Planning to put in new bathroom flooring? You’ve come to the right place at Flooring Innovations.

Terrazzo is an ancient material that has been around for centuries. Fifteen-century Venetian construction workers created terrazzo to use when building patios. It was originally made from chips of marble and set in clay.
In the 1950s and 1960s, terrazzo flooring peaked in popularity, and it’s now making a comeback. With terrazzo, only minimal cleaning is necessary because this flooring is non-porous and has no grout joints where dirt often accumulates — a definite advantage.
Carpet is still one of the most popular flooring choices around, providing comfort, softness underfoot, and a finished look. But deciding which type of carpet is right for both your budget and your needs is sometimes puzzling. For example, should you choose wool, which has been used for centuries to weave fine carpets, or should you invest less and choose a synthetic fiber, and if so, which one?

It’s a popular flooring option for residential homes, offering a similar appearance as hardwood but at a fraction of the cost. Of course, there are other reasons to choose laminate flooring.
Cork has quickly become one of the most popular flooring alternatives to traditional hardwood.
