Cultured Marble for Your Bathroom

By: Danny Lipford

I’ve found that cultured marble makes a great, affordable solution for showers, countertops, and sinks in a bathroom. It’s more substantial than fiberglass or acrylic shower stalls and less expensive than tile.

In addition, cultured marble is a durable material that holds up well over time, though it can chip and develop burn marks if hot items are left on the surface. Watch this video to see how it’s made.

    Absolutely, Linda!
    Whether you choose an undermount sink or a self-rimming (or drop-in) sink is up to you.

    Good luck!

    Re: cultered marble shower floor

    My first problem was hard water stains so I called the company that installed the floor, no longer under warranty. They said to pour vinegar on the whole floor. I did that a couple months ago and now I have white stains all over from the vinegar. I have tried many things but stains don’t budge,

    I have a white cultured marble sink that has brownish stains in it for some reason? I noticed that there are some hairline scratches where the stains are. Is there anyway to remove the stains?

    Hi, Linda!

    Absolutely. One manufacturer is Giani Countertop Transformations, which can be applied to cultured marble.
    Thanks for your question!

    Can you resurface cultured marble? I used a paint kit one time to cover old formica and make it look like “granite” – it was a surprisingly good look. Is there anything that can be done for cultured marble? I have some 40 year old molded bathroom sink/countertop combos and a bathtub to match.

    Hi, Allan!

    We would clean it thoroughly and consider using gel gloss to fill in the cracks and provide the support that you need to continue using the tub.

    Gel gloss is available at any home center.

    Good luck!

    I have been searching all over the Internet trying to purchase a cultured marble shower kit online, but have had no luck. Would you possibly be able to help me locate a manufacturer or dealer?
