Teak door in the bathroom?

Postby Baht Man » Fri Jun 13, 2014 6:47 pm

As it's used in boat building, would there be any problem using one there?

I'm in need of a slider and can't see using those grey pvc doors, and most alredy have the cutout for the hardware.

Any thoughts??

All my bathroom doors are wood, no problem but make sure they are sealed properly especialy the top and bottoms to avoid moisture ingress. In my old house I had the plywood faced doors and they did not last very long, once the moisture gets into the plywood they quickly deteriorate. :roll:

Like pattaypope said.

You might want to consider louvered doors to help with ventilation. Mine are half louvered and that works well.

Like BKK Bill said consider half louver doors for better ventilation, (I have them on every bathroom) but one thing to consider is make sure you don't to leave the extractor fan running all the time in the bathroom if it is connected to the bedroom as it will suck all the cold air out (thats if you have the AC on). :roll:
