Most Common Bathroom Remodeling Materials

It is imperative for you to have a well-thought-out plan for your bathroom renovation before you start shopping for vanities, countertops, and fixtures. You should be in tune with your requirements and understand the purpose of the bathroom remodeling project. In addition to that, you should also have a clear vision of what your new bathroom will look like. When selecting fixtures and materials for plumbing, cabinets, tubs, showers, sinks, glass windows, flooring, and lighting, we would recommend you to visit specialty design showrooms. Doing so can help you get a real feel for what´s available in the market. You can also speak to the designer experts there about your ideas to have a better plan for your remodeling project.

Anyway, without straying away from the topic any further, here are some of the most common bathroom remodel materials.

  • Flooring

The flooring is the foundation of your bathroom remodeling project. You should only opt to replace or update your floor and subfloor if it is in poor condition. If you intend to rearrange your floor plan, you will require new flooring. There are numerous flooring options available on the market today. Regardless of your choice, you must at the bare minimum ensure that the flooring is suitable for wet areas. Many often opt for tiles as a safe flooring option in bathrooms. Floor tiles, these days, come in a variety of designs and shapes and even mimic natural store. Ceramic tile floors, Travertine, Hardwood floors etc. are all the rage these days. You can also opt to install heated floors.

  • Cabinets

You have a litany of options when it comes to selecting cabinetry for your bathroom. The variety of wood species, door styles, finishes, and combinations are almost limitless. You should know that sleek, veneer surface cabinets can help make an outdated bath modern and sleek instantly; in addition to that they are also easier to maintain than traditional cabinets with decorative ridges that accumulate dirt and dust. Cabinets are getting taller with each passing day to accommodate extra storage. Cabinets are also getting legs and open shelves where rolled towels, pretty bottles, and other items can be stored.  

  • Accessories

Accessories such as shower heads, cabinet door & drawer knobs or pulls, toilet paper holders, light fixtures, faucets, mirrors, accent pieces and more do add to the charm of the bathroom. The aforementioned final details help showcase your personality. Now, many of the items come in “suites” which can be described as coordinating sets where the style of all the pieces have a similar feel and look. Fortunately, you can also opt to go with different styles in all the same finish.  

  • Toilets

Not all toilets are created equal. There are tall ones and short ones, round ones and elongated ones, fancy and plain, insulated tanks, and some with more powerful water capacity. You can also opt to get yourself a high-tech smart toilet that has features such as automatic lid openers and slow close features, built-in deodorizers, seat warmers, and adjustable air-dryer etc.
