When it comes to bathroom countertops there's no limit to how creative you can be, because most countertops are custom-designed for each installation. There are hundreds of colors, patterns, and materials to choose from, but not all of them work well in the bathroom where water and condensation are a constant concern.

When choosing the material for the floor of your bathroom, you should put safety before aesthetics. Here is a bit about some of the more commonly used floor surfaces in bathrooms.
|Bathroom Wall Covering
They are the background; they set the tone for your bathroom; they are the first way that you begin creating your environment-they are your walls. With recent technological advances, fashioning a new mood has never been easier-or more fun. From paint to wallpaper, today's wall coverings are only limited by the imagination.
|Bath tub Basics
Many times a Bath tub is just one of those items that gets casually sketched on a blueprint and... when it's too late... you find yourself with a less than enjoyable bathing experience. This can all be avoided with a little thought and planning, because there are so many options to choose from.
Most quality faucets are made from brass and are sold in several finishes, from powder-coated enamel to gold plating. Parts may be either machine made or cast in molds, but the cast process is considered to be superior. Another popular option is plastic.
You can really make a big splash when it comes to designing your shower. Unlike the old days when manufacturers offered a only few standard stalls or tub/shower combinations - now you can choose all your shower fixings, including valves, doors, shower heads, handle bars, jet sprays and much more to create a one-of-a-kind shower.
Bathroom sinks, also called lavatories, are available in an infinite range of colors, patterns, styles, designs, heights, depths, widths, and materials. They can be pedestal style, wall hung, under-counter mount, above counter vessels, integrated, self-rimming, or freestanding. This variety affords you a great opportunity to express yourself.
When designing your bathroom, the easiest product to pick out should be your toilet, because it's style is simply one of personal preference because all of them work in the same way. The first style point will be deciding whether you want a round or elongated model, a one or two piece, how high you want it to sit and whether you want a pressure-assisted or gravity feed.
