Dec 15, 2021 | Bathroom, House, Venetian Marble Showers

If you haven’t heard the exciting news, we are now offering and installing Venetian Marble Showers here at Bad Lizard Granite & Quartz! Venetian Marble showers are easy to clean, simple to maintain, and fast to install, making them an optimal choice over your typical tile and grout showers. Read on to learn more about the advantages of Venetian Marble.


Venetian Marble shower surrounds provide the “wow-factor” that will allow your bathroom to feel and look luxurious. These shower panels are manufactured equivalently to a Quartz countertop process, except this material’s primary genetic makeup is chipped marble. As a result, it is lightweight and durable and can be installed over any material — but the preferred methods are drywall or plywood.

Gone are the days of outdated, dull and drab tile! At Bad Lizard Granite & Quartz, our Venetian Marble comes in 12 striking color options that we can match to your space’s color scheme and overall design. These colors include Lhasa, Coco Emperador, Vanilla Sky, Melange, Polar White, Swiss Blanco, Tibetan Beige, Bisque, Milano Beige, Blanco Perlato, Iridium Gray and Champagne Limestone. Samples of these colors can easily be seen in our showroom. Please keep in mind that we are only offering colors that we have in stock and ready to go due to current supply issues. 


The timing is one common pain point of the typical tile and grout installation process. Typically, you have to plan to be without a bathroom for a few days so the prep work, plumbing, tile placement, grouting and drying can all occur. However, waiting for your shower to be complete is not an issue with our Venetian Marble shower panels; the installation process is a breeze! After you or your contractor install the shower pan or tub, the Bad Lizard Granite & Quartz team takes over from there. 

Our expert staff installs the Venetian Marble sheets against the wall. Then, have your plumber finish, and you can enjoy your new shower — it’s that simple! The templating takes one day, which is when our team will visit to take measurements of the shower and ensure the unit will fit properly, and the installation can be completed in one day. Your shower can be completely functional the day after installation, provided your plumbing is hooked up.


Cleaning showers is a hated chore by many, and for a good reason! Scrubbing grout is not only time-consuming and challenging but getting into the corners and crevices can make your fingers cramp and cause a painful backache after a while. Not to mention, grout is nearly impossible to keep spotless because of its material. 

I like cleaning my bathroom,” said no one ever — that is until they met the easy and convenient upkeep and maintenance of the Venetian Marble shower surrounds! Imagine this – a quick spray down with your favorite bathroom cleaner and a steady swipe from a squeegee. And just like that, your shower is clean. You no longer have to scrub until your fingers cramp to get those tough grout lines cleaned or have to worry about mold and grime build-up in hard-to-reach places. The Venetian Marble is effortless to care for and maintain. 


Picture this, after a few years of constant usage and wear-and-tear from your tile and grout shower, a few pieces of tile pop off. Maybe you’ve even tried to glue them back on yourself. Or, your grout lines have started to stain black. Or, your caulking is beginning to wear, and your shower is no longer waterproof. These are all issues that homeowners may run into with your typical tile and grout showers. 

At Bad Lizard, we have many accessories to choose from for your shower, including risers and curbs. The riser and curb make the shower easy to clean, so there is no scrubbing, mildew or mold. We can install the riser and curb on a shower pan or a custom, tiled floor. In addition, before your shower walls go up, our team bends metal into each corner that connects to the shower or tub basin. The shower walls inlay inside the bent channel, ensuring that no water damage will occur if the caulking ever breaks down over time, making our Venetian Marble fail-proof, waterproof and crack-proof. 


With its easy maintenance, a wide variety of color options and a fast and straightforward installation process, it is no wonder that Venetian Marble has become such a popular material for shower surrounds.
