Using Marble Mosaic Tiles in the Bathroom

Marble tiles have long been a favourite choice for the bathroom thanks to their luxurious look and timeless aesthetic. Furthermore, marble is a natural stone that has the ability to create a rich and soothing atmosphere that is ideal for the bathroom. As these tiles are immensely popular for use in this area of the home, you will find an endless selection of marble bathroom tiles available to suit any style of interior design! Fishscale tiles for example, can be used in the bathroom to create subtle yet elegant feature elements, as demonstrated in the lush bathroom design pictured below.

If you are however looking for something more impactful, explore different marble varieties and colours such as blush pink, pistachio green or charcoal to create your own unique style in the bathroom.

Using Marble Mosaic Tiles in the Kitchen

Offering a sophisticated and classic quality in any style of interior design, marble tiles can be used in the kitchen area as a splashback tile or as a feature tile in other areas such as adjoining kitchen and living area walls, or even as a stylish option for cladding your kitchen island. If your new kitchen includes an area for bar seating at an island bench, the face of the cabinetry here can become worn or scuffed over time with use. Wall tiles offer an incredibly durable and hard wearing solution for this type of application, acting as a protective cladding in the seating area.

Creating a Glamorous Laundry Room

As a home’s laundry room is often situated near the kitchen, creating a sense of continuity between these two spaces becomes an important step in the design process. If you have used marble tiles in the kitchen, you may also want to include the same (or similar) tiles in the laundry room as a means of connecting these two spaces by carrying across your material and colour scheme. Laundry splashback tiles are perhaps, the only area of the laundry design process where you have more freedom in your creative decisions, making marble tiles an excellent choice for adding that personal touch.

How to Clean Natural Stone Tiles

Being a natural material, marble is porous which means there are tiny pores throughout its surface which can absorb liquid or powder spills. To avoid staining of your marble tiles, it is always recommended they be sealed; most tiles should be sealed prior to installation so as to avoid damaging them with tile adhesives or grouts. Once laid, your tiles can then be sealed once again to finish off the process. It is also recommended that tiles be re-sealed every few years or so in order to best maintain their quality finish. Harsh and abrasive cleaning products are best avoided on marble tiles however, you will find a wide selection of cleaning products available that are specific to natural stone, ensuring your tiles are well cared for in the home.
