Wood bathroom furniture: is it a good idea?

Next month I will do up my bathroom and I also would like some new bathroom vanities. At the moment I'm thinking of buying light oak furniture since I like wood furniture for baths since my house is rustic but I'm afraid that wood in a wet room like the bathroom gets easily damaged. What do you think about it? Do you think it will be too expensive?

Oak bathroom furniture doesn't require a particular maintenance since it is a very hard wood that doesn't suffer wet much. That's why it is the perfect material for bathrooms. Anyway it's wood so some tips to protect it against moisture will make the life of your furniture longer: always dry the excess water especially on the sink cabinet, and every now and then apply some beeswax which is natural and gentle. Water mixed to vinegar prevent moisture from entering the wood. And shall the wood change colour, apply a coat of mineral oil.

My bathroom furniture is made of oak and I love it because it is completely ecological. Oak is perfect for baths since it gives light to the room and it is versatile so that it can be easily adapted to other coloured accessories. In the picture you can see how nice it is in a bathroom with light blue walls! F

or my bathroom I've bought a vanity set with a long vertical mirror, a very useful bench where I can put my clothes and all my stuff when I have a shower (small stools are quite useless for me) and a marvellous bathroom cabinet with doors and shelved interiors. You can find quite cheap but good quality bathroom furniture in Ikea.

I would like to furnish my bathroom with floating furniture because cleaning the floor then is much easier. I was thinking of buying some light oak floating bathroom units but after a long research I've changed my mind because floating units are already expensive themselves, even more if made of oak. I know it is very durable and resistant but quotations were too high. I was not looking for a cheap bathroom but those prices were not affordable. So, I think I will look for some cheaper timbers than oak, I don't know… maybe pine. It's not the same but...
