Floors to Walls: All you need to know about Marble Flooring and Wall Tiling

From floors to walls, marble flooring and wall tiling are both beautiful and practical ways to add texture and color to your home!

Let’s start from the bottom and work our way up. Marble flooring is an eye-catching natural stone that has been dated back to Ancient Greece and the Romans, where it was the favored flooring option because of its natural luster and sophistication. Traditionally, this flooring is used in high traffic areas around the home, such as hallways, kitchens, and foyers because of its durability. This versatile stone can be made to fit any style of home from modern to traditional, but with its timeless elegance will never go out of style.

One would think that with such beauty and resilience, it would cost a pretty penny to have marble stone lining your walkways. However Imperial Wholesale prides itself on being the largest supplier of this reasonably priced stone.

Now, let’s make our way up to those walls. Backsplashes using moldings or tiling is another way to create a unique look to your home! Originally added to kitchens and bathrooms for protective surfaces, marble backsplashes quickly became noticed for their unique color and texture and a great way to decorate the home.

What makes backsplashes so appealing is the easy to install nature of the tile and high-end appearance. No matter if you are remodeling an entire room, or just wanting to give a specific area a little face lift, backsplashes will make a beautiful addition to any size space in your home.

Along with marble flooring, marble tiling is very durable, so again it tends to be used in areas like kitchens where there is a lot of commotion. Marble backsplashes are also very easy to maintain. One tip for cleaning your backsplashes includes never using abrasive cleaners; some simple mild soap and warm water will do the trick.

A common misconception with marble tiling, like marble flooring, is that it is expensive. While marble can be more costly than other types of natural stone it is all about how you purchase your stone. Something to keep in mind when buying marble is that it is cheaper to purchase it in tiles rather than slabs.

Marble, from floors to walls is a perfect way to add an elegant feel to your home. Marbles’ easy maintenance and long-life only add to its appeal as the stone of choice for redecorators.
