Bathroom Floor Tiles Vs. Carpet

When it comes down to making that all important decision on flooring material to use when revamping your bathroom this can often be a tricky decision with the choice often coming down to sparkling bathroom floor tiles or carpet.

Bathroom Floor Tiles Vs. Carpet

Carpets and tiles are widely used and preferred by most decorators because of their versatility compared with other materials like wood. Despite the fact that both options are convenient each has its own pros and cons that all homeowners should be aware of.

To help homeowners pick the best flooring material, here are some factors that you should consider before purchasing:

Cost

When it comes to purchasing flooring, cost is a major deciding factor that can complicate or simplify a homeowner’s choice.

Carpet prices may depend on the quality, size and fabric, with prices from £7.50 per square metre and tile prices for bathroom floor tiles on average £1.19 each.

Maintenance 

When it comes to ease of maintenance, tile floors are the more popular option. Spillages and dust can easily be wiped or swept away by using detergents or cleaners. Carpets can be more difficult and expensive to maintain because they require regular cleaning as they accumulate dirt, dust and stains easily.

Comfort 

When it comes to comfort, there is no contest as nothing beats that feeling of stepping onto a warm soft carpet, however bathroom floor tiles can be made more comfortable by using rugs or adding under floor heating.

Durability

Repairing and replacing floor materials can be more expensive, which makes investing on high-quality materials a better choice. Tiles have the edge over carpets as they are known to last for more years if they are fitted properly. They are also more resilient to the elements and are better for high-traffic areas such as kitchens and bathrooms.  Mid - to higher-end carpets can only last around 10 years or less depending on the use.

Design

Home owners love to be creative when it comes to designing their bathroom floors which includes mixing and matching varying colours, textures, designs, and sizes of carpets and tiles to make their home as aesthetically pleasing as possible. Tile specialists, Tile Choice have a number of different bathroom floor tile options ranging from porcelain, ceramic and Natural stone available in different colours and designs.
