Here’s why you should remodel your bathroom with Superior

For many people, remodeling kitchens, bedrooms, living rooms, offices, and even patios and outdoor spaces comes before the bathroom remodel. After all, it’s hard to get excited about a bathroom, right? It’s a bathroom, after all. It’s not like you’ll spend your whole afternoon in there, or hold a party with chip dip served on the vanity. It’s just not a glamorous place to upgrade.

We’d argue that you should give your bathroom a second thought. In this blog post, Superior will lay out the case for you to remodel your bathroom with us. You’ll give your ideas on remodeling another look—and let your design imagination loose.

If you’re ready to get started, get in contact with us.

Superior can turn your outdated bathroom into the bathroom of your dreams.

You should remodel your bathroom

Let’s start with the master bathroom. This is usually not used by guests, but you use it on a daily basis. You shower there and get ready for the day there. That matters. If your bathroom is old and your shower is horribly outdated and your bathtub is uncomfortable, that matters. At one point or another, we’ve all had that shower that smells kind of funky and that you have to jiggle the handle just right to get the hot water going. It’s time to upgrade.

Even if you can’t picture yourself enjoying a remodeled bathroom, consider your home’s value if you were to sell it. Many buyers today are looking for master bathroom upgrades, especially for the shower and vanity. Bathrooms aren’t quite as important to homebuyers as kitchens (we also specialize in kitchen remodels), but a great bathroom can be the tipping point between “We’ll consider it” and “Let’s make an offer on this house.”

The same principals apply to the guest bathroom. You may not go all-out on the shower in this space, but a great guest bathroom remodel is something that guests to your house will be impressed by, while also boosting your home’s value.

We’ve moved to a new location

While our team will certainly miss our old warehouse, this new facility is much bigger, has more space for our showroom, and will allow us to carry a far wider selection of the countertops, cabinets, floors, and fixtures you trust Superior to provide.

Room to grow

Even as one of the largest wholesale suppliers of granite, quartz, flooring, and cabinetry in the Phoenix metro, we were beginning to feel a little cramped in our old place. Our new building is twice the size and contains space for a much larger and more detailed showroom. This is important: our customers need showrooms in order to envision how different flooring styles will look in their home, business, or office. Now, with more overall showroom space, you’ll be able to see a wider variety of our products.

New products in the showroom

On the warehouse side, the extra space allows us to carry a larger inventory, including some new products. We’re now showing and installing quartz slab countertops, along with our original quartz countertops. In the near future, we’ll be bringing in granite slab countertops. Our new space allows us to take on more custom projects. One area of emphasis—in addition to our residential countertop, cabinetry, and flooring products—is on commercial and office products and setups. When you stop by our new location, you’ll find an entire section of our store dedicated to flooring and kitchens for modern workplaces.

Same quality, same low prices

We may have upgraded to a new space, but our approach to business has not changed. We still offer great counters, cabinets, floors, and wall tile at wholesale prices—our larger space means we can continue to directly import products in great quantity from the source instead of going through a middleman.

Four questions to ask yourself when shopping for a bathroom vanity

A bathroom vanity can be a stunning addition to any bathroom in your home, instantly adding an aesthetic appeal and more storage options. But, how do you go about selecting the right bathroom vanity? Besides the usual questions about what kind of granite and cabinetry work you like, Superior Stone and Cabinet recommends that you ask yourself the following questions, and then give us a call to schedule your free in-home estimate.

2d08c6af-df76-41f0-af38-61009d5d06b8Do you want a unique look or a match?

Many customers are seeking a bathroom vanity that not only matches the rest of their bathroom, but fits with the overall aesthetics of the home, including other bathrooms and even the kitchen. For example, the kitchen has white cabinets with a lighter-colored granite finish, so they’ll want their bathrooms to have a similar scheme. However, other customers go the opposite direction: the bathroom vanity is set off from the rest of the home, so why not have it be completely different?

No matter what you decide, Superior has the wide selection that needed to turn your bathroom into a thing of beauty and style.

Will the bathroom vanity help you sell you home?

As with most significant home upgrades, you’re probably at least a little concerned about how the renovation will impact your home’s resale value, should you ever need to move out. Overall, a new bathroom vanity can really help you sell your home as part of an overhauled bathroom. In fact, many homebuyers today specifically look at the master and guest bathrooms to gauge the overall quality of the home. Consider a quality vanity an investment in your home’s future that you can enjoy starting today!

Is this part of a larger bathroom overhaul?

Whether your new vanity is a one-off or if it’s only the start of a larger project, let Superior Stone and Cabinet know, and we can provide you with expert, experienced advice to help you decide and envision how it all fits together. This process includes looking at the type of tile your bathroom might need. It all starts with our free in-home estimate, which will help you determine what you can do with the bathroom and what your options are.

How do I improve my bathroom?

Bathroom Improvements

If you want to improve your bathroom there are many different avenues to take. Options like painting, new tile floor or shower surround, re-stain or new cabinets, new plumbing fixtures or towel bars, change your mirror to a framed mirror, install a new sink and counter top, or maybe just some accent pieces.

– Choose some tile. Not only choosing a great color but choosing a different install pattern or use different color inserts

– Changing the counter tops. This is a big step but will definitely will give you a bigger return on your investment if you go with a granite top

– Changing out the sink. A new fresh sink can add a remodeled look to a bathroom as long as your counter top is in good shape

– Updating the cabinet. If your cabinets are in good shape a good cleaning and refinishing may do. If you are changing the counter top though, sometimes new cabinets are less money.

– Choosing a new plumbing fixture. This is a great thing to update your bathroom if your fixtures are old and worn out. Giving the appearance of a full remodel.

– Changing to a framed mirror. Taking out a full mirror (builder grade) and installing a new framed mirror can really update your room. Just be careful removing the old one.
