Is Marble Better Than Ceramic Tile For Staircase?

Is Marble Better Than Ceramic Tile For Staircase?

Oct 19, 2020

Staircases were originally decorated with ceramic tiles. Generally, a staircase is a combination of three or five tiles. Later, marble-like tiles began to appear. Most of them use a two-color combination of one long and two short. Of course, these are all in Marble was not popular. In fact, if the stairs can use marble, there is no need to use ceramic tiles, because...


1. The marble staircase is strong and durable, and it won't be damaged as easily as tiles.

I guess everyone has seen the tiled stairs before. As long as the time is a little longer, the corners will inevitably be damaged, especially if there is a hollow drum at the outer corner, and a slightly heavy object will fall. What's more, the general staircase has a cover edge of about 1~2cm, which is more prone to damage. However, this situation does not exist with marble, as long as it is not deliberately smashed, it will generally not be damaged. This is also the biggest advantage of marble staircases.


2. The marble texture is coherent throughout and can be polished, refurbished and polished at will.

Marble is different from ceramic tiles. The texture of marble is the same throughout. Even if it is processed into various shapes, it will not affect the surface texture, so it is more conducive to various process operations such as staircase chamfering. And when our marble steps lose their luster after using for too long, we can polish, refurbish and polish at will, so that the stair steps look exactly like the new ones, but the ceramic tiles cannot be operated like this. 


In fact, no matter what you say, marble is definitely the best choice as the decoration material for stair steps, but the price of marble is indeed more expensive than that of ceramic tiles, so the specific choice must be determined according to our economic conditions, regardless of economic reasons. Then there is no need to hesitate, just pave the marble directly.
