Flooring Ideas for Bathrooms

You can be as creative or traditional as you want when choosing your bathroom flooring. From ceramic tiles to cement flooring and pebbles, the possibilities are endless.

Concrete Flooring

An alternative to traditional bathroom flooring is concrete. These oversized concrete tiles create a consistent feel throughout the room, while still offering the practicality that is expected from their ceramic counterparts.

Pebble Stone Tile

When traditional tilework simply will not do, opting for pebble stone tile may make all the difference. In this simple and serene bathroom, the pebble floor is not the focal point but is rather the thread that sews the entire room together.

Neutral Comfort

Having a soft, neutral tile in your bathroom is an excellent way to visually expand the space. Plus, this standard tile design can help subdue a more visually stimulating room.

Marble Effect

In many rooms, the tilework may simply provide a necessary background, but in this bathroom the ceramic tiles add quite a bit to the mood. The stunning light gray tiles in this room reflect both the natural light pouring in from the window and the soft light of the chandelier.

Consistent Tiling

If you prefer to have a consistent look in your bathroom, start with the tile. The 12x12 ceramic tile flooring in the bathroom coordinates nicely with the tilework within the shower without appearing too identical.

Au Naturale

In this nature-inspired bathroom, the shower floor is covered in soft pebbles to give the allure of showering alfresco. Exotic marble flooring in the vanity area brings a luxurious touch to the space. Design by Sarah Richardson

Functional and Stylish

Some flooring proves to be both stylish and functional. These large multi-toned, dark gray tiles have a little texture on top that can easily hide dirt and prevent slipping.

Get Intricate

Feel free to express your design creativity in the bathroom through the tilework. In this spacious master bathroom, the homeowners use a vine border to create interest and bring the room to life.

River Rock Floor

A river rock floor is a less expensive way to add a luxurious look to a bathroom. Designer Mark Zancanaro paired the floor with slate and tumbled marble shower walls for a cohesive look.

Bamboo Tile Bathmat

For a textured look, incorporate a built-in bathmat made from Sobu bamboo tiles. Designer Gladys Schanstra kept the entire space neutral, giving the space a calm, serene feel.
