You simply can't go wrong with marvellous marble.
Classic, timeless, and effortlessly chic, is there anything that marble can’t do right? Not if we have anything to say about it. The gorgeous stone suits both modern, minimalist schemes as well as the more classic, traditional ones.
A splash of marble will help give a bathroom that luxurious spa-inspired look, whether it’s in the form of a marble freestanding bath, basin, tiled floor, or even floor-to-ceiling Carrara marble tiles.
