White marble is a fantastic material for bathrooms. This beautiful stone is naturally water-resistant and adds a luxurious, elegant feel to any space. Marble has been used for construction for millennia; the Romans had public baths made of it!
Using marble in the bathroom has two important caveats: you need to seal it, and you need to watch out for slip resistance. A lot of marble finishes have low slip resistance, which makes them dangerous in potentially wet spaces like bathrooms. To counter this problem, use a finish with higher slip resistance, or add rugs in high-traffic areas.
