We know there is one room in your home that will always look better with natural stones: the bathroom. Walking into a marble bathroom is like walking into your own personal palace. A travertine bathroom can make you feel like you traveled back in time to the Roman Empire; while an onyx bathroom can give the room a more modern and fun look and feel. Here we present you a know-how guide on where and what materials work best according to your design wishes.
The easiest and most common way of incorporating stone into your bathroom is through your countertops. A beautiful stone can highlight your faucet, an oversized mirror or any other detail placed on your bathroom vanity. Marble is a great choice for countertops as it will be easy to take care for as long as you remember to seal them regularly. Granite is also a great option due to its heat-resistant qualities; remember there is a high possibility you will place a curling iron or straightener on your countertop and you don’t want them to damage the stone. However, it can look quite monotonous so mixing it with modern cabinets and accessories is the way to go.
When it comes to flooring, marble might seem like the best option when it comes to design aesthetic. Marble floors make your space look extremely elegant and brighter. However, many types of marble are actually quite porous, this means that they can be extremely susceptible to staining. But not to worry, clean your floor regularly with marble-safe cleaners and seal them every other year, that will do the trick. As an alternative, stones like travertine or limestone are great choices. They will give your bathroom a very cozy look plus they are durable, strong and can resist heavy traffic and spills.
3. An accent wall
We are obsessed with statement walls in natural stone. We love the many possibilities in which we can play around with this and how they look like a piece of art. Onyx is our favorite material for this kind of look. In all honesty, there are no limitations with this kind of application, whichever stone you choose will look fantastic and will turn your bathroom into your own art gallery.
4. Sinks and bathtubs
If you want to splurge a little bit more you can go for the full thing and actually create your own bathtub or sink out of natural stone. Stone bathtubs are a beautiful and simple way to level up your bathroom design, just remember to rinse and dry the surface of the tub using a towel after each use. This will prevent it from discoloring over time. It is also important to keep in mind that your bathtub will most likely not retain its original finish over a long period of time, whether you choose a matte, semi-glossy or glossy finish.
