You’re getting ready to remodel, you’ve watched a bazillion HGTV shows, and you have Houzz and Pinterest boards up the wazoo! Fantastic! You're off to a great start, however, seeing real world examples of remodeled spaces can help bring your options to life. It can also help you understand the true color and sheen of specific items you might want in your house. As a designer I can tell you, there are a million shades of white, and the only way to match them all together is by seeing them in person.
Here we pick the 7 best home improvement and remodeling showrooms to go visit in Austin, Texas. Bamboo has no official affiliation with any of these shops, and receives no kickbacks or advertising payments from them – we just think they’re worth visiting to take a look.
A giant plumbing and home improvement warehouse that’s open to the public, they have more faucet, shower and lighting fixtures than you can shake a stick at, as well as a shower enclosure with various panels and controllers. It’s open to the public, so you can stroll right in. 700 E St Elmo Rd, Austin, TX 78745, USA
If you are looking for tile overload in Austin, Floor & Décor is the place to head to. Porcelain, ceramic, marble, granite, travertine, onyx, glass, metal – in all shapes, sizes and colors.

Once you have taken a look at some real-world examples, Bamboo’s virtual design service can help you visualize how your remodel will look before you get started. Our interior design and 3D artist Pros will take your Houzz and Pinterest boards as well as any photos you have taken, and work with you to create a 3D visualization – just like on the HGTV shows. Costs start at several hundred dollars with no commitment to use Bamboo for the full remodel if you don’t want to. You can get 3D rendered stills, 360 panoramas, videos or even fully immersive 3D walkthroughs where you can swap in and out different combinations of finishes – all depending on your timeframe and budget.

If you are doing countertops in your remodel, it’s really worth going to several stone wholesalers who have the slabs. You can pick your own slab from granite, marble, quartz, quartzite etc – all with different colors, patterns and properties. As a wholesaler, Triton may ask you if you have a fabricator yet – you can just mention Bamboo App Inc (we have an account there), and tell them that we are OK with them releasing per square foot slab pricing to you. Any queries, jump on our website and live chat with us, or call us up, we’ll help you out. We practice radical transparency in all our pricing for remodels, so you’re going to find out the price breakdowns anyways. Triton is at 2515 Brockton Dr #101, Austin, TX 78758, USA
This is another countertop place to look at close by. They have a great selection of slabs and quartz to look at. You can find it at 8950 Research Blvd, Austin, TX 78758, USA4.
