Would you use wood in your bathroom? And, I don't mean on the typical cabinets and vanity; more like on floor, walls or even on the ceiling. Think like something more clean cut and contemporary and not too shabby or rustic. Wood panelled surfaces have the ability to add a warm touch to a sleek design even when the rest of the room keeps a stark profile. I know some of you will debate on the obvious moist issues that come hand in hand with wood, but with a careful choice of a durable exotic type and a good sealing job, you'll be fine. Your wood supplier will tell you more on this stuff and help you pick the best one for your home and lifestyle. In the meantime, you can be inspired (and tempted) by the following photos.
