When it comes to bathrooms, many people aren’t too concerned with their flooring choice; after all, the restroom is a very practical place, suited for showering, putting on makeup, and the like. If you’re reading this blog post, though, you’re no doubt of the type who is actually concerned about their upcoming bathroom renovations. We at E Hardwoods & Flooring, where you can buy hardwood flooring online, tip our hats to you. Your bathroom is just as worthy of some flooring TLC as is the rest of your home, and the unique purpose the room serves renders it deserving of flooring that can stand up to it. Read on to learn more about the best bathroom floorings and discover if any of them could be right for you.

Your Number One Concern: Water Resistance

No matter how frequently your family uses a given household bathroom, it’s safe to say that it’s a room that, relatively speaking, deals with a lot of water compared to the rest of your home. Sinks, showers, toilets—all of these fixtures deal with plumbing, and all of them, therefore, have the potential to spill. When it comes to your bathroom, then, any homeowner is going to want something that’s tough on moisture, which leads us to the following recommendations:


  • Waterproof flooring |Also oftentimes known as waterproof vinyl flooring or simply vinyl flooring, this is our top recommendation for bathrooms of any type. Because it’s completely resistant to water, spills of any type are a cinch to mop up. As a bonus, it can make any bathroom look chic by mimicking solid hardwood flooring (and sometimes even marble!) to a T.
  • Laminate flooring |When it comes to moisture resistance, generally speaking, the less wood content, the better. Laminate flooring is composed of composite material, making it relatively stable in the face of moisture when compared to wood-based floorings.
  • Engineered hardwood flooring | If you have to have the feel of real wood underfoot in your bathroom, engineered hardwood is your best bet. For heavily-used bathrooms, though, it might not be a good fit, as fluctuating humidity levels caused by hot showers can take their toll on this kind of flooring.
