Does anyone have marble around their pool?

14 days ago

Hi everyone, we are renovating our 70s pebblecrete pool and are currently trying to decide between natural stone or porcelain/ ceramic pavers. Both seem to have many pros/ cons and we are completely confused.
We have found a porcelain tile that we love but are worried about the fact that porcelain holds heat - no point in the pool surrounds looking good if we can't walk on the tiles!
We are not particularly interested in travertine (we have a mid-century house and travertine would be too 'rustic' looking in this application) and so were thinking about honed (ie. obviously not polished!) marble. Does anyone have any experience with marble around pools? Our main concern is staining.
Any advice would be much appreciated.
