For that look of something special, try marble tiling. It helps increase the resale value of your home.
“Marble flooring isn’t just something you look at and love, it’s something you live with, enjoy, and take great pride in. It’s a choice in flooring that will provide durability, style and yet, is ultimately cost effective. Despite the stiff competition on the market of new flooring materials, marble has retained the number one spot in people’s hearts,” said Dean Dupre, who runs Champion Tile, a Clearwater Flooring, Tampa Flooring, and tile installation company.
While it is true that marble flooring has good and bad points; that is also true for many of the other types of flooring on the market today. “Marble is not noted for its stain resistance, so if you have dogs and cats and kids all at once, you have to know you will have stain issues. This may not be the flooring for you, at least, not in the kitchen. That does not mean you could not consider it in other locations of the house, like the bathroom,” Dupre said.
Choosing marble for a home will definitely increase the resale value later, and for this reason, many feel it makes sense for them to splurge now and reap the benefits later. It is a personal call to choose marble and many do so because they like the wide variety of patterns, colors, styles and designs. Marble has the unique ability to blend with just about any home décor and make it look stylish, downright gorgeous and very appealing.
When it comes to cleaning, marble is pretty easy to take care of with a bit of commitment to regular sweeping and washing with warm, soapy water. “If you’re into the ‘greening’ movement, then you may like marble for another reason – it’s a natural building material. Since the environment is vitally important now and for the future, what we choose as building materials is important,” Tampa flooring’s Dupre said.
Marble has been around for centuries and it has all the appearances of being around for many more centuries, yet another reason to have marble as part of a home’s interior. The timelessness of this stone is well worth the initial investment; an investment that has the potential to pay off handsomely later, not to mention the sheer pleasure of reveling in the beauty of a stone that has many stories to tell.
