Using Stoneyard Natural Thin Stone Veneer
Wishing your bathroom can feel like you’re stepping into a spa? Natural stone veneer is the key to transforming that space into a peaceful sanctuary.
One of the biggest advantages of using natural stone veneer in your bathroom is the wide range of options available. From color to size and shape, there is a stone to suit every style and preference. Whether you prefer a sleek and modern look or a more traditional and timeless design, natural stone can be customized to fit your vision.
Natural stone not only brings a touch of sophistication to your bathroom, but it’s also tough as nails and built to last. Unlike other materials, such as ceramic or porcelain tiles, natural stone is incredibly resilient and can withstand the test of time. With proper care and maintenance, your natural stone bathroom will continue to look stunning for years to come.
Speaking of maintenance, keeping your natural stone bathroom clean is essential to maintain its beauty and integrity. Luckily, cleaning natural stone is relatively simple. We’ve gathered some cleaning tips and tricks for both installers and homeowners to help you with your next bathroom renovation.
Bathroom Stone Veneer Installation and Cleaning Tips for Masons:
When installing natural stone veneer to a bathroom wall or shower, you should treat the process similar to an outdoor stone installation. In a bathroom, the natural stone will be exposed to moisture. We recommend waterproofing your surface using Laticrete’s Air and Water Barrier before you install the stone.
After you go through the installation process, you will need to clean the stone. Prosoco Safety Klean is a safer alternative to traditional acidic cleaners. Within 14-28 days of installation, use this cleaner on the natural stone veneer to get rid of any excess mortar, dust, or dirt.
Bathroom Cleaning Tips for Homeowners:
Now that your natural stone bathroom is complete, you will need to keep it clean to preserve its natural beauty. We recommend you choose a gentle, balanced pH cleaner: Harsh chemicals can damage the surface of your natural stone. Prosoco 2010 All Surface Cleaner is a gentle cleaner specifically designed for stone surfaces. Avoid using vinegar or acidic cleaners, as they can etch the stone.
- Avoid abrasive tools: Scrubbing your natural stone with abrasive brushes or scouring pads can scratch the surface. Instead, use a soft cloth or soft bristled brush to gently clean the stone.
- Wipe up spills immediately: Accidents happen, but it’s essential to clean up spills as soon as possible to prevent staining. Use a soft cloth or paper towel to blot the spill, rather than wiping it, to avoid spreading it further.
- Avoid using harsh chemicals: As mentioned earlier, harsh chemicals can damage natural stone. Avoid using bleach, ammonia, or other harsh cleaners on your stone surfaces.
With these easy-to-follow cleaning tips, you can make sure your natural stone bathroom keeps looking stunning and spotless. Using natural stone veneer in your bathroom is a great option, not just for its enduring appeal but also because it’s durable, and let’s be honest – who wouldn’t want their bathroom to feel like a posh spa? So go ahead, indulge in the elegance of natural stone and create a bathroom oasis that you’ll never want to leave.
