A bluestone bathtub | Carrières du Hainaut

Opting for a bluestone bathtub means you’re investing in a top-quality addition to your bathroom. Not only does bluestone’s natural hardness ensure you get to enjoy your beautiful bath for a long time to come, the water also forms lovely, pearly drops on the surface whenever you’re taking a soak (due to the non-porous properties of the stone). Moreover, bluestone retains the temperature of its environment. Thanks to these properties, combined with the authentic appearance of this natural material, it’s pure bliss to enter the bathroom. But perhaps most important of all: having originated in the sea, bluestone comes fully into its own when carved into a gorgeous bathtub.

Bluestone in the bathroom

There are countless ways of incorporating bluestone into your bathroom. Not only is Blue Stone from Hainaut ideal for baths, it also makes for the perfect floor tiles, bathroom furniture and wall cladding. That way, your tub will form a harmonious whole with the rest of the bathroom. Or, if you’re fond of contrasts, you can opt for a bluestone bath and sink while decorating the rest of the bathroom with wooden elements. Combining bluestone and wood will give your bathroom a  wellness vibe, allowing you to completely unwind at the end of those busy days.

Opting for a bluestone bathtub

Next to looking beautiful, a bluestone bathtub must of course be both safe and comfortable to use. In that respect, you can’t go wrong with an EnoSkin finish. Slightly granulated, EnoSkin gives you a firm grip when you step into the bath, yet at the same time the material feels wonderfully soft to the touch. Another option worth considering is Blue Flamed, a type of finish that is slip-resistant as well, thanks to its naturally textured surface. Blue Flamed is also less quick to show lime residue. Do you prefer a smooth surface? Be sure to check out the even finish of Light Blue Honed.

How to clean your bluestone bathtub

The biggest advantage of bluestone? It’s very easy to maintain. Because bluestone is non-porous, it hardly gets dirty – even if you use your bathroom intensively. Simply rinsing the tub with clean water after you’ve taken a bath suffices. For more thorough cleaning (indispensable from time to time, as with all bathtubs), just add a little natural soap, such as Marseille soap flakes, to the water and you’re all set.
