Marble tile has a reputation of being one of the most luxurious home design materials and its attractive veining and color options can truly make it stand out in any room. Marble tile flooring makes a perfect statement in an entryway or any floor space. With many marble styles to choose from, you’ll appreciate the timeless and elegant appeal of marble.

Marble is found across the globe including Belgium, France, Great Britain, Greece, Italy, Turkey, Spain, China, and throughout North America. Marble has been used for thousands of years in the construction of temples, monuments and buildings, and for fine sculptures and relief carvings.

Today, marble is still used for fine works of art and construction, but is now also used as flooring, accent walls and countertops in homes across the world. Over the last century, quarrying marble has been made significantly easier, with vast improvements coming in just the last 20 years.

It takes a lot of skill, the proper equipment, and patience to get marble from the ground, and into your home. Here is just a glimpse of what it takes.


1.Rinse Shower & Dry. Shampoos, conditioners, and body washes contain ingredients that can cloud or discolor marble. After a shower, spray down the tiles with water, and then dry with a soft towel.

2.To Remove Soap Scum. In the event you don’t rinse and dry your shower walls, soap scum and cloudiness may develop. Use only pH neutral cleaner deemed safe for marble tile. NEVER use vinegar, commercial cleaners, bleach, ammonia, or scrubbing pads as they can etch the surface of the marble.

3.Wipe Backsplashes. Kitchen backsplashes are named that for a reason. They often get splatters of food and drinks. Blot splatters as soon as possible, and follow with a gentle pH neutral dish soap and warm water solution. Dry thoroughly.


Marble tiles around showers, tubs, and over the kitchen counter, can take a lot of abuse. It is important to seal these tiles with a mold and mildew inhibitor and penetrating sealer. The goal is to keep marble as clean, and dry as possible. Here is how to best care for your marble tiled walls.


Marble tile floors add timeless elegance to any room. When cared for properly, they can last well beyond your lifetime. Here is how to best care for your grey marble tile floors.

1.Dust Mop. Removing the grit and dirt from your floor on a regular basis is key to protect it. Use a soft natural dust mop, not one with pads that are treated with chemicals, to remove the dirt of the day. Be sure to clean the dust mop after every use so as to not reapply the dirt the next time.

2.Use Mats and Rugs. In high traffic areas and at entry points, use area rugs or runners, and wipe your feet before entry. This helps to keep small rocks and other debris from scratching your beautiful marble tile floors. Make sure the rug has a non-skid backing for safety.

3.Vacuum Cleaner Warnings. If you want to use a vacuum cleaner on your grey marble floor tiles, be sure to use only brush attachments, not plastic or metal attachments. It is recommended to never use an upright vacuum on a marble floor as the wheels and other pieces can damage the finish.

4.Blot up Spills Quickly. Spills are inevitable, and not a disaster, as long as they are blotted up quickly. Do not wipe the spill, as it will spread the liquid to other areas. Once blotted, flush the area with a solution of a mild dish soap and water. Wipe clean to remove solution, and dry thoroughly with a soft cloth.
