Ted Cook covers 4 common bathroom flooring options to choose from. All of these options have their pros and cons. However, all of these options are water-resistant and can be finished in a DIY fashion.
Ted talks about roll/sheet vinyl, ceramic tile, engineered hardwood, and luxury vinyl plank.
The best flooring for your home is entirely up to you of course. We highly recommend using luxury vinyl plank in general because it offers an easy DIY install and is completely waterproof. It is also very cheap because typically, bathrooms are small in general. Also, luxury vinyl is typically cheaper than hardwood or ceramic tile if you include the necessary materials to install ceramic tile.
Ted recommends using an engineered hardwood floor if the connecting floor to the bathroom is a hardwood floor. Hardwood is a DIY friendly install as well.
Remodeling your small bathroom floor can get pretty pricey if you aren’t the one installing it. Installers or general contractors don’t get out of bed to break even!
