Marble flooring is usually associated with ancient buildings or luxurious architecture, but did you know that marble flooring is completely within reach for your home? Marble is a naturally made stone that comes in a wide range of textures, colors, and designs, making it a highly sought after material. Marble can be placed in other areas of your home, and can be used not only as flooring, but also for countertops and backsplashes. Here at Floor Coverings International of Vancouver and Portland, we want to arm you with the information you need to know all about marble flooring and how it can best be used in your home.
Artistically, marble can be used as a way to decorate your home, beyond its functionality as an extremely durable flooring material. The natural appearance and quality it carries makes it a popular choice among homeowners. No two pieces of marble are quite the same, allowing you to be more adventurous, and give your home a unique look, or to be more consistent and choose tiles that closely resemble each other.
Marble is often used for countertops as well as flooring. The natural stone offers durability against daily wear and tear in the kitchen or bathroom. The look of marble will bring a sense of elegance to these otherwise utilitarian rooms, and with all of the color and design options available, you’ll be sure to create a visually stunning centerpiece no matter how you choose to use your marble.
Marble makes for fantastic flooring in almost any room of your home. As evident in ancient buildings, marble lasts quite a long time, with its natural durability and resistance to wear and tear making it perfect for high traffic areas. One thing to keep in mind though, is that marble flooring can be a bit slippery, but this is easily fixed with properly placed area rugs.
