Small Bathroom Floor Tips

Small bathrooms are fantastic. They are cheaper to floor, faster to paint, and easier to clean. Cue segue into a discussion of floors for tiny bathrooms:

 

  • Pros: Tiny floor space means it’s possible to ramp up your floor budget. Some homeowners take this as a chance to install high-end floors, like real travertine. Of course, it’ll all depend upon how much money you want to spend. However, consider that type of flooring costs as high as $10/sq. ft. and will only be $550 dollars for a 50 sq. ft. bathroom. So, spend away, baby!
  • Cons: Be careful with the seams. Prominent seams that are made more noticeable by grout which highly contrasts with tiles, may give a ponderous, weighty look to your small bathroom. Utilize grout that does not stand out as much.

Ceramic Spiral Tile

Here is an idea which does not range that far from normal: spiral mosaic tile.

It’s unglazed porcelain mosaic which may be used either for the bathroom walls or flooring. It is four rectangular, white tiles that are spiraled around a black, square tile. Simplistic, yet effective.

 

 Luxury Vinyl Plank Floors

However, you say you do not like vinyl tile. You believe it is plain and mousy? Luxury vinyl plank flooring might be your best bet. Vinyl has really come a long way with this product ​since it appears more like real wood than ever before.

 

Waterproof Laminate

Laminate floors are among the smartest ideas because they combine the appearance of wood, without wood’s bad performance in baths or without having to “go LVP,” if vinyl is bothersome to you.

 

Installation

Should you hire a professional or install natural stone yourself? Stone may be tricky; therefore, there isn’t any shame in employing a professional tile installer like Drew’s Roofing and Home Repair.
