Anyone ever used Textured Carrara Marble?

stlblufanOctober 18, 2013

We're thinking about using a textured carrara marble on the bathroom floors. We thought it would provide some traction and it adds texture to our white and light colors contemporary/modern bathroom. One thing we're worried about is cleaning - it looks like dirt flecks could get caught in it pretty easily.

Has anyone had this installed as flooring? On walls? How has it held up over time?

Dirt, dirt, and more dirt. That's all I can see. Test it for yourself.

Very pretty! However, it also looks like a cleaning nightmare in the making. Unless you have a full time maid, I'd keep looking. Good luck!

I wouldn't even use it for walls . It will get filled with water and mildew if used in the shower area . How can you reach inside these groves to clean it ? With a brush ?
