Excited about finally investing in a Jacuzzi® bathtub? Have you given any thought to what you would like to do with your old wall surround? Many homeowners choose to update their wall surround along with switching out an old bathing apparatus, but there are so many options on the market that it can be hard to find the perfect product for your needs. You can learn a little bit about tile options below.
Tile Options to Suit Your New Jacuzzi® Bathtub
There are several different kinds of tile used for bathroom wall surrounds. Some of the most common kinds include natural stone (usually quartz, granite, or marble), ceramic, porcelain, and glass. They all come in a variety of different colors and textures and have different pros and cons. For example, glass is water-resistant and easy to clean, but can look a bit cheap or outdated. Glazed ceramic is affordable and slip-resistant but can be prone to cracking. Porcelain is denser and more durable than ceramic but comes with a higher price tag. No matter what kind of tile you choose, it will likely be installed using grout. Grout stains easily, attracts mildew, and is an overall pain to keep clean.
