Make sure your master bathroom remodel reflects your distinct style

A recent survey reported that Americans spend the equivalent of up to 15 days per-year in the bathroom. That’s why, whether you’re planning a full master bathroom remodel or a simple update, it’s important that the room reflects your personality. Here are a few master bathroom design ideas that will help infuse your distinct style into your new space.

For bathroom remodeling ideas and materials here in Phoenix, contact us at Superior Stone & Cabinet.

Colors, textures, and patterns

The master bathroom doesn’t have to be just boring anymore. You can move away from the days of off-white paint. Not only can you choose a bold, signature color for one or more of your walls, you can also select a colorful tub, sink, or fixtures. For additional pop, pick patterned or textured wallpaper to accent the room.

Artistic flair

Who says you can’t decorate your master bath as you would any other room in your home? Instead of the large, plain mirror that came with the house, hang two smaller, decorative mirrors that have a unique shape or embellishments, or place on the wall photographs or souvenirs that evoke happy memories.

Even your sink can be artistic, with the many shapes and styles of above-counter sinks that are available today.

Keep an eye on architectural details

Visiting an antique or salvage store can provide inspiration for your master bathroom remodel. For example, a vintage cabinet can hold towels and toiletries, while an antique wash stand or dresser can serve as a vanity simply by adding a custom sink top. Gingerbread trim, a chic chandelier, or a salvaged stained glass window can add definite impact.

Talk to the specialists here at Superior Stone & Cabinet for ideas on how we can match the right cabinets and counters to your bathroom project.

Embrace the comfort of the spa experience

Sometimes the smallest details in your master bathroom remodel can make the biggest difference. Your bath can become your own personal spa with features like a rainfall shower head, a hint of marble tile, or a towel warmer. Install a radiant-heat flooring system, and you’ll never want to leave the bathroom.

If the shower is the focus of your project, be sure to check out our shower remodel resources.

Start your master bathroom remodel at Superior Stone & Cabinet

We hope these master bathroom design ideas will spark some thoughts of your own. When you’re ready, contact us at Superior Stone & Cabinet.

From wholesale prices to our huge showroom and warehouse, we not only have the best selection at the lowest prices, we also have a professional team of experts ready to assist you with your bathroom remodeling project.

Invest your tax refund in your home with new counters, cabinets, and floors

It’s tax season, and this is the time of year where a vast majority of Americans receive a tax refund.

There are many things you can do with your refund. However, instead of buying a new car or taking a vacation, we’d argue that you should consider new counters, cabinets, or floors. In fact, making upgrades to your home is one of the most prudent things you can do with your refund.

Superior Stone & Cabinet is your source for granite, quartz, cabinets, and floors here in Phoenix. We offer free in-home estimates in the Valley, and we have everything, all in one place, at our 60,000 warehouse and showroom. To see our selection and meet with home remodeling experts, visit us today!

Pictured: If you're planning on getting a tax refund this season, consider reinvesting it in home upgrades.Spend your tax refund the right way

The biggest misconception about tax refunds are that they’re a form of “free money,” akin to a work bonus or gambling winnings. Not really: your refund is your money, being returned to you in a lump sum format. Unfortunately, this often leads people to make poor spending decisions with their refunds.

In reality, it’s best to be judicious with your use of your tax refund. Most experts advise paying down debt or spending it on things that keep their value. In this blog, we’ll be making the case for the latter option: by reinvesting your refund in your home, you’ll permanently boost its value, while also transforming it into something you can enjoy in the present.

Improve your home’s value

Most experts agree: your kitchens and bathrooms are the best places to invest in upgrades, as they’ll have the biggest impact on your home value and your home’s curb appeal. After all, you know this just from experience: when your friends and family come over, there’s a lot of time spent together in the kitchen.

By reinvesting your tax refund into your home in the form of kitchen remodeling and bathroom remodeling, you’ll be boosting your home’s value when you’re ready to sell.

This may be a seller’s market here in Phoenix, but buyers are more discerning than ever about what their future kitchens and bathrooms should look like. Having a modern, stylish kitchen or bathroom could make the difference between selling your home fast and at asking price, or not.

Create a more enjoyable space for you and your family

Of course, making upgrades to your home doesn’t have to be a completely utilitarian exercise. Even if you’re not planning on selling your home, you can still use your tax refund to transform your kitchen and bathrooms into spaces you’ll enjoy for decades to come.

No matter what your current kitchen or bathroom looks like, Superior can help. For example, our team recently transformed a Mesa home into a space the homeowner could enjoy for years to come. With new cabinets, counters, floors, and some other design upgrades, we created a modern, stylish, and usable space.

Here are 6 tips for caring for your laminate flooring

Laminate wood flooring not only looks attractive, but is durable as well. The flooring is easy to maintain and take care of. In this article, we’ll share some tips for keeping your laminate flooring in perfect shape for years to come. Be sure to call us at Superior Stone & Cabinet with any questions you have!

Laminate wood flooring

1. Use a microfiber mop to clean up

You should use a microfiber mop to clean your laminate wood flooring. This type of mop can easily glide across the floor and pick up pet hair without much difficulty.

The swiveled head of the microfiber mop makes it easy to clean large areas. They can easily go under chairs and tables. What’s more, the mop requires considerably less water to clean the floor.

This is good, since laminate flooring can easily bend if exposed to water. Learn more about how laminate wood flooring interacts with water.

2. Pick concentrated cleaners for your laminate wood flooring

When it comes to cleaning products for laminate flooring, you should only use concentrated cleaners. Avoid using cleaners that require you to add water to the floor, for the reasons listed above.

3. Avoid using vacuum cleaners that contain a beater bar

If you use a vacuum cleaner to clean your laminate flooring, you should avoid using one that contains a beater bar. Using the vacuum cleaner with a beater bar can damage your flooring.

Also, you should consider sweeping with a broom in the direction that the floor is laid. This will help in collecting the dust stuck in between the grooves.

4. Put down protective pads and floor mats

Another piece of important advice for the care of laminate wood flooring is placing protective pads under the furniture. Also, you should consider placing high-quality floor mats at exits and entrances. The mats can collect dust, oil, sand, asphalt, and grit that can damage the flooring.

It’s also recommended to place mats and rugs in high-traffic areas near kitchen sinks, vanities, and stoves. This will help you reduce the wear-and-tear on your floors.

5. Use ice to clean gum and wax

In order to clean chewing gum or candle wax from laminate flooring, you should harden the spot using ice. Be careful not to let the ice melt too much, which could introduce water to the surface. Next, you should use a plastic scraper to remove them from the floor. Make sure that you don’t scratch the surface when using the scraper. Finally, you should wipe the area clean with a damp cloth.

6. Here’s what to avoid using on your floors

Following the above tips will help keep your flooring looking great for years. Routine maintenance will help you avoid damage to your laminate flooring. When it comes to taking care of the flooring, you should avoid using oil, polish, wax, shine enhancers, detergents and varnish. Also, never use spray mops, power cleaners, or steam cleaners, as they can damage the flooring.

Laminate Or Tile Flooring: Which One Is A Better Flooring Option?

Flooring Option Laminate Or Tile?The floors are the unsung heroes of our homes. We tread on them every day without giving a moment’s thought about how they define the overall appeal and look of the house.

The type of flooring that you choose for the home will go a long way in making the look pleasant. Unlike selecting paint for the house, choosing a floor material is like solving a complex puzzle.

Apart from the colors, you have to decide on the floor material and design that is right for your home. This undoubtedly creates difficulty in choosing the right flooring option for your home.

While there are many different types of flooring, the two most common types include tile and laminate flooring. In this article, we will take a close look at the two top options for flooring so that you can make an informed decision regarding the flooring option in your home.

All about laminate flooring

Laminate flooring is also known as ‘floating floor system’ due to the fact that they do not need to be glued down or nailed to the floor. If you are looking for a low-cost alternative to hardwood, tile, or natural stone, laminate flooring is the right option for you.

Laminate floors look exactly like hardwood floors, but cost much less. What’s more, unlike hardwood floors, the color of the laminated floors won’t fade over time. The floor will look great for a long time after purchase. You also won’t have to worry about scratch marks or stains caused by pets. Hardwood floors, on the other hand, are not resistant to scratch, stain, or moisture damage.

All about tile flooring

Tile flooring is a popular choice among homeowners due to their unique design and aesthetic appeal. When it comes to durability, ease of installation, and maintenance, tile flooring is the best for a home. They cost less than hardwood floors, but slightly more than the laminate floors.

Along with increasing the aesthetic appeal, tile flooring can also boost the resale value of the house. Unlike other flooring options, tile floors age gracefully with time. They have a timeless appeal and will not go out-of-fashion anytime soon.

You can find different shapes, sizes, and colors of tile flooring. Furthermore, you can select glazed or unglazed tiles as per your budget and preferences. Glazed tiles are less robust; they are thinner and less dense compared to the unglazed tiles. However, they are more resistant to staining and scratches since they are covered by a layer of liquid glass.

Talk to Superior to choose the right flooring option

If you are still uncertain as to whether you should go with laminate or tile flooring, you should seek out professional help.

At Superior Stone and Cabinet, we have a team of expert professionals that can help you in choosing the right flooring option for your house. Talking to our experts can allow you to make an informed decision regarding your house flooring needs.

Carpet, Tile, and Laminate—Which Type of Flooring Should You Choose?

You’re renovating your home—about it’s about time. New kitchen counters, new paint for the walls, and new furniture. However, what type of flooring should you buy for your home? As it turns out, you have a lot of options. In this blog post, we’ll talk you through the advantages and disadvantages of carpet, tile, and laminate flooring.

We’ve chosen to discuss these three flooring types because we carry them at wholesale prices here at Superior Stone & Cabinet. If you’re interested in learning more about us, our selection, or our flooring installation process, give us a call today or contact us online.

Type of flooring: Carpet

Carpet is a type of flooring with many different color options to choose from.

Carpet

Who doesn’t love carpet? It’s pretty ubiquitous throughout American living rooms and bedrooms, and it can be durable, comfortable, and warming for feet in the winter. There are some other benefits that many people don’t think about, as well, including better sound absorption and softening slips and falls. Finally, carpet is one of the least expensive home flooring options, making it perfect for homeowners renovating on a budget.

However, carpeting does have its downsides. As one might expect, it’s not as spill and stain-resistant as tile or laminate flooring. Over time, it can become dirty and torn, and it will likely need to be replaced far before tile and laminate. Finally, carpet doesn’t have quite the boost to home value or home aesthetics that tile or laminate does—although, it should be noted, that the value of carpet is always in the eye of the beholder. In other words, a buyer may love your home because you have carpet, instead of the other way around.

Tiling

Many homes have tile flooring in kitchens and bathrooms, but more and more homes are installing tile flooring throughout the home, including in living spaces. The benefits speak for themselves: tile flooring lasts a long time and is reasonably durable—if not completely indestructible, it can certainly take a lot of punishment and last for years.

Type of flooring: tile

There are many different varieties of tile flooring.

Tile floors come in a wide variety of options, styles, and colors. As we detailed in our previous blog post on the subject, tile can be very affordable if you buy from the right source.

There are disadvantages to tile flooring, however. Even through Superior carries tile at relatively low prices, it’s still usually more expensive, per square foot, than carpet or laminate flooring. Tile is very hard, and it’s not pleasant to stand or lay on for any amount of time. It can be uncomfortable underfoot in the winter. Finally, it’s difficult to install, and usually requires professional installation of some kind.

When you’re considering tile flooring, be sure to distinguish between ceramic, porcelain, and other varieties of tile—each of which have their own advantages and disadvantages. This blog post has more on ceramic tile flooring.

Laminate

Forget everything you might be picturing when you think of the word “laminate.” Today, the materials used to create laminate flooring have improved to more effectively mimic custom wood flooring, without the exorbitant cost. Laminate flooring balances affordability with durability, making it a great option for homeowners and property managers looking to break away from carpet without breaking the bank.

Type of flooring: laminate

Laminate flooring can very closely imitate the look of hardwood floors at a fraction of the price.

Laminate is less expensive per square foot than real hardwood or tile. It’s easy to install: many laminate floors feature snap-together planks that can be professionally installed in as little as one day. Laminate floors have a poor reputation for being susceptible to scratching, staining, and sunlight damage, but it’s entirely undeserved. It’s actually a really durable type of flooring.

Here’s the downside of laminate: because it has a negative reputation and because many people believe it looks inferior compared to real wood, many homeowners don’t prefer it. This means if you’re selling your home, selling it with laminate may be a tough proposition, compared to carpet or tile flooring. Or not: again, this all depends on the eye of the beholder. This blog post from Freshome describes some of the differences between hardwood and laminate in greater detail.

So, what type of flooring should I choose?

Now, we return to the “eye of the beholder” theme from earlier. The truth is that no “perfect” flooring product exists. Selecting one is something that you’ll need to do based on your home, the kind of things you do in your house, and your own personal preference. As Superior Stone & Cabinet, we help you compare flooring types objectively.

When you stop by our showroom or schedule a free, in-home estimate with us, our professional designers will help you find the type of flooring that’s best for your home and your family.

Room to grow
