There is nothing to say you can not be a bit more creative and innovate together with your bathroom décor, and it all starts with the right floor covering and essential fixtures like the tub.

People today think that wood floors can’t be fitted in bathrooms, as they react badly to the moisture and humidity in those damp spaces. But if you choose the right product and protect it correctly, laminate or wood flooring can a fantastic choice. It can help create a traditional and unusual feature bathroom, where the pure beauty of this wood makes the room relaxing, soothing and not with a dash of rustic charm.

f you want wood in the bathroom, go for a flooring using a water-resistant end or a laminated flooring especially designed for the toilet such as the Quick-Step Lagune.

In addition to this stunning natural-looking material, add a freestanding bath to really make your bathroom a characteristic of your property. Place your new tub in the centre of the area, so as to really draw the eye, and then start enjoying your unique new bathroom.

For starters, keeping your dog’s nails trimmed really helps! No matter how attentive you’re with nail trimming and maintaining paws clean, some tiny scratches may still appear. To reduce the look of the scrapes, avoid high-gloss finishes. Some species of wood floors are better suited to dog friendly homes than many others!

Hickory wood floors are excellent as they have a pretty high Janka hardness score. Its colour variations and strong grain patterns make hickory good at hiding imperfections. In the unlikely event that there’s some harm, it probably will not be nearly as noticeable.

Maple
If you would prefer a hardwood that is a bit more consistently colored and patterned than hickory, consider Maple. Maple remains nice and hard so that it is going to resist damage. Maple wood floors are available in many different shades, also, so your house can be trendy and pet friendly!

White oak has a Janka rating of 1,360, which sets it in the middle of the scale. It is strong enough to resist dog toes but pliable enough to be more comfortable for your feet.

Colours in wooden floors world

Hardwood floors doesn’t have to be a sea of brown. The traditional and classic choice of home owners is brown colour and it’s varies, but these days we see an interest in new visions and more colourful designs of home and office interiors and also wood floors. Universally available finish colours suggest wonderful array of whites, browns, blacks and reds and even blue ones!

Traditionally, hardwood flooring came in thick planks of solid timber. Today, solid hardwood is still widely available, but many of our clients also prefer an engineered flooring. It is made of planks with a thinner top layer of hardwood, bonded to other layers and designed to prevent the floor from shifting during expansion or contraction cycles.

Solid wood from other side is generally installed over one or two layers of plywood, which can raise the height of a floor and interfere with existing doors or marginally reduced ceiling height but their long lasting is a big advantage! Choose carefully and contact with experts if you have new ideas for the colour of your floors, because some engineered floors have top layers so thin that they can’t be sanded and refinished in the future, and solid particles of pigment suspended in a solvent, applied to wood to darken or change its natural colour, but if you want to get out of the brown one you need to take advantage of flooring samples and choose the best for you with the help of our experts!
