Most Popular Materials Used in Orange County Homes

When it comes to renovations and new builds, homeowners can choose from a limitless supply of materials to go into their new space. From floors to walls and everything in between, the options are endless. While selecting materials for your new home can be exciting, it can also be overwhelming given all the great options on the market. That’s why we’ve put together our list of top building materials being used in Orange County to help guide you and bring some of that fun back into the planning of your home renovation or build.

Quartzite Countertops

Quartz has been used extensively over the past several years, but we’re starting to see homeowners switch to quartzite. Like quartz, quartzite offers the same durability, but instead of having that speckled manmade look, quartzite has a much more natural look, giving it a more high-end feel. 


Porcelain Countertops

If are looking for something even more unique, consider porcelain. Like quartz, it’s durable and nonporous and come in slabs that look like granite, marble, or any other natural material you would want. Porcelain is the perfect material to use for your outdoor kitchen. The material is heat tolerant, as well as water and UV resistant, making it an ideal choice for both indoors and outdoors.

Luxury Vinyl Flooring and Engineered Wood

Luxury vinyl popularity has grown over recent years. The flooring provides homeowners that natural wood, tile or stone look while also being incredibly durable. Luxury vinyl is resistant to both moisture and climate and provides stain and scratch resistance, making it the perfect option for families with young children and pets. Engineered wood also continues to be a hot trend in Orange County due to its beautiful finish, durability, and resistance to heat and moisture. 


Subway Tile

Geometric-style tiling is a huge trend in many southern Californian homes and this will likely continue for the next couple years. If you’re one who doesn’t want to switch out backsplashes in the next few years, you may want to consider a more timeless look by using subway tiles. And this concept doesn’t have to mean boring thanks to the different grout and placement options: off-set, vertical-set, diagonal, or herringbone. You can trust that utilizing subway tile will create a beautiful, clean look that will stay in style for long time.
