High-quality floors made from wood are always the right choice, even for spaces that you might initially think them unsuitable, such as wet rooms. The stylish, atmospheric look they create is not the only advantage of a hardwood floor: wood is also antibacterial by nature and therefore especially hygienic. Choosing the right wood, gluing it properly to the subfloor and applying the right surface treatment all give rise to a wonderful feel and pleasant room climate underfoot and in the room.
Wood types that react only minimally to moisture, i.e. expand or contract very little when there are changes in humidity, are particularly well suited to the bathroom area. Such woods include e.g. oak or smoked oak. Woods such as maple or beech are not suitable for the bathroom. The grading should also be a calmer one so that water does not penetrate into the wood via cracks or bigger knots.
