Bathroom Shower: Teak Floors
Teak resists moisture, making it a popular choice for wooden shower mats and floors.
Teak wood is enjoyed because of its beauty and because of its high oil content, which makes it more moisture-resistant than most other types of wood. Teak is sometimes used in swim platforms on boats, and has been used in shipbuilding for centuries. It requires little maintenance even in the dampest conditions, making it a viable option for shower use.
Teak can be used in a shower due to its inherent oils that make it resistant to fungus and moisture without any extra treatment whatsoever. Some companies specialize in teak shower accessories such as benches and bath mats. Some products are rubbed with teak oil to give them a darker finish and can be maintained by applying more oil as desired.
While teak requires little maintenance, if used directly in the shower, it’s prone to acquiring soap scum, much like the shower curtain and shower stall. Scrubbing it gently with water and a soft-bristled brush removes soap scum; be sure to check sides and underside areas of your teak shower accessories as well, where the soap may not be as visible.
Take your investment into the ultimate bath one step further by adding warmth and beauty of a teak shower floor! Teak wood can add a non-slip surface to surround your shower with a rich, natural feel. Add a teak wood bench to your shower for a more relaxing vibe or to assist older guests. Here are a few examples of the beauty that a teak wood floor can bring to any shower.Share
