Customise your bathroom with marble

Marble bathroomJust like the clothes your wear and the image you present to the world, your home says a lot about who you are. It is, after all, the place where you spend the most time and as such is and should be expected to be an extension of your personality. The way you decorate and dress your home is reflective of your tastes and lifestyle and should make you feel at ease and positive. A lot of clutter and a home being in ill repair can make its inhabitants feel ill at ease and potentially create negativity. A well-kept home finished to a high quality on the other hand promotes a sense of calm and order.
It is relatively easy to dress living areas and bedrooms as much of the decoration and personality comes from colour and fabrics used as well as small decorative items. Other rooms in the home however require more drastic and permanent work to really make your own. Kitchens for example are difficult to make a personalised mark on without a complete overhaul adding both units and sideboards to their owner’s tastes. This is also true of bathrooms where creating a unique and individual room involves replacing the entire bathroom suite. Of course a touch of paint adds a certain amount of personality but more work is required to give your home a truly individual facelift.
In bathrooms there are more options than you might think. Installing a wet room or a custom vanity unit made from stone can add elegance unobtainable by a basic bathroom suite revamp. One stone that is particularly effective in creating an affluent feel and a beautiful finish is marble. Marble can be used in bathrooms in any quantity, from a few touches to a fully clad marble bathroom. There are many benefits to using marble for all applications including flooring, cladding, basins, and vanities amongst others. It is easy to clean and maintain, is strong and versatile as well as being aesthetically pleasing.
Marble bathrooms used to be fairly common in domestic settings but are now more commonly found in high-end hotels and commercial buildings. Marble bathrooms are just as beautiful as they have always been however and may add value to their home. Their past association with the wealthier still resonates, although marble is not as expensive as you might think. There are many colour and design options available for marble as it can be sourced and custom cut to your specifications. With a little extra initial planning you can have a totally unique bathroom that will last and last.

This week, my interest has been peaked by cube housing in Rotterdam, Netherlands. The houses, designed by Piet Blom, are designed to ‘furnish’ a pedestrian bridge covering a busy street in the centre of the city. The houses are based on the idea of a tree, where by a ‘canopy’ is created underneath which can be used for children to play in for example. You can see this effect in one of the images below, the houses leave only a very small area of light between them at the top […]
