Hardwood in Laundry Room?
We are at the point in our build of making flooring decisions. We have a side entrance to the house accessible from the garage and a 'friends entrance.' This area includes a laundry room, half-bathroom, walk-in pantry and a small office. We were planning on using hardwood in all the areas, but are not sure if the laundry room is a bad idea.
I have never had a washing machine leak, but I know it happens. Would you stick to the wood or go with a ceramic tile, or a travertine that we have in the bathrooms? Cost is not a deciding factor as the square footage is not too large. Anyone use wood in a laundry room, or is it just a bad idea?
