heated floor under engineered hardwood?


Is there anyone with experience on putting engineered wood flooring in a bathroom - and with heated flooring underneath?? Thinking of running my wood right through into the bathroom from the new bedroom addition.

Any comments would be appreciated.

I wouldn't suggest any wood type in the bath area and I think I won't be alone in my opinion on this.
You can get tile that looks like wood that will work especially for heated floor.

Ageed no form of wood would be a good idea.

My grandmother put wood floors in her bathrooms and my brothers and sister like to screech "wipe up the floor after you take a shower" when we want to remember her.

Thanks for the opinions, but it's just me here and would be controlled as far a "water" on the floor.........no different then my wood floors in my kitchen and when the mop bucket is accidentally tipped, you just wipe it up quickly........never had damage in all the homes I've had with wood in the kitchen. Still undecided, but might end up going with ceramic as may put a wet steam in the shower and then it would be too much humidity for the wood.............

Ask the manufacturer before you put engineered over in-floor heat. See what they think.

I don't care what any of these manufacturers say about it, this type of flooring is NOT good for wet areas. I learned the hard way.
Use a good ceramic or something like that if you want to heat the floor. I know that works.
