Why Everyone is Leaning Towards Venetian Marble Showers

Nov 11, 2022 | Bathroom

Venetian marble showers have been all the talk recently, and for good reason! If you’re unfamiliar with Venetian marble showers and all of their benefits, you’re probably wondering what all the buzz is about. Compared to their counterparts, these showers have a lot to offer, here we tell you why Venetian showers aren’t just a trend…they’re here to stay! 

What Are Venetian Marble Showers?

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.

Venetian marble showers are a breeze to keep clean compared to all other shower types. There’s no need to worry about scrubbing the grout between tiles. Venetian showers are also incredibly stain resistant, so you will never have to deal with the unsightly discoloration you see with other showers. 


With numerous options, such as bench seats, corner shelves, niches, grab bars, and glass doors, our Venetian Marble shower surrounds are fully customizable to provide the function you deserve and match your space’s color scheme and design.

Easy Installation and Reliability

While tile installation can be a painstaking process that lasts for days, Venetian marble goes up in no time. Once templating has been done and your contractor has set up the shower pan or tub, installation can be done in one day. You will be using your shower the very next day as long as your plumbing has been hooked up.

With Venetian Marble, you’ll never again have to worry about unsightly chipping tile or grout. Marble is extremely durable, so you can have peace of mind that your marble will last for many years. 

This also means you will never have to stress about leaks from your shower either. 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.
