What is Spa Ambiente doing in terms of sustainability?

We specialize in natural stone products made of river stone, marble and granite. In addition, we distribute high-quality bathroom furniture made of solid wood in the best manufacturing quality. Our products come from sustainable and responsible manufacturing. For our bathroom furniture, we primarily rely on solid wood, a large part of which is obtained from sustainable forestry. In 2020, we have already manufactured 55% of our bathroom furniture locally. The wood used in the process comes from the Osnabrück area and we are working to ensure that this local share continues to grow.

More information

Our articles made of river stone come mostly from the island of Java - Indonesia. Already since 2001 we buy and manufacture our products there in close cooperation with the manufactures. With the origin of the raw materials decides the quality of the goods, therefore we attach importance to the best possible blanks with natural stones and pay attention very exactly to the fine differences in the purchase. Our furniture is made of teak, oak and walnut. The teak wood used, comes from reforestable sources, obtained in compliance with strict environmental aspects. The sources are regularly audited by governmental organizations for compliance with the criteria. SVLK/V-Legal Certificate: The law "European Union Timber Regulation" came into force on March 03, 2013 and prevents the use of illegally felled timber. The "V-Legal" seal means that the wood products are proven to be made of wood from the state forestry authority. The solid oak and walnut woods are sourced exclusively from EU countries, ensuring short transport routes. The protection of natural resources thus represents an important concern for Spa Ambiente.

Production conditions and quality


Through regular, personal visits to the manufactories, as well as constant and personal contact, we know about the working conditions in the production facilities. We buy exclusively directly from the manufacturers and not at trade fairs, so we know exactly about the origin of our goods. To deliver a good quality is a matter of course for us. All items are handmade and carefully controlled by different employees. Small imperfections are difficult to avoid in natural products, which are made by hand. This emphasizes the uniqueness of our products and makes the difference to mass-produced items.

Materials and Care


Questions about a wide variety of materials & rock types


What is river stone?

River stone is an extremely robust natural stone from the tropical rivers of Indonesia. The often very imposing natural stone erratic blocks serve as the basis for natural stone sinks in different sizes and colorings. These colorings are created by the natural oxidation of the stone. River stone sinks are very easy to maintain and are available in many different sizes. This natural stone is excellent for making sinks, wash bowls, hand wash basins and countertop sinks due to its hardness and texture.


What is granite?

Granites are formed by the solidification of magma within the Earth's crust, usually at a depth of more than 2 km below the Earth's surface. In most cases, granites are not formed from the liquid material of the Earth's mantle, but from molten material of the lower crust. For the formation of magma chambers, periods of 10 - 15 million years must be reckoned with. The diversity of granite is enormous. By default, it can be said that natural granite stone is mostly gray, but there are also black granite (e.g. Nero Assoluto) or granites with special color inclusions. Granites belong to the most frequent rocks within the continental earth crust. They are found on all continents.

What is marble?

All decorative and polishable limestones are called marble. They are largely composed of calcium carbonate. This calcium compound is of organic and inorganic origin: calcareous deposits, such as coral reefs with the biocoenosis of plants and mollusks from the primordial oceans, have been deposited in different layers of the earth over millions of years by tectonic movements. Where this calcareous rock was pushed into the interior of the earth, it came under high pressure and had to withstand extreme temperatures. The limestone crystallized and over millions of years became true crystalline marble. Marble is one of the oldest natural stones used in interior design. It comes in many colors, veining, textures and degrees of hardness. Depending on the quality, it is used differently.

What is Corian®?

The solid surface material Corian®, which is manufactured by the renowned company DuPont, is suitable for use in the bathroom due to its wide range of positive properties like no other material. The Original Corian® has a non-porous surface, which creates an antibacterial property. The Original Corian® from DuPont inspires with its longevity and high durability. The original integrity of the material is thus always maintained - even if minor scratches or damage should occur. In this case, fine sandpaper or a scouring pad (Scotch-Brite) are sufficient to remove them in no time at all. The Corian® is a through-dyed material that we offer in Glacier White (white) and Deep Nocturne (black).

What is senstone®?

The solid surface material senstone® can be perfectly combined with the high-quality furniture made of natural materials, thanks to the matt, glossy and soft to the touch surface. Our products made of senstone® are resistant, absolutely UV stable (according to ISO 4892-2:2013) and are offered with a warranty of five years.


What makes Maxfine tiles stand out?

Compared to other large format tiles and natural stone large slabs, Maxfine tiles are very easy to process or cut. Maxfine tiles are also characterized by the fact that, thanks to their ceramic surface, they are very durable, hygienic and absolutely easy to clean. They are classically often used as floor or wall tiles, but also serve as wall cladding, countertops and vanity tops, furniture surfaces and much more.


Surface finishing


What does sandblasted mean?

Sandblasted means that the natural stone is sandblasted with a mixture of different grains, consisting of quartz-free substances. In the first step, the compressed air is cooled and dried, and then blasted onto the surface. Depending on the blasting material and the strength of the treatment, a rougher or finer surface can be achieved. The surface of the stone is refined by the sandblasting and given the desired effect. The sandblasted surface subsequently appears somewhat duller, but retains the characteristic radiance of the natural stone.

What does brushed mean?

The surface of the stone is treated with special brushes, in the bristles of which special abrasive grains are incorporated. The treatment results in a very fine, smoothed and silky-matte surface with a very special feel: the stone feels extremely supple. Nevertheless, a brushed stone still retains its natural surface structure at the base, whereas this is not the case with the strongly smoothing methods of polishing and grinding.

What does oiled mean?

Specially for solid wood furniture, an oiled surface is very attractive because it leaves the raw material wood its positive properties. The oil penetrates extremely well into the pores of the wood, but does not close them, so that the wood can continue to breathe. In addition, the oil stimulates the wood's own color pigments, so that the color character of the wood is particularly emphasized. Oiled solid woods are also characterized by a velvety feel.

Our wood species used


Our focus is on wooden bathroom furniture - walnut, plain/natural oak, wild oak and teak wood can be found in numerous designs and finishes.

Questions about the care of our products


How to clean and maintain river stone sink?

The smooth surface of natural stone sinks is extremely susceptible to acidic cleaning agents and chlorine. These attack the natural stone and destroy it permanently. The use of unsuitable cleaning agents will harm the natural stone sink and can cause extreme damage to the surface of the natural stone. It is recommended to regularly protect the surface of the wax basin from water and dirt by rubbing it with wax. Only neutral cleaners or cleaners labeled for natural stone should be used to clean the sinks.

How to clean and maintain granite sinks?

Granite thanks a little care. If you use a wiping care suitable for natural stone when cleaning, you care for the stone and extend the life of an impregnation. Impregnation is not a must, but a recommendation, because it protects granite from stains penetrating into the stone. Therefore, when applying an impregnation, the appearance does not change, the advantage is that liquids and dirt can no longer penetrate into the natural stone. However, if there are stains that are not so easy to remove, basic cleaner will help.

How to clean and maintain marble sinks?

A marble sink should be rubbed with wax and polished every now and then. The natural stone sink must be completely dry when processing with wax. A very small amount of care product is sufficient. The wax is best applied to the natural stone sink with a soft cloth and rubbed in. Chlorine, anti-lime agents, brightening solvents, as well as sodium hydroxide and potassium hydroxide should never be used to care for marble, as these agents can severely damage the natural stone.

How do I clean and maintain Corian®?

Surfaces made of Corian® can usually be cleaned easily with a common, mild abrasive cleaner and a scouring pad (Scotch-Brite). In this way, soiling can be easily removed. Damage caused by accidental mishandling can also normally be repaired directly on site without having to replace the material.

How do I clean and maintain senstone®?

Sinks and bathtubs made of senstone® can usually be cleaned easily with a common, mild abrasive cleaner and a scouring pad (Scotch-Brite). In this way, soiling can be easily removed. Damage caused by accidental mishandling can also normally be repaired directly on site without having to replace the material.

How do I clean and maintain painted wood surfaces?

Proper care will extend the life of your furniture. Our bathroom furniture is sealed with environmentally friendly and high quality lacquers. This brings the best possible protection and you do not have to repeat this at regular intervals, as when using oil. Clean your furniture regularly with a damp cloth, wiping in the direction of the grain to best remove dust from the pores. Use soft, smooth cloths for cleaning, not microfiber cloths! Add only a little detergent, or very mild, acid-free cleaners to the rinsing water. For heavy soiling, you can also use color-neutral glass cleaner, if necessary dilute with water in advance. Ensure that the room is adequately ventilated. Liquids must not be allowed to stand on the surface and must be removed immediately to avoid swelling of the material and consequential damage. Remove aggressive ingredients in cosmetics immediately. If furniture comes into contact with ingredients, some of which are bleaching or greasy, they may alter the surface. Therefore, avoid contact or wipe it off immediately after contact.

How do I clean and maintain oiled wood surfaces?

Our oiled bathroom furniture and vanity tops are sealed with Rubio Monocoat 2K oil, which encloses the fibers of the wood, protecting the surface against water splashes. A consistent ecological approach combined with cutting-edge technology ensures that Rubio Monocoat oils are environmentally friendly, easy to use and of the highest quality. For maintenance, we recommend the Rubio MONOCOAT Easy Care Kit Furniture, matching the color tone you use. The box contains all the necessary products for cleaning, refreshing and maintenance.

How to care for Maxfine tiles?

General tips


For large, important surfaces with high traffic, which are therefore also subject to heavy soiling, the use of automatic cleaning machines with suction of the cleaning liquid is essential, since they not only allow deep cleaning, but also constantly remove the liquid with the dirt, avoiding the formation of any dirt or grease films, which are always difficult to remove. On the FMG materials, can be used all the detergents on the market in the desired concentration, with the exception of fluoric acid (HF) or similar products, according to UNI-EN 176.


Maintenance and care


Thanks to the production process used (high firing temperature, high quality raw material and sintering), the surface of FMG materials is practically completely water repellent (minimal moisture absorption). Therefore, dirt cannot penetrate the surface, but only needs to be removed from the surface. It is not advisable to use waxy cleaning agents or products for waxing for this purpose, to avoid the formation of oily layers.
