There are many options for bathroom flooring so first consider our tips for selecting a material for your floors, which will help you choose what works best for your space. In general, larger floor tiles and patterns are subtle and better for small bathrooms. If you put ceramic tile on the floor look for a grade of 1 or 2, a water absorption rating of less than 7% and a coefficient of friction above .60, which are slip resistant and stand up to water. You’ll also want a more impervious tile for the floor because of exposure to water. Vinyl feels better on bare feet than ceramic tile and it’s one of the more popular flooring choices due to it being inexpensive and practical (safe, easy to install and maintain). One feature that buyers are looking for in today’s market is radiant heated flooring, which not only ensures warm feet in the colder months but also makes the floor dry faster, reducing the chance of slips or falls. It’s also energy efficient.
Update a bathroom easily with colorful bathroom decor. A red framed mirror inspired the color scheme for this bathroom design. When you accessorize with color in a bathroom, stick to one color to create a color theme. If you want to include some pattern, restrict it to one item such as a shower curtain, to create a focal point and to keep the design from looking too busy.
Adding an accent tile is a great way to update a bathroom. Choose one wall to be the focal point for your room. For bathrooms, the back wall tends to be the best. Add a colored mosaic or patterned tile. In this room we used a green mosaic tile to evoke nature and to compliment the wood finish on the vanity.
Try a dark wall color to create an intimate and inviting feeling in a bathroom. When you use a dark wall color in a bathroom keep the ceiling finish light or you’ll make the room feel smaller. This bathroom has a patterned tile above the tub and a dark lavender-grey wall color that matches the background of the accent tile. The dark wall color highlights the accent wall and make it the focal point of the room.
