Marble can certainly add a delightful touch to your home. The varieties to choose from are legion.
If brightening up your home is high on your list this year and you want to make a statement, a quiet one or a bold one, then you might want to consider using marble. Marble is so versatile that it can be used as countertops, floors, accessories or accents in your home décor. Really, the only limit to using marble is your imagination. Other than that, it does pretty much everything with real style.
One of the best and most attractive things about marble is the fact that it has a high shine or polish. It can almost gleam in the dark. When you polish Tampa marble with loving attention, it takes on the feel of smooth glass or silk. It’s quite elegant and indeed, sensual to some. Other stones aren’t formed the way marble is and so their surface isn’t capable of providing you with that special glimmer that marble gets when it’s polished to perfection.
Yes, you do need to be careful with marble, as it is soft, which does mean you may be able to chip or scratch it. If you’re careful with your marble, this should not be a problem, and many chips or cracks, provided they are not too deep, may be fixed or repaired. These are things you will want to check out before making your marble purchase. After all, it’s your lifestyle and you know best what would work for you.
If you have done any research on marble for your home, you will know by now that you need to be careful with spills, particularly anything acidic. If you don’t catch the spill right away, the Tampa marble will discolor and you run the risk of having a permanent stain. While marble may have its drawbacks, most are willing to overlook those and work with the beauty of the stone. It’s darn near irresistible and once you get the hang of caring for it, it’s a snap.
