The wood in the bathroom

See that bathroom that had a beautiful herringbone wood floor. About the  the look of wood floors in the bathroom, they aren't the most practical because of moisture and potential water damage from overflowing toilets, showers, and kidds who close sink stoppers and leave the water running while the family goes to church.
Today, you have to   you might want to consider it for your home as an alternative to actual wood if you love that wood floor look.
The specific type and style of flooring you opt for will depend on several factors including budget, size of the floorboards and wood species. If you like thin and long planks of wood, you should choose strip flooring. If you prefer the aesthetic of very wide planks of wood, then plank flooring is the best choice, and if you have a more decorative look in mind (perhaps a geometric design) parquet flooring would be a perfect match for your taste.
