I'm trying to find the right marble..

staceydxbMarch 14, 2013
I'm searching for the right marble for my villa and all the pictures i see seem to be crema marfil or something similar but when i see it in front of me it looks dull and boring. I've seen bianco rosa which i like, is this good or can you recommend something better? So hard.. I want a warm creamy look..

I'm starting from scratch so have a blank canvas but the floor is the most important so has to be the right marble and i can't seem to find, i love the bianco rosa but is it a good quality marble?

Here are pictures of quite a few different white ones:

If you want to know how different marbles compare as far as hardness/softeness, put a tablespoon of water on a sample and see how fast and how much it is absorbed. The softer the marble the more is will absorb. The softer marbles are more susceptible to stain.

If u could google out the omany beige, its also creamy close to the crema marfil. As for the photo debrapoated for you its either the galaxy and has golden dots in it or the shangxi black doesnt show much. but u can also look for the nero markina that has white lines in it. Also check for the bottocinno i think you ll like it too. And good luck
