Look!: Wood Floors in the Bathroom

Look!: Wood Floors in the Bathroom

Hardwood floors in the bathroom?! Can this be? We know that it's possible (as evidenced above) but should we be so bold as to tempt the water gods with this choice of flooring?

Jump down to see why this AT junkie and bathroom renovator says YES!

Jellyknits decided to go for the plank treatment because she wanted the floor from the outside hallway into the bathroom to be seamless. Aesthetically, it works but technically...?

This bath is on the main floor so the shower is typically only used for overnight guests. Two rows of subway tile (used around the tub) have been brought down onto the floor to give the occasional bather six inches of splash insurance. No boys live here so the toilet tinkle factor is minimal and the sink is more often used for a quick wash-up than a messy bedtime facial. As for the thought of plumbing back-ups, we assume she's knocking on - ha! - the floor.

What are your thoughts on bathroom flooring: tile, hardwood, (gasp!) carpet?
