After you've spent a great deal of time deciding which of the many styles of bathroom vanities and other bath cabinets you like, you might be wondering what to do with the floor. After all, the bath gets dirty, wet and steamy on a routine basis. What kind of flooring will both accent your bath cabinets and give you peace of mind that your investment will be easy to maintain?
Even if you have created a classic traditional bathroom style statement, choose hardwood flooring for your full bath. Even if it is warm and inviting, it is sensitive to water pools and steam over time.
However, there are other types of flooring that can be made to mimic wood or stone that would work great in a bath. One option is vinyl flooring. The protective top coats used on this type of flooring, such as urethane, make it easy to clean up and resistant to scratching. You can learn about two different types of vinyl flooring now offered: felt and fiberglass.
Vinyl tile utilizes a four-layered construction including a protective layer, clear film layer, printed design layer and vinyl backing layer. It is also water resistant and comfortable to walk on. However, vinyl flooring products do not have as long a life expectancy as ceramic tile and do not increase your home's value like higher-end products will, so you should compare it to other options before you make a final decision.
Either way, the numerous styles of flooring for bathroom now offered by Armstrong will ensure you can find one that accents your lifestyle and the look you desire in your new bath.
