• Bathroom Flooring: So Many Options, what to choose?

    When choosing your bathroom flooring there are many different types to choose from. Here are a few ideas of bathroom flooring that our designers have in mind. Ceramic tile tops the lists of our expert designers at Somers Kitchen Bath remodel in Somers NY. One of the biggest reasons is that it offers variety, durability, and good looks. One of the other great benefits is that ceramic tile is fairly inexpensive and highly waterproof. One of the disadvantages of ceramic tile is that it is cold and can be slippery when wet. One idea to help with the tile being slippery is to choose textured finishes or smaller tiles that require more grout, this will give the flooring better traction. Another option available is Vinyl flooring for your new bathroom. If you are budget-conscious, our bathroom designers say that this is one of their favorites. One of the advantages of Vinyl is that they come in 6- or 12-foot-wide sheets or as tiles that are typically 12- to 18- inches square. Sheet Vinyl is seamless and will not come up like tiles tend to do and is soft underfoot, most will resist moisture, and the best part is that it is easy to clean. For many customers, hardwood flooring in their bathroom is their favorite. There are few materials that can match the warm, inviting characteristics of wood. The biggest problem with hardwood floors is the moisture issues, which gives the reason to be cautious. You can still consider hardwood floors for your bathroom as a viable option. Our bathroom contractors will make sure to put on extra coats of varnish, and make sure there are no gaps where moisture can sneak in. If you are willing to wipe up any water spills right away and install a high-efficiency vent to help keep humidity in check then hardwood floors can work for you in your new bathroom. If you're not up to the work, then hardwood floors for your bathroom might not be the best option for you. You're in luck though our expert designers have other ideas to help in deciding what flooring is best for your bathroom. How about carpet, natural stone, or cork. These ideas will bring your bathroom oasis dreams to life. Let our expert bathroom designers help you decide what bathroom flooring is best for your needs and wants.
