There are no other interior design options that can speak to sophistication and luxury to the level of marble. The historic and timeless stone has continued to evolve since humanity began using it thousands of years ago. In 2020, marble is continuing its evolution through what many are calling a “marble renaissance.” Here are the top five marble trends to keep an eye out for in 2020 as we begin the new decade:
Marble was originally used in the design of historic buildings by the Greeks and Romans for its beauty, and it still holds the same prestige thousands of years later. The implementation of marble into your home’s interior design will bring an air of sophistication and elegance that will never go out of style, and there are many marble options to choose from.
When we think of kitchen and bathroom “workhorses,” thoughts turn to the dishwasher, oven, refrigerator, or our toilets and sinks. There’s one workhorse, however, that is often overlooked, frequently beaten up, unceremoniously spat on and routinely ignored: your backsplash.

Natural stone like marble, quartz, and granite is durable, which makes it a popular choice for countertops and other home surfaces. Even though natural stone is resistant to many chemicals, these surfaces can still be damaged by everyday wear and tear such as food and wine stains in the kitchen, cosmetics in the bathroom, or foot traffic on your flooring.
Marble and natural stone surfaces bring a level of beauty and sophistication that are hard to find with any other material. But, as with any surface, marble and stone can lose their luster over time.
Natural marble flooring is luxurious and elegant. From the hallway to the bathroom, real marble adds a touch of style everywhere it's installed. Compared to other stone, marble is porous and soft, which means it stains and scratches easily. Grout between marble tiles can be stained as well.
Natural stone flooring is a great addition to any home or commercial building. It’s enduring and outlasts many other flooring options.
