Tile Style: White Marble Madness

August 01, 2016



Following design trends can be fun, but timeless beauty has its appeal as well. If you’re looking for a surface material that is guaranteed to be in style and in high demand for decades, there’s nothing quite like white marble flooring and marble countertops.

Marble tile, and marble slabs are available in many different colorways, all with their own subtle character. Either matte or polished, they speak of luxury, while also fitting well into more casual décor schemes. Perhaps most importantly, white marble continues to be one of the most desired stone surfaces for home buyers, so it’s an investment that will definitely add to your home’s resale value.
