Wood Floors In Your Bathroom

Posted in Wood Flooring News by Source on April 13rd 2012

If you are considering wood flooring for your bathrooms, you’ll be aware that the big problem with wood flooring in bathrooms is humidity.  If it wasn’t for humidity, installing wood flooring in your bathrooms would be no problem at all.  But if you make the right choices and take the right precautions, wood flooring for bathrooms can be a great option.

Solid wood or laminate floors aren't usually suitable for bathrooms as the humidity will cause the material to discolour, swell and warp. But hardwood floorings, such as teak and bamboo, can work well (double-check with Source Wood Floors first) and engineered wood and bathroom-specific laminate - made with PVC - are designed to withstand moisture.

If you decide that you want to install wood flooring in your bathroom or shower room, we would recommend that you install engineered wood flooring and not solid wood flooring.  Solid wood flooring, as the name suggests is made from one single plank of wood whereas engineered flooring is made up of a thin layer of real wood secured on top of a plywood base.  Because of the structure of engineered wood flooring, it is better able to withstand the humidity and splashes and spills it’ll come up against in shower rooms and bathrooms.
