What’s the Best Flooring for a Kids’ Bathroom?

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Kitchen and Bath

If you’re remodeling a bathroom for your kids, you’ve probably put a lot of thought into both the materials and the style. After all, kids can be hard on floors, toilets, and sinks in a bathroom, and you probably want a style that can be both playful and grow with them over time. There are several different options that can make nice choices for a floor in a kids’ bathroom that should be just what you’re looking for.

Mosaic Tiles

One option to consider in a kids’ bath is mosaics. Mosaic tiles are fantastic in these areas for a couple reasons:

• All the many grout lines make the floor non-skid, which is important for young children and spaces where a lot of water may get splashed

• Mosaic tiles can be laid in nearly any shape, color, and pattern so you can create a fun flooring design that is sure to suit your kids’ personalities

Glazed Porcelain

One material to consider for your kids’ bathroom floor is glazed porcelain. It comes in mosaic and larger tiles, and it’s virtually indestructible. It doesn’t scratch or stain and you can wash it with whatever you want, so no worrying about kids who miss the toilet or drop toothpaste everywhere. You can also find it in a variety of colors, so you can make a cobalt blue or mint green penny tile floor or a fun blue and white checkerboard in large tiles to create a playful bath.

Glass

Believe it or not, glass tiles make great floors in kids’ bathrooms. Glass mosaic floors are non-skid and pretty much maintenance free. You can wash them with whatever you’d like, including glass cleaner or vinegar, they’re non porous and are not going to stain or harbor germs. Best of all, they come in a wide range of different fun colors so you can make a floor that is fun for kids now, and that is likely to hold up to their tastes as they grow older, as well, so you won’t have to replace it with something more grown up down the line.
