UNDERFLOOR HEATING AND WOOD IN THE BATHROOM

If you like to strive for a warm appearance, both literally and figuratively, we can also install floor heating under the wooden floor in the bathroom.
Wooden floors and underfloor heating are a warm combination for over two decades now. All type of underfloor heating systems are suitable to combine with wooden floors. With every system you're chosing you have different benefits. We can help you with picking the right underfloor heating system for your situation.

Sustainable wooden floors

Wood is one of the few renewable resources next to cork and wool. This makes wood a more ecologically choice than, for example, tiles or PVC. As long as the wooden floor is in place, it stores CO2. Sustainable forest management ensures that future generations can still enjoy the forests and wooden floors.

Wooden floors, valuable for people and houses

In addition to the ecological benefits, wooden floors also provide economic benefits. Because wooden floors can be renovated over time, by oiling and/or sanding, they have a long lifespan and retain their value. As a result, the investment you make when purchasing the floor is an investment for life. Having a wooden floor in the house is also something that contributes to improving the value of your home.

Wooden floors and water

With some caution, you can apply engineered wooden floors in the bathroom. Laying a solid wooden floor in bathrooms is not recommended. Due to the large difference in humidity during and after showering, as well as the contact of water directly on the wooden floor, problems arise with the expansion and contraction of these floors.

Despite the fact that wooden floors must always be glued in these areas, moisture can still run between the planks. This has consequences for the quality of the wooden floor. The action of, for example, shampoo and shower foam also has consequences for the finishing layer. Because a weld edge of 15 mm to 20 mm also remains in the bathroom (all around) and this weld edge is normally covered with, for example, a cover strip, this finish will never be watertight.

  • If you let the wooden floor continue to the bathroom, this can extend to the space where you are going to shower. Showering can't take place on the wooden floor.
  • You can enter the wooden floor after your bath and/or shower, without drying yourself off. You don't have to be afraid of a water ballet.
  • The floor could even be mopped every day if desired.

What is a bathroom ensuite?

With an ensuite bathroom, the bedroom and bathroom are in open connection with each other. This can be done by removing, for example, a door or wall between the bedroom and bathroom. Placing the bath in the bathroom also provides an ensuite bathroom. To create unity and tranquility, you can opt for a wooden floor. The wooden floor is suitable for both the bedroom and the bathroom and can continue from one room to another. It is also possible to place the bath on top of the wooden floor.

Connecting a wooden floor to another floor type

A wooden shower floor is not a great option. In the wet cell it is advisable to choose a floor that is resistant to the amount of water and soap it must handle. Floors that are often used in the shower are tile and cast floors. Uipkes wooden floors can be seamlessly connected to these floor types. In the case of a cast floor, a minimum profile must be applied when the floor is cast. The tile or cast floor must be brought to the same height as the wooden floor. In this case, no sill or edge needs to be applied, which ensures a sleek finish. In addition, it is also possible to lay the wooden floor tightly against a shower tray.

Maintaincance

Maintenance is important to extend the life of the wooden floor, especially in a damp room. Periodically the floor should be cleaned with the maintenance products. In addition, depending on the use, the floor will have to be treated with oil again after 3-5 years. After this, the floor is protected again for the coming years.
