Silestone & Granite Vanities, Shower Walls
Friends, rennovating their bathroom, came to our Toronto showroom last week.
We chatted about design options and I showed them our factory with our extensive remnant inventory of granite, silestone and caesarstone.
We discussed the use of Silestone slabs on the shower walls. Silestone has microban technology which inhibits the growth of mold and mildew and odor causing bacteria. It's a great product to use, particularly in a shower or as a bathroom countertop. In addition, the use of granite or quartz for shower walls and backsplashes eliminates or minimizes the need for grout. Cleaning becomes dream work!
When I showed them pictures of large slabs of granite or Silestone on fireplaces and quartz shower walls, that was all it took. They were impressed with the beauty of the large pieces and immediately decided to have their bathroom finished this way. It really does show off the beauty of quartz or granite.
In addition to picking silestone for the shower, they chose granite for a seat and a shelf in the shower. Mixing these two materials can produce a very unique and appealing result. All of the materials came from our remnant inventory at incredible savings.
The whole project will be completed in a few weeks and I'll have pictures to share when the project is done.
If anyone has used large pieces of granite, silestone or caesarstone in a project please share with us pictures of your project. Of course, if someone has other unique design ideas that they would like to share with us, we greatly appreciate it.
