Floor Focus: The Wonderful World of Waterproof Flooring

Here are some waterproof flooring options that you can install anywhere, from kitchens to entryways to bathrooms and beyond.

Perhaps more than any other design material, flooring is relied on for its functionality as much as its style. While we all want perfect floors that never get damaged, we also need floors that withstand the day-to-day messes and spills of life.
 

Here are some waterproof flooring options that you can install anywhere, from kitchens to entryways to bathrooms and beyond.


Tile


Tile is a durable material that’s highly impervious to moisture, humidity, and general wear and tear, making it a great waterproof flooring option for homes in warmer, damper climates and spaces. With proper installation and maintenance, tile floors can easily last you for generations.


LL Flooring offers a variety of porcelain and ceramic tile in natural and wood-like looks. Cabrillo Gray Porcelain Tile, for example, has a glazed finish and light, dove-gray tones that deliver a soft, luminous look to any space, whether it’s a kitchen filled with natural light or a basement laundry room.

If you’re seeking the durability of tile with the appearance of wood flooring, however, you might give Brass Haven Oak Porcelain Tile a look, as it has wood-grain detailing to give it that hardwood look while maintaining the waterproof performance of tile.


Vinyl


Vinyl plank is highly resistant to moisture, and can even be found in completely waterproof varieties. This makes it the perfect flooring option for areas with hotter climates and higher humidity, and excellent for bathrooms, basements and mudrooms.

LL Flooring’s CoreLuxe line of vinyl flooring is completely waterproof, and comes in a wide variety of natural colors and finishes that provide the look of hardwood in your home. On-trend lighter tones like Ravello Oak, or darker, more classic varieties like Cambridge Hickory provide the warmth and timelessness of hardwood, and won’t fall prey to any unexpected water damage.

Hybrid Resilient


If you’re seeking premium flooring (think solid hardwood-level) that’s waterproof, dent- and scratch-resistant, and closely matches the tones and textures of natural hardwood, LL’s hybrid-resilient Duravana line covers all three bases with style and performance at the forefront.


Thanks to waterproof planks installed with a water-tight locking system, these floors are completely resistant to water damage, and are designed to be ultra-durable to last you for many years. They’re also designed for easy DIY installation and are PVC-free, making them an eco-friendly addition to any home.
