The bathroom often ends up getting renovated before many other areas of the home. It’s important to keep your bathroom up to date to prevent water damage and ensure it is easy to keep clean. A bathroom remodel comes with a lot of choices. There are all kinds of fun ideas out there: above counter sinks, mosaics, glass tiles, and skylights just to name a few! Here are some tips when it comes to flooring choices for your new bathroom from Floor Coverings International of Pembroke. 


Porcelain tile remains one of the most popular bathroom flooring options. It will last for many years, it’s easy to keep clean, and it’s available in all kinds of colors and finishes. You can choose to have large tiles installed or you can install smaller tiles. Or, you can have both and have your tile floor made up of many different sizes of tile. Tile makes it easy to get creative with your new bathroom flooring design.

Natural Stone

One trend we see more and more in bathroom remodel designs is adding natural elements to the design. This can mean adding plants, using wood countertops, river rock in the shower and natural stone flooring. You can make it as extreme or as subtle as you like. Natural slate flooring helps to create this look. Marble, travertine, and soapstone look beautiful as natural flooring options.

Luxury Vinyl Flooring

Luxury vinyl is an excellent choice for your new bathroom. It comes in a variety of styles so that the finished product can end up looking like hardwood flooring or even natural stone floors. Luxury vinyl flooring offers a durable, warm, water-resistant flooring material that is lower in cost. Many homeowners are turning to luxury vinyl flooring to complete their bathroom remodels.
