In recent years there has been a notable rise in the availability of natural effect tiles; ceramic wall or floor tiles that
are carefully crafted to look like natural stone, such as slate or marble. There are a number of advantages to these
tiles, such as a lower cost compared to real marble or slate, and increased durability. While marble isn’t as porous
as some other natural rock, it still doesn’t quite match up to hardier options like granite, so it isn’t usually
recommended for areas such as bathrooms or kitchens with high levels of moisture. A marble effect ceramic tile,
however, has the strength to handle steamy or damp conditions.
