Vinyl flooring comes in a huge variety of colors and patterns. It's durable, soft, quiet, water resistant and inexpensive. It also requires little maintenance and is easy to repair. Vinyl flooring will fade, show wear, get nicks and rips and the edges can curl.
But they are not without their disadvantages. Wood, whether in laminate form or actual boards can be hard to keep clean, grease and grime easily build up in the hollows of the grain and effective cleaning can be a hands-and-knees-and-scrubbing-brush affair. Added to this is the fact that sooner or later whatever treatment has been applied to protect the wood will wear away and leave the surface vulnerable to the kind of staining that can only be removed if one is prepared to sand down the whole floor.
Tiles and vinyl flooring are also quite popular and in the end it comes down to the purpose of each room. Any type of wood is not too suitable for bathrooms, where tiles are most recommended. Water will ruin the wood eventually and you don't want that, especially because any type of wood flooring is quite expensive.
Natural stone is the most expensive, but also the most durable and stain resistant option.
If your budget allowed, it is an option worth exploring. In general, carpet is not
recommended for bathroom floors for obvious reasons. It is better to spend your money
on a laminate or vinyl flooring option instead. If you are determined to have carpet
in your bathroom, purchase a large fluffy bathroom rug instead that can be cleaned
in the washing machine.
