Bathroom Flooring Options
Bathroom flooring needs to be functional—the wet environment encourages germs and bacteria, so it’s important to choose flooring that can be thoroughly cleaned and hold up to moisture.
But that doesn’t mean your bathroom floor shouldn’t be stylish! Between 2020 bathroom flooring materials, colors, and patterns, there is a whole world of options for updating your bathroom flooring to fit both your style and the best trends of the season.
Bathroom Flooring Colors and Patterns
Browse our showroom to discover our ceramic bathroom tiles and luxury vinyl tile in a broad range of colors, shapes, and patterns. Prefer a calm, neutral look? We’ve got white, cream, and off-white tiles that help achieve this year’s subdued, serene minimalist trend. Looking to bring rich color into your bathroom? Our beautifully colored solid and pattern ceramic tile help achieve a worldly, global bathroom style.
Bathroom Flooring Materials
The most common bathroom flooring materials for 2020 are ceramic, porcelain, and vinyl. Each material has its own perks and drawbacks, so the best choice depends on your lifestyle and budget.
Ceramic bathroom flooring is a classic choice, loved for its durability, versatility, and attractiveness. Ceramic tiles are water resistant, which means while they may absorb some water over time, water will not damage them. Ceramic tiles are available in a beautiful variety of colors and shapes, so you can use this timeless material with any design style you choose.
Porcelain is similar to ceramic, but is fully waterproof, rather than water resistant. Because of this, porcelain is preferred for outdoor projects. For regular indoor use, many remodelers choose porcelain over ceramic due to its durability—porcelain is extremely hard, and unlikely to crack from everyday drops or wear. Porcelain is typically more costly than ceramic.
Vinyl tiles are inexpensive, durable against wet environments, easy to clean, simple to install, and available in a broad range of colors and patterns. It’s no wonder vinyl is the material of choice for DIY remodelers on a budget. The low cost makes vinyl a great choice for bold, trendy styles—some are even removable, so it’s easy to change up your look and rental-friendly.
Bathroom Vanity Designs
Get inspired during your morning and nightly routine with bathroom vanity countertops and cabinets from National Design Mart. We carry a stunning selection of high-quality countertops made from quartz, granite, and more.
Bathroom Vanity Countertops
When it comes to bathroom vanity countertops, it’s important to choose a long-lasting, durable material you’ll love for years to come. Granite is the most popular choice for bathroom countertops. Granite lasts for decades and requires minimal upkeep. Each piece is completely unique in color and pattern, so your bathroom will be one of a kind.
Quartz is another great natural option, and is similar in price to granite. It is naturally moisture resistant, so the only upkeep needed for quartz countertops is an occasional wipedown for fingerprints and dirt.
If you love the look of granite and quartz, but are working with a smaller budget, look to solid surface materials made of crushed stone and acrylic resin. Part natural and part man-made, these surface materials are also water resistant, though slightly less durable than granite and quartz.
All of these materials are available in a gorgeous array of colors and styles, including double sink vanities, small vanities, and floating vanities. You are sure to find the perfect countertop for your bathroom remodel at National Design Mart.
Bathroom Vanity Cabinets
Whether you’re remodelling your bathroom or building a new home, choosing bathroom vanity designs you love is a simple yet effective way to feel more excited about your bathroom.
A new bathroom cabinet can completely transform the way your bathroom looks and can help you incorporate your favorite bathroom style trend. Light colors lift the space and feel airy and light, while darker colors feel moody and cozy. Whichever look you’re going for, National Design Mart has a great selection of practical, beautiful cabinet storage solutions.
Design Tips for Small Bathrooms
Small bathroom design tips are helpful for making the most of limited square footage to create a comfortable bathroom you’ll love to spend time in. Read on for our small bathroom design ideas for 2020 to design a stunning and practical bathroom.
1. Prioritize Storage
Take advantage of your vertical space and keep your counter space clear with bathroom cabinets. Pedestal sinks, for example, are not the best choice for small bathrooms, since they sacrifice the opportunity for extra storage below the sink. Mirror cabinets, on the other hand, bring extra storage into the space compared to a mirror alone.
2. Diagonal Floor Tile
Traditional gridlines make spaces appear smaller, which is definitely not what you need if your bathroom is already small. While it may seem odd, laying floor tiles on a diagonal angle will extend the appearance of the room.
3. Light up High
Choose two-tone shower tiles, with the lighter tone on the top half of your wall near the ceiling. Having the light color up high will draw the eye upward, creating the illusion of higher ceilings. Bonus points if you mirror this with your bathroom paint!
4. Large Floor Tiles
Spaces appear larger when they have large floor tiles with fewer grout lines. Each tile appears bigger, which makes the entire floor—and the entire room—feel more spacious.
