Due to many contributing factors, including the presence of water and soap, and the smoothness and hardness of sleek surfaces, bathrooms pose a serious slip-and-fall risk. Whether you're renovating your old bathroom or building a new one, choosing non-slip floors make sense. But what type of flooring is ideal for your bathroom?

The best flooring for bathrooms

Ceramic or porcelain tiles
One of the best overall options for bathroom flooring is the use of tiles. Both ceramic and porcelain tiles are good options. However, these tiles are one of the more slippery options available. If you want the look and feel of these tiles, but want to reduce the risk of slips and falls, there is a solution.

Stone Grip is a non-slip floor tiles solution for ceramic and porcelain tiles. It is designed to add a high level of traction to tiles even when wet. It produces a clear finish that will not change the appearance of floors.

Vinyl flooring
One of the best options for slip resistance in the bathroom is vinyl flooring. Vinyl is also easy to maintain. Additionally, it does not stain and is very durable.

It is important, though, to keep in mind that no floor is perfectly slip resistant. So, to enhance the traction of vinyl floors, the use of Dura Grip is recommended. Dura Grip is an anti-slip epoxy paint specially designed to create an extremely durable non-slip coating on a variety of floors, including vinyl. It is available in a variety of colours and is very easy to maintain. Dura Grip can also be used to make bathroom floor tiles non-slippery.

Shiny marble or granite
Many homeowners choose marble or granite for their bathroom floors because of the luxurious look these materials provide. However, these are some of the most slippery surfaces, especially in areas where water and soap are present.

To achieve marble or granite non-slip tiles for bathroom floor surfaces, Polish Grip can be used. Polish Grip is a coating specifically designed for use on polished or glossy and shiny granite, marble, ceramic, and porcelain tiles. Besides being an anti-slip for wet rooms and bathrooms solution, the product can also be used as a penetrating sealer to protect floors from stains.

A non-slip solution for smaller areas
To increase the slip-resistance of a small bathroom, GripX is recommended. GripX is an easy-to-apply roll on coating that produces a semi-gloss textured finish. It can be used to make concrete, as well as ceramic and porcelain tiles anti-slip. GripX can also be used to seal surfaces to prevent water damage, scuff marks and scratches.

What about outdoor areas where water is present?

Just like bathrooms, outdoor spaces where water is present, such as patios and swimming pools can be very slippery. To make concrete, stone and tiles for outdoor non-slip, Deck Grip is the perfect solution. It is a water-based acrylic sealer that is easy to apply and results in a clear, semi-gloss and barefoot-friendly finish.
