It depends on you personal preference, skill level, time, and money. Tell us more of what you think you want.

Welcome to the forums!

IMO ceramic tile [or porcelain] is the best, any wood or laminate would be the worse .... considering carpet would just be idiotic

Ceramic is my first choice, vinyl second.

As Norm said, some input from you is needed to give YOU a good answer.

Rubberized flooring is an option that no one uses.

Option #1 would be tile. Option #2 would be wood. option #58 would be vinyl.

Much depends on your personal preferences and habits. If you leave puddles on the floor for days then carpet is probably not a good choice.

IMO wood is not a good option for a bath rm floor! Water can damage wood and the only thing protecting the wood from the water is the finish ...... and that seldom seals the joint between boards.
Ceramic tile is durable and fairly water resistant, vinyl while not as durable won't let water thru except along the perimeter.
