Can I Have Hardwood Floors in My Bathroom?
Watch any home remodeling TV show or flip through a design magazine and you’ll see that hardwood floors are as popular as ever. But what about wood flooring for bathrooms? Wood floors have traditionally been advised against. However, new materials on the market allow you to get the look of wood without the upkeep and repair required of traditional hardwood floors. Read on to discover how Devine Color Floor's range of bathroom flooring options can help you mimic the look of hardwoods, right down to the unique grain and color of ash, oak, pine, and more.
Wood floors in bathrooms usually don't perform well: they're apt to breed mold, bow, and bubble due to moisture. A great alternative to real hardwood floors, however, is wood-look flooring. Luxury Vinyl Tile, or LVT flooring, is gaining popularity with both homeowners and designers due to its durability, low-maintenance upkeep, and cost-efficiency. Vinyl wood floors are also waterproof and sound-absorbing, making them perfect for homes with small children. Additionally, these synthetic floors retain heat better than tile so you won't have to endure cold feet after your bath or shower.
Vinyl plank flooring is also easy to clean with a wet or dry dust mop, broom, or vacuum. It's built strong and designed to withstand the chaos of daily life, making it ideal for homes with children and pets. You don’t need to worry about Fido’s nails, your high heels, or furniture scratching the surface. If your bathroom flooring does somehow get scratched or dented, there’s no need to replace it entirely. Simply remove and replace the damaged portion of flooring.
Devine Color Floors are designed to blend harmoniously with your paint and overall design. Your Devine Bath professional can help you create a bathroom flooring design that’s perfect for your space.
