I’ve been seeing a lot of showroom images where wood is used for the bathroom/kitchen flooring. My contractor and my mom has advised me against this – saying it will be a problem longterm. I’ve never used the homedepot/lowes wood flooring before. I’ve always had solid oak wood floors installed and then sealed/stained. Is there a right way/a certain type of material to use for “wet/moist” areas like the bathroom and kitchen?
I am also thinking about doing another kitchen in the retro black and white checkered squares, installed at a diagonal. What materials do you recommend for this?
