Floor options for your bathroom

Published: November 8, 2012

Bathrooms can be one of the trickiest rooms in the house when it comes to selecting the floor. Many homeowners rely on the tried and true ceramic tile for their bathroom – and that is an excellent choice because of its natural water resistant tendencies. Ceramic tile also comes in a wonderful variety of shades and colors.

However, the design experts at Kermans Flooring in Indianapolis encourage you to think outside the box a bit. When you’re ready to put a new floor in your bathroom, consider one of these equally excellent choices.

Glass Tile

Like ceramic, glass tile is resistant to moisture and temperature changes – making it a natural for any bathroom. It’s also easy to clean with a mop or even the same glass cleaner you use on your windows. Glass tiles are becoming very popular and manufacturers are meeting the demand with a huge variety of colors and styles. Learn more about glass tile and other tile options in our online Tile Buyer’s Guide.


Bamboo floors are a type of hardwood that is popping up underfoot in more and more Central Indiana homes. It’s harder than most woods and more durable. It’s naturally resistant to mold and mildew and repels moisture – all excellent qualities in a bathroom floor. Plus, bamboo is a naturally renewable resource – making it an environmentally friendly choice as well. Learn more about bamboo in our online Hardwood Buyer’s Guide.


Cork is another fairly new flooring option in the Indianapolis area. What makes it a good choice for your bathroom? It feels soft and warm on bare feet. It is naturally resistant to mold, mildew and bacteria. And it also naturally repels moisture. As a renewable resource, cork is a friendly choice for your bathroom and the earth. Learn more about cork in our online Hardwood Buyer’s Guide.
