Bathroom and tiles almost always go hand-in-hand. Unfortunately, tiles that have been improperly installed or cracked grout can cause serious damage from water exposure. This seems to be the reason behind a growing popularity with single slab marble in showers and bathroom vanity countertops.
Shawn Daghigh of EuroStoneCraft explains that one piece of marble is all you need for the shower. "The shower floor pan is a solid stone slab custom-made to your shower width … so there's no water-exposed grouting, no cracking or leakage," he told the Burke Connection. "This means there's no mold buildup, and no need for time-intensive maintenance," he added.
Besides being able to customize marble to fit any area in the bathroom, the material also comes in a variety of colors, so you'll be sure to find a shade to suit your bathroom aesthetic. For a traditional look, for instance, marble in white with gray veins can be added. The metamorphic rock also comes in a blue and white combination for those who prefer a bold approach in the bathroom.
