The reason these two rooms of the home
are often considered inappropriate locations for hardwood floors comes down to the nature of wood. If you use solid wood, you're utilizing a natural resource known to expand and contract in
response to the surrounding environment. The bathroom and kitchen are two rooms known to fluctuate in humidity and attract moisture, so they were traditionally considered off limits for wood
It's difficult not to fall in love when
you see pictures of large kitchens lined with shiny dark hardwood floors, so you're probably hoping there's a solution. Luckily, you can now choose laminate flooring to achieve the look of wooden floors in any room that may fluctuate in humidity or
involve the use of water. This is a manufactured flooring made from fiber board and other synthetic materials, but the top layer is imprinted to create the look of wood grain.
If you want to add wood to your kitchen
and bathroom, it's important to work with a hardwood flooring professional to ensure that you select the best material and that the materials are properly installed.
