WOOD FLOORING IN THE BATHROOM
Hardwood flooring are a better choice as compared to carpets. However, there are particular things you have to consider while choosing hardwood floors for your bathroom. The very first thing you will need to make sure is that the floor is installed perfectly with no openings whereby the moisture can trickle inside the wood.
The second most important thing is to be certain that the wood is protected. Unprotected wood will stain, warp, enlarge, and plump in the touch of almost any liquid. So so as to avoid this, you have to get the hardwood floors on your washroom finished with a finishing agent such as a polyurethane sealer which will make an invisible layer over the wood, making sure that no water has been consumed within the hardwood flooring. Special care needs to be taken to your hardwood floors interior bathrooms. The finish needs to be applied several times over the hardwood floors.
The third thing which you want to consider when choosing a hardwood floor for your bathroom is the kind of wood that you choose for the floors. There are a few species of timber that are more harmonious with the moisture requirements within the bathroom. Avoid softwoods like Fir and Pine as they have a tendency to absorb more moisture. Always consult the manufacturer on warranty for toilet applications.
The best part of hardwood floors is the fact that they come with guarantees and you can get them replaced if the material fails. However, the warranty may not cover the whole area of a bathroom since it's a water heavy environment, but some guarantees do cover half of the areas of the bathroom which aren't as prone to becoming entangled with water like a half bath or powder room.
Hardwood flooring is best to give your bathroom a grand appearance. You can opt for the mixture of flooring within your bathroom, enjoying the charm of timber in the areas that do not come in contact with water while using another material for flooring where there is more moisture such as the shower area.
