Why Marble Will Never Go Out of Style
Marble has the wow-factor. The ancient Greeks and Romans recognized this; Old-World artisans knew this, and modern architects still hold on to this viewpoint today. Though trends come and go, the allure of marble remains. Because of its enduring status and versatility, it’s been able to shift and adapt to the changing fashions. Here’s why we believe marble will never go out of style:
Marble is Opulent
Stones formed in nature will always have a luxurious appeal. The allure of marble goes all the way back to the ancients, put on display as a symbol of wealth. Marble was once rare and only the richest of the rich could afford it. Nowadays, marble has become much more accessible but it never lost its high-end status. That smooth, silky appearance of marble still exudes the same opulence and elegance that it did thousands of years ago. And this is only one of the many benefits of showcasing marble in your home.
Marble is Sculptable
With a hardness of 3 on the Mohs scale (10 being the hardest), marble is easy to sculpt and carve into any desirable shape. Go to any art museum and you’ll see an abundance of sculptures crafted from marble. Its malleability makes it ideal for achieving complex details in both artwork and architecture. Because of this, marble will always be a popular choice for custom home features and decor.
Marble is Versatile
Soft, yet durable and heat-resistant, marble can be used in anything from fireplaces, floors, and backsplashes to lamps, bowls, and artwork. Not many natural materials have this kind of versatility. And with advancements in processing and sealing techniques, marble can now be used in kitchens and bathrooms. With endless options, there are so many ways marble can be used in your home.
The style of marble is also flexible. Its sleek, smooth appearance makes it a stunning complement to modern decor; but it’s that timeless charm that gives marble a classic appeal. Also, due to its sculptability, it’s the perfect choice for a more ornate, traditional taste.
Marble is Unique
Like with many other natural rocks, each slab of marble is unique. No two are exactly the same. Depending on the impurities it comes in contact with during formation, you can find it in shades of blue, white, gray, pink, yellow, or black. The distinctive and desirable veining within the rock will also vary. The one-of-a-kind nature of marble gives it an unwavering attraction, especially amongst the affluent.
