CABINET COLOR

Cabinet color is the most important part of the decision. Bathroom vanity cabinets come in colors that range from light to dark shades. Find a color that will work best in your bathroom.

What are the most popular bathroom vanity colors?

White, espresso and gray are the most popular bathroom vanity cabinet colors.

HARDWARE

Don’t forget knobs change the way how vanities look. Most of the cabinets come with knobs already assembled but you can change them easily.

WOOD TYPE

What kind of wood is used for bathroom vanity?

Bathroom cabinets and vanities are typically made from these materials: Plywood, medium-density fiberboard (MDF) or solid wood. 

What is MDF Wood?

MDF (medium density fiberboard) is an engineered wood made from composite wood pieces and fibers, which are held together with either a wax or resin adhesive. A thin decorative veneer layer is then stretched around the composite plank of wood. 

MDF is one of the most economical materials in cabinet construction, it can be used in the bathroom vanity cabinets. It’s hard to determine the quality of the MDF; if it’s well made it will be durable even in humid bathroom conditions.

Solid Wood Bathroom Vanities

“Solid wood” is a term for two different styles of wood: Standard solid wood (all natural real wood), and solid hardwood plywood. 

Solid hardwood plywood is the most durable wood material for bathroom vanity cabinets. It is made from woods like oak, cherry, and maple. 

Natural solid wood(all natural real wood) tend to shrink and expand as humidity changes, which can cause cracks in the painted or veneered finish of your cabinets, and in some cases, this may lead to warping. Natural solid wood must be dried properly. 

Solid Wood Vs Solid Hardwood

Solid hardwood is a totally different material from natural wood. It is a manufactured wood that uses pure fine wood from a single natural wood source, which allows the wood to bend and expand in different humid conditions, but will always goes back to its original shape. That’s why no cracking or warping occurs.

IMPORTANT TIP:  Regardless of which material your vanity is made with, be sure you have a proper bathroom exhaust fan to remove moisture from the bathroom.

SINK ON TOP VS UNDER MOUNT

An under-mount sink, mounts underneath the counter, which is very common. A top vessel sink is not a common choice for bathrooms because the sink itself sits on the counter, takes up space on the counter. 

SINK TYPES 

Bathroom Vanity sinks now come in a range of shapes, such as rectangular, oval and round. Rectangular sink has a more modern look, but a round sink has a more classic or traditional look.

SINK MATERIAL

As you look over vanity sinks, pay attention to the material used in the construction of each sink. Porcelain is the best option because it is easy to maintain, but some may prefer an acrylic sink. There are also sinks made from stainless steel that work well in a contemporary bathroom. And there are glass vessel sinks that sit on top of the counter. 

What’s an acrylic sink?

Acrylic resin is a group of thermoplastic materials that can be used to make extremely clear, very durable product that’s used to make bathroom vanity sinks.

Do bathroom sinks need an overflow?

The sink overflow is a built-in feature that prevents accidental overflow of the sink and to help the sink basin drain faster.

What is a good size for a bathroom sink?

There is no standard size for a bath sink. Most round sinks are 16 to 20 inches in diameter, while most rectangular sinks are 19 to 24 inches wide and 16 to 23 inches front to back.

PRICING

While comparing bathroom vanity prices, find out if there are any hidden fees such as shipping and handling. Don’t forget, not every vanity is made the same way. They might look same but quality of the vanity might not be the same.

Marble Tiles: Marble is a natural stone. They are beautiful and always unique. Each piece of marble surface is different that gives it the unique appearance wherever it is installed. 

Marble also can be used in any part of the house, including kitchens, bathrooms, living rooms, dining rooms and foyers. Marble tile can be installed on the floor or on the walls.

What are the types of natural stones ?

Granite, Marble, Travertine, Limestone, Slate, and Onyx

Granite is a hard rock that is found in various forms throughout the earth. Its durability and variety of colors make it the perfect material for many applications including kitchens, bathrooms, fireplaces, floors and walls. Granite is the most popular type of stone used for kitchen countertops.

Marbleis a crystallized stone formed in nature. It has beautiful natural colors and its high polish look of elegance and prosperity like no other material.

Travertine is a form of limestone deposited by mineral springs. The main colors are beige, brown, cream, gold and some multicolor rusty varieties.  

Limestone is a sedimentary stone comprised primarily of calcium deposits.  Although it’s a softer material than marble or granite, it has been used indoors and outdoors throughout the history of mankind to create some of the world’s most famous architecture.

Slate is a dense, metamorphic rock produced by the compression of various sediments such as clay and shale.  Suitable for indoor or outdoor use, it is available in a smooth or cleft finish.

Onyx is a fine grained form of quartz with bands of different colors.  It is translucent, creating a spectacular effect when backlit.  Available in a variety of colors like yellow and green.  

What are the different stone finishes?

The surface of natural stone may be finished in a wide variety of ways.The most popular stone finishes are polished, honed and tumbled.

Polished:A polished finish has a highly reflective, shiny surface, which will display the stone’s colors as well as the character. The texture is very smooth and the full color, depth, and crystal structure is visible with a polished finish. 

Honed (Matte):Honing process takes the shininess and reflective qualities that polished marble has. Instead, it has a more satin-feel, smooth touch.

Tumbled:Tiles are placed into a container along with rocks, water and sand. They are literally tumbled over and over while the sand, rocks and water wear down their edges and soften their finish. Tumbled tiles will have a soft, smooth and worn look to them. 

Which tiles are less slippery?

  • Honed finish tiles
  • Tumbled finish tiles 
  • Mosaics (mosaics has grout lines that makes floors non-slippery)
  • Pebbled tiles

Please note whatever you install on bathroom floor if there’s water on it, it will be slippery. That’s why most bathrooms have floor mats where you step from shower.

NATURAL STONE CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE 

What if I spill something on natural stone?  

Once liquids spill on the surface of a natural stone, wipe it off immediately with cloth.  

How do I clean natural stone?

To clean use regular soap, never use household detergent with bleach because it will seep through the surface and darken its color. Also, there are natural stone cleaners that you can use. 

Do I have to seal natural stone?  

Yes, natural stone needs to be sealed very 6 months to a year. This process will protect natural stone from absorbing any liquids. Don’t worry sealing is not a hard process, you can do it yourself. Natural stone sealers are sold in bottles with sprays. Just spray the sealer and wipe it off with a cloth. 

How do I keep Natural Stone from staining?

Sealing the natural stone will protect it from staining. 

How do I get rid off the stain from natural stone?  

Most surfacestains can be removed by cleaning with an appropriate cleaning product. If you can’t remove the stain yourself, you might want to call a professional to do the job for you. 

How do I determine if a tile is for wall or floor ?

Tile manufacturers and retailer sites provide a great deal of information to help you determine if tile is for wall or floor. Check under product specifications section in product detail. There are also products categories where wall tilesand flooring tilesare separately listed.

Which tile is recommended for bathroom floors?

Both natural stone tiles and porcelain tiles can be used for bathroom floor. (Some porcelain tiles are specifically for walls) One strict rule is do not use wall tiles on the floor. 

How much is the tile installation?

We do not offer installation services, but we can always recommend an insured installer that can do the job for you. It’s always best to ask a professional to give you price on your tiling projects because there are many factors involved:

Condition of the existing floor: Does it require the existing floor to be removed? In any floor tiling project, the floor must be clean, leveled and sturdy enough to support of the weight of tile.

Tiles cannot be installed directly onto a wooden floor; cement backer boards might need to be installed at a cost of $4 to $7per square foot.

Porcelain tiles cost between $5 and $10 per square foot for installation.

Marble tile is typically more expensive, installation cost between $7 and $12 per square foot. These tiles are fragile, they easily break so plan to buy at least 10% more than needed. 

Average total costs to be between $9 and $17 dollars per square foot installed.

Regardless of the tile choice, the shape of the floor, pattern or complexity of the design, and the size of the tiles will determine installation cost. Projects that require more detailed work or cutting of the tile will be more expensive. If the installation requires detailed work, expect costs to be 15% – 20% more.

Tips on Marble Tile Installation: Marble tiles can be difficult to match. Tiles should be laid out on your floor before installation to make sure you are satisfied with the look and overall design. Experts suggest mixing tiles from different boxes to achieve a more balanced look.


Kitchen Countertop Choices

If you are planning to remodel your kitchen or replace your kitchen countertops, take a look at some of the choices before you make a choice.

Marble

Marble is an exquisitely luxurious material for making kitchen countertops. It is durable and scratch  resistant, making it a fine choice for all styles of kitchens.

Granite

Granite is recognized for its diamond hard durability. It is highly resistant to heat, stains and scratches and requires no sealing. Granite also offers fine resistance against molds.

Quartz

Quartz countertops are essentially formed with 93% of crushed quartz, combined with plastic resins and color pigments. It is preferred due to its high availability in a range of colours. Quartz countertops are also hygienic.

Quartz

Concrete kitchen countertops render an industrial look to kitchens. They are highly versatile and available in a variety of colors. Concrete can be poured to make the countertops, or the countertops can be created off-site first before they are installed. 

Stainless Steel

Stainless steel countertops are used in a number of kitchens styled on traditional or contemporary lines. The way they match nicely with kitchen appliances adds to the appeal. The ideal spots for the countertops are around cooktops.L

Laminate

Laminate countertops are budget friendly and are much preferred for the retro ambience that they create. The installation is quick and the material is durable, but it should preferably be safeguarded against heat.

Soapstone

Soapstone countertops make a preferable choice if you want the countertops to look unique. The material is durable an exhibits a high chemical resistance. Countertops made from soapstone also have a high temperature resistance and do not stain or scorch easily. Upon sealing, the countertops display a look which is darker and richer.

Acrylic

Acrylic countertops are durable and fit in seamlessly well in the kitchen to easily accommodate the sink as well. They resist wear and tear for years at a stretch and have a high resistance against heat, moisture, sunlight and stains. Light buffing is often all it takes to repair them.

Ceramic Tile

Ceramic tile countertops are high on affordability and durability, and can be made of porcelain, ceramic or stone. They are available in many designs, and also make a nice DIY project.

Custom Kitchen Countertops

Granite, quartz and marble, all form a preferred material for making kitchen countertops and add a naturally neat and stylish look to a kitchen. There are ways in which these all three countertops are similar.

Granite, just like marble is a natural stone which is mined, making every single slab unique. It is available in a variety of colors. Coloration of both marble and granite may not be consistent but that’s what makes marble and granite countertops unique and beautiful.

Unlike the two, quartz is not a natural material but a stone that is engineered. Slab is made from resin and pigment which binds the crushed quartz together. It’s very durable, easy to maintain and available in many different colors which makes it an excellent choice for countertop. 

Let’s take a look at how the three compare against each other.

Durability

Each of the three countertops is exceedingly durable and heat resistant. They last a life time with proper care.

Toughness

Quartz is the toughest substance among the three, followed by granite and then marble.

Staining

Granite and marble are porous and it is possible for spilled liquids to seep into the stone and make a stain. For liquids of an acidic nature, such as wine or juice, marble is more vulnerable.

Quartz is almost completely non-porous, so it doesn’t stain easily or become a breeding ground for bacteria. This also makes the countertop easier to clean.

Unique look

With each slab of marble and granite being unique, it is very unlikely that someone else would have the same counters as you. Quartz slabs are engineered and not as unique as the other two.

Variety

While each slab is unique, marble and granite have a lot to offer in terms of colours and variety. But quartz has a nearly infinite variety to offer with unique pigments and colour. It is also possible to have a designer countertop made from quartz.

Pricing

For kitchen countertops, granite, marble and quartz are all priced towards the higher side as compared to rest of the variants. Quartz is most affordable among the three but may not offer the much coveted natural look and ambience. Granite is stylish and easier to maintain as compared to marble, but marble just might be the preferred choice if you adore the look. Pricing for granite or marble will vary depending on the color you prefer.
