Celtic Flooring Your Marble Flooring Pros

Marble tile is a natural floor surface covering that is quarried from mountains around the world. Prized for its beauty, style, and elegance, this material has graced the palaces of kings and queens for centuries, making it an upscale, luxurious option for interiors.

However, there are some serious installation and maintenance concerns that come with the installation of these marble floors, and Celtic Flooring will explain these concerns before a purchasing choice is made.

Style

The biggest advantage of marble floor tile is that it can instantly elevate the appearance of a space, giving it a regal bearing that is hard to imitate. At the same time marble is available in multiple colors, and even in stunning multicolor mixes, providing flexible options for a variety of decorative schemes. Tiles can also be cut to rectangles, and triangles of varying sizes, in order to create complex mosaic piece installations.

  • Unique: Because it is a product of the earth, every single piece of marble tile used is no other like it anywhere in the world. In the case of multi colors this can be quite extreme, with distinct features blaring forth from every tile. With more solid colored looks the shifts and changes will be much more subtle and subdued, but still present, making your floor stand out with its own personality.
  • Natural: The look of a marble floor can bring the stunning power and dignity of a flowing mountain range into an interior space. Even if the material is heavily refined, the inherent feel and presence of its energy can have a potent effect, injecting an environment with trembling energy and awe, while also connecting it to the greater outside world.
  • Translucence: Artists have treasured marble for centuries because it has a natural translucent property that allows light to penetrate through it slightly. This can make a statue, or even floor tiles seem to almost glow when the sun hits them just right. The illuminated effect is much more pronounced in white and lighter colored materials.
  • Polish: Unlike most natural stones, marble is able to take a very high polish, getting silky smooth and shimmering when treated properly. This is a look of sophistication and glamor, that evokes the highest sense of elegance in a space. It’s also a truly distinct look, which can make a difference when trying to create a flooring installation that really stands out.

Other Advantages of Marble

  • Radiant Heat: Marble is a great conductor of heat, making it eligible for a variety of below surface radiant heating systems to be installed. This can infuse the tiles beneath your feet with a rush of cozy warmth that can be thrilling, especially on cold wintry mornings. In some cases it will also be possible to install radiant cooling systems that will chill surfaces down on sultry summer days.
  • Replacement: Whenever marble is installed at least one full box of extra material should be purchased and kept in storage.

    That makes it possible to easily replace a tile if it cracks, breaks, or becomes stained over time, which is much more cost effective than having to replace the entire floor. If extras are not maintained it may be difficult to find a good color match to the installed pieces if a replacement becomes necessary.
