Romantic And Peaceful Bathroom Design Of Marble

By KBC Kitchen & Bathroom

Bathroom is a very important space in every home and everybody wants to design it differently. Here’s an example of a very romantic and girlish bathroom in marble. Designer Bev Adams created this space in a Centennial home instead of one of the bedrooms in the house. She swathed her new master bath in classic marble; 18-inch statuary marble tiles on the floor; and an inlay of Thassos marble mosaics in the double shower. Custom cabinets from her own Intuitions line incorporate traditional details and subtly repeat the marble colorations in the finish, a pewter glaze over white painted wood.

Dark blue walls further pick up the tone of the marble veining and contrast with the light colors and punch of bright pink. The result is a peaceful big bathroom where you stop thinking about time and relax. bathroom design ideasbest bathroom designs, big bathroom, big bathroom design, big bathroom ideas, glamour bathroom design, luxury bathroom design, Romantic And Peaceful Bathroom Design Of Marble, modern bathroom design, stylish bathroom design

Elegant Kitchen Countertops

Elegant Kitchen Countertops

Three considerations to remember:

  • When you choose your countertop, select a color and texture that compliments your cabinetry, floor or paint selection.
  • Don’t be afraid to combine two or more countertop materials in one kitchen. Complimentary colors or textures on adjacent surfaces can create visual interest.
  • Remember also that it pays to select a material that will withstand years of use without extraordinary maintenance requirements and is easily repairable should an accident occur.

Your options:

Granite Countertops

Granite is…well…hard as a rock. Though costly, when buffed to a shine it creates a smashing look for kitchen counters. It is also riding a crest of popular style that began over 10 years ago. With granite tops, the experience and expertise of the fabricator is vitally important.

Marbel Countertops

Granite, marble, and limestone, all popular for countertops, are beautiful natural materials. In most areas, you’ll find a great selection of colors and figures.

Wood Countertops

The quality of the countertop edge treatment is important. As an example, a solid surface counter is easy to clean and repair and will take years of use. It might look terrific with a wood edge to match the cabinets, but the wood will not withstand constant exposure to water and household chemicals like the solid surface material. Restrict the wood edge to an area such as a freestanding hutch and use matching or contrasting solid surface material for the front edge.

Consider combining quality decorative materials such as tile, granite or marble with solid surface. Many fabricators can create custom designs for a spectacular visual effect without compromising durability and easy maintenance.

When there are budget constraints, it makes sense to use the highest quality material for the counter areas that will sustain the greatest amount of use, specifying other materials to less often used areas.

Stainless Steel Countertops

Stainless steel countertops are not very elegant and look “cold”. They do not absorb stains oils or odors, but it will scratch easily and scratches cannot be repaired. You can view stainless steel countertops on this page
