Bathroom Flooring Ideas
A popular way to use in-floor heating is as more of an accent than an all-over installation. For example, heating an area around the toilet (which is often immediately next to the tub-shower) will go a long way to keeping your feet warm, and this often can be achieved with a single presized heating mat, acquired at a lower price than a full-room custom mat.
This main floor bathroom had to function not only as a Powder Room for guests but also be easily accessible to the backyard pool for the family to change and wash up. Combining the weathered wood vanity and shower wall tiles with the crisp shell-inspired mirror and sand-like floor tile we’ve achieved a space reminiscent of the beach just down the road.
Curbless showers are awesome, but for the water to flow into the drain, the floor has to be high enough to pitch the tile into the drain. When you add thickness to the floor, you have to think about the transitions into the room. If someone needs to wheel into the room, accommodations must be made.
Linoleum is available in sheets, tiles or planks. If you're not creating a pattern with tiles as in this charming bathroom, I recommend using sheets, as you'll have fewer joints and fewer places for the floor to show its age. Make sure that any adhesives are free of solvents and labeled "no-VOC."
