HOW TO CHOOSE FLOORING FOR THE BATHROOM?

One of the most important considerations when decorating your bathroom is the flooring you use.  Not only does it need to look good, but it also should be nonslip, durable, easy to clean, comfortable to walk on bare feet, and, most importantly, moisture- and humidity-resistant.


HOW TO CHOOSE THE LOOK FOR THE FLOOR? 

Wood, tiles, and seamless flooring can all look contemporary, while the former two are better choices for a period-style room.  Tiles and seamless flooring stand up better to moisture; wood is less water-resistant, but is a viable option if you love the look.
