Natural stones for a perfect bathroom design

Natural stones for a perfect bathroom design

The amazing variety of options we have available for a bathroom remodel can sometimes be a little overwhelming. There are just so many colours, sizes and textures to choose from and so many bathroom design options to consider for our homes.

But just to throw another idea out there that you may not have thought of yet, what about bringing a little nature into your bathroom? And we’re not talking about plants. How about tiling your bathroom with natural stone tiles?

Decorating interiors with natural stone is becoming more and more popular. Natural stone tiles are usually made of marble, sandstone, limestone, travertine and slate and are available in three finishes: riven, when the tiles are irregular, and honed, when they are smooth, and polished when they are glossy. They are perfect for bathrooms, kitchens, hallways, even in the living room around the fireplace. Also, they can be installed either on floor or on walls, though bear in mind some of them might be a little bit heavy for the walls so be sure you talk to a specialist before buying natural stone tiles so that you don’t have to take them back. Have a look at our examples below so that you can get the general idea and see how good natural stone can look on the wall.

Marble comes in many colors, but a combination of matching shades is even more exquisite.
