They work great in basin splashbacks and benchtops. They can even be used as tabletops both indoors and outdoors.
Reflects light: Marble offers endless beauty is because of its light-reflecting properties. For this reason, marble can provide a smooth and brighter look to your rooms. That is the sole reason why many people prefer light-colored marble tiles for their homes.
