The Many Benefits of Marble Tiles

- Friday, December 28, 2012

There are some decorative options available which you just know will make your home look infinitely better.

Marble tiles are one such option.
Indeed, the benefits which marble tiling can bring to your home vastly outnumber (and outclass) those which other tiling options are able to provide. In fact, whilst everyone knows that marble tiling has a beauty which is simply unsurpassed, not so many people are aware of the other benefits which it can provide.

Therefore, we thought that we here at Natural Stone & Timber would remind the world of all the many and varied benefits which marble tiling has to offer.

Unsurpassed beauty

As mentioned before, the beauty of marble really is unsurpassed. Certainly no other tiling material has the same degree of aesthetic splendour and simple elegance which is inherent in marble. To be sure, it is because of this universal appeal that marble tiling can be used to such great effect in all rooms throughout a home. Indeed, everywhere from your bathroom and kitchen to your living area and dining room can be made to look supremely attractive with the addition of marble tiling.

Highly versatile

Marble tiling also has a lot to offer in the way of versatility as it can be used to great effect on shower walls, bath tub surrounds and counter tops just as well as it can on normal walls and floors. In fact, marble tiling can be used on practically any type of surface so you can enjoy it in any way you see fit. If you wanted to, you could even use marble tiling to decorate your home office as its ability to not absorb heat will ensure that your workplace always remains nice and cool.

Health benefits

One of the most important yet little known benefits of marble tiling is that it can actually be good for your health. Indeed, the natural properties of stone marble can keep your home free from pathogens and allergens as it can repel the microscopic particles which cause germs. This can be especially beneficial if you or any of your family members suffer with allergies.


Durability is another key benefit of marble tiling. In fact, its ability to withstand very high levels of traffic and repeated use means that it will easily last two to five years longer than most other tiling options. Furthermore, the fact that marble is largely resistant to moisture and stains ensures that it will not provide you with anywhere near as many concerns whenever you entertain guests or have people over for a party.

Low maintenance

In truth, marble tiling requires very little in the way of maintenance. To be sure, as long as spillages are cleaned up quickly and spot cleaning is carried out periodically; marble tiling will pretty much take care of itself.
