Mother Nature’s Gem
Marble has always been a trusted and favourable building material since ancient times. In fact, most buildings or monuments constructed centuries ago incorporating marble are still standing strong until today. Fun fact, do you know that the Taj Mahal is made entirely out of marble? But what exactly is this stone, which has effortlessly vowed so many people with their beauty? If Marble was a Disney character, it would definitely the Frog.
Originally a limestone, marble is a metamorphic rock which went through the metamorphic process to become what it is. Under heat and pressure, calcite, one its components of many, such as clay minerals, quartz and graphite recrystallizes to form a denser rock of interlocking calcite crystals.
A pure marble is white while those which contains clay materials etc can be in blue, grey or even pink. But what makes it so unique are the veins. Because they are naturally formed, no two marble slabs will ever look the same and there are so many choices out there for homeowners to choose from. They are truly works of art.
Since you cannot replicate Taj Mahal and build a house entirely made of marble, but out of the love for Marble, you can surely incorporate some marble in your home. Use marble flooring instead of wooden flooring to give your house a sophisticated look, so you feel like a royal when you walk into your house. Have a marble countertop and add that sparkle into your kitchen so that you are smiling even when you are washing dishes. Impress your guests and relatives when they come over and serve them cookies and tea on a marble top table. Not only that they are pretty to look at, they are sturdy too.
Marble is a durable building material though not as durable as granite. But its beauty is worth the investment. It is important to consider the traffic and uses of these marbles at different spaces to determine which type of finishing best suits you. A shiny and highly glossed marble surface will no doubt be the favourite of all. Everything is better with a little shine, isn’t it? As Singaporeans, since no shoes are allowed into the house, there is nothing to be concerned of having shiny marble surface flooring in the living room despite the high traffic. If the marble flooring is at your porch or bathroom, please do consider honing, more scratch resistant for the porch and more slip resistant for the bathroom.
Handle With Care
Even though marble is sturdy, it still requires a certain extent of care. Since the polishing process practically closes the marble stone’s pores, they are basically less stain resistant than honed marble stones. However, a shiny surface also means that they are more prone to scratches and etching. You may apply layers of protective coating, but over time, the coating may still wear off from all food preparation on the countertop and walking with dirt on the floor.
