Top-end hotels have mastered the art of luxury, and it shows in every detail. Even the bathroom is often more relaxing than any room in your busy home. Fortunately, recreating the soothing yet decadent atmosphere at home isn’t as hard – or as expensive – as you might think. The key is choosing good quality materials and paying attention to the fine details.
Marble and granite are the two stars of the home world. They’ve both been used to build palaces and monuments for thousands of years. Thanks to recent technological developments, you don’t have to be a prince to use these beautiful natural stones – ordinary families can afford a granite kitchen or marble bathroom, too. But which one should you choose, and why?
One of the world’s most prized building materials, marble has been used since ancient times. Once so expensive it was only seen in palaces and monuments, this natural beauty is now available to the general public, and marble worktops can be admired in homes across Surrey.
