Is it almost maintenance free if the decorative trim is marble?

janesylviaMarch 13, 2013

Marble is beautiful, but it takes time and effort for maintenance. So I will choose big porcelain tiles for shower stall and tub wall surroundings.

For the decorative trim, if installed a little below the shower head (so not in the spray line), would it almost maintenance free if they are marble (or travertine)? Handheld shower head will be installed, so I cannot guarantee that the decorative area is always dry, because my daughter sometimes takes off the showerhead.

Thank you very much.
