Flooring inspiration | Add luxury vinyl style into your bathroom design

When it comes to choosing bathroom flooring in your home, it can be a difficult choice to get right. Not only does it have to look good and complement the chosen fittings and wall finish, but it also has to stand up to daily impact of water and humidity, as well as being slip resistant and low maintenance in such a busy area of the home.

Luxury Vinyl Tiles (LVT) are a stylish and practical choice for flooring in your home, with so many positive qualities; water and stain resistant, warm underfoot, easy to clean and maintain, they make an excellent choice for bathrooms.

Key brands like Amtico and Karndean have taken LVT to another level, creating a myriad of floor designs that are practical without any compromise on style. Quite the opposite in fact, they have upped the style level of modern flooring.

We’ve taken a look at just a few of the key styles available that could be the perfect finishing touch to create floors of distinction for your bathroom or ensuite.

Style 1 – Abstract

Use different shades and mix and match to create a playful and colourful floor design that is bespoke to your space. Umbra, shown in this bathroom scheme, is from the Amtico Signature range and is inspired by movement and shadow.  This non-repeating pattern captures the beauty of the sophisticated curves and layers found in bathroom spaces.

Here Umbra Dusk and Umbra Veil have been combined in a block weave laying pattern to create a neutral yet captivating floor.

Style 2 – Wood Plank

Compared to real wood bathroom flooring (which is prone to water damage), wood effect Luxury Vinyl Tiles are incredibly durable & easy to maintain. With beautifully authentic plank-style tiles, wood effect vinyl flooring is suitable for even the toughest of spaces, so perfect for bathroom finesse.

This is Karndean Van Gogh Brushed Oak. This floor adds a beautiful texture and warmth that is naturally at home in a traditionally styled family bathroom.

Style 3 – Parquet

Or choose a wood effect Parquet like Karndean Art Select Blond Oak, which combines warmth, texture and practicality with the interest and classic style of a parquet finish.

Style 4 – Stone

Luxury Vinyl floors come in an array of stone finishes that mirror a tiled floor, but offer a softer and warmer feel underfoot that can be truly appreciated in a bathroom. Here Karndean Da Vinci Drift is inspired by the classic structure and timeless appeal of limestone. The authentic grain and fossilisation of natural stone creates a combination of greys and blacks which create a softer alternative to single tone stone floors.

Style 5 – Flagstone

For a serene and relaxing space, try designing your bathroom around a palette of similar shades & tones. Lighter stone effect vinyl flooring with neutral walls creates a beautiful bathroom that’s the perfect place to unwind.

Here Amtico Riverstone Tundra and Honed Limestone Natural have been combined to create a style called The Day Dream. Laid in a flagstone formation it creates a rippled effect to add a delicate texture to the floor.


Style 6 – Mosaic

For brighter, more distinctive Aqua tones, Venetian Blue from the Karndean Italian Mosaic collection is a great style choice. Subtle enough that it provides a calming backdrop to your space, but bright enough to inject a bit of life and personality. This highly tactile mosaic effect tile oozes fresh watery tones that sit effortlessly in modern bathroom designs.
