From the Neoclassical Marble Palace in Russia to the Taj Mahal in India, marble has been the most favored royal material. The natural metamorphic rock has been used for thousands of years in important monuments, sculptures, cathedrals, and palaces. The Pantheon’s marble floor in Rome was laid more than 18 centuries ago and continues to attract millions of admirers to this day. The rock forms when limestone changes in texture over decades due to pressure, heat or chemicals. Marble contains other carbon materials including graphite, quartz, and pyrite.
Being utterly timeless, marble can add a touch of drama to any room, while its natural elegance and high durability add to its charm. The bathroom deserves the same attention as any other room while it is the idyllic place to relax and unwind. Available in various hues, marble is the perfect material that can be used to craft modernist or futuristic styles in the bathroom.
Natural stones such as marble not only ooze out splendor and classiness but are also extremely robust. Given the continuous exposure to water, temperature changes and moisture marble, known for its durability and resistance to moisture, is the most obvious choice for bathrooms.
Here are some ways to add a touch of marble drama to your bathroom:
Four ways to add some marble drama
The little details: With all other elements being equal, a bathroom that features a classy marble large basin replete with wooden vanity unit and wall-mounted traditional taps always win. The sheer drama of natural stone combined with traditional wood and brass can make for a stunning visual treat. Adding a marble splash back and countertop can help shield the classy piece from water damage.
Floored by marble: A bathroom with marble flooring combined with an Emperador Marble tile vanity can sweep you or your guests off their feet. The Calcutta Marble is another classic that can bring on an iconic and stylish look while bringing on the illusion of larger space. Pure white marble in tandem with a marble bathtub and well-lit vanity can create timeless elegance and a touch of royal drama.
Geometric wall tiles: Geometric marble tiles on the walls of the bathroom can bring on a quirky, dramatic, contemporary touch while piquing visual interest even when the rest of the decor is laid back.
Marble everywhere: One of the cleverest ways to create understated drama is to keep the look clean, modern, and bright. Covering the walls, counter, floor, and shower area and opting for gold fixtures can surely turn on the charm.
After a tiring day, there’s no idea more appealing than being able to unwind and relax in your bathroom. Marble can transform your bathroom into a room that is fit for queens and kings while elevating luxury to a whole new level!
