“Oh yeah? And why’s that?” asks Robert with a smile. “We’re going to make it that way, duh,” Christina laughs. “We’re going to use the best bathroom materials for the floors, walls, cabinets, and everything.”
Robert frowns in thought. “What are those best materials anyway? I feel like we should do some research,” he suggests. “That’s a great idea!” says Christina, picking up her phone. “We can also look up bathroom remodeling costs.”

The Best Bathroom Materials
The best bathroom materials for floors are porcelain and luxury vinyl tiles, For walls, it’s porcelain tile and shinier paints. For showers, it’s porcelain tiles and glass dividers. For cabinets, it’s quality MDF, wood, and furniture-grade plywood. Quartz is best for bathroom countertops.
Why These Materials Are Best For Bathrooms
Porcelain tile is a great material for bathroom floors, walls, and showers. It’s durable, water-resistant, and comes in a wide selection of styles. You can even have it look like wood! It’s pricier than some other materials but it’s longer life-span is worth it.
For floors, besides porcelain, you can use luxury vinyl tiles. It’s waterproof, has many different looks, and is easier to repair than porcelain.
While most people won’t cover their entire bathroom walls with porcelain tile, you can. You can also use shinier (i.e. glossier) paints. They’re more heat and water-resistant.
Glass dividers for showers are better looking and easier to care for than curtains. Squeegee them off after each use to keep them clean. They won’t mold or mildew if you do. Plus, you can use the squeegee on the walls too! It also creates a more open feel.
