How to Pick Materials for Your Next Bathroom Remodel

Last Updated on January 25, 2023

You have dreamed of transforming your bathroom into your very own oasis. And it is finally time to turn that dream into reality! Bathroom remodels are fun. And, with just a handful of changes, you can make a spectacular splash. However, perhaps your dream bathroom requires a complete overhaul. So, while you have a picture in your mind of what you want the finished product to look like, now you need to decide what materials to use.

We understand that the sheer volume of options available on the market can feel a little overwhelming. We wanted to remove the guesswork, make your life easier, and help you finish your dream bathroom faster. So, we pulled together a few tips on how to pick materials for your bathroom remodel.

Countertops and Vanities
All bathroom countertops take a beating. They are used frequently and are subject to regular exposure to moisture. You want a material that will not only accomplish your aesthetic goals but will also offer durability. Thankfully, you can accomplish both with vanity countertops from Granite and TREND Transformations.

Thanks to our exclusive partnership with Microban®, our etherium® By E-Stone surfaces stay cleaner for longer and actively reduce the growth of bacteria 24/7. Additionally, our ForeverSeal® technology allows us to offer countertops that are heat, scratch, stain, and odor resistant. They are also non-porous and mold/mildew-resistant. You can breathe easy knowing that your investment will last for many years to come. Choose from marble, quartz, granite, recycled glass, travertine, or concrete.

And what’s even better is that all of our surfaces are low-maintenance and easy to clean. That way, you can spend less time scrubbing the bathroom and more time enjoying it!

Flooring
Updating your floor may not have crossed your mind when you planned your bathroom remodel. Granite and TREND Transformations make the process easy. Plus, we offer a full suite of products that withstand heavy foot traffic.

Choose a surface that is tough enough to hold up to a regular beating and perhaps an occasional object being dropped on it. Don’t forget to consider the impact moisture can have on your floors. Those wood floors look lovely, but they will quickly warp and buckle with excessive moisture. Instead, opt for something like our etherium® By E-Stone slabs.

Tub and Shower Surrounds
Adding a tub or shower surround is a wonderful choice. Having said that, one should keep in mind that not all materials are equally up for the job. These areas get consistent exposure to water. So you want to choose something that will stand the test of time and make cleaning a breeze.

Our mosaic tiles collection and etherium® By E-Stone slabs are mold- and mildew-resistant and easy to clean.
