Porcelain tile is a popular choice for bathroom floors. Porcelain is a denser, less porous and harder option that offers greater stain and water resistance than ceramic tile. Plus, it’s suitable for radiant in-floor heat to keep feet toasty on cool mornings. Porcelain offers unmatched design versatility. Tiles can mimic natural stone varieties, such as granite and limestone. Newer designs draw inspiration from exotic locales and fashion runways, with surfaces that evoke leather, fabric, even animal prints.
Glazed. This tile is completely covered in a wear layer or hard finish that is typically colored. It is strong and dense and offers the widest range of colors and designs.
Engineered Hardwood. Formed by bonding together layers of hardwood, this engineered alternative dares to go where hardwood cannot. It lends the same warmth and riches as solid hardwood and comes in a wide variety of species, style, and color options. While not ideal for a busy bath where little ones splash, it’s a good option for powder rooms and guest baths. Be sure to check with the manufacturer regarding installation and warranty issues.
