3 Factors to Consider When Choosing Your Home’s Materials

Whether it's the bathroom floor or a kitchen counter, equipping your home with long-lasting, high-quality surfaces is a crucial step of every renovation. 

Here's why:

  • The right material(s) can make your home surfaces more durable.
  • They will determine how easy - or hard - it is to clean your home.
  • Your material choices will also determine how your home looks.

When picking out surface materials, here are the top 3 factors to consider before making your decision!

1. Looks

The best way to express your personal style is through the colours, shapes and textures that fill your home! These design elements are played out through your choice of materials, so be sure to select options that match and convey your preferred look. 

2. Cost

Material cost is not the only expense you should be thinking about —other important cost factors include installation, cleaning and polishing costs, as well as the amount of money and time spent on maintaining your surfaces.

3. Function

There may be many material options to choose from for each home surface - each at different price points and with varying qualities - but there is only one factor that should always be at the core of your final decision: function. Depending on the room that you are outfitting and the purpose that it serves, some materials will be a natural fit because of their practical qualities, while others simply won't work.

Truth is, it’s not rocket science!

Before making the final leap on what to decide on, it’s best to get a sample swatch.
