Are you having problems choosing a floor suitable for a damp room? We present you the necessary solutions to reach your goal!

It is sometimes difficult to find a floor that is resistant to water and moisture. Indeed, we like to personalise as much as possible our rooms, our living room, kitchen ... But how to do when it comes to a bathroom?

VINYL FLOOR: 2 DIFFERENT FORMATS FOR MY BATHROOM

Vinyl flooring, also known as LVT flooring, comes in 2 different shapes: planks or tiles. Depending on the design chosen and the type of installation you prefer, some formats will be more suitable than others. But each vinyl floor format offers a wide range of products: from the most to the least resistant and efficient, with a layer of wear more or less important, according to the use that is reserved to the floor. For those we are going to present, it is possible to install them in damp rooms (bathrooms and kitchen, for example).

• A vinyl plank is in a rectangular shape, finer than a tile: this format is preferred to accentuate parquet and wood imitations.

• A vinyl tile is in shape of a square or similar, much wider than a plank: the tile format is often used to highlight concrete, stone and ceramic tile effects.

The LVT tiles and planks have the advantage of being able to be replaced individually, if they have been damaged. Moreover, they often have chamfered edges (bevelled edges) on the lengths or on the 4 sides, which make them even more valuable. These floors are made to withstand moisture in a bathroom for instance.

CERAMIC TILES: THE ALTERNATIVE FOR A FASHION BATHROOM

Tile is an excellent alternative to LVT flooring. Totally resistant to water and moisture, this is the best option for renovating your bathroom or any other wet room.

Ceramic tiles are the essential floor of our interiors: kitchen, bathroom, entrance, this floor is appreciated in the damp rooms and we love it for its ease of maintenance and cleaning, its resistance and its longevity.

If you see the ceramic tiles as too traditional, which does not rejuvenate the rooms, think again! Do you dream of a very contemporary floor? The tile is a much less demanding flooring support and remains more solid against micro-cracks. Moreover, the famous manufacturer Agrob Buchtal offers you a selection of tiles easy to install: you can install your ceramic tiles yourself! BRICOFLOR recommends the Agrob Buchtal Construct "3090-B700HK light grey"

It is a tile with a very modern style: Sober, elegant, concrete is also ultra trendy! We do not get tired of its raw and industrial aspect, which confers a loft and factory rendering to our interior spaces. We also like its zen side, which gives a spa feel to our bathrooms. An industrial style and trendy material, the concrete: concrete-look ceramic tiles offer a definitely more urban and contemporary flooring than classic white tiles. It is now possible to modernise all its parts without giving way on a practical and resistant floor! One must add the fact that this tile has an antibacterial surface finish: super convenient for a bathroom!

LAMINATE FLOORING: YOU THOUGHT THAT ALL LAMINATES DO NOT SUPPORT WATER? WRONG!

We often have the misconception that laminate flooring can not be placed in a wet room because it is made of high density (HDF) fiber board. Indeed, when some of them become be wet, they will be damaged. There is, however, an alternative:

 BerryAlloc Riviera "62000170 Chalet Oak"
