Marble flooring: The natural, timeless choice

Get in touch

    With marble flooring, you can add an element of long-lasting elegance and sophistication to any space. Marble is a natural stone that has been used for centuries in some of the most beautiful architectural spaces around the world.

    This metamorphic rock was formed millions of years ago under extreme heat and pressure and continues to prove its durability in design additions across the world. If you are looking to make a unique, lasting statement then this is the flooring for you.  At Africa Range, we supply a variety of high-quality marble suitable for interior and exterior environments.

    Things to remember for your marble flooring

    This is a popular choice for the luxurious and sophisticated aura it brings to any space, though there are a few things to remember when taking care of marble tiles to ensure that it is best suited for your space and remains in its best shape for years to come.

    Firstly, it should always be reinforced with a sealer. Since this natural stone is porous by nature, it is left vulnerable to damage by spills if left unsealed. Treatment for the stone is necessary and should be reapplied to provide the stone with ongoing protection and to protect your investment.

    Since the porosity of marble leaves it vulnerable to damage by acidic matter, any spills of this nature should be cleaned immediately as acidic products can cause permanent discolouration and ruin the colouring of this stone. Although sealant helps protect the stone from this, it is still important to be vigilant. Cleaning products with high acidity and chemicals should also be avoided. Cleaning should rather occur with mild soap and water.

    Although polished marble is a stunning choice, it may not be an ideal finish for all areas. When wet, polished marble can be especially slippery, making it less suitable for kitchen and bathroom areas. If you would like to make use of marble flooring in your kitchen or bathroom space, we advise choosing a honed or brushed finish, as these ensure the marble is non-slip.

    Marble may be one of the hardest materials commercially available, but mismanagement of this natural stone can still lead to cracks and chips. This is why it is essential to hire professionals for your installation.

    The advantages of marble flooring

    Natural beauty

    Since marble is a material that was formed millions of years ago through heat, pressure and other chemical processes, it possesses a unique aesthetic that will enhance any space. The grains and veins present in marble stone are each distinct and unlike the next. Combined with various colour combinations, marble stone has solutions for any design style.
    High versatility

    Marble has natural durability that ensures long-lasting use for years to come, provided it is properly maintained. This natural stone is fire and erosion resistant, making it a durable building material suited for flooring. Marble can also withstand high traffic and is not easily damaged.

    Adds real estate value
    This natural stone is not only a stunning choice for its aesthetic appeal, but it also adds to the overall value of a property. The high demand for marble’s beauty and its superb durability makes it a compelling deciding factor for buyers.
