What Do You Know About Onyx?

Dec 17, 2015 | Natural Stone, Onyx, Surface One

Onyx is a highly decorative stone with unique rich patterns and a wide range of color variations. The stunning colors and semi-translucent veining can be back-lit or under-lit to highlight the beauty of the stone. This characteristic makes Onyx a popular choice for wall panels, kitchen islands, and bar tops. Extra care needs to be taken with Onyx countertops because it is more delicate than some other natural stone surfaces.

Surface One fabricated this luxurious piece of Cappuccino Onyx as a wall panel for a glass shower creating a powerful focal point for the master bathroom. The rich hues of the natural Onyx stone are complemented by a coordinating mosaic tile surround. Surface One worked with the remodeling company to create a high impact design that would incorporate the custom shower features.

Onyx is a delicate stone that requires extra care because it can scratch and stain easier than other natural stones, such as granite. Due to its delicate nature, Onyx must be handled with extreme care during fabrication and installation. For this project, Surface One custom fabricated the stone to accommodate custom shower sprayers and controls. Surface One also worked with the remodeler to construct a custom waterproofed subtop that supports the Onyx shower panel and is removable if needed for plumbing repair.

Surface One is highly experienced with fabricating and installing specialty materials such as Onyx.  If glamour and high-end design are your desire, an Onyx countertop or wall panel can add a sophisticated impact to any room.
