Marble

This classic stone has been the look of elegance for centuries. Known for its dramatic color and veining, the surface of marble is usually polished to a high shine.  This type of stone can create an outstanding effect in your bathroom or entry floor. However, there are some considerations to take into account before choosing marble in any room. First the high polish finish which looks so elegant is also very slippery, especially when it gets wet. For this reason, many have chosen to use honed marble for flooring instead of polished.  Marble is also a relatively delicate stone which can be prone to scratching, therefore should be avoided for use on kitchen counter tops. It is very important to seal marble to resist staining.
