Available Natural Stone Colors

In predicting the variances found in natural stone, one can only predict common background colors, or overall color shades. As a product of nature, it is these variances that identify natural stone from manmade stones; it is what sets natural stone apart from other design surfaces. When looking at a small sample or swatch color keep in mind this is only a very small representation of the entire panel, you will have lighter and darker areas and veining that may not be apparent in the sample color.

Stone Shower Options

From the smallest, most intimate showers to larger, luxurious, multiple shower head and shower bench configurations, our natural stone panels and accessories can be used to create your ideal get-away in your own home.

Accessories include options such as matching mosaic floor tiles, a variety of decorative inlays and tiles to fit your décor needs. Curved soap dishes or corner shelves add to the convenience of your shower. A recessed two compartment niche provides in shower storage for shampoo, body wash, and other personal care shower items.

Cabinet Transformations also uses the top of the line shower pan assembly when installing natural stone showers, which is designed to create a fully waterproof, maintenance free shower assembly without a mortar bed.

Care and Maintenance

Your stone shower should be sealed by your Certified Installer when initially installed. Although it is waterproof due to the engineered support backer, however, the surface is real natural stone slab, so sealing upon installation is still required.

Make sure you find out what sealer they are using so you know when (and if) you ever need to reseal the stone. Basic sealers can be 1x per year if in a heavy use area, and then there are high-end sealers that have 15, 20, 30 years before needing resealing! So the range is broad.

For your stone shower, a simple squeegee makes a great tool for keeping your stone surfaces clean from soap scum or hard water deposits. Cleaning your stone surface can usually be done simply with a sponge and hot water. That’s it! If you want to use a stone cleaner, some of which have sealer maintenance in them, then there are many available at local hardware stores. You do want to be sure to stay away from regularly cleaning with harsh chemicals – they are not necessary for stone maintenance and may etch the finish of the stone over time. For information on what harsh chemicals to avoid, please see the MIA+BSI, the Natural Stone Institute’s Stone Maintenance Guide. A link is provided below.
