Mar­ble is still very much the ma­te­rial of the mo­ment, thanks to its nat­u­ral el­e­gance and sub­tle pat­tern­ing. ‘Mar­ble is a tra­di­tional ma­te­rial to use in bath­rooms, al­ways cre­at­ing an el­e­gant and time­less feel. Im­pres­sive, large slabs of­fer a great choice in shower ar­eas,’ says Man­darin Stone’s Louisa Mor­gan. ‘re­cently, we’ve seen a mod­ern twist to this clas­sic ma­te­rial, with the use of stylish mo­saics in an ar­ray of de­signs, such as hexagon, geo­met­ric, her­ring­bone and so on.’ And there’s good news if wall-to-wall mar­ble is out of your bud­get. ‘Faux-mar­ble porce­lains are now ex­tremely re­al­is­tic and of­fer a range of for­mats and fin­ishes to­gether with the ease of not hav­ing to seal the stone,’ says Mor­gan. While clas­sic white mar­ble – think car­rara – is al­ways a win­ner, if you’re af­ter some­thing that’s a bit dif­fer­ent, look out for non-white and grey types of mar­ble, such as green and pink vari­a­tions.
