    Beautiful Stone Bathrooms

     

    Many traditional materials, like wallpaper, paint, carpet and wood, are impractical and easily damaged in the damp environment of a bathroom. Stone bathrooms stand out of the crowd, being practical, durable and beautiful.

    Modern technologies have made stone bathrooms more affordable than ever before as well as ensuring that even porous stones like limestone can be thoroughly sealed, rendering them water and stain resistant, ideal for creating a beautiful stone bathroom.

    Stone is a versatile material, and it can be used in a number of different ways in a bathroom. Different natural and processed stones have different properties, so you may choose to combine several different stones when creating your perfect stone bathroom.

    Stone bathroom tiles

    From white marble to black granite, natural stone comes in a wide range of elegant colours. The new processed stones on the market have extended the range to include vibrant jewel tones and bright, rich tones. Your stone bathroom tiles can be almost any colour you can imagine, while still retaining the beauty of stone. In addition, stone bathroom tiles are durable, easy to clean and hygienic.

    Stone floors

    Popular throughout the home, stone floors are great choice for the bathroom as they are easy to clean and water simply drains away. They are ideal for a wetroom as you can simply continue the same tile on the floors and the walls, creating a uniform look. We recommend choosing a non-slip finish for bathroom floors.

    Marble baths, granite shower basins and more

    The bath or shower is often the centrepiece of a bathroom by default. Whether you want to blend it in, or make it stand out, a stone bath or shower tray can help. Marble baths have a timeless elegance making them an ideal focal point for a luxurious bathroom, while matching stone tiles and shower tray can make the functional aspects of your bathroom a backdrop for other decorative items.

    Stone bathroom worktops

    The vanity or bathroom worktop is a hard-worked surface, often subject to odd chemical spills, from toothpaste to nail varnish. Stone bathroom worktops make a statement while also being easy to use and keep clean. A marble worktop adds a touch of luxury to any bathroom, while a rough granite worktop or sparkling quartz bathroom worktop gives the room a sleek, modern look.

    The right stone for your bathroom

    At Surrey Marble and Granite, we work with high quality natural and processed stones from around the world. Our professional sealing and finishing techniques mean that we can create a stone bathroom from almost any of the stones we offer. Our staff have years or decades of experience in working with stone, and can advise on any technical aspects involved in creating your stone bathroom – but we can’t decide on your personal style. That’s why we suggest that each of our customers starts by visiting our workshop, where you can get a real, hands-on feel for our stone bathroom options. You’ll quickly find stones which suit you and stones which don’t – and then our experts can help you winnow down the options, finding the right stone for your project and your budget.

    Whilst looking for a subject to write about this week I stumbled across an image of inca stonework which you can see here. I was immediately struck by the amazing precision of their work. After further reading, it became apparent that the Incas generally worked in stone shaped into trapeziums and would use stone of many types, from limestone to granite. Imagine what an Incan Granite worktop may look like!! How the incas managed to cut their stone is still a mystery, as there were no iron tools at this time. It is most […]
