June 17, 2022 Considering Marble?

Seeing dreamy floor-to-ceiling marble kitchens on Pinterest and want to take the jump into a reno? We’re here to break down everything you need to consider when it comes to selecting marble for your home.

Consider Variety:

Marble slabs come in numerous surface patterns and colour options, ensuring there is something for every home. Be sure to speak to your provider about what there is best suited to your budget and style with many options available including Breccia, Carrara and Calacatta. Remember, while splurging is always encouraged with such central pieces to your home, there is always options for each budget so try and stick to yours as best you can.

Consider Physical Features:

Before purchasing marble, make sure the surface is free of any stains and cracks that can lead to fading after installation. When choosing slabs, make sure that they have the same dimensions and thickness to ensure the surface looks uniform after being installed

Consider your finish:

Think about how you want your slabs to look and feel when they become benchtops or splashbacks. A high-gloss polish is the most popular finishing used on marble, which creates a radiant appearance and brings out the veining to make it more prominent against the background. If you’re looking for something softer, then a matte finish may be for you. Here the marble is lightly polished to create a smooth and flat surface that offers a more down-to-earth feel.

Getting in touch with your local marble provider is a great idea as it allows you to make informed decisions based on your style and budget and to get a real feel for the type of marble that suits your home.
