Hi bellacat, yes you do need to treat the timber in a bathroom but it can be done relatively easily. We had a Tasmanian Blackwood bathroom when our kids were little and it looked just as good when we sold, 12 years on, as when new (and tbh, I didn’t clean up every little spill immediately). Speak to both a good paint store and someone who works in timber bathrooms for the best how-to advice

if you want an excellent coating for timber in a bathroom or any other wet area, don't go past Osmo. it is the very best. it is an oil but not an oil that needs to be recoated regularly. I have used it numerous times for different projects and I do a recoat every couple of years or longer in some cases.
