If bathroom tile isn’t for you, teak flooring could be a wise choice for your bathroom flooring needs.

Teak floors are available in many style and color variations. Some examples of teak flooring include Chinese teak, Burma teak, African teak, Golden teak, and Brazilian teak.

Finishes can vary from natural to light, to dark, to even mahogany. Teak bathroom flooring is beautiful because it looks sharp and simple with straight lines. For a more customized look, the use of patterns in the layout adds depth and variety to the finished flooring.

Benefits of teak flooring include having a natural resistance to water, mold, mildew, and even bugs.

No matter what type or style of teak flooring you choose, it’s critical to care for it to assure it looks great for years to come. Luckily, teak flooring doesn’t require a high level of care. To avoid damages, always be mindful of things that could scratch or stain the wood. A properly sealed floor is assumed.

Cleaning Tips

Always use a soft broom with soft bristles on hardwood flooring. Brooms with hard or stiff bristles could potentially scratch the floor.
If you see large stains or dirt that’s hard to remove, use a hard sponge with a small amount of neutral soap and rub gently. A little bit of soap goes a long way and could potentially damage the wood, so go easy.

Protection Tips:

To minimize wear and tear on your floors, consider placing mats by all potential access points that enter into teak wood flooring areas. To decrease the chance of damages from scratching furniture, add scratch protection on the bases of your furniture.

Conservation Tips:

Optimally, teak floors should get sanded with 120 grit sandpaper every couple of years. By taking the time to do this task, the teak will look renewed – so much that you might even think that it’s new! However, this is a job that you should defer to a professional, as he or she will have the tools, the skills, and the know-how to accomplish this job without damaging or ruining the teak floors.

Special Attention

Avoid rubbing your teak floor with any type of brush that has hard bristles. While they might seem relatively innocent, these bristles can cause serious damage to wood floors. In addition to not using hard bristles, also avoid using detergents that contain bleach or ammonia on wooden floors, as they cause serious damage to the wood.

Teak bathroom accessories and teak bathroom cabinets are the perfect addition to your master or guest bathrooms. Types of bathroom accessories you can find made out of teak include:

Baskets – Teak baskets are the ideal place to store extra hand towels, hand soap, tissues, magazines or books, and other everyday bathroom needs.

Shelving – Everyone can use a little extra space to add decorations or functional storage space for odds and ends in the bathroom. Teak shelving looks terrific and isn’t negatively affected by moisture and humidity that is often common in washrooms.

Folding Shower Seats – Folding shower seats are helpful for people who want or need to sit down while showering. If not used when showering, a folding shower seat can also get used as a table or a storage area for items. Or, it can get folded up and tucked away. It is entirely up to you!

Towel Racks – Teak towel racks help assure that your bath towels are fresh and dry when you go to use them. All you need to do is hang them after using and let nature do the rest. Since teak is moisture and bacteria-resistant, teak towel racks are ideal for drying towels, washcloths, bathing suits, and more.

Corner Stools – Corner stools tuck away nicely in the corner, providing space for someone to sit, or to use for storage. While styles vary, some types of corner seats offer additional shelving to store items like candles, lotion, and other things. This type of stool is often used at spas and salons to hold items such as tissues, lotions, washcloths, towels, and other items that are needed to create a calm and relaxing environment for patrons and visitors of the business.

Bathroom Caddies – Bathroom caddies help keep shampoo, conditioner, body soap, and other personal care items organized in the shower. The most popular type of caddy hangs over the top of the showerhead, making the items kept in it easier to access from standing level.

Teak Bathroom Storage – Bathroom storage made of teak is available in multiple configurations. Standing cabinets serve well as a linen closet. Large storage cabinets can hold a large number of items. Tower cabinets offer numerous tiers of shelf space for homeowners.

Floor mats – Floor mats are a more hygienic approach to bathroom floors. Unlike carpet mats that absorb and create an ideal environment for bacteria to grow, teak mats do not absorb moisture and repel bacteria and mildew.

All of these items are relatively affordable items to add to your bathroom or other areas of your home. In some cases, you might even consider implementing some of these furniture pieces into other areas of your home.

For instance, a bench or stool could be an ideal addition to your entryway or mudroom. By giving your kids – and your not so little kids – a place to sit and remove their shoes, you can reap the benefit of clean floors in the rest of your home.
