When TV host and fashion icon Louise Roe gutted her master bathroom, she wanted a mix of form and function that only quartz could provide. “Quartz is a great option because it still gives the gorgeous, glamorous look of marble while standing the test of time much better.” Roe replaced the walls and floors with Statuario Nuvo.
“I was aiming to fulfill my vision of quartz on every surface, and this was something we were able to achieve with the help of Caesarstone—even the bathtub and the inside of the shower are in this beautiful material.” Roe designed a calming, clean environment where she could start and end the day in peace and beauty.
When designing or refinishing a home, there are few materials as elegant and durable as quartz. This is especially true when it comes to creating the bathroom of your dreams. While natural stones such as marble and granite are beautiful, there are several drawbacks when surfacing wet areas like bath vanities and shower surrounds. Bathrooms are regularly exposed to water, heat, chemicals and scratches. The porous nature of natural stone allows liquids, including water, to penetrate the surface. It’s recommended that you seal the surfaces each year to avoid the possibility of mold and mildew buildup; however that seal is not foolproof. Additional drawbacks include: inconsistent veining and coloring, weight, scratching and staining.
Choosing the right Caesarstone quartz slabs can make small spaces feel bigger, dark spaces feel lighter, and average spaces feel extraordinary! Think about choosing a quartz surface that will compliment your fixtures and the other areas of your bathroom. Many top designers opt for marbled white or grey quartz with bronze or copper hardware.
The thickness of the tile is another important consideration. Caesarstone’s 13mm thickness is ideal shower surrounds and wall cladding. It’s not too heavy and can be installed clean and easily.
One issue that many people overlook when designing their dream bathroom is maintenance. Caesarstone quartz is extremely durable and easy to clean—just wipe with a damp cloth and you’re on your way. Visit our blog post for more information on the care and maintenance of your Caesarstone.
