When beginning the remodeling and design process for your bathroom, it is important that you research the different materials you’re considering using throughout the space. Two commonly used materials for shower walls and floors are tile and LuxStone products, and each has pros and cons.
Tile is commonly known to be used in showers and is one of the most popular materials chosen. It is easily customizable and comes in a variety of shapes and colors, so you are likely to get exactly what you want out of your tile design. These materials are also cheaper and more cost-efficient than LuxStone materials. However, it provides a lot of space for soap scum and mildew to rest, so it needs to be thoroughly cleaned regularly to prevent dirt buildup. The installation process for tiles can be lengthy, and tiles can be prone to scratches and stains.
LuxStone provides a nonporous finish, so it won’t retain stains or grime. LuxStone walls are made of durable stone, meaning they will likely last longer than other materials, such as ceramic tile. LuxStone provides many colors and pattern options like tile, so you’ll probably get the look you want for your shower or bathroom. There is also no grout necessary with LuxStone, which means your shower won’t need nearly as much upkeep. Installing LuxStone is much quicker than other materials and isn’t nearly as messy. Some LuxStone products may not look up to date and may look old school compared to new tile designs that are continuing to come out, and they likely aren’t as eco-friendly as other materials.
Overall, both tile and LuxStone have different benefits and drawbacks for bathroom use. If you’re looking for a cheaper option for more customization options, you’ll likely opt for tile in your shower. On the other hand, if you don’t mind spending more and are looking for a low-maintenance and easy-to-install option, you’re likely to choose a LuxStone product.
