Marble has an iconic look that goes back thousands of years. Over the years marble has become synonymous with everything luxurious. The best part of marble is that there is no need to educate the viewer to know what kind of quality is being implied. As soon as someone enters a room with marble tiling, countertops or furniture, it goes without saying.
An underrated aspect of marble is how durable it is. It is virtually impossible to scratch or chip. This makes it a great option for countertops and other high traffic surfaces. Marble also comes in a variety of colors which make it easily applicable in areas where traffic is high.
Finally, an added benefit of marble is that it is a great insulator. This means that it can be used seamlessly in rooms which tend to get cold during Vancouver’s often unrelenting winters. Basement suites and rental suites can greatly benefit from this as a means of lowering heating costs.
