6 Things to Consider When Planning a Bathroom Remodel

Selecting the right countertop is the most important choice you’ll have to make when you’re remodeling your bathroom. While the countertops need to be functional, they also need to be aesthetically pleasing, as they are the first thing that people see when they enter the room. Luckily, you have a wide range of material options to choose from: everything from easy-maintenance stainless steel to marble and semi-precious stone or even Eco-friendly recycled materials.

Why you should consider remodeling your bathroom:

1. Update an old space:

Many people are hesitant to do a remodel because they’re worried that it might end up being expensive and time-consuming. However, because a bathroom is a relatively small space, small changes can make a big impact in your home value and how much you enjoy your space.

2. Health and safety issues:

An old and cracked countertop is more than just an eyesore; if it’s no longer waterproof then moisture can get under the top and lead to mold or potentially even rot the cabinetry or flooring.

How to choose the right style and material of countertop:

3. Pick a material that matches you décor and needs:

Marble is a great choice for a high-end bathroom remodel. Choosing marble will give your space a luxurious feel and will look beautiful for years to come. Metals like copper or stainless steel are also very popular because they can be easily cleaned and create a stylish and modern look. If you prefer something a little more natural and classic, consider quartz, limestone or granite.

4. Create a bold focal point:

One way to create a big style impact in a bathroom is to have a neutral color scheme for the walls and flooring and contrast it with a statement-making countertop. A countertop inlaid with semi-precious stones like quarts, agate, or amethyst is not only eye-catching but is also very durable and will be uniquely customized to each space.

Maintenance and care:

5. Choose high-quality materials:

Bathroom counters get a lot of use and require constant cleaning. Choosing the right countertop material could make the difference between having decades of easy use or having to replace cheap and worn-out counters every few years.

  • Our kitchen looks awesome!

    “I wanted to tell you what a wonderful experience Mike and I had with putting in our granite counters last week. We had never done a make-over before, so when my husband suggested putting in granite counters I groaned.  Little did I know at the time how smooth and painless everyone at Premier Surfaces would make it. Every encounter was extremely professional. Our kitchen looks awesome and I really appreciate having the opportunity to work with such a great group of people. If we ever decide to do anything like that in the future we will use definitely use Premier Surfaces.”

  • Done right the FIRST time!

    “I walked in on a Friday, and was surprised to see just how busy they were — always a good sign of how a business is doing. In the process of waiting my turn, a number of people asked if I had been assisted yet. Customer service isn’t something you get in most places these days. I walked around their facility and really got a different feel compared to how I felt at other granite shops. The selection was great, everyone was friendly, and they took the time to teach me about the differences in quality for all of the chioces of a fabricator out there. The professionalism, friendly and incredibly knowledgable staff set them apart from the other “competitors”. My kitchen looks beautiful and the investment in my home was well worth it to have it completed correctly THE FIRST TIME. I will be upgrading a few bathrooms in the future and can’t think of any other granite fabricator I’d rather use.”
