There is no doubt that marble stones with their natural and unique look, can enhance the design of your flooring and wall to a new level.
Marble - as generally known as a type of natural stone, is a metamorphic rock composed of recrystallized carbonate minerals, most commonly calcite or dolomite. Long ago marble has been used for sculpture and as a building material, and it continues to be used.
Some of the most popular marbles in the construction industry, especially on interior applications such as floor and walls of a living room, kitchen, bathroom, and shower are Carrara, Calacatta Gold, Statuary, Limestone, Thassos, and Crema Marfil.
One of the disadvantages of having a natural marble floor or wall is the high maintenance. Because marble is a natural stone, porosity is inherent, with some types of stones being more porous than others.
The good news is that with today's technology, it is possible for porcelain tiles to mimic any natural stone look, including marbles. The ones we carry are all high definition images and they are so realistic that most people can’t even tell they are not real marbles.
The advantages of using a high definition marble look porcelain tile are:
• Less than 0.5% water absorption;
• Stain Resistant
• Frost Resistant
• Repeals heat, helping keep your home cool on hot days
