There’s a reason hardwood flooring is a popular choice for homes. Durable, timeless, and beautiful, it is a practical material and a decorative asset. At AltruFir, we’ve found Douglas Fir is a great choice for bathroom flooring. Here are some tips to take care of your charming wooden bathroom floors: 

Give Your Flooring Top-Notch Treatment
With a toilet, sink, and shower confined within four walls, leaks and spills are inevitable when it comes to bathroom floors. Prevent your Douglas fir flooring from getting stained or warped by treating it with a protective finish, such as polyurethane. Four coats might be time consuming, but it will be worth the effort to form a  barrier to keep your floors safe from water damage.

If you feel nervous about water damage or have a shower that is prone to leaks, consider laying a row of tile flooring around the bathtub. This method lets you to enjoy the beauty of hardwood flooring in the bathroom without worrying about water spills.

Stay Stress-Free with Bath Mats
Every bathroom should have two bath mats: one in front of the sink and one in front of the bathtub. This way, you can take a shower or wash your face without worrying about stray water ending up on the floor. Not only are mats a practical way to save your floor, they come in great designs for a nice decorative touch to your bathroom.  

Be Prepared
If your child gets too enthusiastic splashing in the tub or your faucet springs a leak, your floors don’t have to suffer. Keep a dry cloth in one of your cabinets to clean up spills; it’s the simplest solution for water surprises.
