Regardless of whether you have a solid wood floor or an engineered hardwood floor, you'll need to remember one very important thing: Water + Wood = Warp.
Remember this equation when determining where you will install your wood flooring. Bathrooms are not ideal, as tubs and showers spray or even leak excess water onto the floor. You can use engineered hardwood flooring in half-baths, however, as long as you place mats or rugs over the wood near the sink and/or toilet. Kitchens, too, are another fine area for hardwood flooring provided you protect your floors around the sink area with area rugs. Another by the refrigerator is a good idea as well, as fridges can leak on occasion.
