Where should marble go in your home? It’s hard to say, but there are plenty of possibilities. Marble can go so many ways with its durability and good looks, there are not many things that marble can’t do? Think you can’t eat marble? Marble forms from limestone, which can be used to fertilize our crops. Think marble is only white? That’s actually its rarest color! For the most part, marble comes in rosey or green colors. With this much flexibility, it is a wonder that more people don’t invest in this attractive, long-lasting stone.


With all of the traffic that any single home’s stairs get on a daily basis, marble is not just a reasonable option, but a practical one. Marble shows wear far less readily than carpet, or even hardwood, and makes your home look lovely.

Marble takes on the difficult task of keeping itself looking presentable while you go on about your daily tasks.

Your marble countertops will be ready for the pressure of cutting boards, the kneading of dough, the cutting of pie shells, and all of the scraping that you can do. All of this is possible with the sturdiness and everlasting beauty of marble.

Marble door surrounds are a little touch that you can add to your home that gives your home a little more personality and value down the line. When you’ve got a little extra in your budget to add to your home, door surrounds can give your halls and the entrance of your home the oompf that was missing before.
