Marble Tiles

When you think about marble the things which pop into your head are normally Roman and Greek statues, the Pantheon and beautiful carvings around the fireplace. Marble is often used now in people’s homes as it is a pleasant stone to look at with the soft colours and patterned whorls however it is not a very hard stone which should be considered when choosing if you want to integrate it into your home.  To use marble tiles as floor tiles you will quickly see them degrade under the constant foot fall of people, kitchen work services may also get damaged as the marble is not resistant to certain acids that can be found in certain food such as limes and lemons.

Marble is used best for purposes such as windowsills, bathroom floor tiles (a bathroom does not have as much “traffic” as, say, a kitchen floor).

Marble is often mistaken as many shiny, polished stone is called “marble”, but in fact it is probably a completely different stone. You must know firsthand exactly what you are buying so what you do not make the mistake of buying the wrong tile and having to spend out more money for the correct one.

Marble is very popular because of the way it looks and the association it has with class and history. Most people want to look posh whether they feel like they are or not. There are other stone tiles that not only look good, but also are more practical in their uses than marble.
