At Floor Coverings International Intown Atlanta, we know flooring, and we love helping families in the greater Buckhead, Atlanta, Midtown area find the right flooring for their homes. The “perfect” floors for a homeowner depend on a number of factors: budget, lifestyle, personal preference, and—most importantly—the room. Every room has its own unique needs. Bathrooms are particularly demanding because they require durable flooring that is resistant to moisture. Here are three flooring options perfect for your bathroom.
Natural Stone Tile
Tile comes in a tremendous variety, from manufactured ceramic to unpolished slate. In Atlanta, natural stone tiles are prized for their beauty and authenticity. Marble, slate, and limestone are some of the most popular natural stone tiles that we carry. These natural materials are as strong as they are gorgeous, but they require more maintenance than porcelain or ceramic tiles. Natural stone tiles need to be sealed to prevent staining from the minerals found in tap water.
Hardwood is one of the most popular flooring materials because of its timeless warmth. Unfortunately, wood is not a great choice for bathrooms because of its tendency to warp when subjected to moisture. Many tile manufacturers produce faux hardwood tile—called wood-look—to provide the look and feel of hardwood in your bathroom without fear of water damage. Wood-look tile comes in a variety of colors and styles to faithfully recreate any species of hardwood. It even comes in variable-width and plank!
Luxury Vinyl Tile
Luxury vinyl tile (LVT) is experiencing a surge in popularity due to its durability and affordability. This synthetic flooring material is made from PVC plastic, making it practical and sustainable. The printed design layer can capture the look of any flooring material, from hardwood to stone. Because of its water resistance, LVT is a popular choice in Atlanta bathrooms.
