Contemplating wood floors in new construction master bath

October 4, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We live on a working goat dairy farm. The house is in the finishing stage. As I decide about flooring I wonder about putting wood in our master bathroom. Does it hold up over time and will our radiate heat be effective? I think all tile : in the shower and around the tub and on the floor, is incongruent to a farmhouse. Feedback? Thanks

I have wood floors in a powder room, but I would not do wood floors in a bathroom with tub/shower. It is just too wet an environment. Actually, I don't think I have ever seen wood floors in a bathroom.

It is a very warm lovely look. You should check out some photos. Think farmhouse, all floors were once wood. We will get wide plank.

The only thing more fitting than tile might be the vinyl plank flooring...

Working farmhouses are just made for tile...that's really the most durable, easy-to-clean floor choice available. The only thing I could think of that might be more practical is stained and polished concrete

we have slate in our mudroom and tile in the powder/laundry room. This is our master bath. Big soaking tub and luxurious getaway. This is a spot far away from the creamery and goat world!

There is tile out there now that actually looks like wood.

I'd suggest porcelain tile planks that look like wood. http://www.qualityflooring4less.com/marazzi-american-heritage-spice-6.html

I think wood flooring is a great choice for your home - it keeps things completely consistent with your farmhouse aesthetic and being authentic has a great deal of value. One thought about wood flooring - think about staining and only waxing - not finishing with a polyurethane top coat. See photos - we've been installing this type of flooring recently in some of our authentic beach house and ranch houses projects with gorgeous livable results. No scratching! And they only require a damp mop with a few drops of vinegar or windex in the water - then re-wax every couple of years. Low maintenance with a "living finish". I think they would also work just fine in a bathroom! You can find out more about this kind of finish from Exquisite Surfaces (203) 866-9100
