Replacing Floor Boards in Bathroom With new - Whats the Best Method?

Floor boards

Hello all,

I am new to these forums and quite new to DIY, well, DIY in the sense of major projects. We have moved into a big, old house, that needs lots of work. My wife and I are up for getting stuck into projects around the house, and one on my radar currently is the state of our bathroom.

I want exposed floorboards in my bathroom – the existing boards may not be saveable (I’ll post up some pics in the next few days), so I was hoping to get advice on how best to replace the boards with new, smart floor boards.

Is it a relatively easy process? Has anyone done this? Is there any guidance online?

I should say that I am looking to avoid laminate boards if possible. Is this nuts?

Any advice would be great.

Thanks all...

Simply Build It

yes you can replace them, I suggest using a good quality timber, like oak flooring, when fixing them down I would hire a floor nail machine that nails the boards at an angle so that the fixings are hidden it gives a better finish
