Re: Hard wood flooring in a bathroom?
It's not the hardness of the wood, it's the quality and durability of the finish that will prevent surface spills from penetrating and staining or damaging the flooring.
I personally would not put hardwood in a full bathroom (a half bath, no problem ) because of the propensity for water to always be on the floor. Also, depending on the type of flooring your choosing, it may not fair well under the weight of a claw foot tub.
I suffer from CDO ... Its like OCD, but in alphabetical order, LIKE IT SHOULD BE!!!
