Published: May 16, 2017

Flooring trends are a fun way to get inspiration for your home. Renovating an existing bathroom? Looking for a good floor for new construction? You might think bathroom flooring is boring and practical but it doesn’t have to be! There are some excellent hard surface flooring choices on the market today that are certainly practical but let you add some design pizzazz to your bathroom.

Tile makes beautiful floors and walls in this bathroom

Hard surface floors and your bathroom  

Hard surface flooring like tile and luxury vinyl stands up to the moisture and water that is always present in a bathroom. These floor options are moisture resistant – some are even waterproof – so there’s less to worry about from water damage or spills. There isn’t a floor that’s easier to clean than tile or luxury vinyl either, sweep and mop regularly and you’ve got a clean floor – that’s perfect for any bathroom!

Bathroom flooring trends

Now that we’ve narrowed down our search to hard surface flooring, particularly tile, luxury vinyl or waterproof composite flooring, let’s take a look at some trends that leverage all the practical benefits of these floors while letting design shine through.

Bright colors

Move away neutral cream, make room for bold espresso, cool grey, and bright white. If you want to do something different than a basic neutral tile, there’s never been a better time. Tiles of all types are being manufactured in more colors than ever before.

Patterned tile

Bathrooms can make use of this trend in the walls on a backsplash or mosaic accent but also in floors. You’ll find two types of patterns in bathroom tile. The first comes in how you choose to layout the tile – perhaps in herringbone, chevron, or other geometric patterns. The second comes in actual patterned tiles – tiles that have a design on them can lend a unique look to your bathroom floor, border or walls.

Tile that doesn’t look like tile

Porcelain tile, luxury vinyl or waterproof composite can be found in looks that very closely mimic brick, stone and even hardwood. If you want the look of something different in your bathroom, these options could be the perfect trend. Imagine, the look of lustrous hardwood flooring without any concerns about water damage!
