Marble

Marble is a metamorphic rock found in the mountainous regions of most countries of the world. Because of its beauty and elegance, marble is a popular choice for countertops, floors, bathrooms, fireplaces and hearths, walls, and windowsills.

Marble with its inherent warmth, adds a sophisticated element to the area in which it is installed. Its naturally random appearance, engineering characteristics, and ease of maintenance makes it a premium choice for floors, wall claddings, table tops and vanity tops. Many marbles are well suited for wet area application, which extends the versatility of this material to include bathrooms, showers and wetrooms.

The calcite crystal is the basic building block of true marbles, and is vulnerable to attack by mild acids, including those commonly found in kitchen and bar settings. The user selecting marble for these applications should be aware of, and accepting of the maintenance and patina that is to be anticipated with this combination. If this is not an issue, the shabby chic look is in vouge again.
Pre-refrigeration days larder shelves, bakers and patisseries used marbles to maintain cool temperatures.
