The design of the bathroom constitutes a special stage of any architectural construction. Marble, granite and natural stones have been the dominant building materials even from ancient times.
Baths of all kinds were made using high quality, timeless materials. White marble with soft waters in shades of green, beige, gray or red, was usually the star of the show.
Even today, carved marble sinks evoke admiration thanks to their elegance and beauty. They resemble works of art of high aesthetic value.
Nowadays, the bathroom is an integral part of every home, cottage or apartment. It cannot be missing from a hotel, a gym or a mall, a museum or a church.
The shape and size of the bathroom varies depending on the use it serves. It may be limited to a simple restroom with only the essentials (a basin and sink), a half-bath with a shower cabin, or be a fully blown, spacious, comfortable bathroom with a bathtub or sauna and (if in business premises) even a lobby…
Why should I choose marble for the bathroom?
The special technical characteristics of marble, such as its durability, high quality and timelessness, the variety of colors and its incomparable aesthetics, make it one of the most sought after building materials for the bathroom.
Marble, limestone or granite can be used on the sink bench or in the bathroom shelves, and can match excellently with a variety of plumbing accessories (from faucets and spouts to wall mount holders). The end result is going to be unique and fully functional.
Marble sculpture (one of the oldest arts man ever made) can give the material a breadth of forms and shapes that perfectly harmonize with any decorative style, classic or modern.
Natural rocks can be used for wall cladding of the bathtub or shower, or even the entire bath room, and match perfectly with glass or metal.
Non-slip marble or incandescent granite is the best solution for safety when it comes to the shower floor or the stairs leading to the Jacuzzi.
Renovation or new construction?
Whether you’re building a new bathroom, renovating or completely revamping an old lavatory, the use of marble achieves to upgrade its aesthetics, quality and value.
Even since the antiquity, marble has been considered a symbol of luxury and power, often defining the social status of those who could afford it.
The appearance of the material, whether it’s non-slip (matte, combed, splitface, etc.) or polished, is the result of the application of modern technologies in the processing of marble. It can perfectly suit either modern or classic trends and can be harmoniously combined with any other building material.
Marble –as a natural material- is environmentally friendly, making it the best choice for sustainable architectural applications.
Time makes it the most beautiful and valuable element of modern construction. Its maintenance (after many years) can restore it almost to its original appearance.
The use of natural rocks in bathrooms and personal care rooms (restrooms, powder rooms, etc.) is also recommended in the construction or renovation of business premises (hotels, restaurants, cafes, beauty salons, etc.), as the result causes a sense of luxury and care for the customer.
