Leoline loves nothing more than a handy ‘Top 5’, and this latest list is one of the flooring manufacturer’s most useful yet.
When choosing bathroom flooring, there’s much more to consider than just looks; more than any other room, we need to consider the floor’s practical qualities, and whether it can withstand the wear that will be thrown its way. Read on and ensure you’re fully versed in the options available to you!
TIP 1: Is my floor waterproof?
Crucial in a bathroom environment, you need your floor to withstand the splishing and splashing that will likely take place. There are a number of floors on the market, namely laminates, that claim to be ‘water resistant’. None, however, can compare to Leoline floors with their 100% waterproof nature, meaning the flooring’s appearance will be retained for time to come, even when splashed on a daily basis!
TIP 2: What other practical qualities does my floor hold?
There are other practical credentials you might want to consider when picking your new bathroom floor. For instance, how slip resistant is this underfoot installation? Equally, does your floor comprise an easy-wipe surface for simple maintenance? Leoline floors tick all of these boxes, adding safety while saving you on time and effort.
TIP 3: Are we opting for a wood or stone look?
Now on to the interesting stuff: the flooring’s aesthetic. Researching a floor’s practical qualities is very necessary, but ultimately as homeowners, we care most about looks! The Leoline stable holds countless options in both timber and tiled looks, so you certainly won’t be wanting for choice. When selecting between wood and stone, consider not only the nature of the room, but also the nature of your home as a whole. Are we looking for a clean and contemporary choice from Stonemark? Or something with classic charm from Luxury Woods?
TIP 4: How much space do I have to cover?
This is an often-overlooked aspect when selecting a floor. If you’re tight on space (like many bathrooms will be), then you’d be best suited looking to smaller plank or tile dimensions, which will help to make the room appear bigger than it actually is. If you’re lucky enough to own a large, open bathroom area, then perhaps a bigger plank will work; just make sure to consider this in your decision-making process, and order your free samples first!
TIP 5: Does my bathroom lack colour or inspiration?
With bathrooms generally being smaller spaces, it’s important we don’t try and overload on colour or pattern. This said, it does depend on the fixtures and fittings that are already in place. If your room feels a little bit bland, then opt for something with punchy colour or zany pattern; if a series of shades are already present, however, consider a cleaner effect underfoot, with whites, creams and greys just some of the neutrals available in the Leoline portfolio.
