Who doesn’t love the look of one, continuous floor from the master bed into the master bath? With hardwood floors as the go-to flooring choice for the best resale value, you may be considering a whole-home flooring upgrade with just that design in mind. But can hardwood floors really survive in the bathroom, where the humidity is high and things can be, well, damp?
We all know engineered wood is better equipped for fluctuations in humidity than traditional hardwoods, but for a bathroom where you run a risk of standing water, that’s not always enough. In fact, many engineered wood flooring manufacturers may even void the warranty on their floors if you install them in the bathroom, leaving you stuck with high VOC wood look-a-likes (think laminate or vinyl) if you want that continuous wood floor look.
Not anymore. Hardwood floors for your bathroom are here.
Best Hardwood Flooring for the Bathroom
With H2OME Waterproof Hardwoods by LIFECORE, there’s finally a waterproof hardwood floor with a 50 Year Residential, 72-Hour Waterproof Warranty to match. You can learn more about how we made it possible to have waterproof hardwoods here (including how third-party testing found our floors can handle up to 72 hours of water submersion), but we’ll give you a quick run-down.
It’s a combination of a natural, waterproof rigid core and innovative edge coating technology that provides sealed, waterproof performance. And yes, it is real oak, which doesn’t expand or contract as much as other species, providing the oak with lower permeability.
What that means for you: You can have real hardwood floors in your bathroom without worry. Added bonus? Waterproof hardwoods are wet-mop safe, making them easy to clean and maintain.
