Bathroom Fitting Question

Would you use engineered wood in a bathroom?

we wanted to use the original floor board sanded back in our bathroom, but after removing the inherited laminate and plywood we found cement.

I have been advised i can use engineered wood, although i wil have to wipe it if it get wet.

Our bathroom is pretty cold under foot with laminate.

Any advise? do's and don'ts? What would be our best option to get a wood effect?

Thanks for your time

Hi Mark

There are some very realistic wood effect tiles on the market now that look just like real wood planks or floorboards. You could have electrical underfloor heating installed on top the concrete floor then finished with these tiles. That would give you both a warm floor that would dry very quickly together with a floor that looks just like real wood
