Engineered hardwoods look great, are warm underfoot, and their factory pre-finished topcoat helps to resist wear even in high-traffic spaces like bathrooms.
Bathrooms require durable, easy-to-clean flooring that can handle daily traffic. The most important factor to consider when choosing a bathroom floor is exposure to moisture. It’s also important to consider who will use the bathroom and how much traffic it will receive. Is this your family's primary bath shared with children? Is the space a guest bathroom not used very often? Or is it a powder room without a tub or shower? All of these factors are essential to determine what type of flooring and window treatments are right for your space.
Considerations for Bathroom Floors
Some items to keep in mind when selecting the right floor for a bathroom include:
- Daily foot traffic and bathroom usage
- Humidity from showers
- Spills or overflow from bathtubs
- Easy care and maintenance

Bathroom Flooring Ideas
Laminate flooring is durable and easy to clean. Its realistic wood visuals provide your bathroom with a warm, inviting look. And it’s stain resistant to help keep bathrooms looking great.
Ceramic tile and porcelain tile set the stage for a beautiful bathroom. They provide a rich, textured, timeless style that is exceptionally durable.
This economical flooring is not only moisture and slip resistant; it’s also warmer and more comfortable underfoot than tile. Vinyl tile can also be installed without grout, making it easier to clean frequently.
Vinyl plank, a budget-friendly wood look floor, can provide excellent moisture, soil, and stain resistance in bathrooms for less than real hardwood.
Sheet vinyl is a durable, budget-friendly option that provides the look of natural tile and stone. However, sheet vinyl is softer underfoot than tile.
Want to let light in and maintain bathroom privacy? There are plenty of options for window treatments that can work well in rooms that have high humidity levels, like bathrooms.
