Marble: more than just a pretty face

When you’re looking to design a space, the question of what type of material you’re going to be using for the flooring plays a big part. After all, you’re going to see it and feel it every single day, so you want to make sure that you’re flooring is the best of the best. No matter if you’re up to date with current interior design trends or not, you’ve probably seen the popularity that surrounds marble flooring. Yes, it’s absolutely stunning and can give your home that luxurious feel you’re looking for but it has so many other benefits. So let’s take a look and dive deeper into the other benefits that marble flooring can bring into your home. 


If you’ve just moved into a new home or you’ve finally finished remodeling a room, you try and take extra good care of it. You remove your shoes, clean up any fallen crumbs, and nearly have a heart attack when someone pulls a chair across it. Well, with marble flooring you no longer have to worry about the delicate floors that you’ve been accustomed to. Marble floors are incredibly durable and are perfect for any high traffic areas. They’re also a great option for homes with children and pets. We’re not daring you to try this, but it is very hard to damage marble since it’s so durable and can withstand almost anything you put it up against. 


Marble floors are very easy to clean. Think about it, if you have carpet flooring in your home dropping any type of food or drink or even just normal daily use can leave all sorts of stains on it. Once again, if you have children or invite guests over frequently, spills are inevitable no matter how cautious you are. Marble floors are resistant to moisture and are very easy to clean. So, whether it be red wine, orange juice, or tomato sauce, your marble floors won’t be stained. You can even add a sealant that will give your floor that extra layer of protection too. 


When you take on a new home improvement project, you’re most likely thinking about how this project will improve the look and function of your home. However, it’s important to think about how it may also increase the value of your home. Your home is a huge investment and any time you improve it you want to know that you’re going to get your money back in the future. Marble floors are an easy way to increase the value of your home. The addition of this type of flooring can make your home ready to move into right away, which is something that many home buyers are willing to pay for. It will also give your home a look that can put it miles above the other competition.


Most of us struggle with allergies and if you don’t, count yourself lucky. Marble is a great way to make sure that you and your guests can be in your home without the constant annoyance of allergies. Unlike carpet, marble does not hold dust, dander, pet hair, pollen, and dirt in the same way. The surface of marble can be easily cleaned by either vacuum or mop, unlike carpet. Another benefit is that you can easily see what has built up on your floor and easily wipe away any threats of an allergy attack. 


This one is a given, but marble floors really do enhance any space. They easily give the space a high-quality feel of luxury no matter how old or new it is. Marble is a light-reflecting material that can add light and illuminate the darkest settings, which can then give the room or space a larger feel. Not to mention, it’s just so beautiful to look at. It also comes in a wide array of shades and colors that can match any color scheme.
