Emphasis on the bold in the bathroom

Mario Romano Walls, made from Staron Solid Surfaces, are synonymous with captivating visuals that have brought walls to life since their creation. Putting the creator in the driver’s seat, the walls are able to have a range of designs routed into them, to suit any aesthetic or space, depending on the desires of the client.

The versatility achieved from routing designs into Staron provides a decorative surface suitable for wet areas and can be applied in bathrooms and other wet areas, opening up a multitude of possibilities for these spaces, as well as the way the walls can be utilised. Not just limited to walls within a space, Mario Romano Walls can be applied to vanity units complementing timber and many other products. Or consider even seating that continues from the shower to an outer wall detail. Being able to be installed in wet areas in both commercial and residential settings opens up the design possibilities of Mario Romano Walls. 

Staron Solid Surfaces are certainly no strangers to wall cladding, but with Mario Romano Walls it becomes far easier to implement the surfaces within certain projects. The range offers textured surfaces, allowing designers to push the design scope and creativity.

The many benefits of Staron continue with the product being stain-free, mould resistant and easy to clean.

Other benefits bring unique qualities too, including the fact that Mario Romano Walls require no grout when applied within a wet area, require no painting and are UV stable and silica free. Austaron Surfaces range of designs cover most bases, but if you desire something else entirely, you are able to create your own design to be carved onto a Mario Romano Wall. Simply select a design or create your own, give the correct specification of dimensions and Austaron sets about bringing it to life through an innovative manufacturing process, involving the latest in parametric computing and CNC machining technology.

Bathrooms, while very much functional, still offer an incredible opportunity for creative expression. Tiling, vanities, showers and screens all form the overall look and feel of a bathroom, with a material palette and textural curation that is unlike any other in the home. The ability to install Mario Romano Walls within wet areas can undoubtedly elevate bathroom spaces. 

Through their incredible technology, the walls are joined via a patented joining system that interlocks together to achieve a full-scale design. The joins are inconspicuously hidden within the detail. Designs can also be curved, to underline certain features of the design.

Mario Romano Walls are carved locally for your project and provide a quick installation process; ultimately turning walls into a piece of art.
