Debating on whether you should opt for marble flooring, but unsure about it because of all the different opinions you hear? There are so many myths and misconceptions about marble as a material used in home decor that we can completely understand your hesitation. The Quarry Curators can dispel these myths and put you at ease! Here’s a few of the most common myths about marble and our take on them.
1. Used only for flooring: People often only associate marble with marble flooring. However, marble has so many diverse applications. It can be used as a wall cladding to create an elegant and eye-catching statement. It can be used as kitchen backsplashes or on a table top, and can also be used in the bathroom as a wall accent or the bathroom sink. As long as you select the right marble for the right application, it will look absolutely stunning in your home and give it a timeless look. The right quality matters too.

2.Hard to keep clean: Often, people shy away from using marble in their home because of the common myth that it is hard to clean or maintain. The Quarry Curators recommend following a few simple pointers for marble floor maintenance. Choosing the right quality of marble and the right application also matters. In the case of spills, blotting them with a soft cloth with mild soap and water will suffice to keep it clean.
3.Gets too cold as a surface: Marble is a good conductor of heat, which means it adapts to its surrounding temperatures. So while it feels cool to the touch, it is actually at the same temperature as your home which will always be slightly cooler compared to your body temperature.

4.Unsafe as it can get slippery: Honed marble when used in marble flooring, provides it with more grip as compared to polished marble. This is where the right application matters. Our Curators will advise you on the best marble to use and the right maintenance and finish that would suit your flooring.

5. Unsuitable for bathrooms: Marble can definitely be used in bathrooms - marble flooring is one way, and the other is as a highlight or accent wall. We recommend using honed marble on flooring to prevent any slippage. Understand the basics of cleaning and maintenance to ensure your marble lasts longer and maintains its aesthetics.
