If you want to give your bathroom remodel an elegant feel that can be modified to suit a variety of looks, marble is an excellent accent to consider.

Whether you want a bathroom that is modern, traditional, or inspired by your favorite theme, below are some steps that you can take to create the fundamental design aspects of your bathroom remodel—using the beauty of marble as a key feature!

Step 1: Select a Color for Your Shower or Bathtub Base

The color of your replacement bath or replacement shower pan is a subtle yet important feature of your bathroom remodel. Once you have found a color that you like, you can pair your base or bath with a matching marble wall surround. It’s okay to mix and match until you find the right combination for you. First thing first. Here are common shower and tub color options:

  • Almond
  • Biscuit
  • Gray
  • Sandbar
  • White

Step 2: Choose Your Favorite Marble Wall Surround

Most marble walls have a gray or brown base color. Use the main color of your marble wall surround to decide which pairs best with the shower or tub base of your choosing. If you chose a white or gray base, then a gray marble surround will look best. If you went with almond, sandbar, or biscuit, then a brown marble works well. Here are some examples:

  • A Gray Base with a Calcutta Marble Wall Surround
  • A White Base with a Carrara Marble Wall Surround
  • An Almond or Sandbar Base with a Bianco Travertine Wall Surround

Step 3: Enhance Your Style with Accessories

Now that you have your shower base and wall, the next step is to complete your design with custom accessories. This includes your faucets, drains, showerheads, and shower door trim. Polished brass goes well with brown marble features and chrome complements gray and white best.

Step 4: Consider Accessibility Needs

Now is a great time to think about your current and future accessibility needs. Walk-in tubs offer a zero-threshold design that is easier to get in and out of when compared to a high-walled tub. They are also modern and stylish, so there’s nothing wrong with planning ahead, especially if you plan to age in place.
