Marble Bathroom Project in Mid Cornwall

Posted On 23/06/2015

Our customer loved Statuario marble and asked us to get involved with these marble bathrooms in Cornwall, near Truro.  

We had marble bath surrounds with marble splash backs.

Note the taps & shower head – holes were indicated at template stage and cut out at the workshop.

All of this marble is 20mm thick and was chosen from one of our suppliers based in Rickmansworth in London, you can view their range of stone by clicking here – M&G Centre

Stauario Marble is one of the finest Italian marbles.

As well as installing bath surrounds & splash backs we also installed marble wall cladding in two shower enclosures.

All the holes that were required for the shower head & shower controls were cut out back at the factory before the marble was brought to site.

We now move on to the marble vanity tops. You will see the ornate edge profile that was created for these vanity tops, it’s what we call and ogee.

And this ogee is more traditional because the 20mm thick vanity top has a 10mm thick bull nosed piece adhered to the underside which runs around the perimeter of the stone.

In this bathroom we had a double vanity top, his & hers.

The same ogee edge profile has been used again, but with no radius corners it was easier to manufacture.

The veining on these vanity tops look awesome.

The surface of the marble is polished which gives a beautiful reflection.

You will probably have read in many articles that marble will stain easily, and the lighter the marble, the more easily it will stain.

These statements are true, so it’s important to seal marble.

We are certified applicators and stockists of Dry Treat Stain Proof, which is a micro porous sealant for natural stone and porcelain.

You can view all the necessary information on Dry Treats website here www.drytreat.com 

Due to Dry Treats unique micro porous technology, the sealant actually lines the capillaries of the stone. Allowing the stone to breath.

But because the sealant sits within the stone rather than on top like the old surface sealers used to.

It means that you don’t have to re-seal your stone every 6 to 12 months.

You can go without re-sealing for ages.

Marble is easy to clean and using hot soapy water is sufficient most of the time.

But if you want to clean your marble with a cleaning product it’s best to use a ph neutral product.

And we recommend using a product like Hanafin Rejuvenata, which we also stock.
