Flooring

The effect the floor has on a room can sometimes be overlooked. Marble flooring is perfect for bathrooms and gives that room a beautiful edge, particularly in a lighter colour. Light shades are reflective and can make a space look bigger and more airy. Stone floors also work well with underfloor heating. If you want to step out of the shower onto warm tiles, marble is a great choice.

Marble effect

If you want the aesthetic of marble with a lower price tag and maintenance, there are several other stones which are popular for use when mimicking marble. Quartz is a great choice as it’s extremely hard-wearing, doesn’t need sealing and has a non-porous texture which makes it easy to clean.
