Sophisticated Bathroom Designs That Use Marble To Stay Trendy
As we have already mentioned, there is one way that you can turn your bathroom into an eternal classic without much effort and with reasonable investments – that magic word is marble. You can combine Carrara White with any darker and veined marble to accomplish a sophisticated look. The magic of this type of natural stone is that it is also easily combined with other materials – such as wood or other stones. On top of that it can be used either as a highlight - a marble vanity top, marble-tiled bathtub or a marble-decorated wall, as bellow:
Or it can be utilized for an all-marble-bathroom design as it was done in Australia in Seacombe Grove House by b.e. architecture.
One of the very successful combinations for a bathroom is the mixture of wood and marble. The natural stone tiles used give this relatively small room the sense of glamour, while the wooden shelves and cupboard doors make it cozy and welcoming. The large window combined with plenty of mirrors make the bathroom bright and the stunning city view is an extra that you can enjoy while having a bath.
The combination of black and white is an evergreen that can be applied to any room in the house to make it stand out. Add marble to this duo and you will end up with a sophisticated bathroom that speaks of luxury. The illuminated bathtub below surrounded by black marble walls with a white accent at the back wall is simply inviting you to grab a glass of champagne and forget all your worries. After such a bath all the troubles of the day are washed away.
