A BEGINNER’S GUIDE TO BUYING THE PERFECT MARBLE
Marble has always been a popular choice for architects and interior designers because of its various applications.
Before one invests in marble for their home, here are a few important things to keep in mind.
Marble is a natural material known for its unique variations in colour, patterns, and textures. These characteristics of the stone make it unique and hence a perfect choice for distinct personal expression. The natural variations lend a rare beauty to any design aesthetic.
Marble Composition and Usage
Each marble slab is unique due to the different geological processes involved in its formation. These processes determine the composition, look, and strength of the stone. It is essential to evaluate the marble based on its physical properties (durability, porosity, and more) and then select the intended application.
When choosing marble, it is essential that it matches your overall design vision for the space. Marble is one of many materials involved in construction and interiors, but it is significant due to its area of application and overall appeal.
To create a seamless experience with unique natural designs, consider using large slabs from the same lot as much as possible. Installation techniques like book-matching also add an element of continuity and harmony to the design.
Durability and Maintenance
To ensure the lasting durability of marble, it is essential to confirm to the right quality of processing and the right specification meant for processing of the stone. For example, the international standard for thickness of a slab is 20mm (with a maximum deviation of 10%). This is required to provide durability and help the stone withstand heavy objects and natural erosion due to maintenance over a period of time. The right maintenance techniques are important and will further enhance the life and beauty of the stone.
Keeping these factors in mind will help you select the perfect marble to enhance your space. For more design inspiration and marble solutions, explore our wide collection of marble at the MCI Experience Centre. Contact us at 9880144544 to book an appointment.
