Upgrade Your Wettest Room With Wood Or Other Flooring


Posted in Wood Flooring by Source on October 26th 2013
>It is essential when you’re considering which type of flooring to install in your bath or shower room to bear in mind that if you don’t make the right decisions at the outset, you could be left really disappointed with the long-term performance of your floor. If you’re  thinking of upgrading your bathroom floor, consider wood flooring.  If it wasn’t for humidity, installing wood flooring in your bathrooms would be no problem at all. When choosing bathroom flooring, you have the same considerations as you do for flooring for other rooms in your house. Is it durable?

Does it look nice or tacky? How does it feel under bare feet. But if you make the right choices and take the right precautions, wood flooring for bathrooms can be a great option. So if you go ahead and decide that you want to  install wood flooring in your bathroom or bathrooms, it's probably  recommended that you install engineered wood flooringand 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 to 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.

Because of the structure of engineered wood flooring, it is better able to withstand the humidity you’ll experience in bathrooms. Once your wood floor is laid in your bathroom, you need to think about wood flooring finish.  There are two options: one is lacquer and the other is hard wax oil.  Lacquer will make the wood flooring in your bathroom pretty much waterproof and will help cut down your maintenance requirements.  This is because lacquer effectively creates a protective coating over the wood making it resistant to damage and moisture.
