Lived in Italy for years. Our house, and every Italian’s house we were in, had marble staircases and entryway walls. But all bathroom and kitchen surfaces were tile, usually ceramic. The only exception, a space for making bread in the kitchen.

Good article, but somethings to reflect on, such as Greece and Italy marble are the best; they have been producing for a long time, but Marble from Brazil, Africa and Asia have same or even better quality. Important to keep in mind that by doing a project with natural marble, it will be unique, as all the materials are made by nature, giving it a very special touch.
