    Ways to use marble in your home

    Marble is a metamorphic rock which begins life as limestone. Over time it transforms due to the intense heat and pressures it’s under and recrystallises to make the marble which we’re all familiar with. Marble is available in a variety of unique colours and often comes with flecks or veins which change the look of the stone. This material can be seen imitated everywhere from pens to coffee mugs and remains highly sought after.

There are many places you can use this stone to add an instant splash of luxury. If you want to upgrade your home, we’ve collated our favourite places to use marble to add glamour to your everyday.

    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. Quartz is available in a range of different shades which makes it perfect for a marble effect worktop.
