Tiles are the floor covering of choice for bathrooms up and down the country. But what makes tiles the perfect choice for bathrooms when lino and carpet are both available? Here at Tiles 2 Go, clearly our passion is tiles, so this is our guide to the benefits of bathroom floor tiles.

Cleanliness

Maintaining the cleanliness of your bathroom is important. In places that are warm and damp, mould and bacteria can thrive. For homeowners using floor tiles however this is not usually a problem. Floor tiles are easy to clean and any spillages are easily wiped away. This is not the case with carpets, rugs or shower-mats that can absorb the moisture and provide a breeding ground for bacteria and fungus. People with floor tiles often dry their tiles after baths and showers because of the risk of slips, trips, and falls emerging from the use of floor tiles.

Visual appeal

Floor tiles in Bathrooms can really stand out. No other flooring type can boast such an array of colours, textures, shapes, and patterns as tiles, and so if it comes down to a simple matter of style, floor tiling is clearly the way to go.

Waterproof

Some of the more expensive types of lino can be labelled as waterproof, but many of them aren’t. Carpets in the bathroom certainly aren’t waterproof and neither is laminate. For most other floor coverings water poses a problem by getting underneath the flooring and causing it to bubble, lift or weaken. Tiles are the only bathroom flooring type that can be classified as completely waterproof.

Hardwearing

While carpets and linos can be faded by strong sunlight over the years, or be worn down by regular foot traffic in the same area, tiles are much more Hardwearing and are likely to remain visually appealing for years to come.

In summary

Floor tiling in the bathroom is the best option as it is hard wearing waterproof easy to clean and more visually appealing. Why not check out the range of floor tiles at Tiles 2 Go today?
