Why waterproof flooring is a smart choice for your bathroom
Published: November 16, 2017
You know those cool floors—the ones that look amazing and add layers of character to a room. The ones made from natural stone and exotic hardwoods. You know, the ones that don’t belong in bathrooms or basements because the water might ruin them.
Have you ever imagined what it would be like to have a hardwood floor bathroom? How about stone tile? Now you can. Resilient flooring replicates the look of both hardwood and stone tile, without the worries of water damage.
What is resilient flooring?
Resilient flooring is a fairly new flooring group. It gives you a hard surface floor that’s extremely durable and stylish at an affordable price. Resilient flooring comes in two categories: luxury vinyl and waterproof composite flooring (WPC).
Both come in a variety of design options, including planks and tiles. Not only do they look like natural materials, they feel authentic as well. They feature an embossed surface that replicates the texture of natural materials. It is a durable surface that does not wear down over time because of its clear protective layer.
How is it waterproof?
Waterproof composite flooring lets you pick the look you’ve always wanted in a bathroom because WPC is designed with interlocking technology that prevents any liquid from penetrating the floor and subfloor, even in the event of an natural disaster like a flood. Choosing this 100% water resistant flooring option means you don’t have to worry about moisture-related problems—ever.
Does it have any other advantages?
Resilient flooring options like WPC and luxury vinyl are two of the most budget friendly options in high-quality flooring, and they have a lot of other pluses too, including:
- Designs made to look like wood, stone, or ceramic
- Resistance to scratches and stains
- Plank or tile installation options to get the look you want to achieve
- Soft underfoot
- Safe when wet
- Very durable and easy to clean
- Highly customizable
Think big by thinking small
When you start planning to remodel your bathroom, consider an accent project using glass tile. Glass tile’s natural water resistance makes it a perfect for creating a backsplash. Glass tile can make a big difference in a bathroom. It can capture light and make the space come alive and feel larger, more open.
