It is easy to get torn in the process of making a choice between vitrified tiles and marble tiles for your living room – with both options having seemingly similar characteristics. The decision remains an important one and has to be a well-informed one because flooring forms the basis of your home’s overall interiors – both literally and from an aesthetical viewpoint. Interestingly enough, many homeowners and interior designers vouch by the marble tiles over vitrified ones. Here are some good reasons for the same.
The characteristics and versatility factor
Marble Tiles exhibit naturally beautiful characteristics that vitrified tiles can never equally compete with. Regardless of how creative or artsy we humans can get, it’s impossible to match the nature’s hues, textures, patterns, veins and colors that marble stones can flaunt. In other words, you can find more depth and character in the natural patterns marble tiles bring in which even best of the best vitrified tiles can’t match. The grandiose and elegance that these marble tiles bring to your living room is timeless.

The health perspective
What has tiles got to do with your health anyway? Well, a lot, suggests research. Vitrified tiles are cold and highly unyielding to an extent that doctors do not stand by them. It can cause unnecessary numbness, pain and stress in the knee joints. Marble tiles, being a natural choice does not have any adverse effects on your health. This needs to paid attention for especially if you’re a family with little children who are mostly crawling or playing on the floor.
A well-maintained marble tile can last up to 20-25 years whereas vitrified tiles are known to last for 10-15 years. Besides, your replacement costs associated with vitrified tiles is always higher as these tiles are more prone to chipping, meaning – the first glossy layer of your vitrified tiles will chip away, stealing all the glossiness, shine, and charm of your living room tiles. Conversely, marble stones are dense and heavier, and thus does not chip off. Even in a case where they do erode slightly, it can easily be fixed without having to replace an entire tile ensemble.

The factor of uniqueness
Vitrified tiles are man-made, mass-produced tiles having identical textures and hues. Whereas no two marble tiles are identical and thus there’s always an added benefit of uniqueness in your living room. Besides, the natural random patterns and hues of marble stones can never be redone or replaced by the artificial vitrified tiles. We all love to be unique and so does our homes! And Marble Stones are clearly a winner in this regard. Check out the startling hues of pink Marble stones and green Marble Stones at Turkish Marble Stones.
