Read on to see white marble in action, to learn the upside of porcelain tile, and to find out which high-quality marble tiles have been added to our Luxurious Specials.

Featured Product: White Macedonia
Marmol’s classic White Macedonia marble was used as the flooring for this Coconut Grove residence (pictured above). As you can see, the end result was a classic, clean, luxurious space that will amplify light and complement a wide array of decor choices.
Similar results can be achieved with other classic white marbles, like the White Diamond marble, a natural stone with a polished finish and a glowing, pure white appearance.
And for a hint of added drama, consider our Negro Marquina marble slabs: equally clean and timeless but featuring thin white veining set in a deep black stone.

For South Florida homeowners, these hardy tiles are an appealing option for a beautiful but durable floor. To learn more about what might make porcelain tiles a good choice for your home or office space, check out this month’s Marmol design blog, where we’ve laid out a few of the considerations that might make porcelain flooring right for you.
