What Is the Best Color for a Floor in the Bathroom?


Whether you're adding a bathroom to your home or want to do some renovations on an existing home restroom, you'll want to ensure that the colors in the space are consistent with your design preferences. Choosing the right floor color for your bathroom space can completely change the look of the area, making your bathroom a bright and functional room or a section of the home that promotes relaxation.


  • Gray is a neutral color that will complement the bathroom well since it goes with a variety of color schemes, from light, pastel colors like yellow and pistachio green to deep hues like hunter green or burgundy. If you've decided to go with a gray bathroom floor, chances are you also have gray tile in the shower or accenting the mirror and sink areas. Gray bathroom floors will look modern and sleek in tile or rustic and timeless when made from stone materials.


  • Bathroom tile in a neutral shade like tan or beige matches with virtually any other decor you put in the space; materials like vinyl are ideal for floors in this color since the material is moisture resistant and flattering in a lighter shade. To go for a more sophisticated look, beige tile with streaks of white or darker brown hues will make the bathroom especially welcoming; dark-colored linens or shower curtains work well with this type of flooring. If the bathroom is connected to a bedroom that has tan carpet, bathroom floors in the same color scheme make the entire area appear larger.


  • Black bathroom flooring is best reserved for the modern bathroom with lots of space as the color will make this part of your home seem especially comfortable and intimate. Black tile or granite flooring is particularly impressive if the restroom has a black and white theme and adds even more contrast to the space if you want to use a pop of color like red or purple among the black and white decor.


  • If you've selected an array of colors for the bathroom, a multicolored floor made in a mosaic theme or from tiles in different hues is best. A mosaic design in the center of the bathroom floor that fits the bathroom theme, such as a star or goldfish, is appealing for a children's bathroom. Simple themes that can work with various types of decor, like a series of squares in varying tile colors that match the linens, work well in the powder room or master bathroom.
