Natural Stone

Both for floors and countertops, natural stone has become a popular choice for bathroom remodelers. It can add a touch of elegance and sophistication, and there are quite a few options in the material itself to accomplish this depending on your budget and your preferences.

Marble, limestone, granite and slate are some of the most common types used in bathrooms, and we can provide you with all kinds of information about each type. Just be aware that natural stone is a significantly more expensive option than vinyl or ceramic tile, but it can also provide your bathroom with an unparalleled luxury feel -- and often has a fantastic impact on your home's property value, with excellent ROI.

Engineered Wood

For those who love the look of hardwood floors in several areas of their home, you might be concerned that the bathroom cannot support this design theme. And with traditional hardwood, you're correct -- due to moisture and other factors, hardwoods are not recommended for bathrooms.

But engineered wood can be an excellent substitute, which allows you to get the look of traditional hardwood in your space without the problems that it would normally cause. Engineered wood is made from plywood with a top layer of finished hardwood attached to it. This means that when water lands on the floor, it won't damage the plywood beneath. This is a great option for a bathroom remodel in terms of both style and durability, and we would love to help you figure out whether it's right for your space.
