Wood Grain Vinyl Planks in Bath, OK?

I was considering installing wood grain vinyl planks in the bath. Exist. subfloor is 3/8" acx over 1x6 planking (raised foundation). Is there a brand that performs well in a moist area? Would there be a problem with moisture leaking through the joints between the vinyl planks?

Moisture can be a problem in a bath nomatter what type of flooring is used.

Vinyl planks will be slippery when wet!!

The vinyl planks hold up well and are very DIYer friendly. If all the instructions are followed it will last for years.

They work excellent in bathrooms.

Very DIY friendly.


Labor, time wise, compares to a gluedown engineered hardwood.
