Design With Marble

Designing with marble is becoming more popular in contemporary home design. However, using real marble flooring is impractical because the flooring has to be sealed multiple times and requires regular maintenance. There are many great flooring options that look like real marble, and you will have an easier time maintaining the flooring with vacuuming or sweeping.

Here are some marble-like LVT and Vinyl flooring options from Armstrong and Tarkett:
