Posted by Krista Payne on Jul 2, 2013 6:29:45 AM

Remember when wood was considered taboo in wet areas, especially bath rooms with soaking tubs and showers that can overflow onto the floors? Wood is abounding in artisan bath design and the old concerns of wood rot are all but negated with newly engineered woods and/or regular maintenance of sealing the wood. The latest technology combines wood that is engineered with several layers of hardwood stacked and glued together under heat and pressure.

These types of woods are less likely to be affected by extremes in humidity and moisture. This makes them suitable for basements or other damp surroundings.Wood is increasing its popularity not just in the living areas of today's home, but also in the wet areas of the home, especially the bathroom. Wood is one of those materials that never goes out of style and adds instant warmth to the space. Check out some of these innovative ways people are using reclaimed wood in their bathroom spaces.
