Wood Floors in the Bathroom? Yes Please!
Can you install wood floors in the bathroom? People ask me this question all the time. For years, the answer was a resounding NO. Wood floors are incredibly sensitive to moisture and heat; they don’t usually survive years of steamy showers. However, now, with new technology, consumers can install wood floors in their bathrooms.
OK. So the truth is that you still can’t really install wood floors in the bathroom. But you can install the next best thing: Luxury Vinyl Planks. Anyone looking to remodel their bathroom should consider this product; installing wood flooring enhances all types of rooms, and this is especially true of bathrooms because wood flooring makes them look luxurious and open. Luxury Vinyl Plank has the same luxurious properties as natural wood without any of the risks.
Traditionally, people install tile flooring in bathrooms. Tiles are durable, but they are also hard, uncomfortable to walk on, and very cold during the winter. Alternatively, Luxury Vinyl Plank makes rooms look more open, is soft to walk on, and maintains an even temperature.
What Exactly Is Luxury Vinyl Plank?
Luxury Vinyl Plank (LVP) is a wood-substitute flooring option that looks and feels just like natural wood. However, Luxury Vinyl Planks are made from vinyl, which is a type of plastic. This makes Luxury Vinyl Planks water and heat resistant. They are therefore a great option for bathrooms and kitchens!
Manufacturers make Luxury Vinyl Planks by printing high quality images of wood flooring on vinyl, allowing it to look like natural wood. In addition, 3-D printing technology is used to imbue Luxury Vinyl Planks with the same texture as wood. The manufacturing process makes Luxury Vinyl Planks incredibly durable. Finally, Luxury Vinyl Planks are incredibly inexpensive, making them an even more attractive option for your home! For more detailed information on Luxury Vinyl Flooring, check out our blog here!
