28 Sep Finding the best flooring type for your bathroom
You may not think it at first, but your bathroom is likely to be one of the most frequently used rooms within your commercial property. As a basic necessity within everyone’s routines, it’s no surprise that the requirement for hygiene and safety is high within bathrooms. To create a safe space that remains reliable, no matter the foot traffic it receives, you must consider the flooring you’ll lay.
What features will your bathroom floor need?
- Your flooring will need to be waterproof and able to resist damage due to high moisture or water levels.
- Your flooring will need to be hardwearing, remaining durable no matter how often it is used.
- Your flooring will need to be easy to clean, allowing hygiene levels to be kept at a high.
- Your flooring will need to be non-porous, preventing moisture or liquid from being absorbed and leading to damp or mould growth.
- Your flooring will need to be slip-resistant, minimising the risk of accidents occurring.
How can you determine the right bathroom flooring for your property?
There are a wide range of commercial environments that require suitable bathroom flooring. Hotel and restaurant bathrooms receive high foot traffic from customers and need to remain durable as a result. This also ensures that these businesses don’t need to replace their flooring regularly, incurring unnecessary costs. Other commercial premises have more specific needs. In care homes and GP surgeries, it is essential that bathroom flooring is slip-resistant and hygienic, preserving the safety of visitors. Bearing your specific requirements in mind when considering your flooring options will ensure that all your needs are met.
What are the best suited options for bathroom flooring?
Vinyl is often seen as the most cost-effective flooring type for bathrooms, but this doesn’t mean it is any less effective. Luxury vinyl tiles (LVT) can be designed to look like stone or ceramic tiles or even wood planking, just without the need for regular care. Their versatility allows them to complement a wide range of commercial environments. The moisture-resistant qualities that LVT holds also prevent warping, lifting, or rippling from occurring, ensuring a durable result.
Safety flooring is the ideal solution for businesses that wish to prioritise the safety of their customers. The qualities within these flooring types provide the utmost safety for all. Being non-porous, any spillages on the floor can be removed with a simple wipe over with a cloth, and the durable qualities of the material will prevent any lifting or warping from occurring. Best of all, the surface is both slip-resistant and even, removing tripping hazards and preventing accidents.
