Marble for Kitchen Floors

Posted on October 25, 2019

When making kitchen remodeling plans that involves changing the kitchen flooring, you will have a lot of different options to choose from. This article, however, will focus on Marble — specifically, the advantages and disadvantages that come with using marble for the floors of your kitchen.

Marble has a long history of being the material of choice for people of wealth. Marble comes from deep within mountains and is sliced into individual usable slabs. Marble can bring a certain air of class and sophistication when added in your kitchen remodeling plans.


  1. Marble is available in several colors and multiple hues. Each piece of marble is distinct and it is close to impossible to find two exact slabs.
  2. Marble is known for its luster and it can be polished to a very strong shine. Polishing marble also brings out its veins and hues making them look more intriguing.
  3. Marble is biodegradable and eco-friendly.
  4. Marble is known for its translucent quality that can even appear to be glowing if the lighting is just right.


  1. The most obvious disadvantage of choosing marble for kitchen remodeling would have to be its hefty price tag.
  2. Safety may also be a concern as marble can become quite slippery especially when wet.
  3. Marble is not as durable as other materials used for kitchen flooring and is prone to scratching.
  4. Anything acidic may cause stains on marble surfaces. Be sure to clean it up immediately.
  5. To avoid stains and other damage, you will need to apply and reapply a special kind of sealant twice a year.
