When it comes to choosing flooring, aesthetic and appearance are often the priority. However, something homeowners should also prioritize is the safety and performance of their flooring choice, especially aging homeowners, or families with young children.

Bathrooms are high-risk areas for falls due to the wet, slippery environment. Without question a space in the home where non-slip flooring is the best, and the safest option. The good news is there are some great options to consider that will not only make the bathroom floor safer, but homeowners won’t have to sacrifice the look and feel they desire.
Natural stone is the very best option when it comes to non-slip flooring in the bathroom. Texturing the stone by sandblasting or installing naturally textured tiles helps achieve a non-slip surface. While natural stone is the costliest option, it is well worth the investment. Natural stone is safe, durable, and aesthetically pleasing in the bathroom area.
Non-slip Vinyl Plank

Luxury vinyl plank flooring is a great choice for non-slip flooring because it can withstand high moisture and high traffic environments, while also making the floors safer. Vinyl is affordable and can be installed over many different subfloor types. It also boasts of versatility as it can be customized to imitate many types of flooring, such as stone or wood.
Non-slip Porcelain/Ceramic Tile

Porcelain and ceramic tiles are one of the most affordable and common types of flooring you will find in bathrooms in homes. However, traditional porcelain and ceramic pose a risk as they can become slippery when wet or exposed to moisture. Enter the non-slip porcelain/ceramic tiles. The non-slip version is designed with a textured surface to help grip your feet to the floor.
All of these are quality flooring options to increase the safety and slip resistance in bathrooms and other areas in your home. Our professionals at Flowers Flooring can help you find the right non-slip flooring that fits both your budget and the look and feel you desire in your home.
