As you begin your home remodeling project, there are several items you will need to work with your contractor to make decisions about, namely materials. There is a cornucopia of material options for both kitchens and bathrooms, and it helps to narrow down your top choices to streamline the remodeling process. With so many options available, use these tips to help you select the right materials for your home remodel.
1. Style and Design: Depending on the style you are going for in your home, it will greatly change which type of material you choose for your kitchen or bathroom. If you are looking for a modern, clean look, quartz or concrete countertops are a great option, while if you are looking for a traditional farmhouse design, you may want to consider granite or butcher’s block for your countertops.
2. Durability and Maintenance: Every type of material comes with its own benefits and downsides, so it is important to select a material that works with your needs and level of maintenance you are willing to put towards the surface. If you want a low maintenance flooring option, for example, you may select tile over hardwood which requires regular maintenance.
3. Price: The cost of building materials varies greatly, from options that are extremely cost-effective to those that are quite pricey. Once you have identified your budget, your contractor can help you determine which materials fit within that budget, while still giving you the look you want in your home remodel.
It is important to remember that looking at samples can go a long way in making the material selections for your project. Ask your contractor to obtain samples of all the materials you are considering so that you can view them in your home and get an idea of how they will look once installed.
