More about Bathroom Vinyl Flooring
Trying to find flooring for bathrooms can be tricky, especially if you’re on a tight budget or need a floor installing very quickly. Bathroom vinyl floor is made from a resilient, synthetic material and is a fantastic option due to its hardwearing nature and waterproof properties. With so many different styles to choose from, there’s sure to be a vinyl floor for bathroom for you.
Why should you choose vinyl for bathrooms?
Vinyl is one of the most versatile flooring solutions which is why it is perfect for use on your bathroom floor. It comes in rolls, tiles or planks meaning it’s extremely easy to install. Vinyl flooring requires little maintenance when fitted other than keeping it clean.
One of the biggest reasons why people opt for bathroom floor lino over other flooring types is that it is water resistant. Unlike laminate and wooden floors which can warp or become damaged when exposed to moisture, vinyl will remain in good condition, providing any excessive amounts of water are mopped up.
Many styles of bathroom lino flooring come with antibacterial properties in their construction which ensures your bathroom stays hygienic. There are also vinyl options which are suitable for use with underfloor heating systems, providing the floor does not come into contact with the heat elements. You’ll also need to ensure the heat does not exceed 27 degrees. This means you can still enjoy the comfort of a cosy bathroom floor without the added expense of traditional tiles.
What are the best styles of vinyl for bathrooms?
While all styles of vinyl are technically suitable to use in bathrooms, some will naturally work better with a traditional bathroom aesthetic.
VINYL TILES FOR BATHROOMS
If you decide against installing a ceramic or stone tile floor in your bathroom, vinyl floor tiles might be the next best thing. These are fitted using the same kind of click system that is usually found with laminate flooring. Vinyl bathroom tiles look just like the real thing, with slate, stone and marble effects to give the appearance of regular tiles. As vinyl is naturally softer and warmer to the touch, this will give you an inviting surface to place your feet when stepping out of the bath or shower.
VINYL PLANKS FOR BATHROOMS
For a more contemporary aesthetic, vinyl planks can give the appearance of a wooden floor in your bathroom. Whether you choose oak effect, dark wood, white wash, grey or walnut wood effect, there’s sure to be a style that complements your décor. Just like vinyl bathroom tiles, these planks are fitted with a click system ensuring a better fit and a water resistant floor.
ROLLED BATHROOM FLOORING VINYL
The most common and classic style of vinyl comes in a roll, almost like carpet. This is usually the most affordable style of bathroom lino and offers the best of both worlds as it comes in many different designs including tile and wood effects among others. It is easy to fit, ensuring the subfloor is completely clean and even, and takes little skill to ensure it stays firmly in place.
