Waterproof flooring is the perfect solution for wet areas

There are many places throughout a home that would benefit from having waterproof flooring installed. Imagine how much less stressful your life would be to have such flooring in water-prone, high-humidity places like bathrooms or basements? Even areas like kitchens and mudrooms, areas that do experience varying degrees of wetness, would stand to gain from waterproof flooring. If you're about to start a renovation, but are unsure as to which type of floors to purchase, then check out this list of the best waterproof flooring on the market.

Waterproof flooring: ceramic and porcelain tile

Both ceramic and porcelain tile makes for an excellent waterproof flooring choice for rooms that experience water, be it a little or a lot. Correct grouting technique is essential for optimal waterproofing, so make sure to hire a professional. These tiles are extremely water-resistant, making them perfect for bathtub and shower areas. Both types of tile come in a wide assortment of designs and colors, from stone look-alike to faux-wood. So, with this flooring, you'll be able to create the exact look and style you'd like for your space.

Waterproof flooring: luxury vinyl plank

What makes luxury vinyl plank (LVP) flooring waterproof? It all comes down to the tight seal that the lock-and-fold style joints offer, as well as its overall material composition, proving an ideal construction that prevents water seepage. The great thing about LVP is, that it's available in varying plank strip sizes, so you can play around with floor layout.

Waterproof flooring: luxury vinyl tile

As with other vinyl flooring types, luxury vinyl tile (LVT) is 100% waterproof. If you're looking for something less plank-like, LV tiles make for a lovely flooring design and are available in a vast collection of colors, patterns, and tile sizes.

Waterproof flooring: luxury vinyl sheet

At this point, you've probably noticed the many different vinyl flooring materials, but you may be surprised to know that luxury vinyl also comes in a sheet format. What's unique about vinyl sheet is the fact that it has no seams. That means, there's even less chance of water infiltration and permeation, making this 100% waterproof option pretty fantastic.
