Bathroom Trends: Adding Stone to Your Bathroom Project

Bathrooms should be a place to rejuvenate, especially while soaking in the tub! Often, we associate the outdoors with vacation and relaxation. This can mean the beach, jungle, or forest, but most of the time it includes one recurring element: stone. Using stone in a bathroom brings the outdoors in, and it’s versatile enough to integrate into any design style. Stones usually seen as countertops can be applied on floors, tub surrounds, and more for a unique addition to any bathroom. Larger scale stones such as river rock and pebbles can be used on floors or accent walls. Stones can even function as the main fixtures of your bathroom. See the examples below to get some inspiration for using stone in your bathroom.

River rock doubles as slip-resistant flooring! Upon installation, a clear sealant should be applied. This should make maintenance and cleaning a breeze.

My name is Julia Ritzenthaler, Founder and President of Unique Vanities, started in 2005. I started this business as an extension of our residential remodeling business, which focused on the design and build of custom cabinetry and architectural trim. I also worked as a financial advisor for 10 years at Ameriprise Financial, helping clients make sound money decisions, including budgeting for home improvement expenses. This expertise led me to start Unique Vanities, which offers a handpicked selection of high quality bathroom vanities, sinks, mirrors and more. You can find me most days sitting in Starbucks, my second office, or in my car driving my daughter across Dallas to gymnastics training.
