There is a trend to place teak flooring into the shower. What is the best way to accomplish this with minimal problems? Is there an advantage to having teak flooring in a shower, or is it just not a great idea no matter what type of wood is used to place it into a shower?
The teak wood is not the actual floor of the shower it is just a layer on top of the waterproof substrait or tile. There is no wood that has properties to form a shower subfloor - it holds too much water, expands and contracts too much, and rots. Not to mention sanitary issues.
So can you put teak in a shower. Sure. You can stand on top of whatever you want as long as the underneath part is waterproof and drains. However you are just adding another (major) thing to clean.
