Fearnaut and I have a small--REALLY small--half bath tucked under the staircase in our home. For some unknown reason our home's previous owners carpeted this half bath...and we all know that toilets and carpet don't mix. :nono:
There's a sign on the door to the bath that says "head" and we have a nautical-ish decor thing going on in the bathroom.
Suggestions, please, for mimicing a teak and holly sole on this bathroom floor? Thanks!
How bout teak and holly laminated plywood?

They make an imitation teak also that looks good and would probably be more durable. It is almost like rubber

Great idea for a bathroom. Would be great if you had a foot pedal manual flash jabsco head, or a mascerator pump. I like the teak and holly idea.

Been looking to do teak and holy sole in the head on the boat, so I've been keeping my eye open. Last year I saw Ocean was using a synthetic type that I thought was real when I first saw it, and still looked real after the salesman told me it wasn't. I think it was amesco? It was in their brochure, but I can't locate it now. If you surf around the Ocean website, you may be able to find it.
I've looked into the laminated plywood. My concerns with it is the thickness, or lack there of, of the veneer facing and, having done laminated flooring, getting the floor enough level so you don't end up with small gaps or bridges between the floor and the plywood.

Based on the recent "P" threads here I got the feeling that most of the rugged THT'ers had abandoned indoor plumbing altogether for the great ourdoors.

No holly, but it looks like an easy install. ;?

$45.00 for a lineal foot (6' wide by 1') PlasTeak&Holly
I can personally vouch for TT Custom Marine, Travis did the PlasDeck (similar to FlexiTeak) on my cruiser.
