Marble tiles make for very beautiful floors. They give your home an elegant look, with their beautiful range of colors and patterns. Throughout history, this popular stone has been used for creating some of the most magnificent pieces of architecture. Undoubtedly, the use of marble adds a certain appeal to your house.
When it comes to kitchen and bathroom floors, marbles can be a very good choice if used and maintained in the right manner.
Here is a look into the various reasons why you should use this stone:
Marble can be very durable
Being a porous material, marble is easily scratched and stained. However, if after installation, the tiles have been properly sealed, then that makes them resistant towards such damage.
Sealing, is the process of coating the floor with an impregnating sealer that makes it stain and scratch resistant. You can always consult with your supplier to see which sealer would be best suited for the material you are using on your floors. You can also consult your supplier to see if sealing can help prevent any damage caused by footfalls.
Marble comes in a wide range of colors
If you want to make your kitchen and bathroom look impressive, then marble is the right choice for you. Not only does marble come in different shades, but it can also be multicolored with a variety of hues assembled on the surface of every piece. Every tile will be unique in its own way. Due to various deposits, marble often forms vein like patterns. As a natural stone, patterns too vary from one another, depending on the part from which the stone has been cut.
Has a lustrous quality
In the right lighting, a marble may seem to take on a glowing quality. It has a sheen, which can often be witnessed even in the dark, with some light across its surface. Due to its slightly translucent nature, light can partially penetrate the surface of a light colored marble and make it look shinier.
Can be polished to look shinier
Marble is one of those materials that can withstand an extremely high polish. The surface can be made smooth and shiny, bringing out the colors and making it look even better. Even after it has been used for a really long time, you can have it polished again to make it look as good as new. However, you have to keep in mind that polishing it makes it relatively slippery, so you need to be careful not to spill water on it in the kitchen and also the bathroom. You can use floor mats to avoid any accidents.
