Versatile and elegant granite bathrooms

Marble bathrooms have been popular since the Golden Age of Hollywood, when screen goddesses like Elizabeth Taylor or Vivien Leigh were often shown in a marble bath or at a marble vanity. Granite worktops, while popular in kitchens from Berkshire to Aberdeen, have been ignored in the bathroom, which is a same as it’s a versatile material that can create a truly elegant look.

The choice and range you need

Our extensive catalogustone-bathroome features granites in a wide range of colours including red, yellow, green, blue, brown, white and grey – and, of course, the classic midnight black. Each granite worktop is unique, with a patterning particular to the individual slab, but the practical features are the same. Granite is a versatile stone suitable for a wide range of purposes, from building castles to tiling bathrooms. As a home design material, it’s highly practical being waterproof, heat resistant, fire resistant and incredibly tough and durable.

Making the most of a small space

Many British homes have small bathrooms, yet that doesn’t mean they get less use! Granite and other stones are a particularly worthwhile investment for a small bathroom. By using fine materials you create a relaxing, luxurious space despite the small size. Stone is also incredibly practical as a bathroom design material as it’s tough as rock, easy to clean and fully waterproof. By using stone tiles you can create a wetroom effect without the workhorse look of ceramic tile. Light coloured stones are a great way to lighten the room, giving the illusion of space, while also creating a practical space for bathing and dressing.

Granite bathroom worktops

Many families are desperately looking for extra storage space in the bathroom. Whether you keep tripping on bath toys or are simply looking for somewhere out of sight to hide a few necessities, we can help. As many bathrooms are awkward shapes and full of large, oddly shaped pieces of porcelain, a custom-built under-sink cabinet is the best storage option for many Berkshire homes. At Surrey Marble and Granite, each granite worktop we make is individually cut and finished, which means that making a bespoke piece in an unusual size or shape is no problem. Need a curve at the front and to fit around an odd pipe at the back? We can do it!

Vanities and shelves

Our stones aren’t just greamodern bathroomt for worktops – they’re ideal for vanities, table tops and even shelves as well. Stone is self supporting which means that you can use it to cross gaps and even create floating shelves. If you’re looking for more creative storage space and are ordering a marble vanity top, granite worktop or other stone cut, talk to us about using the offcuts as small shelves. The beauty of the stone makes them gorgeous when empty – and sturdy enough to fill!

Thanks to modern technological improvements, these unusual stones and many others are available to ordinary families in Surrey.

I recently stumbled across an amazing artist who works solely in slate! The nature of the shape of slate creates stunning visual effects in terms of shadow and light. The image shows Alan Turing, who “did more than any other to make possible the breaking of the German Enigma codes at the secret Station X at Bletchley Park in Buckinghamshire.”. On his website http://www.stephenkettle.co.uk, Stephen explains that the process takes a great deal of time, an average of 60 hours per week! He goes on to say that this process […]

Many home and garden stores sell fitted kitchens with work surfaces, units and appliances as part of the package. A full kitchen with no hassle of shopping around for the various components can seem like a great idea to save time and hassle. However as appealing as this may seem there are a number of reasons that cutting cost on time may mean compromising on the quality of a kitchen. For each individual component of a kitchen there are specialists, who know their individual fields inside out. These specialists have […]
