The bathroom is widely known as one of the most difficult rooms to find flooring for. Carpet is often out of the question and there’s sometimes a worry that wood will expand due to humidity changes. Luckily, we’re here to help you make an informed decision about some great wood flooring options for your bathroom.

Putting tile around your tub and using engineered wood floor for the rest helps give you the best of both worlds. It’s no secret that moisture and wood floors don’t mix well, but engineered wood is a great option for bathrooms because it is designed to prevent expansion. In this bathroom, the tile offers a surface near the tub that helps catch water before it gets to the wood.

We love the idea of an engineered oak floor in a bathroom without a shower. Showers let off a lot of steam, adding extra moisture into the room and its floors. By just having a large bathtub, less steam is able to escape into your wood, making your floors last for years to come.

This bathroom is like an oasis, with a vanity area opening up into a bathroom that holds a traditional claw foot tub. We love the contrasting looks of dark wood and white fixtures. It adds a fresh, clean look that every bathroom should strive for.
