Selecting the right finish for your marble flooring is an important but not purely visual choice. Certainly the overall look is important to you and your design, but the finish for your natural stone may be better suited to certain areas of the home or the finish may impact the nature of maintenance required in the future.
Marble is an ideal choice for floors. Aside from its elegant beauty, with unique veining and color options, its hallmark is an imperviousness to moisture - which makes marble flooring particularly suited to areas of the home that might see wet shoes or moisture, like the foyer, bathroom or kitchen. Knowing where you want to employ this luxurious material for its attractiveness is only the first step – deciding the finish will be most important to the future of the stone in the application you choose.
Polished marble is versatile in application – it may also be commonly found in slabs for beautiful countertops. A sleek, polished marble stays cool and temperature controlled – a surface perfect for rolling dough and creating delicate pastries!
MSI Stone offers a vast selection of beautiful marbles in the most popular finishes, colors, and sizes of slabs and tiles. Marble is an excellent choice for flooring – arguably the most common natural stone floor material in the world – and with the right finish, marble can find a home in any room.
