Bathroom Flooring Beltsville, MD
Your Bathroom Floor...
Your bathroom is an important place. You get ready for your day in there, get ready to go to sleep in there, and usually visit it numerous times throughout the day. As such, your flooring needs to stand up to all the activity and foot traffic your bathroom will see in a day! At Contract Carpet One in Beltsville, MD, we’re here to tell you that advancements in flooring technology mean that tile isn’t the only bathroom flooring choice anymore (although it is still a great one!) Now you can have a floor that performs well and fits your style, too.

Read below to find out which floors can stand up to your bathroom activities:
While it might not be the most common, carpet can be a suitable bathroom flooring pick. Although there is a greater chance for your floor to get soaked in a bathroom, there are some carpets made to hold up, such as stain and mildew-resistant carpets that are treated with a waterproof seal. Don’t forget about the backing if you choose to put down carpet in your bathroom, as it will need to be waterproof as well.
Hardwood can be a finicky choice for a room with so much moisture as it tends to warp or cup. However, if handled correctly with a water resistant seal, hardwood is a possible bathroom choice. So, if you have wood flooring in the rest of the house, you may want to continue with the warm and inviting look of hardwood all the way into the bathroom! You will just have to monitor moisture and make sure to wipe up.
Easy to install and available in a variety of colors and patterns, vinyl is a great and popular choice for bathroom flooring. Vinyl can also resemble hardwood and tile without costing as much. Vinyl is quite moisture-resistant so will be long-lasting in a bathroom. However, vinyl is one of the harder floors to clean.
Ceramic and stone tiles work well in a bathroom. Tile is such a popular flooring option for the bathroom since it is waterproof, stain resistant and low maintenance when it comes to cleaning. Bathroom floor tile is also very durable and stands up well to lots of use. Just make sure to lay something like a bathmat down since tiles tend to become pretty slippery!
Laminate is an engineered flooring and is a popular choice since it is budget-friendly and comes in a variety of styles. Laminate can be made to look like anything from hardwood to stone to even grass or sand and is also easy to clean and a durable floor. But, laminate shares some of hardwood's properties, including being affected by moisture. Use the same caution with laminate in your bathroom as mentioned above.
