    There are tons of porcelain/ceramic tiles out there now that look just like wood. You'll find all styles and colors. Just google to find.

    I'm about to put hardwoods in our master bath and have had so much opposition. One store wants me to sign a waiver and says the manufacturer will not warranty the wood in a bathroom. Have you had any problems or did u run into so much controversy?

    Hi Muddy04

    I can only speak from my experience in my bathroom, I have had no problems at all with it, no stains or water marks. I would worry if the floor had to come up for any reason as would all have to come up!

    I certainly wasn't warned or faced any controversy.

    I wasn't warned against any problems and its been down now for two years and no problems, but can only speak for myself.

    Good luck! Vickie

    I know wood is durable but how practical is it for a bathroom? I'm currently deciding/torn between tile and wood for our bath remodels. Thanks! Love this space by the way.
  • PRO
    Interior Therapy

    Hi Yasmin, thank you. I know that a lot of manufacturers of wood flooring advise against it in the bathroom, I however have had no problems with the wood I chose, it doesn't stain ( although I wouldn't leave it really wet ) and would defiantly use again.

    There are however some great wood looking tiles around that would also achieve the look if you felt that this was a more suitable flooring.

    I think the main thing is if you did decide to go with a wood flooring I would double check that they advise that this can be used in a bathroom, that way your covered.

    Hope this helps

    Thanks Vickie

    We haven't had any issues with it at all, and it does get wet from the shower. There are no water marks at all either and it has been down now for two years. No protector was added either when it was laid.

    I know that a lot of companies advise against laying Wood flooring but all I can say that we have had no problems at all and are very happy with it.

    Is the 1/4" quarter round tile the same on the corner columns where the grey tiles meet, as it is on top of the tile where the radiator is and the side of the shower where the tile meets the wall? The column looks very clean too. And, I agree you are most kind to answer all our questions.

    To be honest I can't comment on the water marks over time, but haven't had a single water mark on the wood so far, it doesn't seem to make a difference, whether that is because of the type of wood of even if this makes a difference.

      7. Ditch the TubForgoing the bathtub isn’t for everyone, but if you tend not to take long soaks, it could be a money-saving option. “We’ve noticed more customers opting for showers rather than baths, and this can not only bring down the initial … outlay, but [also] lower running costs long-term due to greater energy efficiency,” Ghaly says.Before and After: 6 Bathrooms That Said Goodbye to the Tub

      Dark engineered oak in a wide plank brings a classic feel to this bathroom. Disadvantages of engineered wood floors. Not all engineered flooring is created equal. Some products are made to last while others are poorly made, so be sure to do your research before you make your selection. While many products are thick enough to look and feel just like solid wood, some engineered wood planks can sound more hollow under the foot. Installation method can make a difference here — stapling or gluing the planks to the subfloor tends to diminish this hollow sound. Again, check with the manufacturer to find out how your preferred method of installation might affect how hollow the floor sounds. Engineered flooring handles moisture swings better than solid-wood flooring, but it may still not be the best choice in bathrooms, laundry rooms, basements or other areas where flooding could be an issue. Consult with your contractor about the use of engineered wood flooring in these areas of your house. Can you refinish engineered wood floors? While solid wood can be refinished many times, engineered wood may be sanded and refinished less often throughout the life of the floor. The thicker the wear layer, the more sanding an engineered floor can take. If you have pets and kids and are concerned about scratches, I recommend you look at engineered wood with a thicker layer so you can sand and refinish the floor if needed.
