Picking the Right Materials For Your Bathroom Renovation

There’s a lot of creativity in bathroom renovations, especially when picking suitable materials. After all, if you change the floors, countertops, or tiles, you should know which materials will meet your standards and which should be left by the wayside.

This guide will familiarize you with some of the most common bathroom renovation materials and the expected prices. We’ll also show how to assess accurate material prices with help from the team at Northshore Renovations and Contracting.

Your Basic Bathroom Construction Materials List

Every bathroom has a few major components that a renovation will address.

Whether you’re prepping for a big refurbishment or gearing up for a mid-sized improvement, you’ll need to consider at least some of the following materials:

  • Flooring: You should choose a flooring set that maximizes your comfort without succumbing to a high-humidity environment. Keep in mind that some flooring options are far pricier than others!
  • Countertops: A solid surface will provide plenty of utility while melding the color palette of your bathroom and household.
  • Cabinets: Custom storage areas keep personal things out of sight without staying out of mind and come with plenty of organizational tools to keep track of hygiene products.
  • Fixtures: Are you a fan of rain shower heads? Would you prefer a hot tub to sit center stage? Now’s the time to decide!
  • Backsplashes: Backsplashes will bring all your design ideas together. Just don’t forget to pick a material that can withstand some abuse!

Now that you know what to expect, let’s dig into the real meat and potatoes: the price tags.
