When picking out flooring for a bathroom, there are particular considerations that come to the fore. The environment can be fairly hostile and the usual choice between carpets, wood flooring and LVT products like Karndean narrows down a bit. As flooring and carpet suppliers for the Shoeburyness area, we’re here to help you find something that will suit the environment and ensure your bathroom looks and feels incredible. And unlike some carpet shops, we offer an in-house installation service to ensure perfect fit and a very long lifespan.
Bathroom Flooring Options
Typically, you’ll want to avoid both carpets and traditional wood flooring when selecting a suitable product for your bathroom. Wood flooring is too porous, and carpets can stay wet for too long, eventually becoming a hygiene issue due to damp and mould. That being said, there are quick dry and easy clean carpets which feature short, rugged piles that can stand up to bathroom environments. We would say they’re a fairly rare choice, and not many Shoeburyness customers visiting carpet shops and carpet suppliers will opt for them; however they’re there, and should certainly be considered if you want something fairly unique and “old school”, or you simply can’t stand cold feet on winter’s mornings!
Synthetic alternatives such as laminate and LVT, on the other hand, excel in moisture rich environments. Karndean is one of the most popular brands in this market, and at Daniel James Flooring we’re somewhat of a Karndean specialist. Stocking the full range of Karndean products, we can help you find something that will suit other design elements in your bathroom such as fixtures and walls. LVT and laminate can both emulate natural materials like wood flooring and stone, without the price tag and upkeep. This may appeal to customers in Shoeburyness who are loathe to compromise, wanting the richness and “au natural” spirit of the aforementioned materials.
