If one room is consistently used every day, it’s your bathroom. When choosing the right floor to put in
your bathroom, not only do you have to pick something that will hold up against water, but also to
moisture and humidity. You also want to choose something that will be easy to install, especially when

traditional solid hardwood that tends to expand and shrink with change in humidity.
3. Porcelain or Ceramic Tile
Arguably the best choice for your bathroom floor, porcelain and ceramic tile is waterproof, fairly
inexpensive, and it’s just nice to look at. There are many options to choose from when it comes to size,
style, and color. Many people also opt to use a smaller tile for one main reason: smaller tiles means
more grout is used which results in a surface that is not as slippery.
