Don't Be Afraid Of Wood Floors In Bathrooms
Wood flooring in bathrooms used to be a big no-no. The high humidity would damage and warp the material, making it useless in a short amount of time. But today's hardwood is different: you can treat it and protect it and use it virtually anywhere.
Today's bathrooms have also changed: with powerful vents and improved construction techniques, they can be kept low in humidity. This makes wood flooring possible when it wasn't before.
Although bathroom wood floors still require careful finishing and maintenance, the style benefits are worth it. Wood is warm, stylish, and beautiful. If you're not a big fan of the cold, clinical look that's common for bathrooms, then wood will certainly suit your tastes. Hardwood floors come in different colors and styles, making it a perfect choice for a variety of decor projects.
This retro bathroom by Interior Therapy, for example, features a reclaimed wood floor that adds to the aged style of the space. It adds warmth in contrast to the cooler grey tile and brings a wonderful balance to the whole.Continue to 2 of 15 below.
