Bathroom Decorating Tips: Is Luxury vinyl flooring a good fit?

Luxury vinyl (LVF) is excellent for bathrooms since this room is known as "the wettest room in the house."  It is 100% waterproof, and it's ultra-durable, an advantage, especially if you have a large family who can make this one of the busiest rooms in the house. LVF stands up to it all.

Wood looks: trending for bathroom floors

Wood floors are a trend that's expected to last at least 15 years, and, by extension, wood look floors will also be in vogue for at least that many years.

If you've been craving gray wood floors for your farmhouse-style decor, or a beautiful oak, maple, or the blazing red Brazilian cherry floor, you can have it all and more with this vinyl. Digital photography, micro beveling, and embossing give depth, design, and textured looks, making it difficult for some to discern it from genuine wood.

If your taste runs more toward the stone and ceramic tile looks, no problem! It follows all the trends to have slate, marble, or other stone and colorful geometric, checkerboard, herringbone, or chevron tile patterns. Extra realism is available in cut versions instead of sheets; long planks are called luxury vinyl plank or LVP, while groutable squares are called luxury vinyl tile or LVT.

Ultra durability

Whether plank or tile, this multi-layered product is five times thicker than original vinyl with a top, transparent, melamine wear layer that protects the floor from scratches and scuffs. Made of waterproof materials, this is waterproof from bottom to top, meaning it can be submerged or spilled on and still be okay.

It just needs regular sweeping and periodic mopping to keep it looking great. Installation can be a floating floor where the pieces click, mat, then hover over the subfloor without nails or glue.

Since luxury vinyl flooring is so waterproof, it's also easy to use on walls; in fact, it gives your bath an atmosphere of a high-end spa with a marble look on the floor and walls.
