marble mix - Looking at marble and they seem different colors on walls vs. floors - your experience that you need same? Marble from china or turkey vs. italian has different color -- walls look a bit brown or is that reflection off paint?

Hello gusmu, thank you for your question.

The marble color is technically the same, however they are pulled from different dye lots which is why they look different. Let us know if this answers your question.

Don't Marble Tiles Stain in water? - I love the look of the marble wall in the shower and was planning for remodelling my bathrooms. Then an architect friend told me that natral marble tiles cannot be used on wet walls as they will absorb the water and shampoo etc and will leave stains. What's your experience and advice please?

You can use marble in a wet location, but you must make sure you seal it. Because marble is a very porous material, it will absorb moisture and stain easily. When using any natural stone it is important to protect the tile with a tile sealer especially in a wet location. Use a product like Aqua Mix Sealer's Choice Gold: http://www.custombuildingproducts.com/products/aqua-mix/sealers/aqua-mix-sealer%E2%80%99s-choice-gold-rapid-cure-formula.aspx
The sealer will actually enhance the tile's color variation. The effect is very similar in look to wiping a wet paper towel over your selected tile.
We've used marble in many bathroom showers, always sealing, and have never had a problem with the marble staining afterwards. I hope this helps.
Thank you for your question, and good luck with your projects!

This would definitely be going up a level but I would love to see it in the master bath. If you ever think you would sale you may consider it as a sailing point. Just a thought. The labor would be the same but it would be up a level in material.
