20 Gorgeous Bathrooms With Wooden Floors

Hardwood flooring is one of the most popular types of flooring for homeowners today. It’s classy, low maintenance, durable, and it can last for years. Hardwood is commonly seen in the main living spaces, such as the living room, dining room, bedrooms, kitchens, and yes, it is a commonly used floor-type in bathrooms, too. You may not think that hardwood would be a flooring of choice for a place like the bathroom, knowing that wood has some issues with water and moisture, and in its unfinished state, that would be the case, but having hardwood in the bathroom is a possibility, if you love the look, and here’s what you need to consider when it comes to installing hardwood flooring in your bathroom.

Choosing your type of wood

There are a lot of types of hardwood to choose from, and most types work in many different rooms in the house, but in the bathroom it is better to stay clear of the soft woods, such ass fir and pine. They are less dense forms of wood and are the ones that are more apt to absorb moisture. Instead, choose from the harder versions, such as, white oak, cedar, maple, cherry, walnut, ash, and hickory. Teak is also a good choice for a bathroom, and is one that is commonly used, being that it is one of the main woods used on boats.

Types of finish

When it comes to choosing a finish for your hardwood in the bathroom, it’s important that you choose a high-quality finish designed for heavy-moisture environments – the bathroom. You can actually find finishes that are geared toward the outdoor, all-weather finishes, and marine-grade finishes. There are other finishes that are considered acceptable for indoor use, however, they won’t be quite as durable and you may risk moisture or water damage to the wood, especially if you have it in a bathroom where there is expected to be a lot of water about the floor, such as you would find in a family home with young kids, or pet owners who often bathe their pets in the bathtub.

You can choose beautiful hardwood flooring for your bathroom that serves both a functional and aesthetic purpose. If you want some ideas on hardwood floors for your bathroom, take a look at the following 20 gorgeous bathrooms with wooden floors to get your inspired.
