Whether it’s in a brand new home or a remodel, one of the most important rooms for homeowners in Central Westchester is the master bathroom. When it comes to flooring, we know that durability, style, and water resistance are key factors. To help you choose the best floor for your bathroom, the experts at Floor Coverings International Central Westchester have listed their favorites here!
We love porcelain tiles for bathrooms because they come in such a wide range of textures, shapes, colors, and patterns. This factor alone makes them a great choice for a customized master bathroom. Appearance aside, porcelain tiles have the durability and water resistance you need for bathroom flooring. Beyond flooring, porcelain tiles are an equally if not better choice for shower walls, bathroom walls, and countertops. When it comes to cleaning, be sure to pay attention to the grout lines! The grout lines for porcelain tiles can discolor easily if left unkempt.
If you’re looking for a more natural look for your master bathroom, look no further than travertine tile. Travertine is a sedimentary limestone rock composed from mineral deposits in natural hot springs. It has a great neutral palate, with colors ranging from tan, ivory, and even coral pink. Travertine adds stylish elegance as a bathroom floor, but has uses beyond that! It’s a smart choice for shower walls and countertops—much like other tile choices. Be careful not to use acidic cleaners on your travertine tiles however, as it can easily corrode or etch when exposed to this.
We typically don’t recommend having hardwood floors in your bathroom because the moisture and wear in this space is not good for it. However, if you’re looking for the appearance of hardwood, then wood-look tiles are the answer for you! They’re made from high-quality ceramic with a realistic hardwood image printed on the tile. These tiles have all the advantages of ceramic and porcelain tile with the appeal of hardwood.
