The Bathroom Flooring Trends That Will Dominate in 2023 and Beyond

Bathrooms are the sanctuary of the home and for homeowners looking to freshen up their space, Flooring Superstore has revealed some of its favourite bathroom flooring trends.


Josh Barber, Head of Buying & Merchandising, at Flooring Superstore, said: “Bathrooms are the perfect place to get experimental with your interior choices. While the rest of the house is likely to have a seamless flow from one space to the next with complementary design – the bathroom, as a self-contained smaller space, is where you can let your personality shine through with more creative décor.


“Whether you’re looking to introduce a taste of the tropical outdoors, create a peaceful ambience to unwind at the end of the day, or make a statement with your style – there’s a flooring option to embrace every aesthetic, while being practical for the bathroom.”

  1. Bring the outdoors in


“Natural colours and materials will continue to be big in 2023, with blues, greens and wood tones all popular choices for a bathroom as these tones evoke a feel of the outdoors. Embracing this trend is a sure-fire way to bring a spa-like feel to any bathroom space.


“When it comes to flooring choice, while natural wood isn’t the most durable option for a bathroom, advances in technology mean replicas of real wood flooring are as close to the real thing as you can get, with added durability and, most importantly for the bathroom, are water resistant.”

2. Go wild with tiles

“Elevate any bathroom space with a chic pattern and these days, it’s all about going bold. All white bathrooms are a thing of the past and now it’s about being daring with your design choices and patterned flooring is a fantastic way to achieve this.


“Vinyl with a tile effect pattern is a great way to get creative in the bathroom as it’s affordable, made from resilient, synthetic materials and is hardwearing and resistant to water. On top of that, it’s easy to clean and there’s a vast array of patterns, colours and designs to choose from.”

3. Make a statement with stone

“Whether it be marble-effect, slate or limestone, we are seeing stone effect patterns continue to dominate bathroom design choices. A great way to add texture and depth to any bathroom aesthetic, stone effect also gives the sense of the outdoors while creating a cosy and warm space.


“Vinyl flooring options are a much more affordable way to get the statement look of stone, without the huge price tag and installation costs that porcelain and ceramic can carry.”

4. It’s there in black and white

“A more traditional and period style look, chequerboard, chessboard and monochromatic mosaics will enter the bathroom space this year and bring a luxe hotel feel to any bathroom. Black and white works particularly well in a functional space like a bathroom and lends itself to a splash of colour for a modern twist.”

5. Go bold and beautiful

“Now is the time to get adventurous with colour and the bathroom is a great place to start.

Bold, saturated colours will start taking more neutral tones such as beige, grey and greige that have been a mainstay of interior colour palettes for a while now.


“It's all about colours that make you feel good and we’ve seen an increase in popularity for shades which traditionally you wouldn’t see in décor choices such as pinks, yellows and even reds.”


Get the look:

  • Flooring Superstore’s Patterned Tiles Geometric features shades of peach, gold, sky blue and cotton white to add a unique splash of colour into any bathroom space. And the quality vinyl materials make it comfortable underfoot, easy to clean and durable. £11.99 per square metre.
