Hey, we get it, spills happen. Whether you knock over a glass of water or there’s a dishwasher leak, it’s always great to have peace of mind that your flooring won’t get damaged.
That’s why it’s great to know that water resistant flooring options exist. But take note, water-resistant does not mean waterproof and spills still need to be cleaned up as soon as possible, as the resistance is time sensitive.
If you’re in the market for water-resistant flooring, we’ve created a list of the 4 best options on the market. And if you have any questions, make sure to chat with one of our Flooring Experts who’ll help guide your decision making process!
Vinyl flooring is one of the best options when it comes to water-resistant flooring. By it’s nature, vinyl is already quite resistant to liquid, and some brands double down on the quality to give it even more protection. Another bonus is that vinyl is also a great flooring option for high-traffic areas and can handle a lot of wear and tear without getting damaged. It comes in many colors and styles to match any decor and We highly recommend ToughLock as it’s one of our highest-rated brands.
Ceramic & Porcelain tile
Of course the old favorite for any wet space like a bathroom would be ceramic and porcelain tile! This surface is easy to clean, durable and best of all water resistant and sometimes waterproof! The variety is endless so it will match just about any space you can think of and both ceramic and porcelain tile come in affordable options. Check out Grand Teton's for a high quality tile with a hardwood look and great pricing, plus it's in-stock.
With Laminate flooring, you can have the look of hardwood, but without the price, and more protection against accidental spills. With plenty of design options, this is a great way to get the look and feel you want without wavering on quality. Laminate flooring is water resistant, not waterproof, but many styles like our Pioneer and Old Mill H20 brands come with a 72 hour resistance timeframe.
No matter what option you decide to go with, choosing a water resistant floor is a great choice to ensure the longevity of your home.
