Tile flooring is common in bathrooms and offers a nice alternative to hardwoods, which can get warped if they are exposed to too much water. If you decide to put ceramic tile on the floor, look for a grade of 1 or 2, a water-absorption rating of less than 7 percent and a coefficient of friction above .60, which are slip-resistant and can stand up to water. Also pay attention to porosity; you’ll 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 as it’s inexpensive and practical (safe, easy to install and maintain).
Though you might not want or even use a bath tub, every home should have one to appease buyers who dream of a spa tub or those with young children (or dogs!). Take advantage of the shower/tub area to define zones in the room and create an accent wall by changing up the tile you use. You’ll want to select a tile that has a water absorption rating of less than 3% (lower than what’s recommended for the floors) and has good traction (a coefficient of friction that’s greater than or equal to .60). If you’re debating between an open or closed shower take a look at our pros and cons to help make your decision.
Choosing to make a personal design statement by installing a unique bathroom vanity can be a good start to create a space that reflects your personal styles and tastes. Many designers and creative craftspeople visit tag and yard sales, estate sales, flea markets, and even salvage yards looking for an unusual piece of furniture to convert into a unique bathroom vanity.
Sleek with rectilinear forms, these pieces are unabashedly contemporary and available in a range of colors and finishes allowing for individual expression to unfold. An extensive collection, Memento is comprised of wall and surface-mounted washbasins, vanities, cabinets, mirrors, toilets and a bidet. With the recent arrival of new light wood furniture, the timeless style of Memento is further highlighted. Made of real oak veneer, its rich texture creates visual contrasts in the bath.
