Natural stone washbasins
Natural stone washbasins - luxury for your bathroom
In our hectic and fast-paced times, when we have to combine the demands of a demanding job with daily household and family tasks, we often long for a little time out in a place where we can be all to ourselves. Some people go to a wellness hotel for this and spend a weekend in peace and seclusion. Others try to integrate these little time-outs into their everyday lives. A nice place for a bit of arriving at oneself is the bathroom, because here we can relax with a full bath or invigorate ourselves under a tingling shower. Extensive body care rituals such as an exfoliating scrub, a face mask, a hair treatment or a thorough cream application from head to toe also take place in the bathroom. The place where we engage in body care with leisure and care should also visually make us want to linger. Therefore, the design of the bathroom is often given a lot of attention. The bathtub, shower and toilet are chosen with care and in such a way that they meet all the requirements and preferences of the residents. When it comes to bathroom furniture, personal taste is the deciding factor. Here, washbasins, vanity units and bathroom tall cabin ets made of natural materials are highly popular. Natural stone such as marble, river stone or granite are often combined with local woods.
Natural stone washbasins: vivid surfaces and perfect comfort
Many types of natural stone are very suitable for sinks. A washbasin made of natural stone exudes natural charm and at the same time is a contemporary and modern bathroom element. With a washbasin made of natural stone, you get a high-quality and expressive piece of furniture in your bathroom. At Spa Ambiente you can find natural stone washbasins in a wide variety of designs, sizes and colors. There are models made of polished granite, matt polished bluestone, light travertine or expressive marble. Washbasins made of natural stone benefit when combined with a bathroom vanity unit with drawers or doors. This way, you gain much-needed storage space in your bathroom. The drawers and compartments of your vanity base cabinet will hold all the bathroom essentials you use for daily personal hygiene. The natural stone sink will also look really good on a vanity shelf. In this case, however, you do not gain storage space. This is best created with a bathroom tall cabinet, which offers the same advantages as a vanity cabinet. Depending on how much space you have available in your bathroom, one or the other variant is particularly advantageous. Browse Spa Ambiente online or in our local showroom and discover your personal favorite for your private spa among the washbasins made of natural stone.
The right care for your natural stone sink
Since natural stone sinks are not yet so widespread and not so often installed, not so much is known about their care. Some may be deterred from acquiring a natural stone sink by their lack of knowledge about how to care for it, even though he or she actually wants one, or at least finds this type of unusual vanity or sink quite attractive. This can be remedied, because the maintenance of a natural stone sink is easier than you might think. It is not so different from the care of a normal sink. However, the important thing here is to find out if there is a special care product for your natural stone sink. If this is the case, create it and use it according to the manufacturer's instructions. Otherwise, the following rules apply to natural stone sinks: do not use acidic agents in any case, as they cause damage to the surface. Likewise, corrosive agents, chlorine, anti-limescale agents or similarly aggressive products are taboo. In addition, you should regularly wipe your natural stone sink dry, so it remains beautiful and attractive for many years, even with intensive use and corresponding stress. It is very important that you impregnate your natural stone sink before using it for the first time. This impregnation forms a protective layer and thus prevents the formation of stains caused by lime, oil or similar. Dirt can thus be deposited on the surface of your natural stone sink worse and it remains beautiful and clean for a long time. Since natural stone is an inorganic substance, it is naturally relatively resistant to mold growth. If you air your bathroom normally and always wipe the sink dry after use, you won't have to worry about mold forming on your natural stone vanity and will enjoy it for a long time.
