The Pros and Cons of Tiling a Shower with Natural Stone
The beauty of natural stone is unsurpassed, but the look can come at a cost beyond the initial expense when it’s not properly cared for. With the right construction and a few simple tools, a natural stone bathroom can be easily maintained long term.
Integrating natural stone into a bathroom will quickly take it from blah to beautiful, but some homeowners shy away from natural stone for reasons beyond the extra cost. Natural stone has a reputation for being both higher maintenance and more easily damaged than synthetic materials.
While natural stone tiles and slabs must be pre-treated and regularly sealed to maintain their beauty and prevent mildew, the process has been streamlined so that busy homeowners can handle the extra effort. At the end of the day, most homeowners agree it’s worth it.
