For a long time, wood was dismissed as being unsuitable for the bathroom. The general opinion was that mould would quickly pose a problem. This is surprising, given that wood has long been prized as a building material and has been put to use in shipbuilding and window construction – areas in which contact with water is unavoidable. Solid wood furniture has also historically been commonplace in kitchens, where there is a great deal of steam and splatters.
Gradually, we are seeing a paradigm shift when it comes to wood in bathrooms. You can find real wood on the floor, as wall panels, and in bathroom furniture, while lay-on washbasins are increasingly being mounted on fine pieces of solid wood. You can now even get wooden bathtubs and washbasins.
Wood is alive – which means that it is a characteristic of wood to absorb moisture and release it again. This has a positive and health-enhancing effect on the climate of a room. In addition, some types of wood are known for their antibacterial properties which result from their high acid content. In the bathroom, where hygiene is important, this is a pretty good quality to have.
