Every house has a bathroom—and yours deserves the best. If you’re planning a bathroom remodel, you may want to install new tile for a refreshed appearance. First-time remodelers understandably have plenty to consider, but where do you start once the bathroom has been gutted?

You may be unsure if you have to use ceramic tile in your bathroom—and the short answer is no! There are many options you can consider, including the water-resistant LVT (luxury vinyl tile), LVP (vinyl plank flooring), and laminate flooring.

If you’re looking for something besides ceramic tiles, consider these options as you plan your bathroom’s remodel.

Vinyl tile is always a popular pick—and for good reason. It’s as stylish as it is affordably priced, and its resilience to water and moisture provides slip-resistant bathroom visits. Plus, adding it to your home is easy with float or glue-down installation, even for inexperienced renovators. Place the LVT on the floor, walls, ceilings, or tub surrounds with ease.

Like vinyl tile, vinyl plank flooring offers an affordable alternative flooring option that still provides plenty of high-end style. The primary difference lies with its plank shape, rather than a traditional tile square. With LVP flooring, you can continue your aesthetic from room-to-room, with your bathroom matching your hallway, dining room, bedroom, and more.

Water-resistant laminate flooring is an enticing option for those who want a wood-grain look. This floor type uses a hydrophobic coating with its high-quality wood structures and AC4 wearlayer protection to ensure resilience against moisture and slips. Plus, tap-lock installation makes it quick to install whether you’re doing it yourself or working with a contractor.

Our premium water-resistant laminate flooring from Landmark Interiors includes Sawgrass—highlighted by its rich, soft brown tones—and Tidewater with its coast-inspired colorways.

Bathroom floors need enough slip resistance to reduce the likelihood of falls with wet flooring. As you look to install your vinyl tile, vinyl plank, or laminate flooring, it’s important to plan for a safe and sound bathroom experience.

Slip-resistant bathroom tiles protect vulnerable individuals from potential accidents. From young children to elderly parents, flooring that protects every occupant and guest against moisture buildup creates a comfortable and grounded environment.

Ceramic tiles are a popular pick with those looking to remodel their bathroom. But, if you prefer something different, it’s important to always consider several factors to ensure confidence in your DIY project.

From softer surfaces to visually appealing tiles, knowing what to look for can immediately enhance your bathroom’s overall appearance.

  • Ease of Installation: Different tiles require different installation options. For instance, vinyl tiles can be DIY-friendly, but porcelain tiles typically require specialized equipment.
  • Maintenance: Smaller tiles mean more grout lines, which require more consistent cleaning. Larger tiles, however, reduce the amount of grout.

Additionally, when you install your preferred tile type, remember to caulk the edges of the tile. Not only does this give the flooring a finished look—it acts as a waterproof sealant.

As we learned, there are many more options to consider for your bathroom that may fit your needs better than ceramic tile. Do-it-yourself projects are all about versatility, and we’re happy to help you master your bathroom renovation project.
