Wood Flooring and Water
When taking into accout some caution, it is possible to install an engineered wood floor in the bathroom. Installing a solid hardwood floor in a bathroom is not recommended. Due to the large difference in air humidity during and after you take a shower, as well as the contact of water directly on the wooden floor, problems arise with the expansion and shrinkage of these solid hardwood floors. Despite the fact that wood floors in these areas must always be glued, moisture can still sometimes flow between the boards. This has an effect on the quality of the wooden floor. The effects of shampoo and shower foam, for example, also affect the finish of the floor. Because the wooden bathroom floor is placed from 15 mm to 20 mm from the wall and is usually covered with a coverlist, this finish will be water resistant but never waterproof.
For all these reasons, taking a shower cannot take place on the wooden floor itself. You can install a wooden floor in the bathroom up to the area where showering takes place. The wooden floor can be entered after your bath or shower without drying yourself. You do not have to be afraid of a water ballet.
The floor could be cleaned every day, if desired.
