A lot of homeowners believe that natural means better. However, when it comes to bathroom remodeling, this isn’t always the case. For instance, natural marble is prized for their unique patterns, but when it comes to durability and maintenance, engineered marble shower surfaces are arguably a smarter choice.
The bathroom remodeling contractors at Elite Bathrooms LuxStone™ of Long Island lists the advantages of installing engineered marble shower surfaces.
Resistance to Stains
Porous surfaces have thousands of tiny holes that make them easy to stain. Not to mention they’re vulnerable to microbial growth. Fortunately, engineered marble surfaces have low porosity, which means they’re stain-resistant and easy-to-maintain.
Wide Range of Designs
Natural marble shower surfaces are a good choice if you want to add a bit of personality to your bathroom. However, if you prefer a more uniform look, engineered marble shower surfaces would be a better choice. The controlled manufacturing process ensures uniformity in engineered marble in terms of its shade and size. To learn more about your design options, consult one of your local bathroom conversion contractors.
Engineered marble is primarily composed of marble dust and chips. Other components include resin binder and pigments as well as recycled waste products generated during mining operations. Since engineered marble uses these by-products, waste is minimized.
Some homeowners mistakenly assume that engineered marble is inferior to natural marble because the former is made of waste products. However, engineered marble shower surfaces are very durable. They’re so durable that they can resist scratches.
What Makes LuxStone Shower Surfaces Different?
Keep in mind that the durability of the engineered marble depends on the quality of the material used to manufacture it. That’s why Luxstone shower walls are made from American-sourced Sylacauga marble and durable fiber strands. To learn more about the premium features of Luxstone shower surfaces, consult a remodeler from one of your local bathroom renovation companies.
