Marble - a beautiful stone for bathrooms and kitchens

Marble is a metamorphic stone


created by heat and extreme pressure on limestone.  It is basically crystallised calcium carbonate, although other iron and clay materials may also be present creating the veining and colours in these glorious stones.

It is generally more porous than granite, and has a 'softer' look, making it particularly suitable for bathrooms.  It can be pattern matched across walls, floors and vanity surfaces.

It can also be used in kitchens, but as it has a softer make up it needs more attention than granite, too keep it looking at its best.  Marble can be marked by acids and oils, At Windsmere Stone we recommend marble worktops in kitchens, and do feel if looked after properly marble can grow in character and make an excellent surface.

The images below are examples of slabs with our suppliers in Italy.  Seeing a whole slab gives a much better idea of the look of each marble.  Windsmere Stone would advise a visit to the yard to see the slabs and to make your own choice.

Onyx Esmeraldo

This stone comes from Italy. Onyx Esmeraldo is a very unique product and will vary tremendously from slab to slab, making it an exciting product to use.
