Upgrading a home takes thought and precision in choosing the right materials. Many consumers are choosing marble.
“It’s no secret that many homeowners these days are choosing marble flooring to bring that extra special atmosphere to their living space. They also realize that down the road, if they need to sell their home, that having marble flooring enhances the resale value,” said Dean Dupre, who runs Champion Tile, a Clearwater Flooring, Tampa Flooring, and tile installation company.
Marble flooring is naturally beautiful and beautifully natural and eminently suited to everyone’s lifestyle and living spaces. The most endearing feature of marble flooring though is its durability; that it will be there long after the homeowners have moved on.
“This is perhaps one of the main reasons why people prefer to spend the time and money on choosing marble tiles to punch up their homes appeal. It’s hard to not like marble flooring when it adds so much more to a home,” Dupre said.
Marble is aesthetically pleasing and one of the most popular choices for home renovations, even in a tight economy. People realize the investment value of using marble. Another equally elegant stone to choose as an alternative would be granite; a popular choice for kitchens and a nice modern touch to add that extra something special to a home.
Many people are worried about their walls, furniture and other appliances matching and being good looking, but in the process of choosing colors and deciding where to place things, the floor often gets overlooked. If the floor is an afterthought, the whole balance of the room is off. Spend time deciding what the floor should look like and the rest of the décor will fall into place. Marble flooring is a good place to start for an end result that makes a home look really pulled together.
“Whether or not you choose honed or tumbled tiles is up to you. It just depends on the look you want when you are done. This is why you want to have a solid mental picture of what the room should look like when you are done. That will also save you trying something on a whim and then not liking it later. Choose wisely and your flooring will do you proud for years to come,” Dupre said.
