Common Bathroom Remodel Materials
The materials you select for your bathroom remodel influence both the aesthetic appeal and the functionality of the room. Let’s dive into some widely used materials in bathroom remodeling and dissect their pros and cons.
Shower & Tub Materials
Considering the various materials available for showers and tubs makes sure you’ll find the perfect fit for your bathroom remodel in terms of both aesthetics and functionality.
- Pros – Acrylic tubs and showers are lightweight, making installation a breeze. They come in a wide range of shapes and sizes, resist staining, and retain heat well, ensuring a warm bathing experience.
- Cons – Though they’re durable, they can be prone to scratches. However, many scratches can be buffed out. Over time, cheaper acrylics might show wear and lose shine.
- Pros – Fiberglass options are generally budget-friendly and also lightweight. They’re available in a variety of finishes and colors.
- Cons – Fiberglass is less durable than other materials and might wear out faster. It’s also more susceptible to scratches and might not hold heat as well as some alternatives.
- Pros – A classic choice, these tubs are made by coating steel with porcelain enamel. They’re resistant to most common chemicals, offer a glossy finish, and are fairly lightweight.
- Cons – Though they’re durable, they can chip, revealing the steel beneath, which can then rust. They might not retain heat as well as acrylic or cast iron tubs.
- Pros – Cast iron tubs are built to last. They have a porcelain enamel finish, retain heat excellently, and provide a classic look that many homeowners appreciate.
- Cons – Their significant weight means they might not be suitable for all homes, especially upper-floor bathrooms. They also come with a higher price tag.
- Pros – Made by blending crushed limestone with a polyester resin and then finished with a gel coat. This material gives the appearance of genuine marble without the hefty price tag. It’s smooth, glossy, and can be crafted into various shapes and sizes.
- Cons – The gel coat can get scratched or stained over time, but with proper care, cultured marble showers and tubs can last a long time.
- Pros – Stone resin tubs and showers are a blend of natural stone and resin, giving them a modern matte finish. They retain heat well and are highly durable.
- Cons – They are quite heavy, which can make installation more challenging, and they tend to be pricier than some other options.
- Pros – Marble countertops are renowned for their exquisite look, adding a touch of elegance and luxury to any bathroom. They’re heat-resistant and each slab boasts a unique veining pattern, adding character.
- Cons – However, marble is porous and can be prone to staining, especially by acidic substances. Regular sealing is necessary to maintain its pristine appearance, and it can be relatively pricey.
- Pros – Granite offers a wide variety of color patterns, is resistant to most wear and tear, and brings a natural aesthetic to bathrooms. It’s also quite durable against heat and most chemicals.
- Cons – Like marble, it requires periodic sealing to keep its surface stain-resistant. Also, its heavyweight demands robust support structures.
- Pros – Quartz offers a modern appearance and is non-porous, making it resistant to staining. It’s available in a plethora of designs and requires minimal maintenance.
- Cons – While durable, it isn’t entirely heat-resistant. Extended exposure to high temperatures might damage its surface. Cost-wise, it tends to be on the higher side.
- Pros – Ceramic tiles are waterproof, durable, and available in numerous designs. They’re also cost-effective and relatively easy to install.
- Cons – They can be slippery, especially when wet, although textured options are available. Cold underfoot in winters, they might require radiant underfloor heating in chillier regions.
- Pros – Porcelain tiles are even more durable than ceramic and are excellent at repelling water. They come in both glazed and unglazed variants and can mimic the look of natural stone.
- Cons – They can be a bit more expensive than ceramic tiles. Like ceramic, they can also be cold underfoot.
- Pros – Vinyl flooring is waterproof, cost-effective, and offers comfort underfoot. It’s also available in a vast range of designs and is relatively easy to install.
- Cons – While durable, it’s not as long-lasting as tile. It can also get dented by sharp objects.
- Pros – Solid wood cabinets are robust and can withstand the humid environment of a bathroom. They offer a natural and timeless look.
- Cons – They tend to be more expensive. Fluctuations in humidity can lead to warping over time, so regular maintenance is vital.
- Pros – Plywood cabinets are resistant to moisture and provide a sturdy base for veneers, laminates, or paints. They’re also less prone to warping compared to solid wood.
- Cons – The edges might need finishing or banding, and they might not offer the same aesthetic appeal as solid wood.
- Pros – Particleboard is a cost-effective option. When sealed properly, it can resist moisture, making it suitable for bathroom cabinetry.
- Cons – It can swell and deteriorate if exposed to water for extended periods. It might not provide the same longevity as other materials.
