Get the Look of Wood in Your Bathroom by Installing Kraus Luxury Vinyl Plank Flooring

When renovating the bathroom, your flooring may be what prompted the renovation in the first place. You may be looking for something more modern, or even something more durable, thankfully, we have a solution for both. Luxury vinyl planks and tile have quickly become the best choice. If you’re looking for the look of wood in your bathroom, then you should consider installing Kraus luxury vinyl plank flooring. The following are the main reasons why Kraus luxury vinyl plank flooring is better than other flooring choices when it comes to bathroom installations:

More Water-Resistant Than Laminate

Laminate doesn’t perform as well in water-prone areas such as the bathroom. It’s highly susceptible to damage caused by leaks and water splashing. Conversely, Kraus luxury vinyl plank flooring is waterproof, which means that it can endure pretty much any amount of water you throw at it.

Doesn’t Absorb Moisture Like Hardwood

Humidity is a common factor of bathrooms, even those with venting fans. Too much moisture from hot showers and your hardwood flooring will swell and eventually get damaged. Luxury vinyl planks may look like hardwood, but they won’t absorb moisture like hardwood would. If luxury vinyl planks can endure water leaks from toilets, tubs and sinks, they can sure withstand moisture. Kraus luxury vinyl plank flooring will not absorb any moisture, so you won’t need to worry about it swelling or warping.

Warmer Than Stone

Stone may be a good option for the bathroom as it doesn’t get damaged by water or moisture. However, it doesn’t absorb ambient heat from the room. Therefore, it gets quite chilly to walk on, particularly during winter. Kraus luxury vinyl plank flooring, on the other hand, stays much closer to room temperature, making it more pleasant to walk on.

There are so many different types of flooring to choose from, it can be difficult to decide. Do you want to go with traditional tile, or a modern take on laminate? With luxury vinyl planks and tiles, you can choose just about any style for your bathroom renovation! Get all the benefits of Kraus luxury vinyl plank flooring, without the restrictions of tile, laminate, or hardwood.
