Our Top Bathroom Flooring Picks

1st Aug 2023

The bathroom is one of the most important and frequently used rooms in your home. Having the right type of flooring for this space can make a big difference in both its durability and aesthetic appeal. When it comes to choosing the perfect floor for your bathroom, there are many factors to consider, including moisture resistance, slip-resistance, appearance, maintenance requirements, and sustainability. With the right combination of these elements, you can achieve a beautiful and functional bathroom floor that will last for years to come. 

Things to Consider

When selecting a floor for your bathroom, one of the most important considerations is moisture resistance. Bathrooms are exposed to high levels of humidity, making them susceptible to water damage and mould growth. Therefore, it's essential to choose a floor material that is designed for this type of environment and blocks out moisture. Popular options include ceramic tile and vinyl which are highly resistant to water and easy to maintain. 

As well as moisture resistance, you'll also need to think about slip-resistance. Bathrooms can be hazardous spaces if they don't have the proper flooring, so make sure to pick a material with enough traction to keep you safe. Many types of tile and vinyl are available in styles with a textured finish, which provide good grip for extra security.

At The Wood Flooring Co. we advise against wood flooring in the bathroom. This is due to wood being susceptible to swelling when soaked with water which will cause irreparable damage. This is also the case for laminate flooring; although the top layer is far more impermeable to water, laminate is still fundamentally manufactured from wood and so can never be totally waterproof. For peace of mind and ease of maintenance, we advise to avoid these flooring types and instead stick to better-suited alternatives. 

No-Vinyl Tiles

Our No-Vinyl Tiles offer all of the practical benefits of vinyl, but with none of the PVC. If you're looking for an environmentally conscious flooring choice, this is the product for you. In contrast to LVT flooring which is made from polyvinyl chloride (PVC), our No-Vinyl Tiles are completely PVC and plasticiser free making them fully recyclable and non toxic throughout their lifecycle.

This eco flooring collection is 100% waterproof and suitable for all areas of the home including bathrooms, utilities and wet areas. Each layer of the tile is completely non-porous meaning it will not absorb dirt, liquids or other substances. This makes it extremely easy to maintain and keep clean for a hygienic environment. 

Available in a range of contemporary designs and colours, our No-Vinyl Tiles come as close as possible to the look and feel of a real wood floor. With an embossed surface finish and authentic grain, these tiles are suitable for heavy domestic use as well as light commercial use.

With an easy click installation system and integrated underlay, they also offer quick and efficient fitting, without the requirement for adhesive.

We're so confident they'll live up to your high expectations, they even come with a lifetime residential guarantee!

Luxury Vinyl Tiles

Our small but mighty collection of vinyl tiles are amazingly authentic with a brushed surface texture and 4-sided bevelled edge to emulate the look and feel of real wood. 

Highly durable and waterproof, they come with a 10 year warranty for residential use and a pretty price tag of £29.40 per m2.

The natural warm oak tones make this flooring collection suitable for both modern and traditional interiors, whilst the large width will create a feeling of added space. Suitable for heavy domestic use, as well as light commercial, this floor is suitable for all rooms including bathrooms and kitchen.

Another added benefit of vinyl tile flooring is that it is quiet and warm underfoot, in contrast to ceramic tiles which can be a little cold for bathroom environments - especially in the colder seasons. 

With an added repellent against dirt and bacteria, our vinyl tile flooring is the ideal choice for bathroom environments.
