I can’t think of a cooler material for a bathroom than raw stone – it’s natural, environmentally friendly and looks modern and luxurious at the same time. This material is durable and easy to find. There are a lot of ideas how to apply it in design, for example, decorating the floor and legs of the bathroom with stones; decorate the walls and floor with stones – or designers simply use them to decorate the walls of the shower and sink. Stone bathtubs look great and warm, as do the sinks. Rough stone creates a rustic atmosphere with a natural touch, smooth stone creates elegance. You can find more ideas below.
Stone walls, whether you choose an accent wall or all of them, are an amazing idea for adding texture and interest to the room and making it feel like it’s outdoors. You can apply such an idea to rustic, farmhouse, cottage, shabby chic, vintage and many other styles. You can accent your bathing area, your sink or simply the shower area with stone and cover the rest with tile or wood. Play with the color, or if real stone is difficult to install, you can opt for decorative stone or tiles that imitate it. Floors can also be done with the same stone or tiles if you want a stone-inspired look.
If you don’t feel like having stone on the walls and floor (installation can be tricky) there are other ways to add stone texture and beauty to the room. Give preference to stone sinks, bathtubs or vanities – they will definitely stand out in the room. Do not go for more than one item at a time or it will not attract attention. Bathtubs, sinks and vanities made from real stone slabs with living edges look fantastic and feel like they are outdoors. Emphasize the imperfections, do not choose smooth surfaces – this is natural beauty!
