Marble is an adaptable material that will provide you an upscale refined look, no matter if you are going for a classic appearance or something more modern. Marble is versatile and comes in different shapes and sizes. You can have it come in solid pieces, four-by-fours, herringbone, basketweave, honed and more. Typically, the color scheme is a blend of white, cream, and soft grey or browns. However, you can find more exotic colors with enough research. The pros are: it has a timeless appeal, has great resale value, and is compatible with radiant heating. Some cons are that (depending on the type) marble can be prone to scratching, requires consistent and specialized care, and can be expensive. Marble must be specially sealed at least once or twice a year and may require certain cleaning products, otherwise, the stone may become susceptible to scratches and water damage. If you think scratching might be a problem, the go with honed marble; it is known for being the strongest type. Depending on square footage, your bathroom configuration, and the quality of the marble—you can expect to pay between $200-$600 for the materials alone.
