Using Marble Outdoors
You already know adding marble indoors is stunning and eye-catching, but bringing marble outdoors is just another way to further exalt your home. Marble comes in many colors, patterns, and textures, giving you full design capabilities when matching it to your exterior aesthetic. It’s a durable material, and for this reason, a phenomenal investment to make in your home with regards to resale value. Choose non-polished options so you don’t have to worry about the erosion of sealant, and you’ll be good to go. Check out some of the best ways to incorporate marble into the exterior of your home below!
Outdoor Marble Tiles
Outdoor marble can be accomplished through pavers and tiles, which are then used to form flooring in the form of driveways, walkways, patios, pool decks, and more. Marble pavers are resistant to the elements, and will disregard the effects of common weather aspects including moisture, cold, heat, and erosion. Because of its high conductivity, marble has very little heat retention and remains cool to the touch even during the hottest months. Additionally, the subtle roughness of its texture keeps marble slip-resistant, which makes them great around pools, during winter, and in environments where it rains often.
Outdoor Marble Furniture
Custom permanent furniture and fixtures are one way to add marble outside. If you’re not ready to commit to permanent furniture, you can also complement your outdoor space with tables, seating, or bar accessories that feature marble accents. Tying in marble furniture to other exterior marble features is a great way to create cohesiveness and elegance, ultimately resulting in a super regal feel.
Outdoor Marble Kitchen
Indoor kitchens are perfect for indoor months, but when your spring, summer, and/or fall is spent outside, it only makes sense to get an outdoor marble kitchen! They’re the best way to ensure you’re always making the most of your outdoor space. As for where the marble will go, outdoor kitchens can be composed of marble counters, countertops, backsplashes, and even exterior marble walls.
Outdoor Marble Pool House
For those lucky enough to have the outdoor space for a pool and adjacent room for a pool house, choosing marble as the main material will make an unforgettable impression. It’s a wonderful opportunity for tying together main house exterior marble or indoor marble. Use marble slabs, tiles, and pavers to form both the housing and pool surround, and you’re sure to be the talk of the neighborhood. A pro tip: choose marble from the same slab when possible for consistent coloring.
Outdoor Marble Fountain
Outdoor marble fountains are a lovely accent to any outdoor space. They’re stunning and elegant, and can complement gardens, gazebos, and winding walkways. While marble fountains may require some upkeep, there’s no need to worry about that; we’ve got a blog on it!
