Getting Ready for a Bathroom Reno

 

With the New Year approaching, I’m starting to make some plans to improve my home. I have mentioned before, I’m not handy and unfortunately I have no idea how to tile a floor myself, but as an interior designer, I select products with great quality, but also affordability and that’s why I celebrate when I find great deals on wholesale tiles.

Let’s face it, we all know that you can spend a lot of money if you aren’t careful when renovating a bathroom,  and if you have a limited budget, you know that wholesale tiles (Read More) can be a smart idea.

I’m planning on renovating our bathroom some time next year. I have done some work around our house this year, but we haven’t done anything as big as a bathroom reno. I am dreaming about a free-stading bath and I’m very tired of our existing tiles.

Before I start with the design, I want to decide if we should invest on natural stone or ceramic tiles. If you asked me as a designer I’d say to choose natural stone, but since we don’t plan to stay here for too long, I’m not completely sure what we should choose. I’m aware that natural stone will hold its value and if chosen correctly it will always look current. But since we probably will move some time in the next couple of years, why not improve the look of our bathroom but in an economical way? Besides, you can get some stunning ceramic tiles these days.

Déjà vu

I’ve posted this picture before, but I can never get tired of this bathroom. Here, the designer used Bianco Carrara & Black Marble in a basketweave pattern.

Possibilities

Classic, chic and feminine. The mosaic work is just incredible.

Hardware

This is one of my favorite looks. Fantastic built-in linen closet.

Mix & Match

I like the idea of mixing different materials to add texture and interest. Grant K. Gibson Interior Design via Haus Design.

Exuding charm!

Cafe Latte

The “cafe latte” effect brings some warmth to bathrooms, but I’m not sure if this is what I’m hoping for my own bathroom.

 Here’s where I need your help. What would you do? Invest in natural stone or go for a beautiful but more affordable ceramic tile?

    If your house is as grand as the ones pictured, then natural stone would be more fitting. But, if you’re like most of us with a more ordinary space, then ceramic tile would be perfectly appropriate, and there’s so much selection. If this isn’t your forever house, and unless you live in a very upscale market, the stone might not be worth the investment. That being said, you can find 12″ x 12″ white Grecian marble floor tile fairly inexpensively at the big box home improvement stores.
