Marble has long held a place of honor in the home, and there are some truly magnificent marble flooring design ideas that will bring your rooms to life.
The following are some of the best ways you can use marble to bring out true beauty within any home:
- Honed marble provides a faded, more subtle appearance that is ideal for flooring. Plus, because it is not polished to perfection, it presents less of a slipping risk. However, it can be easily scratched so if you do install honed marble, you’ll want to adopt a “no shoes” policy in the home.
- Tumbled marble is another great option that provides a natural, rustic appearance. The beauty of tumbled marble is that it is irregular and thus feels more natural. Using tumbled marble requires a little more preparation so that the finished pattern/design flows evenly from tile to tile. Because of this fact, most people choose larger tiles to make layout easier.
