The answer to your question is yes, parquet laminate flooring tiles can be used in bathrooms to recreate either the solid oak hardwood flooring look or even the look of tiles, but it is important that you use water resistant laminate flooring.

Why choose laminate flooring for the bathroom?
Maybe you just don’t like the look of tiles for your brand new bath or you find the cost and hassle of installing them too much, whatever it is, laminate can be a great alternative. Water resistant laminate flooring in bathrooms is a big trend and not just for aesthetic reasons. Laminate is much simpler to maintain and clean than tiles (that grout mould is a real pain!) and also much more durable. Tiles break easily, especially if you drop something heavy – and we all know how slippery things can get in the bathroom! Laminate flooring is more robust and therefore a much safer choice. However, keep in mind that you want your bath floors to last at least until you get fed up with your bathroom furnishings, so choose good quality laminate. Krono Xtreme has a 30 year guarantee, so it is surely the best laminate flooring for bathrooms.
