There's a lot of hesitation in choosing engineered hardwood flooring in the bathroom. After all, it is a natural wood flooring and has a real wood veneer on the top.
You can undoubtedly use engineered materials in your bathroom with some preparation. However, the more you understand why, the more peace of mind you'll have in the installation.
Engineered flooring is better in bathrooms than natural wood
Solid wood cannot hold up in areas where dampness and moisture are a constant concern. But engineered wood flooring features construction made for this environment.
Engineered hardwood flooring isn't as affected by moisture, but some precautions are necessary. Consider all these before and after installation.
Be sure to consider these facts
One of the most important things to remember with engineered wood is the humidity level. Use exhaust fans and ensure proper ventilation while showering or bathing.
Don't allow splashes or spills to sit and rest on this floor covering. Be sure to clean up and check humidity levels often to ensure your wood floors aren't too damp.
