As time moves on, fashions change and we are now seeing a resurgence of many styles that we thought had disappeared forever. In the world of clothing, vivid colors and flared trousers are coming back into fashion after 40 years away and even cars such as the mini are seeing a rise in popularity. In the world of interior design, marble is the new most desired effect that is wanted throughout the house. The beauty of marble is undeniable and it certainly gives a house a sophisticated look, yet the real beauty also lies in the fact that it is so easy to maintain. Unlike wood, it will not age so badly or wear away through use and is completely safe to use with water (making it ideal for shower walls). The surface is also very smooth which means that if there are any spillages they can be very easily cleared up.
If you are looking to purchase cultured marble shower walls then it is advisable to speak to a plumber before doing so. What must be remembered is that the marble is very hard which makes it very difficult to break through cleanly if something needs to be fixed. It is worth ensuring that any work that needs doing on the pipes or on the shower is done before the installation of the marble. Also, be wary that marble isn’t for everyone; you may not like the style and decide to get rid. However, it has to be said that if you don’t like it, you are in a bit of a minority.
