Engineered wood in 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
I wouldn't recommend putting the engineered wood in the bathroom , they aren't really design for the water and humidity you get in there.
An option that i would recommend you looking into is called kardean ,they are hard wearing plastic vinyl tile (not the cheap vinyl you get from carpet right) they come in different design of wood, stone effects and can be laid
in different patterns and angles that you can't do with normal wood. They don't have as cold a feeling as you get with tiled floors and laminate .
Iv put a link below for you check out there product information and the ranges they sell . Hope that helps in some little way
