Marble and porcelain are very different materials. They’re made differently, they feel differently, and they certainly look differently. There are some cool new things being done in porcelain today, such as finishes that look like natural stone or wood planks. But the bottom line is…you really can’t replicate the look of Marble . If the cool, rich, and elegant look of marble is what you desire, then your choice is simple. Go with the marble.
Since marble tiles are 100-percent natural, they will require regular maintenance. But you shouldn’t let this scare you into choosing something you don’t totally love. There is nothing quite like the timeless look of marble. It has a sort-of translucent quality that lets light penetrate the surface and give off a glowing quality. Whether they’re light or dark, marble tiles play with light, giving off a really beautiful effect.
Natural materials, such as marble and granite, are more porous than manmade porcelain. (Porcelain is made from clay, so porcelain tiles are denser than natural stone.) This does make porcelain more resistant to stains. But the maintenance required to protect marble tiles from damage isn’t overwhelming. If you really love the look of natural stone, you won’t mind a little extra work now and then.
