Bathrooms pose a unique challenge to most flooring materials due to increased traffic and exposure to moisture and humidity. Tile floors are a local favorite that Marietta homeowners turn to when looking for a durable and water resistant material for their bathrooms.
At Floor Coverings International West Metro Atlanta, we partner with many top tile manufactures to provide our customers with the best quality products at the best price. Read on as we explore a variety of tile options for your bathroom below!
Ceramic and Porcelain Tiles
Ceramic and Porcelain tiles are two of the most popular choices for bathrooms for their versatility, durability, and range of design possibilities available. Both types of tile are clay-based, which are baked in a kiln at a high temperature after receiving a colored, and sometimes textured, surface. These tiles come in multiple shapes and sizes and can be arranged in a multitude of patterns to enhance the look of your space.
Porcelain is a special subset of ceramic tile that provides your bathroom with unparalleled water resistance and durability. Did you ever wonder why most sinks and toilets are made of porcelain? That’s because its surface is one of the most effective against water absorption. It’s also a great candidate for large format tiles thanks to its strength, allowing you to elevate the look of your bathroom with a modern design.
Natural Stone Tiles
Granite – A popular choice in kitchens and bathrooms, granite tile is a highly durable natural stone that works well as a floor covering, countertop, and backsplash. It comes in a wide array of colors and tile sizes, the tiles can be finished in a matte or polished finish depending on the look you want to achieve. When it comes to bathroom flooring, be sure to choose a matte finish or place floor mats in areas prone to water, as granite can become quite slippery when wet.
Marble – Marble is another popular natural stone for Marietta homeowners who want to add a touch of elegance to their bathroom. Like granite, marble tile tends to be less expensive than marble slabs traditionally used for countertops in kitchens and bathrooms. It’s also a low-maintenance choice and only requires regular sweeping and mopping to keep it looking its best.
