If you want something more spectacular and more durable than shower enclosures, you should opt for travertine/marble shower trays.

A natural material will always bring a touch of class, creating an authentic atmosphere in any bathroom design you choose. The natural stone is very durable and easy to care for in the long term, however, for taking advantage of its durability it will need a correct treatment. A natural stone shower tray has other features besides durability and easy aftercare. The organic beige shades of "cappuccino" marble convey calm and relaxation, while the “latte” shades of travertine will create your very own piece of heaven. These warm colors are a perfect fit for wood (natural or wenge), but also combined with wrought iron or chromed elements.
Choosing a marble or travertine shower tray for a bathroom decoration project will create an intimate and personal space. It will help you obtain the needed ambient for getting rid of daily stress and taking time for yourself.
7. Ceramic tiles bathroom decoration project
Modern trends include alternatives for bathroom decoration projects you could consider, besides the common ceramic tile. Natural stone is a much more creative and beautiful solution, because a natural material cannot be replaced by any other material.

Nevertheless, the most important aspect would be the natural beauty of stone and the universe brought to your home. Nature has a wide color range available for bathroom decoration projects, but it will particularly provide that most wanted touch of originality.
8. Tips for bathroom decoration based on your style

A bathroom decoration project to match your personality will not be difficult if you know what you want and the space you need. People passionate about trends can have a modern design for their bathroom. These modern bathrooms are highlighted by perfect, straight geometric lines and minimal colors. Nero Marquina Marble is a natural stone that will fit perfectly into your modern bathroom and can be used for flooring or cladding. For furniture you can choose natural colors or gray/black shades with simple design and straight lines, able to optimize your space. This setting can be complemented with some green plants and a natural light for creating the natural atmosphere of your space.
If you have a creative spirit that prefers a free spirit ambience, then vintage should definitely be your choice. Classical elegance, style and natural materials should not miss. Wood for furniture, perhaps Calacatta Lilac marble for flooring and walls, pastel colors, floral elements and vintage accessories. The furniture can be made from a treated old wood, whether you have some elements from your grandmother and you decide to refurbish them, or you can find something to use in antique shops. However, in this setting, the natural stone will find a place of its own and will even bring an added value to your bathroom design.
9. Important aspects in the design of a bathroom
Light and lighting sources
The flooring and walls of a bathroom are not the only elements you need to keep in mind when decorating a bathroom. Light and lighting objects are very important aspects in the design of a bathroom and if the space lacks natural light you will need to find the best solutions for creating this setting with lighting objects. The lighting objects coming from the ceiling are ideal for illuminating the entire room from above and you can even include some in the shower/bathroom area. Considering there is a mirror in every bathroom, a lighting system installed above will be of great help. In the end, you can install a dimmer, for helping you adjust lighting, based on your need and mood.
Plants and natural stone
These two elements are intimately connected with our true nature. A bathroom decoration project can have multiple combinations, yet natural materials transmit positive energy, inducing a state of tranquility and relaxation. Plants and floral elements will balance the bathroom energies, illuminating the bathroom and the small natural stone decorations for bringing you closer to your nature and yourself. A bathroom design is as important as a bathroom decoration.
Each element belonging to this space should have a purpose – whether it is aesthetic or functional and together, can contribute to a positive, relaxing, intimate and personal space. Regardless of design and available space, you should always use natural materials for your bathroom decoration project – the emotion conveyed by natural materials is genuine and unmatched by any other materials. Colors also contribute to your mood, however if you want a relaxation oasis you should use the most natural colors, shades of greys and pastel colors. Besides the bathroom decoration project, natural stone will generate inspiration in your projects, bringing a part of nature’s tranquility into your home.
