Your bathroom should be an oasis and reflect your personal style. If you’re looking to remodel your bathroom in 2019, the materials you incorporate can give your space a very different feel. From wood to marble, we take a look at the pros and cons of various building materials.
Marble is a metamorphic rock that’s been used for thousands of years in design and often contains unique veining throughout. On the plus side, marble offers a classic, timeless feel, that brings luxury to any space. Drawbacks of marble can include a higher price point and more work after its installed. Since marble is prone to rust, it does require periodic sealing, however, we think the maintenance is well worth the elegance.
If your remodel is on a budget, tile may be an affordable option for your bathroom makeover. The best part of tile in a bathroom is how durable and resistant to moisture it is, not to mention it’s easy to clean. With so many different colors and patterns to choose from tile can take a small space and make it vibrant and fresh.
If you’re looking to warm up your bathroom or if you want a rustic feel, incorporating wood can be an option. Wood is an underrated material used in bathrooms because of humidity and moisture issues. One solution is to make sure it is properly treated, another is to opt for a porcelain tile that gives the look of wood but is easy to maintain.
