Lightweight Marble for Your Bathroom

Your bathroom sometimes becomes a secret hideaway from the chaos of your house. Escaping for a long bath or shower can be the therapy you need after a long day or week. Imagine turning your bathroom into a marble palace full of luxury and comfort. That can include marble floors, countertops, bathtub surrounds and showers. Now there’s a way to add marble to your bathroom renovation project without the weight or installation challenges that come with heavy marble slabs.

Marble – Advantages and Challenges

Marble is a stunning natural stone that works well in bathrooms, which involve water and steam, holding up better than other materials to such conditions. It’s clean, easy to maintain, and offers a sleek design.

However, as with natural stone, it can be heavy – so heavy in fact that it is difficult to work with and must be cut down into small panels to install. This means that there will be grout lines, which can be unattractive and require frequent cleaning. To reduce these challenges, there is an alternative that is lightweight and offers the same beauty without the installation and cleaning hassle.

An Innovative Stone Solution for Bathrooms

We take a thin panel of marble and apply a fiberglass or aluminum composite material (ACM) backing to the natural stone. This process ensures that the marble is strong and durable, but is light in weight, making these panels the ideal choice for installation in your bathroom. These panels weigh approximately 80 percent less than solid marble slabs, yet have 60 times the impact strength.

Our panels have been tested and verified for their seismic strength. They also can withstand all types of climates, offering long-lasting beauty for your master or guest bathroom.

The cost of labor to install these panels is reduced because of their lightweight and quick installation time. And, with our shower kits, the installation process is even more efficient.

However, as an ecologically sound option, you can also feel that you are doing the right thing for the environment. That’s because fewer trips are required to get the materials to your house, reducing emissions. Also, because these only use a thin strip of natural stone, you are using fewer natural resources.

Marble Selection

We have a great selection of beautiful marble choices in terms of an array of colors, patterns, and finishes. There is sure to be one that fits your bathroom project and interior design.

Enjoy the Low Maintenance

With no grout lines, there is nothing to worry about in terms of cleaning or discoloring over time. Instead, all you have to do is gently wipe these panels down and have them resealed once a year. Less housework is always a real advantage!
