Choosing Floors And Countertops For A Bathroom

Nov 30, 2007
Today we are trying more to give our bathrooms as much attention in terms of style and decoration as any other rooms in our house. Since we spend so much of our time in a bathroom this really only makes good sense. Who wants to relax and take a long, hot soak in a bathroom that is not too good to look at? It can really ruin the mood. Relaxing in a spa like atmosphere is really what the new master bathrooms are all about. They are designed to be a retreat from the rest of the world. We enjoy the privacy and rest we can get there.

When we are designing these magnificent bathrooms or any bathroom for that matter, there are some choices that we make that will have to be good ones. Things like the color of our bathtub, sink, shower, and toilet need to be chosen carefully because we will probably have to look at them for a long time. The bathroom floor and the countertops are things that we do not plan to have to change again for years either. The floors and countertops we choose should be something that we love to see when we walk into the bathroom. They should have a look that will appeal to us for years to come.

One of the most popular choices for flooring and countertops in the bathrooms being designed today is natural stone or beautiful tiles. You might think of natural stone colors being limited to choices like grey or brown tints, but that is far from true. Marble, granite, travertine, Jerusalem stone and so many others can be purchased in many colors and a variety of natural patterns. They can be speckled like some types of granite, or they can have swirls and veins of different colors like marble. They can be found in grey, gold, green, burgundy, blacks, browns, and a variety of neutral shades.

Apart from the many color choices of natural stone and tiles, the durability of these surfaces is really great. Their shining beauty will last for years with proper care. While it is true that much of the natural stone products can be expensive, they are well worth the investment as far as adding value to your homes goes. In the future if you plan to sell your home, natural stone elements are a very good selling point.
