Bathrooms also happen to be one of the most dangerous rooms in a home. Slipper floors, sharp corners, perhaps a glass shower cubicle. Many people are injured each year following slips or trips in bathrooms, and some of those injuries, especially for the elderly, can be very serious.
When considering a tile for your bathroom floor, water resistance and anti-slip properties should be high on your list. Yet there is an easier solution. Visit one of the three Éco Dépôt showrooms in Montreal and talk to one of the tile experts. Tell them you want to see the range of floor tiles that are best suited to bathrooms, then let them do the hard work for you.
We have a full range of floor tiles that are well suited to bathrooms. You can choose between slate, with its natural anti-slip properties, and a wide range of natural stone and man-made tiles. Ceramic and porcelain tiles are available with anti-slip properties – and they are also water-resistant.
Floor tiles are a good option for bathrooms as they are durable and will last for years. They are also very easy to clean and often have very little in the way of maintenance issues long term – just sweep, mop and dry. In some cases, you may have to reseal some tiles every year or two, however, with a bathroom’s floor size being quite small, sealing can be completed very quickly.
So what are you looking for in a bathroom floor tile? Anti-slip and water resistance is easy to find – you just need to decide on the type of tile, the color of the tile, and the texture of the tile.
