The Best Vinyl Bathroom Flooring on the Market
1. FloorPops Medina Peel and Stick Floor Tiles (Our Top Pick)
The Medina pattern from FloorPops will bring a touch of Mediterranean luxury to any bathroom. The attractive 12-inch square tiles have a soothing gray and white colorway that oozes understated elegance.
They’re also very easy to install. Each tile is backed with an adhesive layer. Simple peel away the protective backing paper and press it into place. Just make sure your sub-floor is clean, dry and smooth before you get started.
The glue will bond effectively to most surfaces, but the grip will depend on the material of your sub-floor. If in doubt, have some extra adhesive on hand to make sure the tiles stay put.
One thing to note is that the pattern may not align perfectly between different tiles. It’s a good idea to unpack them all and lay them out first to get the best possible fit. The difference is slight enough to go unnoticed by most people. But if you’re a perfectionist, this may not be the right product for you.
Each pack contains 10 tiles, and will cover a surface area of 10 square feet. The surface is textured, helping to avoid slips on wet floors. But it does mean it’s slightly less convincing as a substitute for ceramic tiles.
2. Lucida USA Luxury Stone-Look Floor Tiles, Calacatta
If you want a stone-look floor without the price tag, Lucida USA’s Calacatta tiles may be for you. These are styled to have the appearance of white marble, giving a fresh, clean look. There are also slate-look versions if you prefer something darker.
These planks are designed to click and lock into each other on all four sides. As a result, you can lay your floor without having to use adhesive. (You may want to add some around the edges to keep everything in place.)
They’re nice and strong too, with a 22-mil wear layer that will resist scuffs and scratches. And they’re water-resistant, so you won’t need to worry about damage from moisture or humidity. They come with an impressive 25-year warranty for domestic use, and 10 years if installed in a commercial setting.
The bottom layer is an integrated IXPE underlayment. That will help insulate your floor as well as reducing noise transmission.
This is quality flooring, but it’s not the cheapest. If you’re looking for a budget-conscious pick, there will be better options out there.
3. Livelynine Concrete Peel and Stick Floor Tiles
If you love the contemporary look of concrete floors, check out these tiles from Livelynine. They combine a convincing appearance with the soft underfoot feel of vinyl. And they have an attractive low-luster sheen.
Each tile is 12 inches square, and you can buy them in boxes of four, sixteen or 32. They’re installed using the peel-and-stick method, so they’re very easy to use. Just make sure you prepare your sub-floor carefully. They’re only 0.05 inches thick, so any imperfections underneath will show through the surface.
The thinner construction does, however, mean that they’re easy to cut to shape. A utility knife or even a sharp pair of scissors will do the job well.
We have, though, heard of some cases where customers have found the tiles didn’t stick as well as expected. This isn’t a universal experience, so most likely relates to the sub-floor material.
If you encounter difficulties, you can apply extra glue. Alternatively, return them to Livelynine. They guarantee to refund your money if you’re not satisfied.
These tiles are waterproof, so perfect for use in bathrooms. And they have a strong wear layer to protect from scratches and dents. Cleaning is easy too. Just vacuum regularly and mop with warm, soapy water.
4. Lucida USA Basecore Wood-Look Planks
They’re part of Lucida’s Basecore range, the least expensive offered by the manufacturer. But they’re still great quality.
The 2-millimeter thick planks have a 12-mil wear layer and a convincing wood grain texture. They’re waterproof and scratch resistant, and come with a 10-year warranty for domestic use. There’s also a 5-year warranty for commercial settings.
Each plank is 6 inches wide and 3 feet long. A pack contains 36 planks and will cover a surface area of up to 54 square feet.
Make sure you measure carefully and order a sample before you place an order. You’ll need to cover the shipping costs of any returns yourself, and that can be expensive.
5. CO-Z Vinyl Floor Planks
They’re available in a range of different colorways, but note that there are slight variations in cost between them. Beige, gray and light oak are slightly more expensive than ash, oak, cherry and walnut brown.
Whichever shade you choose, these planks will give you the look of a wooden floor in your bathroom. And unlike with the real thing, you won’t have to worry about damage from moisture and humidity.
They’re backed with odorless glue, making installation easy. All you have to do is remove the backing paper and press them into position. Note that if you’re installing them on vertical surfaces, however, you may need additional glue to keep them in place.
Each plank measures 6 inches by 3 feet, to give you the look of traditional floorboards. There are 16 planks in each pack, covering an area of 24 square feet.
6. Achim Home Furnishings Nexus Vinyl Floor Planks, Light Gray Oak
Achim Home Furnishing’s Nexus vinyl planks are a very economical choice. And the light gray oak colorway looks anything but cheap.
Each plank is 6 inches wide and 3 feet long. They’re not quite as thick as more expensive vinyl, at 1.2 millimeters. Just ensure you prep your sub-floor carefully so that it’s completely smooth, and you’ll get good results.
There are 10 planks in each pack, which will cover an area of up to 15 square feet. They have adhesive already applied to the backs, so just peel away the protective film and lay them. They’re easy to maintain too, and come with a limited one-year warranty.
The main thing to be aware of with this flooring is that it contains a substance called DEHP. It’s a type of phthalate and has been linked to health problems including cancer and reproductive issues.
The general consensus is that environmental levels of DEHP are too low to cause problems to human health. But if you’re wary about chemicals in your home, there will be better options out there.
7. Westick Peel and Stick Floor Tile, Gray Marble
Westick’s floor tiles are a good choice for those looking for a stone-effect floor. They’re printed with a gray marble design that will look great in a bathroom.
Each tile is 1 millimeter thick, so you will need a smooth, clean floor to get a neat finish. They measure 12 inches on either side, and you’ll get 10 of them in each box. In other words, one box will give you coverage of 10 square feet.
The vinyl construction means the tiles are waterproof, and they’re also much warmer underfoot than real marble. Cutting them is easy, with a pair of scissors or a utility knife. You won’t need to be a DIY expert to get a neat edge around toilets and sinks.
Note that there can be color variations between different batches. To avoid that problem, measure your floor carefully and buy extra to deal with any mistakes. If you get all your tiles in one go, you’ll minimize the risk of mismatching colors.
8. Livelynine Checkered Black and White Vinyl Flooring Roll
Each roll is 78.8 inches long and 15.8 inches wide. It can be used on either floors or walls. And when it’s time for a change, it can be removed easily without leaving behind a sticky residue.
The reverse is coated in adhesive, so all you have to do is remove the backing paper and place it in position. There are useful cut lines printed on the backing paper too, helping you get a straight edge.
Each square measures 3.8 inches along each side. That will give you the checkerboard effect, no matter how big or small your floor.
Note, however, that this is very thin, at about a third of a millimeter. That means it’s easy to use on lots of different kinds of surfaces. If you want to bend it over the edge of a counter, for example, it’s ideal. But it won’t last as long as thicker vinyl when used as flooring.
9. Achim Home Furnishings Vinyl Tiles, Slate Marble
The second floor tile from Achim Home Furnishing’s Nexus range to make our list, we love this dark slate marble design. It mixes deep grays and browns to create a stylish finish that would be at home in a luxury spa. And it has a high gloss finish in keeping with the stone effect.
Like other Nexus tiles, this is a very economical purchase. Each tile is 12 inches square, and you’ll get 20 in the box. That means one pack will cover an area of 20 square feet.
At 1.2 millimeters thick, these aren’t the thickest tiles out there. They nevertheless come with a 5-year limited warranty.
The peel-and-stick design makes installation very easy. Just make sure that your subfloor is clean, smooth and level before starting work. But note, these tiles are not recommended for use on vertical surfaces like walls. The adhesive isn’t strong enough to guarantee they’ll stay in place.
As with other tiles from Achim Home Furnishings, be aware that these contain DEHP. That means these may not be the best choice if you’re concerned about air quality in your home.
10. FloorPops Remy Peel and Stick Floor Tiles
The Remy design from FloorPops mimics the appearance of ceramic tiles. It’s an attractive, classic pattern with shades of gray on a white ground.
Each tile measures 12 inches wide by 12 inches long. There are 10 in a pack, giving coverage of 10 square feet. They’re 0.06 inches thick, so you will need to ensure your subfloor is absolutely smooth before installing them. They’re not thick enough to hide any imperfections.
Do that, however, and the rest of the installation process will be straightforward. The tiles have self-adhesive backs, so it’s just a matter of peeling off the backing paper and placing them in position.
