I can’t imagine a cooler material for a bathroom than rough stone – it’s natural, eco-friendly and looks modern and luxurious at the same time; this material is long-lasting and easy to find. There are many ideas how to apply it in the design, for example, decorate the bottom and legs of the bathroom with stones; decorate walls and floor with stones – or designers just decorate the shower and washbasin walls with them. Stone bathtubs look amazing and warm, and so do the washbasins. Rough stone creates rustic atmosphere with natural twist, sleek stone adds elegance. Look for more ideas below.
Stone walls, whether you go for an accent wall or for all of them, are an amazing idea to add texture and interest to the space and make it feel like outdoors. You can apply such an idea to rustic, farmhouse, cabin, shabby chic, vintage and many other styles. You can accent your bathing space, your sink space or just the shower space with stone and clad all the rest with tiles or wood. Play with the color, or if it’s hard to install real stone, you may go for decorative stone or tiles that imitate it. Floors can be also done with the same stone or tiles if you want a full stone-inspired look.
If you don’t feel like going with stone on the walls and floor (it may be tricky to install), you can add stone textures and beauty to the space in another way. Prefer stone sinks, bathtubs or vanities – they will definitely stand out in the space. Don’t go for more than one item at the same time, otherwise it won’t stand out that much. Bathtubs, sinks and vanities cut out of real slabs of stone, with live edges, look fantastic and feel like you are outdoors. Accent the imperfections, don’t go for sleek surfaces – this is natural beauty!
