Using Quartz in Bathroom Design
Quartz is used in bathrooms in domestic and commercial properties the world over, and that is because it boasts a number of benefits that other materials may not possess. Quartz’s durability, visual quality and longevity means that it can be used in bathrooms for years on end without having to worry about replacing the surface. There are many ways you can use quartz in your bathroom, and this article will look at some of the most interesting and effective.
Wet rooms are an example of an innovative way to use quartz, whether your home is old or new. Wet rooms are created by cladding shower trays and walls in natural stone, creating an entirely waterproof room that can cater for innovative shower designs and adding functionality to walls and floors. If you have an older property, installing a wet room is a great way to give it a new lease of life. If installed properly and treated regularly, it can even increase the value of your property.
A lot of bathrooms have tiled walls, which often use grouting. While this looks clean and attractive initially, as time goes on, the grouting can become dirty and affect the appeal of the bathroom. With quartz wall panels, this problem is eliminated, as quartz requires minimal maintenance to retain its classy appearance.
Sinks and Worktops
The sinks and worktops in your bathroom form a huge component of the room’s overall appearance, so it is important that you get the design of them absolutely perfect to ensure your bathroom looks its best at all times. Quartz is a fantastic choice of material for this purpose, thanks to its unique, clean appearance and easy maintenance. Whether you want a subtle shade or a brighter, more striking colour choice, quartz can cater for your tastes whilst making sure you don’t have to compromise on functionality.
There are a whole host of benefits that quartz can bring to your bathroom, whether you use it in large quantities or sparingly throughout the space. As a material, it is easy to clean (soap and water will do the job perfectly), long lasting and available in a wide variety of colours and patterns that make it easy on the eye as well as easy to take care of!
