Bathroom Wood Floor Questions
Is the bathroom wood-floor friendly?
Absolutely! If you are getting ready to remodel your bathroom, you are going to be amazed at all the flooring choices on the market. Most folks don’t think of a bathroom wood floor, but it’s an excellent option to spruce up your space. Hardwood floors have always been popular in our main living areas, but are not an ideal choice for our bathrooms –not anymore! Check out the water-resistant tile flooring that looks like real wood. This popular tile comes in a wide variety colors and sizes, so it’s sure to fit in with many decorating styles.
A good wood-look tile to consider would be the Avaire Commercial Tile Floors Plank Collection, which features a sleek ThinLine grout line; and comes in several colors. The 6″x24″ design is the perfect way to add the look of wood, with the durability and beauty of porcelain tile.
Match Tile to your Style
To create a classic look, consider the Pecan shade. It has the look of a more formal hardwood and the rich tones of Traditional decor. The wider planks or lighter shades create a Transitional feel, offering the perfect balance to your room and giving it the class of a bathroom wood floor.
If you are after a bright and clean look, Twilight may be your perfect fit. Although this is a darker shade, pairing this flooring with a contemporary color palette and chrome fixtures can give you an updated modern feel, yet still be warm and inviting.
Outside of being “stylish”, the wood-look tiles also offer easy maintenance and moisture resistance while giving the look of a bathroom wood floor. They can be installed in a variety of decorative designs from a classic brick-lay, or a creative herringbone pattern. These tiles can endure the test of time and look amazingly like real wood. They are sure to enhance your bathroom remodel project and complement your personal design style!
