HDF beadboard

I'm looking at putting HDF beadboard on the walls in my bathroom but was concerned about moisture and it swelling. Want to do this project one time lol. Anyone done this before or is there something else can use that is better.

Steven,

It is never a good idea to use any type of compressed wood in a damp location. Always use solid wood. Mill the wood no more than about 4 inches in width. It is best to use tongue and groove so the wood can move without any damage.
