Picking bathroom renovation materials is just as important as picking a style and fixtures for your remodelling. The materials can alter the entire mood of the room, the style, and the feeling you get when you enter that space.
First and foremost, you should have your renovation plan down. By knowing what you are remodelling and what you are purchasing, you minimize the chances of a $10,000 project becoming a $30,000 project. Little details like light fixtures, testing paint colour before purchasing a large quantity, cabinet knobs and tiling can all be planned beforehand. This most definitely includes your bathtubs, bathroom vanities, mirrors and other bathroom accessories.
You should also make sure you have a clear vision of the mood you want to feel when you enter the space. Do you want it to feel bright, open and minimal? Do you want it to feel traditional, with rustic touches? Or maybe you want to go a funkier route and have some more colour incorporated. Materials like marble for flooring and countertops can add a clean, modern look to a bathroom, but depending on the colour and fine-tuning, can also incorporate beautifully into a more traditionally designed space.
Bathroom Renovations Materials and Their Benefits
Stone (marble, granite, limestone) – increases profit value, stays cool, and really easy to clean. Stone materials also last a lifetime – they are an investment that will last you!
Ceramic – comes in a variety of colours, is much cheaper than stone, and comes in a wider variety of colour options and customization options. Ceramic also resists fire and moisture.
Porcelain – Porcelain resists water, and is super easy to maintain. It is very resistant to scratches and can be customized to mimic the look of stone for a cheaper option than the real thing.
Bathrooms are high traffic areas, and are vulnerable to the most dirt and grime, similar to the kitchen. You want moisture-proof materials that are high-traffic-friendly, easy to clean, non-porous and and resistant to dulling and scratching.
