Wood Paneling in the Bathroom

Wood Paneling in the Bathroom

Wood paneling adds an organic element to otherwise spare, modern spaces; here are five noteworthy bathrooms.

Above: Plywood is used to create an appealing camp-style bath in Japan by mA-style Architects via Design Boom. For more ideas, see The Unexpected Appeal of Plywood.

Above: A wood-paneled bath in Austin, Texas, via AT.

Above: A bathroom designed by MW/Works Architecture & Design. See the entire space in A Coastal Retreat in the Pacific Northwest.

Above: MR Architecture designed this minimal NYC bath.

Above: Wool paneled walls made of reclaimed long leaf pine sealed with oil. See more of this home in the post In Austin, a Woodworker Takes Affordable Creativity to New Heights.

Wood paneling looks good but i think tiles would be perfect for bathroom.

I would prefer tiles I think.

All that I can think of is how hard it would be to clean.

Wooden tiles? :-)

i've very recently ripped out the bathroom partition wall and all the fixtures/fittings and replaced with new. we've tiled [looks like a marble effect] around the bath and then will be wallpapering next weekend. it's got little tiles with different shades of blue tiles on a white background of tiles, so it's not too blue and not totally plain. we've had vinyl on the floor, a very small different shades of green tile effect with a silver type color 'grout'. we only used plywood to lay over the floorboards for the vinyl and to build the shelf under the bath. and we'll be making the bath panel from it. but possibly wallpaper it over. the only wood i like in bathrooms is that duck board type in white, even though i don't particularly like white for anywhere else!

Would rather have tile or tumbled stone, these are not appealing to me.
