Kahrs hardwood (oak) floating floor - Anyone ever installed it in a bathroom??

I have installed it throughout my house, even in laundry room, now plan to put it in my small bathroom. Anyone done it? How about going around the toilet??

When we bought our house 5 years ago, we saw that the previous owner had put an engineered floor in the downstairs/lower level bathroom (below grade on a concrete slab). The floor was only two years old and an unsightly wreck - water stains, water damage, warped boards.
I have to agree with Dave...wood and bathrooms/kitchens don't mix. I'd be concerned about a floating floor because of moisture infiltration under the boards. As for replacing ceramic tiles, with a properly preparred substrate it'll be decades before you replace a good quality tile if it's installed properly. Best of luck with it.

I would not even consider putting any wood flooring product in a bathroom. For one you would be asking for trouble with the close flange and water closet connection. Water and wood don't mix even the laminate floor has a wood core. Then there is the dribble factor I don't think I need to explain that. I even think allot of these people doing wood kitchen floors are asking for trouble. Lets be honest a bathroom is not the most sanitary place and requires constant cleaning.

Well, I've already ordered the floor, so it is going in. I have istalled it in the kitchen and laundry room, and this product looks great with no problems. Kahrs even says it can be done in bathrooms, although they admit it's not the greatest application for it, but it's a really small bathroom, so I figure if a board gets ruined eventually, I can just pop it out and snap a new one in place. It's a lot easier than trying to replace a ceramic tile
Kahrs says humidity in the bathrooom can cause expansion and contraction, and for that reason they say be careful, but I have it in a very humid laundry room, and it has caused no problems. At least in one year.
