    You need to give more info, but my vote would be for tile that has the appearance of the stone or marble you want, and use the real thing for vertical surfaces that won't see so much abuse.

    An important consideration when using marble or any other limestone is the acid etching effect of cleaning products and urine. Sealers will help to limit damage, however eventually the acid will work through unless it is resealed often.

    Marble are non-porous thus it would cause etching and corrosion. Besides that, marble are high maintenance materials.

    • Marble requires proper care and maintenance. Acid should never be used on marble as it shall loose its shine. Marble should be regularly polished over a period of time to give it a new look. If proper precautions are not taken the marble becomes yellowish in colour.
    • Italian marble is usually very soft and prone to cracks. Proper resins have to be used to make the surface strong and solid and avoid further cracks.
    • Proper sealants should be used in marble flooring as the marble is highly porous and prone to staining. It absorbs stains very quickly especially kitchen stains hence are not appropriate for kitchen counter tops.

    Quartz would be a better choice as quartz are non porous. You can read more about the benefits of quartz here. If you like the marble look you may view the marble series from different brands from our quartz catalogue.
