The Company You Can Trust
Who doesn’t love to get me-time soaking up a bubble bath in a tub of a high-rise condo with a view of the twinkling city lights through a large floor-to-ceiling picture window? Dreamy, right?
But, here’s a reality check. Not all of us have that luxury. Most of us only get to soak up on weekends, with having 5-minutes to catch a quick shower on the weekdays because of our tight schedule. But, hey, that doesn’t mean that a 5-minute quick shower shouldn’t be luxurious, right! So, here we hope you are happy with your shower/tub scene. But, if you aren’t and are looking for a bathroom makeover or just a quick upgrade of your tub surroundings, at Granex Kitchen, we are here to help.
Why Should You Hire Us To Remodel Your Tub Surrounds?
Whether or not you are living in an almost hundred-year-old house or a newly constructed apartment building, if you are renovating, the bathroom should be the first place to start. The main reason being the water damage. In most bathrooms, the tiles that are used in the walls surrounding the bathtub are prone to water leakage, quickly mold, crack, and deteriorate if water seeps behind them. This damage affects everything, from functionality to the overall look of your whole bathroom. That’s why, bathroom remodeling is messy, tricky, and needs a lot of groundwork, and why you need experts to handle this. We are Granex Kitchen, New York’s most trusted bathroom remodeling experts.
Tiles and Stones Are Your Bathroom’s Best Friends!
Tile—for bathroom flooring and walls—is by far the most popular and practical design technique for today’s modern bathrooms because it doesn’t buckle or warp from constant moisture and is remarkably easy to clean. But there are so many types of tile! How would you find out which one fits the best! Don’t be puzzled. Granex Kitchen is here to help.
Ceramic and Porcelain Tiles
In most bathrooms, ceramic tiles are used. They come in various colors, textures, styles, and sizes. The biggest advantages of ceramic tiles are they are non-porous, easy-to-clean, maintenance-free. However, the biggest drawback of ceramic tile is the topcoat of glaze may crack or chip away over the years.
On the other hand, Porcelain tiles many times imitate real stone. They are priced competitively and are commonly liked due to their durability and attractiveness.
There was a time when only a handful of people could afford glass tiles. However, over the last few years, with the drop in the price of glass tiles, the demand for them has skyrocketed. For modern, contemporary bathrooms, glass tiles are the perfect fit. The glassy effect reflects the light and makes the bathroom look bigger. However, to make the correct choice and do the installation in the right way are the two most important areas you must look into very carefully.
Nothing screams sophistication except stone tiles like Onyx, limestone, marble, quartzite, and travertine. However, some stones like marble are porous and are prone to staining. So, regular cleaning is a must. Though stones instantly give your bathroom the upscale spa or high-end hotel’s vibe, make a note that those commercial places have dedicated cleaning staff. But, at home, you might not have such luxury. So, the choice of stone for your tub surround must be well informed.
