Redoing your bathroom may feel overwhelming with the extensive style choices you could make when it comes to flooring, countertops, cabinetry, shower, tub, and more. Here at Floor Coverings International Seminole, we want to make that a little easier by helping you at least narrow down your flooring options. Let’s take a look at the most popular options for homes in the greater Clearwater area.
Porcelain & Ceramic
Porcelain is a popular choice for bathroom flooring because it is incredibly versatile, water resistant, and affordable. Porcelain is available in a wide variety of styles, textures, and colors for you to perfectly craft the bathroom of your dreams. A close cousin to porcelain is ceramic, which is also a common choice for environments that are exposed to elevated moisture and frequent cleaning.
Ceramic tiles can be customized to replicate the look of natural stone and even hardwood. If you’re looking for a truly unique style, try exotic wood-look ceramic tile in your home. Lastly, both porcelain and ceramic are great to pair with radiant floor heaters to keep you warm underfoot all year long.
While there are different products available that can give you the look of natural stone at a fraction of the cost, nothing can compare to the authentic look and feel of stone. There are a variety of natural stones you could choose from including slate, marble, travertine, granite, and terracotta. Each one offers unique benefits, but also is likely to have its own quirk. Talk to us about the specific stone styles you’re interested in to make sure you understand the expectations. Try slate for a gloomy, industrial aesthetic, or cozy up your space and style with bright and warm terracotta.
Vinyl has been on the market for decades, but today’s vinyl floors have little in common with the original peel-and-stick varieties. Luxury vinyl tiles use high-resolution imaging to imitate any elegant flooring style you could want. Just like ceramic, luxury vinyl can replicate natural stone and hardwood. The benefit of luxury vinyl is that it is easy to clean and is 100% water resistant if installed correctly.

Engineered Wood Flooring
If you love the idea of wood in your bathrooms, but don’t want to risk warping solid hardwood and don’t like the feel of vinyl or ceramic, consider engineered wood flooring. While it’s not completely water resistant, its production process makes it more resilient in moist environments. The topmost layer of the plank will be solid wood, but the base layers are engineered products designed to withstand humidity and prevent warping. Simply protect the floors with a durable sealant, use bathmats strategically, and clean up any standing water on the surface.
