More serious accidents occur in the bathroom than in any other room of the home. Both children and adults are susceptible to falls caused by slippery floors. For that reason you are going to want to a floor that is as slip resistant as possible. While you may not be able to prevent all accidents that occur within the bathroom you can greatly reduce them by providing the most slip resistant floor possible.
All bathrooms have three characteristic in common. They have wet surfaces, high temperatures and even higher humidity. These three characteristics make the bathroom a breeding ground for molds and other fungus that may be detrimental to your families health. Therefore it is essential to choose a flooring that can be sealed tightly to prevent water from getting into small cracks and that is easy to keep clean and fungus free.
Ability To Withstand Wear and Tear
You are going to want to choose a flooring that has the ability to withstand years of wear and tear under normal use. While most bathroom flooring has the ability to withstand such wear and tear, not every type of flooring is suitable for every kind of bathroom. For example, although tile floors are extremely durable they can break easily under normal every day traffic if they are installed on a floor that has bumps or holes in it. Likewise, since laminate flooring uses a floating floor it may be difficult to use this material in certain bathrooms due to the toilet and the sink.
Let's face it no one wants an ugly bathroom. You are going to want a floor that is not only durable but looks good as well. Finding a type of flooring that you are going to be contented to look at for the next several years simply has to be something that is considered when choosing the right flooring for your home.
Ease of Installation
If you are going to have a professional install your new bathroom flooring this may not be a consideration, however, if you are installing the flooring yourself you are going to want to consider how easy that new flooring is going to be to install.
Cost is also going to be a huge consideration when choosing the right flooring. If you have a limited budget there are going to be some flooring options that are simply out of your spending range. So figuring how much you can afford on flooring cost before shopping can save a lot of headaches when you actually go looking for that new flooring.
Knowing what to look for when choosing your bathroom flooring will guarantee that your search will meet with success.
