How to Care for Outdoor Marble

Jun 1, 2017

Choosing the proper flooring is essential for your outdoor space. While marble is typically a common flooring choice for indoor rooms, like bathrooms and kitchen spaces, it can also be practical for the outdoors. Many homeowners, especially those in warm and steady climates, often put a lot of effort into the design of their outdoor space.

However, as you may have guessed, not just any marble will hold well when exposed to the outside elements. For example, the polished marble countertop you have in your kitchen is not something that would work well in your patio because it is designed and chosen as an indoor material.

Instead, opt for a marble that withstands different climates and has a natural look to be in keeping with the environment around your house. You will find that marble stone with a slightly textured surface work well in outdoor spaces. Keep in mind that outdoor tiles are not just for flooring! You can also use marble tiles to create an outdoor accent wall.

Marble is a natural stone that can add instant elegance to any space, whether big or small or inside or outside. Selecting a timeless look, or one that will age well, and maintaining it with proper care will help your outdoor marble provide you with years of enjoyment.
