Using Natural Stone to Transform Your Bathroom into a Spa-like Sanctuary

Stone makes for an elegant and luxurious choice for any bathroom – it comes in a variety of options, from natural stone like granite to engineered ones like quartz, and are suited for a range of budgets.
Most versions are water-resistant, exceptionally durable, and loaded with luxurious flair. It’s impossible to deny the opulence that natural and engineered stones give off, making them a
favorite for those looking to remodel or construct a modern, spa-like bathroom. Aside from your countertops and walls, there are a number of ways you can use stone in your bathroom.
Let’s explore some of them below –

The first and most common application of stone in the bathroom is on the countertops. Your countertop can be a statement piece, used to highlight your faucet and bathroom mirror. In fact, in some cases, homeowners start by selecting their countertops and then finish bathroom selections from there. You should look for an easy-to-clean and non-porous stone for this application to ensure your countertops look newer for longer despite frequent use. Caesarstone quartz, for instance, is non-porous, durable, and scratch-resistant, as well as being resistant to heat and humidity.

Stone is a common choice for bathroom flooring. Not only does it create a feeling of grandeur
and luxury, but you also have a variety of colors and patterns to choose from. Materials such as Caesarstone quartz and Sensa granite are nonabsorbent and nonporous and are ideal for wet areas like shower surrounds and bathroom floors and walls.

3.Shower/Bath Tiles
One way to add a splash of elegance to your bathing area is to incorporate natural stone in your
bath tile, or the area around your shower. Not only will this add an air of sophistication to the
room, but it also stands out as a great focal piece. More regular cleaning is required with this
application to avoid water marks, so selecting a material with water-resistant properties such as Dekton is ideal.

Typically in the bathroom, we see under-mount or vessel sinks (sits on top of the countertop).
Natural and engineered stone give you vast options for decorative and unique sink fabrication.
This way, you can really amp up the creativity in your space.

5.Accent Walls
If you love the look of a natural stone slab, why not let it be the focal point of your bathroom
space? You can have one wall clad in natural or engineered stone for a luxurious statement piece
in any bathroom space. Cosentino’s new 4mm Dekton Slim surface coverings are perfect for use on bathroom walls as they allow you to clad larger areas in a quicker and more cost friendly manner. This is all whilst giving the same hard-wearing benefits of Dekton.

Whether you are embarking on a new home design or a remodel, you will likely be visiting a
stone fabricator and it won’t just be for your kitchen.
