Marble is the king of materials for home decor, it’s a timeless thing that is expensive and is refined and that makes any space sophisticated at once. It’s often seen on kitchen backsplashes and countertops, it may be used for cladding a fireplace and for decorating a bathroom, too. How can you understand if it’s right for your bathroom or not? Here are some pros and cons to help you.
If there is one thing that marble has above all other materials, it is elegance. It immediately makes a room seem more upscale – even if you go for just a sink of marble or only the floor clad with such tiles and nothing else, this will completely change the game. There just is nothing that can duplicate real stone, because you can never have a repeat.
Polished marble is very smooth and shiny and is an extremely attractive look. It reflects light and can give the illusion that it is translucent. A polished finish also brings out the colors in marble. The darker marbles allow light to glimmer on its surface and look dramatically elegant. Light colored marble are clean and classic and will be aesthetically relevant for years to come. If you don’t like too polished and shiny looks, maybe it’s not an option.
Marble is quarried around the world in mountainous regions. It is a natural metamorphic rock formed under heat and pressure, which makes it 100% eco-friendly. If you prefer natural over synthetic materials, this is the way to go.
Routine maintenance is pretty simple. Sweep and use a damp mop, similar to ceramic tiles. However, be careful to use cleaners that are safe for marbles. Use a cleanser that is not too acidic, not too alkaline.
If you are looking for radiant heat in your floors, marble is a great choice as it is a great conductor of heat, it is ideal for radiant heating systems, which is the best way to combat having a cold floor.

Marble tile is more difficult to install than a porcelain tile so a DIY installation can be tricky. Some marble is brittle or may require an epoxy mortar to install, so if you aren’t familiar with installing it you may want to consult a professional. Also, proper prep for the subfloor is crucial. Many people choose to leave it to the pros for these reasons.
The cost of marble tiles varies depending on the type, but generally, they are more expensive than porcelain tiles. But the benefit is that you have a unique and beautiful project that will be much less trendy than many ceramic tiles. Marble has a timeless quality to it.
Marble is softer than porcelain tile and can be scratched or chipped. But, marble can be resurfaced and repolished and be made to look new again. Since marble is a natural stone it goes all the way through, so the face can be repaired over and over again. Deep stains, however, may require more finesse to clean and eradicate. But, if you keep it sealed it will be easier to maintain overall.
