This week, we’re going inside, specifically to your bathtub.
With Valentine’s Day upon us, it would be remiss if we didn’t offer some photos and suggestions on romantic stone tubs. Last week, we talked about water features and stone--the perfect marriage of beauty and nature. A stone enclosed tub creates a similar effect.
The options for stone baths can be luxuriously opulent, or delightfully irregular. Stonework isn’t just limited to the bath surround, either. Quartz shelving completes the look of elegance when one needs a handy place to store towels or other items.
For those who are looking for something a little more rustic, stacked stone surround and wall brings the outdoors inside. With the addition of a few houseplants, the ambiance of nature meeting comfort is complete.
There are few things which convey romance better than the soft glow of a stone candle wall beside a tub. Stone is a perfect place to add candles. It won’t scorch or burn. Stone doesn’t turn slick and disintegrate like wallpaper or paint. Candles around a tub are soothing and romantic. There is no need for mold-inducing grout or other high-maintenance products. Cleaning stone is a breeze, and its durability is unsurpassed.
Stone tub surrounds can be made to match already-installed stone countertops or other stone features in the bathroom. Since stone is so versatile, it can be adapted to various applications, and sized according to the needs of the existing elements. The color of various stone materials bring out the very best in the other facets of the bathroom, whether it be cabinets, fixtures, or lighting.
Utilizing a high-end material like stone will add to the value of your home, but in particular, the aesthetic appeal cannot be surpassed by any other product. So, add a little romance to your home and life by adding romantic stone elements to your bathtub.
