Bathroom is often wet and damp so the floor can be slippery. Choosing the right material, therefore, is essential to ensure safety. But to rely solely on the choice of material would be unwise, because functionality also depends on the well-thought-out design. Here are five types of bathroom flooring with various materials and designs for your consideration.

By installing wooden textured floor tiles, your bathroom floor can be water-resistant, long-lasting, and practical. It can also conjure up a warm ambience and an appealing look in your bathroom.

Subway tiles are often found on kitchen and bathroom wall, but this material also works well for bathroom flooring. Like mosaic floor tiles, the small size of subway tiles increases the amount of friction on the floor surface which makes it suitable for bathroom. You can install these subway tiles from the bathroom floor to the wall to make it look interesting.

Hexagon tiles

Square and rectangular are not the only options for bathroom flooring. Hexagonal tiles can be an alternative especially with the high amount of grout that makes the floor less slippery. Aesthetic-wise, this beehive-shape tile has its own appeal. You can use only one or even combine two colours to get an appealing look.

Those are five types of bathroom safe yet stylish flooring that you can choose from. Each choice comes in various shapes and designs that you can tailor to your desired bathroom style. You can also visit Archify to search for selected bathroom tiles that suit your needs.
