When it comes to adding a touch of elegance to a home’s interior, veneered bathrooms can make quite an impact. Whether used as panelling for bathrooms, or to create eye-catching pieces of bathroom furniture, natural wood veneers are considered the high-end choice for homes of distinction.
How can wood veneers be used in a bathroom?
The beauty of wood veneers lies in their versatility. Not only can they be used as wall and bath panelling to create a period look, they can also be applied to bathroom furniture, such as vanity units, pedestal cabinets, cistern surrounds and storage, as well as doors. Whether you opt for a classical or contemporary look is entirely up to you.
What’s more, wood veneers can also be crafted into wood panelling that is used to hide unsightly pipework in a bathroom.
Are wood veneers suitable for bathrooms?
Many people ask the question, can wood veneers be used safely in a bathroom? It is a good question, as the bathroom is obviously one of the most humid rooms in the home.
However, providing the veneers are applied to a waterproof substrate using a strong, purpose-designed adhesive, there should not be any issue at all in terms of the effects of moisture and humidity when used in a family, ensuite or Jack and Jill bathroom. However, for wet rooms, the use of wood veneers is not generally recommended.

Popular veneer species for bathrooms
Oak, maple and walnut veneers in their various forms tend to be in highest demand for veneered bathrooms.
Clustered oak for example creates a very eye-catching effect, a true focal point for veneered bathrooms. American quarter cut oak, with its beautiful fine grain, has its own endearing charm and works well for the more modern-designed bathroom.
Satin walnut and black American walnut also work beautifully for veneered bathrooms, producing a sophisticated finish.
There is also the option to blend natural wood veneers with solid wood. This can work particularly well with the likes of oak and maple, achieving striking results that are much admired.
You are welcome to ask our experts for tailored advice on selecting and blending veneer species to create the precise effects that you or your client may be looking to achieve.
