Bathroom floors degrade faster than any other below foot surface covering in the home. That is because they have to contend with all of the worst hazards of water, humidity, heat, stains, and corrosive soaps and substances. One simple, cost-effective option that can be easily replaced periodically is to make use of self-adhesive tiles.
Brick flooring is very similar to stone and concrete in that it is a hard surface material, that is also permeable and needs to be sealed. However, once sealed it becomes a low-maintenance kitchen flooring option, that only has to be swept free of debris every few days. The surface sealant will have to be reapplied periodically, but as long as that is done on a regular basis, a well-installed brick floor can potentially last a lifetime.
With vinyl and rubber, the maintenance of the floor will generally be fairly simple. These materials are resistant to most stains and water damage so you don’t have to worry about long term damage. You will want to wipe up soap spills so that they do not cause a slipping hazard, and you never want to immerse these surfaces in liquid as it can seep down between the seams, damaging the subfloor and or wearing at the glue holding them in place.
Brick pavers and stone tiles have a lot of characteristics in common. Brick is a manufactured product, but the ingredients used are mostly natural, consisting of clay and various sediments. Stone, on the other hand, is made completely by the earth, drawn directly from the sides of mountains. However, it does have to be refined down into tiles and slabs for ready architectural use. While these materials do have a lot in common, there are some subtle characteristics that set them apart when used in various environments.
