And when picking out the perfect floor for your bathroom, while appearance is important, there's not point in having attractive flooring if it's not going to withstand the demands of daily life, so practicality should be a key consideration.
"Bathroom flooring must be practical first and foremost, able to withstand water and provide slip-resistance," says Philiep Caryn, communications and sponsorship manager at Quick-Step.
Like every other floor in your home, the material you choose for your floor will depend on your lifestyle and personal taste. However, the important thing about the bathroom is that it has to contend with moisture so carpet is a definite no and wood probably isn't the best idea either.
If you do decide to go for hardwood flooring, make sure that it is perfectly installed and thoroughly sealed as moisture can damage the wood and will ruin your flooring if it manages to seep in.
In terms of practicality, many homeowners find that laminate flooring is the best choice for your bathroom floor, as it is not only durable and hardy, but it is also very easy to keep in good condition.
"Cleaning and maintaining your floor is obviously important, as it can help to prolong its life and improve its appearance over time," Philiep adds.
"One of the major benefits of laminate flooring is its ease of maintenance. The surface means that any loose dirt can be swept or wiped away without staining the floor."
However, whatever material you choose, make sure you look after your bathroom floor, as with the right care you can avoid having to replace or relay the flooring and will save yourself a lot of money in the long run.
