To start, what is marble? Marble is a metamorphic rock, meaning it forms when a rock is exposed to extreme heat and pressure. Marble is produced when limestone undergoes a physical and chemical change. This flooring option is available in color tones ranging from white and gray, to pink, green, blue, and black.
Interestingly, marble is often used in the fields of art and construction to make sculptures and buildings. Within the residential sphere it’s a popular material used to finish White Bear Lake floors, countertops, backsplashes, and showers.
Here we’ll be discussing the unique advantages offered by this naturally beautiful material. We encourage you to read on, and to consider adding a bit of marble tile to your White Bear Lake home!
Marble Tile Advantages
Individuality—Like other stone tile varieties, marble is unique in that it’s formed within nature. This means that each tile is one-of-a-kind. Many homeowners appreciate the natural color variation and individuality offered by marble tile. It’s a great option for those looking to either add natural elements to their space, or a subtle touch of character and personality.
Durability—Aside from its visual appeal marble is also well known for its density and strength, making it an ideal construction material. It has a tendency to resist shattering or cracking, a major benefit.
Affordability—Marble tile is easy to transport and install, which makes it more affordable than marble slabs. Additionally, you can easily replace marble tiles one at a time. In comparison, if a marble slab is ever damaged it often requires the replacement of an entire backsplash or shower wall.
