How To Choose Flooring for your Laundry Room

By , On , In Home Flooring

Laundry room flooring takes a lot of abuse and the choice of flooring you make can make a big difference.

Whether you have brand new appliances or older models, all washers and dryers produce movement, heat, humidity and moisture. Therefore, if you want your flooring to last for years to come you should select a product that is durable enough to withstand these conditions.

To help you make the best possible decision we put together this guide of the best and worst flooring options for laundry rooms.

Worst Flooring For Your Laundry Room


Carpet is simply the worst flooring option for laundry rooms. This may sound obvious, but we’ve seen it before. Perhaps because the idea of doing your laundry on a soft and plush carpet sounds like a dream.

Carpet fibers trap dust and dirt, which can be a good thing in living rooms and bedrooms as it helps improve indoor air quality. But in a wet or moist environment, trapped dust and debris can grow into toxic mold.

Solid Hardwood

Who doesn’t love the look of hardwood throughout their entire home? Well sadly, solid hardwood and laundry rooms are not a good match.

The high levels of moisture, humidity and threat of water damage are a few of the reasons why hardwood should not be used in your laundry room. Add heavy appliances and a ton of vibration and you are asking for a flooring disaster. Your floors will look amazing at the beginning but eventually the movement and vibration from your appliances will cause your hardwood to scratch and dent.

Fortunately, if you have your heart set on the look of hardwood floors there are a ton of more suitable flooring options, which we will go into more detail shortly.


Laminate comes in many different styles and is a good flooring choice for living rooms, family rooms, offices or bedrooms.

Laminate flooring however is not recommended for areas of your home that are at risk of water leaks and damage. Despite the claims that laminate is water resistant, it will not be able to hold up to leaks. Water will seep and absorb into the core material, damaging your flooring and causing it to warp.

You will eventually need to replace your laminate flooring if there is water damage.

Best Flooring For Your Laundry Room

Sheet Vinyl

Sheet vinyl is one of the most waterproof materials available. It also comes in many unique styles, designs and colours so you are sure to find a product you love.

Although sheet vinyl is water resistant it does not hold up as well to dropped objects as well as moving large appliances, such as your washer and dryer, which can damage and scratch the surface. Sheet vinyl is a great flooring solution for laundry rooms because it is low-maintenance, less expensive, and easy to clean.

ADURA Vinyl Plank

If you are wanting something a little higher end for your laundry room or entry way, then you will want to consider luxury vinyl.

ADURA Vinyl Plank Flooring by Mannington is a luxury vinyl flooring product that is waterproof, kid and pet friendly, easy to clean and maintain, and has exceptional durability and performance that you will only find in luxury vinyl products.

You can’t go wrong with choosing tile for your laundry room due to its incredibly durable and waterproof characteristics. It’s only downside is that it’s usually more expensive than other choices.
