There’s a good reason why you often will see marble floor tiles in grand hotels and exotic spa retreats: it makes a breathtakingly beautiful floor that never completely goes out of style. The ancient world prized marble as a building material, and things really have not changed since the Greeks and Romans walked on their marble-tiled floors.
One of the characteristics of the classic marble floor is its coolness. Not just “cool” in a fascinating, trendy way but “cool” because marble doesn’t absorb heat as much as other types of tile. This means that marble tile can be used for some cool, practical things.
Anyone considering marble as flooring tile has probably done some research and ended up with more questions than answers. Do you still want marble if it stains and etches? Is the sealing process going to be horrendous every time it needs it? How do you decide between polished or honed finishes?
