Whether used in living rooms, kitchen countertops, or bathrooms, marble has a timeless and luxurious appeal. It has always been among the most preferred natural stones for home décor, and the most commonly used varieties are Italian. Which brings us to one of the most frequently asked questions – Why choose Italian marble over Indian marble?

Both Indian and Italian marble come with their pros and cons. At The Quarry, we believe it is best to choose what suits your needs. We offer the best Italian marble in Mumbai that is perfect for renovating your home. You may have a particular finish in mind or a budget to follow. By keeping these points in mind you can easily select the right type of Indian or Italian marble flooring for your house.

Here are key differentiators that will help you identify your requirements and the type of marble you desire.

After being sanded with progressively finer abrasives, marble can be polished to a high lustre.
Italian marble is highly lustrous, naturally, pearly and luminescent. Indian marble on the other hand has a medium lustre, which can be enhanced only to a certain extent.

Marble is usually a light-coloured rock. When it is formed from a limestone with very few impurities, it will be white. Italian marble is said to be some of the whitest marble in the world. Take for instance The Quarry Curated Collection of Bianco Lasa, Carrara, Statuario and more. At The Quarry Gallery will also find Italian marble in the shades of grey, blue-grey and beige. Indian marble is available in white, grey, deep yellow, green, red and black.

During installation, it is necessary to match the grains and patterns between adjoining marble slabs.
Italian marble is softer than Indian marble and requires skilled labour to carry out the installation work. Indian marble requires a lesser level of skills as compared to Italian marble but we recommend all our clients to go with the best. The Quarry Projects team has extensive experience and knowledge when it comes to flawlessly finishing a marble or granite installation work.

Italian marble is a wonderful material that can simply enhance the beauty of any room. It is recommended for high-end floors of living room, foyer, staircases and tabletops but not so much for kitchens as it is softer material in comparison. Whereas, Indian marble is mostly used in bathroom walls and floors, kitchen countertops.
