If you're intent on using home improvement financing to redo a bathroom in your home, selecting the right materials is key. Choose the elements that will remain durable and promote your taste in interior design.
Here are three materials to use in a bathroom renovation:
1. Soapstone. While this stone has a limited range of colors in comparison to marble or granite, it is a favorite for homeowners looking for a contemporary design and a warmer texture for their countertops.
2. Glass. Glass wall tiles are growing in popularity in modern bathrooms because they provide a vibrant and unique look to the room. In addition, glass tiles are highly water resistant, can be easily cleaned and are durable. The material is being adopted as a green alternative because the glass can be recycled, according to Design Your Interiors.
3. Granite. If you're a big fan of using your hair straightener and leaving it on the countertop to heat up you may want to consider using granite as a countertop material. Granite is heat resistant and will not get damaged from the regular use of the beauty tool.
