stone tiles. As such you get an almost similar effect on your décor, but at a much cheaper cost.

Patterns and textures

Patterns and textures are in, so if you are looking to remodel your bathroom floor do not be afraid to go bold. Whether you are looking to add some color to your bathroom or step away from the usual squares, then patterns, textures and designs are what you should be looking into.

 

And there you have it, with so many options, there is no reason why your bathroom floor should be boring.
