Marble Bathroom FAQ’s

Marble is a gorgeous addition to any home. It makes a statement and looks timeless, so is the perfect partner to your bathroom. Marble bathrooms are becoming increasingly popular, so we’ve put together some FAQ’s to put you in the know.

How to clean marble

If cared for properly, marble is a stone which will look great for years to come. Being a porous material, ensure if you spill anything you clean it as soon as you can to avoid stains. Hot water will cut through dirt without damaging the stone. You can use a mild detergent but always avoid harsh or acidic chemicals which can create permanent damage. Use a soft towel to completely dry your floor as you don’t want to leave marble wet.

How to seal marble

To protect marble its important to seal it. This stone has joined channels that allow liquids and gases to penetrate. By sealing the surface, it protects it from damage and maintains the colour and look of the marble. In order to seal at home, give your surface an initial clean with a soft dry cloth and some marble cleaner. Pour the sealer into a container and keep the windows open to vent out the strong smell. Use a paintbrush and spread the sealer in the counter with overlapping strokes. Leave it to set for ten minutes before buffing away the excess with a dry cloth. Keep buffing until its completely removed. Now you are free to enjoy your sealed marble.

What’s the difference between marble and marble effect?

Natural marble and marble effect are both great materials in their own ways. Natural marble is unique in that every piece looks different. This means you can enjoy a truly beautiful marble bathroom where every slab is bespoke. Natural marble is luxurious and has a variety of natural applications. Marble effect worktops and tiles are made out of man-made materials such as quartz. These tend to be more affordable and lighter, so they’re easier to work with. Marble effect stones are non-porous, so staining is less likely, this also makes them durable.

What goes with a marble bathroom?

Marble rooms are unique in that they fit well with many other colour schemes and styles. A bathroom with marble can look modern but also more traditional. Marble can be used as a statement feature. If you have a wall or sink with the rest of the bathroom neutral, it can look really effective. Marble with a bright themed bathroom, such as orange, makes a real statement. If you’re unsure how to style your marble bathroom, don’t hesitate to speak to one of our experts. Our professionals can recommend styles as well as give comprehensive information on the stones.

Granite is an inorganic material that has many of the appropriate conditions to let it be used as the surface material for kitchen worktops. It is one of the most used because of its features, among which are its hardness and heat resistance, resistance to water or moisture intake, and its anti abrasive or corrosive features – juices and liquids that are commonly used in everyday cooking are unlikely to harm it. Besides being very hygienic when well maintained, it is particularly durable and resistant to marks and stains.
