Marble adds sophistication and beauty when incorporated into a design. It’s well suited for use in wet areas, such as tub decks and showers in bathrooms. Marble also is an ideal material for foyers, floors, windowsills and fireplace hearths; however, it is vulnerable to damage from mild acids, which is why it’s not recommended for use in kitchens and bars.
Marble is a metamorphic crystalline rock composed mainly of grains of calcite, dolomite or serpentine, and it is capable of taking a high polish. The calcite crystals make it likely that this natural stone will gain a patina. It’s also a general rule of thumb that only white marbles should be used outdoors.
Marble is valued for:
- Its heat-resistant nature
- Its natural beauty
