Many bathroom design trends come and go but few remain timeless quite like natural stone. Natural stone is a sturdy and eco-friendly option that can be used in a variety of areas in your bathroom. Due to its beauty and versatility, using natural stone has become a staple in bathroom remodels. Here are our top reasons why you should consider including natural stone in your renovation plans.
As trends progress, low maintenance bathrooms have become increasingly popular. Natural stones such as granite and manufactured stone such as quartz both provide low to no maintenance upkeep for bathroom surfaces. Quartz is manufactured with a mix of ground stone and resin, so its surface does not require regular sealing like granite or marble. Granite does require sealing every few months, but it is durable making it difficult to scratch or chip. Granite also has a high heat resistance protecting it from curling irons and flat irons that are used and placed on bathroom countertops.
No two pieces of stone look the same, this is another reason that natural stone is a stunning and unique choice for your bathroom remodel. Marble has colored “veins” running through the stone creating a unique pattern in each cut. Granite comes in wide range of colors due to the variety of minerals within each slab. Light colored granites such as white or yellow create a welcoming and bright environment. Deep gray or brown granites add a sense of elegance to any bathroom. Quartz also offers a wide color palette. Depending on its ground stone contents and resin shades quartz can range anywhere from white to brown or even black!
The wide variety of color and pattern options make natural stone the perfect fit for any bathroom décor or aesthetic. The appearance of stone communicates quality and elegance in any room of the home.

Adding natural stone to your bathroom renovation can increase the value of your property due to its timelessness and beauty. When properly cared for, natural stone surfaces can last a lifetime making them a long-term investment into the value of your home.
