How you could use natural stone to transform your bathroom

Marble Bathroom Cleaning Restoration Repair London

We all know it’s one of the most intimate and important spaces in any home. But it’s easy to forget just how much we ask of our bathrooms. They have to be functional, well-lit and clean for a busy family that’s trying to get out of the house in the morning. But, come the evening, we expect more soothing lighting, a gentler atmosphere and a relaxing sanctuary for a long soak in a bubble bath.

So here’s how you can add value to your home while getting your bathroom to fulfil its multiple roles, thanks to beautiful natural stone. (And you won’t have to break the bank to do it.)

Creating a retreat

Natural materials tend to provide a more relaxing vibe than synthetic ones. And you can choose from a huge range of stones. For example, one idea could be rough granite tiles with reclaimed wood for a very soothing look. Additionally, bear in mind that a less polished finish means your stone is not too slippery, which is clearly safer for a bathroom.

Build your own at-home spa

Create your very own spa at home with granite, limestone or marble tiles for a look that’s clean and crisp. What’s more these materials are easy to clean without leaving an antiseptic feel behind. That gives you one less thing to worry about, meaning you can focus on relaxation.

Combine the practical and the beautiful

Clearly, bathrooms must of necessity be functional. But that doesn’t mean they have to be unattractive. With practical yet beautiful materials, you can create a gorgeous space, and without busting your budget. Granite tiles, for instance, are easy to clean and stain
and waterproof. They also minimise damp problems, since they shrug off water and other liquids without absorbing them.

Littlest room in the house?

If your bathroom is on the small side, consider a statement wall covered with granite or marble tiles. This adds a focal point, but won’t reduce any of your valuable space. You could also think about defining areas such as the shower tray in contrast tiles for added effect.

Restoring a period feature

If you’re lucky enough to have a period feature such as a fireplace in your home, stone tiling could be the ideal way to repair and highlight the surrounds. That way, you also create a fantastic focal point.
