Specialty accessories made from natural stone can be hard to come by, and the price for individual pieces is quite high. Even when ordered in bulk, shower seats and shower stall corner shelves constructed of travertine or marble usually carry a high price tag. The exception is natural stone products purchased from a direct importer and distributor.
Stonexchange is a Miami-based manufacturer and importer of natural stone tiles, thresholds, window sills, and shower shelves. Our products are of the highest quality and are guaranteed to match the color shade specified on building plans for condominium units. We maintain a huge inventory of these hard-to-find stone accessory pieces, and we offer enormous discounts to our commercial clients. Stonexchange sells primarily to building contractors, flooring product retailers, and home improvement centers.
Shopping For Natural Stone Shower Shelves
Marble and travertine are two of the most popular finishing materials for the bathroom. This is true for new construction as well as remodeling of condos, hotels, and resorts. Shower stalls lined with natural stone are not only elegant in appearance, they are long-lasting and require very little maintenance.
In addition to stone tiles for the bathroom shower walls, most building instructions call for the installation of soap shelves and shower seats made from similar materials. However, finding pre-cut stone products is not always easy, and the search can cause one gigantic headache. These products are often thicker than the normal tile design, making individual pieces obtained for the bathroom shower wall useless for cutting and shaping into soap shelves.
Stonexchange carries several different types of natural marble stone, and for each of these tile, window sill, or threshold styles there is a matching shower shelf and shower seat. These materials are crafted from stone taken from the same quarries as our other fine natural stone products. In other words, finding a perfectly matching color shade is not a problem when the materials are purchased from Stonexchange.
Truly Wholesale Prices On Bulk Orders
Stonexchange operates on a very simple principle. The lowest price on natural stone is found on products that are imported and distributed by the same outfit. Our company has ownership or partnership with quarrying operations in the Mediterranean region, and we oversee the fabrication and transatlantic shipping of all our natural stone products. We do not involve ourselves with middle-level resellers, nor do we sell to other wholesalers.
Instead, Stonexchange offers bulk-quantity shipments of natural stone shower shelves at fantastically low prices, and we sell directly to commercial installers, South Florida area dealers of marble and travertine, and flooring product retailers. This means that anyone needing a sizeable amount of product will enjoy the lowest prices in the industry. This includes subcontractors looking for dozens of pieces to complete a condo project. A new development project may call for the installation of 30-40 shower stalls lined with travertine, and another 30-40 units may require carrara or crema marfil tiles made from marble.
What the subcontractor therefore needs is a crate full of travertine soap shelves, another crate stocked with travertine shower seats, and a crate of cream/beige or white marble soap shelves. Stonexchange can fill such an order with ease because we carry these items in-stock at our South Florida distribution center. We can take a customer order, give an immediate price quote, and have the shipment prepared and on its way to the client in less than two business days.
Premium Quality Natural Stone
Some wholesalers of natural stone products offer very low prices in bulk orders, but care should be taken when the price sounds too good to be true. All too often, travertine advertised at wholesale prices is of an inferior grade, is full of pockmarks, contains holes that have not been filled, and may not be honed or sealed. Travertine that will be used in a shower stall must be of exceptional quality, and must be completely honed and filled. It must be able to withstand contact with water and extremely high atmospheric humidity.
Our superior shower shelves and shower seats are manufactured from the highest grade travertine on the market. Likewise, our marble shower shelves and seats are beautifully crafted from scratch at our overseas fabrication facility. These products are the finest available anywhere at any price, but we offer generous discounts to those who order product in bulk quantities. This is good news for South Florida installation professionals and interior decorating product retailers who need a supply of natural stone corner shower shelves at affordable prices.
Our company manufactures these fine-quality accessories from the same slabs of natural stone that are formed into our thresholds, window sills, and tiles. Our clients can rest easy knowing that a perfect color and style match will be found between shelves, corner curbs, transition saddles, and flooring tiles. We make finding the right product at the right price and enjoyable experience rather than a tension-filled venture.
Stonexchange deals primarily with companies that procure natural stone products for large-scale installation projects. We have studied the building trends carefully, and in turn we stock the most popular and in-demand styles of travertine and marble. We guarantee that the shade of marble shower shelf or shower seat we carry in inventory will match or replace the product specified in the building plans.
Our travertine corner shower shelves are a quarter-circle with a 9-inch radius, and the curved edge has been rounded and beveled. The color is ivory-medium with an average amount of dark splotching. These shelves are sold in crates containing 50 pieces.
Our marble shower shelves are available in White Carrara and Crema Sahara Marfil. Both of these shades are very popular for use in shower stalls, especially here in the South Florida region of the country. These shelves are also 9-inch radius quarter-circular and have a rounded and beveled curved side. These products are also packed in crates containing 50 individual pieces.
We also carry a superior form of pure white engineered stone. This specialty product is manufactured from glass and resins, and Stonexchange fabricates shower shelves from this material. These shelves are often specified in building plans for high-end projects where the entire bathroom is shaded pure white. These shelves are also a 9-inch radius quarter-circle with a rounded and beveled curved edge.
Customers who need a stone product that resembles Galaxy granite can purchase Absolute Black corner shower shelves from Stonexchange. This natural stone is pure black with almost no spotting or streaking. Our Absolute Black corner shower shelves are the same dimensions as our other shelves, have a half-bullnose outer curve, and are sold in crates containing 50 pieces.
Stonexchange carries larger, 18-inch diameter quarter circles of travertine, suitable for shower seats. These pieces are fabricated from superior-quality material, have been brushed and honed, and are designed specifically for shower stalls in condo units. These seats perfectly match the smaller soap shelves mentioned above.
A Simplified Order Process
Unlike some importers of natural stone, our company stocks all of these accessory products year-round. Here in South Florida, mild weather conditions means there is no letup in the building season. We make sure that all of our fine products are in stock at our distribution center throughout the calendar year.
Orders are taken by our sales consultants, a price quote is generated, and the product is packed and made ready for delivery from our distribution center to any deliverable address in Florida or elsewhere. We ship our corner shower shelves in specialized crates that are constructed to minimize shifting of product during transit. These crates are loaded onto a delivery van and can be unloaded at the destination using a lift truck equipped with forks or clamps.
Stonexchange may ask the client for a lead time of up to two months on exceptionally large orders for new development projects. This is never a problem for the client because the job bid must be placed well ahead of schedule anyway. Our company can also mix-and-match orders to contain not only shower shelves but also transition saddles and window sills made from the very same product.
Condo units are often sold far in advance of completion. This means that the purchaser of the property may have a choice of several different natural stone materials for the bathroom and elsewhere. Showcase units are often available for viewing on the property, and the interest generated by each one of these will give the installation subcontractor a good idea of how many individual pieces of the same material are likely required to finish the entire job.
