Marble: Marvel And Maintenance

Marble is one of the most elegant materials you can use to furnish your home. It has gained a classy, refined, status throughout years of being showcased as floorings to palaces and places of worship, and as material for great works of art and architecture. Having it in one’s house is now seen as synonymous to having a cultured taste in home interior design.

 

But aside from the aura of class that the marble possesses, it is also highly esteemed simply for its sheer beauty. It is greatly appreciated for its sophisticated swirls and patterns as well as its different colors (sometimes multiple colors in one stone). It is also significantly admired for the extremely high polish it can take that tends to make its colors more vibrant, more noticeable, and more dramatic.

 

It is of no surprise that it is now one of the most sought after materials in home interior design. It is known to be of excellent use for bathroom floors and walls, as well as for kitchen countertops. It is durable and lasting. It is waterproof and heat resistant. As one great marble polishing company in Dubai put it, “It is beautiful, but more importantly, it gets the job done.”

 

However, as with everything, the use of marble comes with a price. For one, it literally comes with a price! It is one of the most expensive natural materials for home furnishing. The material alone is pricey; having it installed, removed and/or replaced is also costly.

 

Moreover, marble maintenance is also difficult and somehow complicated. It can be easily scratched. The simple brushing of shoes and the moving of furniture, overtime,  can easily scratch a marbles surface. It can also be easily stained. If you don’t put coasters under your glasses (especially the ones containing acidic or carbonated drinks), placemats under your plates, and/or insulators under your hot pots and pans, you can easily leave rings or spots of stains on your marble. Due to these vulnerabilities, marbles need to be sealed (and regularly resealed at least every 6 to 12 months) with surface-barrier sealing chemicals. It also needs to be cleaned and polished with special, often expensive, products and tools.

 

So yeah, if you’re looking for a beautiful, durable, and natural material for the flooring and countertops of your home, you can look no further than a marble. It is classically beautiful, but is also very reliable. You just also have to be aware of, and prepared for, its drawbacks.
