Nothing beats the richness of marble. For thousands of years, marble has been used to construct palaces, temples and public buildings. While it is one of the most expensive flooring options you can buy, marble slabs and tiles will add a sense of luxury and elegance to your home or business like nothing else.
Marble is a metamorphic form of limestone that was transformed into this beautiful substance through extremes of heat and pressure. It is easily carved into different forms and has been treasured by sculptors since ancient times. Different types of marble come from different areas of the world and vary according to color and pattern. Some varieties of marble are very dark with stripes of other minerals shining through the polished pieces, while carrara marble is famous for its clear white or icy blue-gray color.
Cut and polished stones are some of the most durable building materials on Earth, and marble heads the list. Buildings and statues created thousands of years ago in Egypt, Greece and Rome are still considered to be some of the most beautiful in the world. Marble slabs and tiles can bring this long-lasting beauty to your home or office. Although it will cost more to install a marble floor, you will never have to replace it!
Marble is a natural substance and does not release any volatile organic compounds like man-made flooring can. It is also extremely easy to keep clean. Because it is naturally resistant to bacteria, marble makes an excellent choice for areas that must be kept clean. It won’t collect common allergens such as pollen, dust mites or pet dander. Moisture from spills will not soak into the tiles and is easy to mop up. Finally, you will never have to worry about mold contamination, and marble is perfect for people with serious allergies.
Unlike wood, marble can be used anywhere in the home or office. It is especially popular for kitchens and bathrooms, but it is also perfect for living rooms and bedrooms. Marble is one of the few flooring options that can be used both indoors and out, making it possible to create a continuous space between a kitchen and patio or a living room and garden room. It can look coolly modern, comfortingly country, or regally ancient.
While natural stone floors need some TLC from time to time, their beauty makes the effort worthwhile. Run a dust mop over the marble floor regularly and sweep up any dirt particles or small rocks that may scar or pit the floor. Dampen a mop with a mild cleaner recommended for marble and keep in mind that your floors will need to be polished and sealed from time to time in order to keep them looking great.
