It’s important to consider where marble tile will be placed, as this type of tile may require more maintenance in areas such as countertops.
Marble is both beautiful and versatile. Aside from its stylish sophistication, marble can keep your home cooler during the warmer months. Its resistance to heat keeps it from changing temperature. While marble may cost a bit more than carpet upfront, it can be very cost effective in the long run due to its durability. Unlike carpet, marble tile can last for many years. It's also hypoallergenic, and a nonporous finish on the tile will prevent allergens from settling into your flooring.
Marble comes in a variety of colors ranging from reds and pinks to white, grey, brown and black. This makes it easy to blend into your existing style. It’s also available in multicolor mixes for flexible options. The tiles come in a variety of sizes and shapes to choose from to create mosaic installations or blend into multicolored rooms. Since it's a natural stone, every tile is one of a kind, providing a unique finish to your home.
