Small Bathroom Flooring
A small bathroom present design challenges. Not only must the space be functional, many homeowners desire to also make the room appear larger than it actually is. While the proper layout and right bathroom fixtures can help, the flooring can also help enhance the appearance of the small bathroom. Small bathroom floors require that you consider the materials being installed and their sizes. If you are installing tile, then small tiles, less than 6-by-6 inches should be used and 1-inch tiles would be optimal. This tile size would make the bathroom appear larger and is easier to install than larger tiles on a small floor. When installing laminate or solid wood, remember to run the length of the flooring in the same direction as the opposite wall of the door. For example, when you enter the bathroom, the flooring should run longways from the door toward the opposite wall rather than across the floor. This will make the floor appear smaller.
