Can I Install Hardwood in a Kitchen or Bathroom?



Can I install hardwood in a kitchen or bathroom?

Yes, hardwood is acceptable for installation in a kitchen or a powder room. It is recommended to put a throw rug by the sink because an excess water can damage wood. You will need to wipe up any liquid spills on the floor as soon as possible. However, a full bathroom that is showered in everyday may not be the best location for hardwood. Often there is too much water on the floor or humidity that can be absorbed into the flooring resulting in board edge cupping. Resilient and Tile floors are a better choice for these areas.
