Tile Style: Marble Tile Flooring Ideas That Are Worth The InvestmentMarch 12, 2017
When it comes to home remodeling projects, your heart may be saying “need, need, need!” while your budget is saying “save, save, save!” So how can you decide where to save, and where to invest a bit more of those precious dollars?
Here are some questions to ask yourself, that will help you decide:
• Is this a permanent fixture or element?
• Is this a focal point, or does it add tremendous value to the décor?
• Is this a high-quality item?
• Are you absolutely in love with it?
If the answer to one or more of these question is yes, then go for it! Tile flooring is a permanent fixture, and it demands a top-quality product. Settle for anything less, and you’ll be less satisfied with the results – and may even need to re-do your floor in a few years’ time.
Marble tile flooring adds value to décor that any homeowner will love, and is a great return on investment in terms of resale value as well. With these things in mind, it makes sense to follow your heart!

Marble tile creates a soothing ambience in this contemporary bathroom; it’s softly shaded, it’s sleek… and yes, it resembles wood.
White Oak Marble has linear veining that resembles natural wood, but it does what wood can’t do, which is to streamline your cleaning routine with its superb water resistance.

Another tile that looks like wood, Gray Oak Marble is available in plank sizes like its namesake. It’s shown here as an inset amid another flooring option, which also happens to be marble… but it complements other flooring as well. This demonstrates that you don’t need to cover an entire floor with marble tile to get a big impact.

Ocean Blue Marble is a definite head-turner, since it’s far from what you’d expect from classic marble tile. Its blue-gray shades with highlights of ivory and taupe become the focal point of this kitchen scene, and since it’s natural stone, every tile is unique.
