How to combine different natural stones in your bathroom

Ordinarily, stone décor seems cold and detached. Perhaps it’s because we associate it with statues, history, and high-end facades. They leave us feeling these things are beautiful but distant, somewhat removed from us. However, there are lots of situations where this clean, mature elegance works for us. Stone, like tile, works really well in kitchens and bathrooms.

How to Combine Different Natural Stones in Your Bathroom

Natural stone is the number one choice for the bathroom. Natural stone’s water resistant qualities, as well as their non-slip surface, makes them ideal for the wettest room in the house, not to mention they look stunning. In our opinion, natural stones such as limestone and marble look fabulous. The natural markings and neutral colourings make them the ideal material to use and when combined create a textural and sensory experience that is second to none. How do you combine these natural stones for optimal functionality and aesthetics? In this post, we take a look at some excellent ways to make use of natural stones in the bathroom.

Marble floor design ideas

The simplest way to design your marble floor is to use contrasting coloured tiles. You can lay them in a herringbone pattern, stripes, or chess-board styling.

Limestone Floor Patterns

Limestone pavers can quite easily be cut into both simple and complex structures, and thus can really add life to your space. These tiles can then be arranged in patterns that are either simple or complex, depending on your taste.

Where did you last see a marble floor? It may have been on a historical documentary, at the museum, or maybe at the opera house. If you watch reality shows, you’ve probably seen them in someone’s house. Marble floors imply taste and class, and using them in your space raises your social status immediately. That said, it offers lots of benefits beyond style.

How To Effectively Combine Different Natural Stones In Your Kitchen

Mixing natural stones has for the longest time been the best way to renovate and upgrade your kitchen. This is because you can quite literally do anything you want and still get amazing results.

Create Your Alfresco Area with Travertine

Travertine is a natural stone similar to limestone and is often called travertine limestone. It's very similar to limestone in appearance, although contains a unique composition.

Marble Matters offers premium quality and exceptional service.

Stone tiles are surprisingly durable and hardwearing. Acidic fluids such juice and harsh cleaning agents can cause etching on travertine just like on any other stone. Regular cleaning is recommended using a vacuum cleaner and then a mop. The use of a soft cloth is recommended to wipe countertops and remove spills and food remnants.

Italian Porphyry Cobblestone

Italian Porphyry Cobblestone

You can download our porphyry stone specification and installation guide lines here.
Porphyry has been used as a paving stone for centuries. It was easy to quarry and due to its natural flat shape with very high wearing properties, Romans used it extensively. Porphyry is a type of granite that has naturally extruded through the earth’s crust. Unlike most granites, it fissured in layers due to seismic activity. Traditional porphyry pavers have variable thicknesses with unique appearance and texture. This texture provides slip resistance. Porphyry makes excellent driveway paving stones and a wonderful surface for streets. When porphyry is quarried, it comes out as random flagging. The stone is sorted according to approximate size and thickness range, and is cut into cubes, rectangles, and squares.

Travertine Tiles: Cleaning & Maintenance Tips

Travertine tiles are a type of limestone formed when calcium carbonate precipitates rapidly either at a limestone cave or hot spring. Travertine has natural cavities and presents in different colours based on the existing minerals during the formation. The common colours are cream, tan, white, grey, yellow and red.

When it comes to remodelling jobs and interior decorating, very few materials have the wow factor of wood or marble. Marble counter tops, splashbacks and even floors add a certain modern quality to your home with their smooth finishes and reflective qualities. Wood on the other hand brings with it an old-world charm that is both rustic and timeless. Both have the advantage of being easy to maintain and clean, making them the idea for different parts of the home, including the kitchen and the living room.
