Why are Freestanding Stone Washbasins So Unique And Impressive?

We looked at free-standing Lux4home™ stone sinks, which are definitely not the same as those produced by other companies. These stone sinks always represent the highest quality and standard. Placing two sinks next to each other (one from this manufacturer, the other from someone else) allows you to see the differences with the naked eye, even for someone with no experience. This is simply visible to the naked eye, says a person who imports such products from several manufacturers, but in the end the customer decides anyway.

How To Check The Uniqueness Of Natural Stone Sinks?

An important factor to consider when determining the quality of stone sinks is their price. Yes, the price. A low price may indicate that the product is not made of real stone. This applies to stone washbasins and stone bathtubs. Many “manufacturers” use stone substitutes or apply artificial coatings on the stone. Instead of a natural raw material, such a product can be formed, for example, from a mixture of concrete, plaster and dye to make the material look authentic. Needless to say, the durability of such a product is drastically reduced, says an importer who has seen more than one thing. Another way to spot a fake sink is to simply touch it. The sound produced by natural stone is different from the sound produced by imitation stone. Concrete sink molds (also known as Terazzo) that imitate natural stone sinks are indeed popular. However, they do not offer the same properties as those made of solid stone.
The last thing you can assess yourself is whether your body feels a stone or something plastic after touching the bathtub or washbasin. If something artificial – then we know that the sink or bathtub has been covered with varnish, not polished, which is a long process, but painted. This won’t work for a long period of time.

Lux4home™ only produces washbasins made exclusively of natural stone, including: marble (several color variants), onyx, andesite and river stone. That’s why you sometimes have to wait up to 2 months for a custom-made stone bathtub. Here you can easily verify the quality of the stone. For example, Onyx washbasins can be illuminated independently by using any light source such as halogen or LED strip. If the washbasin allows light to pass through completely, it means that it is a natural stone and not an adhesive. The added value is that these washbasins are produced in many sizes, shapes and types of stone, which can also be personalized. The customer decides whether the custom-made washbasin is to be reserved only for him or for his company, so that no other person can purchase the same model. Here, as we learn, the interesting thing is that they were the only ones to produce probably the largest natural stone bathtub in the world, which was as much as 350 cm long.

The scope of use of such washbasins goes far beyond the ordinary home bathroom – they can be used in SPAs, hotels, drinking water fountains and many others. Stone bathtubs are used both indoors and outdoors, providing perfect cooling on hot summer evenings when the bathtub is installed on the terrace or in the garden.
