We recently completed our first installation of a Verona Shower system with our partner Euro Stone Craft. The Verona Shower is a distinctive marble shower wall and shower floor material. The shower and bath surfaces are an engineered marble – made from recycled natural marble aggregate (95%) and filler combined with a special polyester thermal set resin binder.
The stunning beauty of Verona marble shower walls will transform your bath into a luxury spa. The production and use of engineered marble products offers an ecological solution which is very attractive and economical. Verona marbles are more uniform in color, stronger and less porous than natural marble. This stone is available in 21 colors.
For our client, Mr. W in Fairfax, we chose the color Botticino. Mr. W is of the baby boomer generation and was looking for a maintenance free solution for his bathroom. As Mr. W had recently fell while trying to step into his tub to take a shower, we removed the tub and made the entry barrier free. We converted his tub/shower to a shower only stall with a seat and corner shelves for storage. We were able to fabricate everything, including the walls, shower floor, seat and shelves with the Verona Shower marble.
Mr. W wanted his new shower to be as maintenance free as possible. Verona Shower marble, unlike tile, does not have grout lines to clean or a place for mold & mildew to grow. The shower floor is slip-resistant, waterproof, and grout-free – offering a luxurious look, safety, durability, and ease of maintenance. The floor surface is specially crafted in a leather texture, making the floor slip resistant.
Each Verona shower system is custom manufactured – like Mr. W’s. We created a custom space for him within his existing bathtub footprint that included a seat and corner shelves for storage. We were also able to mount grab bars on the walls for him.
Verona marble can also be fabricated for a vanity top, tub deck, and floor tiles – the possibility for design options are endless.
I really enjoyed working with a new product – while it isn’t new to the market, it was new to FA Design Build. Our partner, Euro Stone Craft worked hand in hand with us to make sure this project went off without a hitch. Mr. W is so pleased with his new shower – he loves the luxurious marble look, ease of maintenance, and newly found stability and safety in his showering experience.
