When engaging flooring installation contractors during the construction or remodeling of your bathroom, you might be overwhelmed by the numerous options that are available to you when it comes to flooring. Since wetness is the primary concern when it comes to bathroom flooring, most of the popular flooring options include vinyl (and other form of plastic) flooring materials, porcelain/stone tiles or concrete floors. While each of these options has their benefits, nothing beats waterproof porcelain or stone tiles for your bathroom flooring needs. Here is why:
- Tiles are easy to clean
Your bathroom is a sensitive part of your house. Not only do you, and your family, spend a lot of time in the bathroom on a daily basis; the constant dampness makes it prone to serving as an ecosystem for disease causing micro-organisms. The best characteristic of porcelain and stone tiles is that they are completely waterproof.
This means that, if you are working with a professional and competent tile flooring installation company, then there is no risk of any wetness seeping into your sub-flooring. Any dirt that is on your tiles can be easily cleaned with a rubber squeegee or mopping device. This ease of cleaning is unmatched by other flooring options.
- Tiles are durable
While porcelain is thought of as a fragile material, once properly installed, it can withstand a surprisingly high amount of impact without cracking. As with most flooring material, the key is working with a competent flooring installer, such as Tampa’s World of Floors Florida. Luckily, durability is not a major concern if you choose to work with stone tiles rather than porcelain tiles.
- Tiles are highly customizable
When it comes to bathroom floors, it is not all about functionality; you also have to consider the aesthetic appeal of the flooring material you are using. This is the domain where flooring tiles outshine all the other flooring options available. Nothing matches the customizability of flooring tiles.
Flooring tiles come in all colors and designs, depending on your preference. Whether you want to have a specific theme for your bathroom, or you want it to conform to the overall color scheme adopted by your home, you will find flooring tiles that meet your needs. You can even further personalize your bathroom floor by working with tile flooring stores that can custom make your tiles with your preferred design and color(s).
- Tiles are affordable
While higher priced flooring tiles tend to be of a better quality, there is no reason why you can’t floor your bathroom on a reasonable budget. Thanks to a lot of competition within the numerous tile manufacturers and retailers operating within Tampa Florida, it is now easier to score a deal when flooring your bathroom.
For best deals, you need to visit Tampa flooring stores that partner with multiple manufacturers, so that you have a wide variety of differently priced options to choose from.
- Tiles are a safe bathroom flooring option
Accidental slips and falls are one of the biggest safety concerns when it comes to bathrooms. You need a flooring material that provides adequate grip under wet conditions. Bathroom tiles are specifically manufactured to meet these grip requirements. Most of them have raised and ‘roughened’ surfaces that ensure that you can safely use your bathroom floor after a shower or a bath.
