When many of us think of marble, we think of beautiful Italian palaces, places of great expense and luxury and of course, that incredible off-white veiny stone that sets any residence off beautifully. Marble is also popular to use for floors, worktops and staircases throughout homes in the UK. But what about our front doorsteps? Often not thought about but used frequently every day, marble front steps could perfect the exterior of your home, and, of course, it’s a brilliant place to put those excellent pumpkin carvings you have worked on for Halloween!
The elegance and practicality of marble in your home
There is no doubt that marble brings a sense of beauty and elegance to your home like no other stone. The sleek look and feel, the practicalities of the stone and the vast array of colours marble can bring all add up to it being a great addition wherever you choose it. Having marble at the entrance to your home can finish the exterior look of your property and leave it looking expensive and beautiful.
As mentioned, marble is not only an elegant choice, but it’s also efficient for use in heavy footfall areas. Our front doors are probably the highest area of traffic in our homes. Leaving and coming home from work, inviting friends and neighbours over, and of course, the prime place for our yearly pumpkin creations at Halloween. Marble is hardwearing, easy to clean and long-lasting, so when you choose to utilise this stone for your front step, you can be sure that you will be using it for years to come.
Choosing the perfect marble for the front steps of your home
Although many of us have an image of marble being that beautiful, sleek, off-white colour that we associate with those expensive Chelsea homes, marble actually comes in a vast range of colours and styles – making it perfect for a variety of homes. Having this great choice means you are not limited to trying to match your home to your marble and rather, matching the marble to your home just got a lot easier.
