Tile is the best option for your bathroom because it's 100% waterproof, cost effective, and, if done correctly, will look great in any bathroom setting.

This has become increasingly popular among many homeowners and it's a great way to tie in the rest of your home seamlessly.

Natural stone is great option for your bathroom if you can swing the high cost. It's durable, waterproof, and will make any bathroom look like HGTV has their hand in it.

Engineered wood is better than solid wood in places where moisture occurs (like your bathroom). The best part is that it looks like solid wood, which is a great option if you like the look, but don't want to risk the water damage (although, fair warning, all wood is subject to some type of damage - engineered wood just handles it better).
