Looking for something soft ie not tile for bathroom

myrtle_59October 9, 2012

I am remodeling a small bath. I do not like the feel of tile and had a parent shatter a knee on tile. I love wood but this is a bath that is used for a shower and bath everyday and we drip water.

What else can i use that will handle rhe water, not be too slippery and look decent? This bath is very small, maybe floor space of 6x8 so the per foot price is not so big a deal.

Our contractor swears by using cork: it is warm, you can buy it in sheets, and you can literally oil it with Bioshield hard oil to make it water repellent. I have used the squares before, and was not happy b/c the corners lifted outside the shower with standing water.

Some nice bath mats over tile.

Cork -- glue down, not the floating type, with additional finish added after installation.
