Marble Inlay

Published in

Natural stone tiles like marble can be especially beautiful and appealing to the senses. However, as a natural product, they are a little less uniform in color and pattern and require further planning for use and installation. Since most stone tiles are mass-produced, they have very uniform width and length dimensions.

Stone tiles such as those of granite or marble are sawn on both sides and then polished or finished on the facing up side, in order for them to have a uniform thickness. Some stone tiles such as polished granite and marble are inherently very slippery when wet. A process is generally done to enable a marble floor to be slip-resistant when used for outdoor purposes, such as installing them in outdoor foyers and pathways.

Stone tiles with riven, or split surfaces are sandblasted to help them become more slip resistant. The hardness of natural stone floor tiles could vary such that some of the softer stone, like limestone tiles, are not suitable for very heavy traffic floor areas. There are marble tile types that are literally "tumbled" in a machine process that knocks off the edges and roughens the textures to create an "antiqued", or aged effect. Tumbled marble has a rather rough, or lightly sand-blasted feel, which makes it less slippery, and could be used effectively for outdoor use, such as lawn or outdoor pathways.
