Yesterday, Will Adams, Bath Simple’s first certified designer, revealed the
modern vanity for the company’s showroom. Today, we talk floor tile…
Q: What type of flooring did you choose, and why?
A: The floor is made up of 16-inch-square vinyl composite stone tiles. It was a very affordable and durable choice that’s easy to clean. It’s also easy to install; you can cut the tiles with a utility knife and float them on an existing floor.
Q: What role does the flooring play in the style of this bath?
A: It looks like a natural material, in this case stone, which contributes to the visual warmth of the room. Many people think of modern style as cold and clinical, but it needn’t be. Natural materials like wood and stone—or the appearance of them—will instantly warm up a cleanlined design.
Q: How did you select the color of the flooring?
A: I chose the Chalk color because it picked up the colors in the Ash and Olive wood vanity. The random pattern and texture of the tile give it depth that you couldn’t get from a solid-color floor.
Q: What are the benefits of using a large floor tile in a small bath?
A: From a practical standpoint, there are fewer cuts required to install it, which speeds the project. On the visual side, the floor looks nearly seamless, like it’s one large piece of stone, which makes the room look spacious.
