Choosing and using stone surfaces for your bathroom

From the elegant luxury of a period drama to chic modern minimalism, stone bathrooms come in all shapes and sizes. While granite kitchen worktops and marble floors are common, many people don’t realise how many practical and beautiful options there are for including stone in your home.

Stone is, in many ways, the ideal material for use in the bathroom. Even softer stones like marble and limestone are waterproof and not harmed by water or condensation. They’re also hygienic and easy to clean – a perfect choice for a busy family bathroom. While highly polished marble can be slippery, modern cutting and finishing techniques mean that stone slabs and tiles can have a good grip, creating a safe, non-slip space.

Creating a statement worktop

An obvious place to use stone. Creating a statement worktop is an easy way to draw the eye and update your bathroom. At Surrey Marble and Granite, we custom-make each piece, so you can have a shape and style that exactly suits your space. Colours range from classic white marble to fire-engine red processed stone, so whatever your décor you’ll find something to suit.

Stone bathroom tiles

Another popular choice – and with good reason. Highly attractive as well as being easy to clean, stone tiles can be used on the floor and walls to create a sealed space that prevents water from escaping into joists, plaster and other structures. For small or awkward spaces, slabs can be custom-cut and pieced to form a floor or cover a wall. Slabs tend to be thicker than stone tiles, so while they’re heavier they are also more likely to be self-supporting.

Shaped stone: baths and showers

From the deep marble baths of the silver screen to modern post-industrial design, stone bathroom fittings have been on-trend for a hundred years. Today, high-tech processed stones have made even more shapes available at affordable prices, while traditional stoneworking skills offer contemporary pieces in classic materials. While our primary focus is on stone floors, worktops and other slab-based designs, we’re happy to offer our advise on all elements of a stone bathroom.

You’re in charge

One of the benefits of choosing a stone bathroom is that the materials are reliable and the options are endless. A sleek marble and a rough granite tile may have the same practical properties but very different looks. As a result, it’s easy to choose exactly the style that suits your home.

At Surrey Marble and Granite, our team of expert stoneworkers are on hand to explain the real differences between types of stone, finishes and other choices you’ll need to make. We have over 30 years of experience to draw on, so whether you’re looking for a relaxing hideaway, a practical family bathroom or a modern statement piece, we can help you create your ideal stone bathroom.
