Benefits of Quartz Bathroom Vanities
Serpentine natural stone, also commonly referred to as Vermont Verde Antique, has been a favorite material for both interior and exterior uses for over 100 years. This distinctive natural stone offers the classic beauty of lighter colored marble with the hardness and functionality of granite. The semi-metallic reflective deep green pools accented by sweeping and swirling veins ranging from white to dark green make serpentine vanities a show-stopping piece for your bathroom.
In addition to its unique, dramatic style and look, serpentine bathroom vanities are exceptionally resistant to heat, stains and etching by acids. As a semi-porous stone, serpentine is a smart choice for the bathroom. It has low absorption, while the high flexural strength ensures it maintains its structural integrity. When polished, serpentine provides a warm, brilliant shine, and the stone can also be honed or brushed for a more muted and formal appeal.
Things to Consider About Serpentine Vanities
Perhaps the most important factor to weigh about choosing serpentine is that no two slabs will look the same. The natural formation process accounts for the one-of-a-kind patterning and color variations that ensure you won’t see the exact countertops in your home or business anywhere else. Still, if you’re looking for products that are perfectly uniform, this may not be the right choice for you.
Serpentine is a relatively hard semi-precious stone that’s still susceptible to some scratching and chipping. However, there are far fewer risks of damage in the bathroom as opposed to the kitchen where knives and other tools and appliances see heavy use. While lesser known than marble and granite, serpentine is typically in the same price range as most other sought-after natural stone materials.
Maintaining Serpentine Bathroom Countertops
One of the most desirable aspects of natural stone countertops is low upkeep requirements. In most cases, dust and dirt — including makeup and soap and toothpaste residue — will wipe away with some warm water on a soft cloth or paper towel. When using a cleaning agent, most common household or natural stone cleaners will do the trick. Serpentine needs to be sealed every one to two years to protect it from staining.
Pricing Serpentine Vanities
The cost of natural stone varies significantly between types, sizes and project specifications. The higher the quality of the slab and the greater complexity of the design, the more the piece tends to cost.
