Marble has been consistently hailed as one of the greatest sculpting and building materials throughout much of human history. Thanks to its physical durability, versatility, and of course, its visual beauty, marble remains the king of bathtub and sink materials.
Marble bathtubs boast a multitude of qualities that make them both practical and financial investments: they are mold and mildew-resistant, they rarely leak, and they make for simple installations because they are usually carved in large whole pieces, rather than multiple smaller ones.
The cost of a marble bathtub can vary significantly due to the sheer number of options available, but the starting cost can be expected to be around $1,500. Higher-quality variations of marble can raise the price to as high as $5,000, while top-caliber marble such as Calcutta can exceed $10,000. However, you can be assured that the price rise comes with substantial improvements in quality, durability, and maintenance.
Marble stone is a type of metamorphic rock, which means that the material of your marble bathtub is at the end of a million-year journey of incredible pressure and heat underground, which transformed the very essence of the stone. This kind of transformation is what causes marble’s iconic swirling color schemes!
Many pros of marble stone are common knowledge: their high durability and their incredible beauty. But marble is also known for its fantastic heat retention, which makes it perfect for bathtubs in particular. However, its great density and strength makes it very heavy and difficult to transport, install, and repair, which is its primary downside.
Porcelain is another very common material for bathroom appliances. Porcelain is much lighter and easier to install than marble, but this means it’s also much more fragile and cannot last as long without inevitable breakage. Lower prices and quicker transportation come at the cost of general lower quality and strength.
The famous toughness of marble also means it is relatively easy to maintain. Stronger material and more integrity with its stone composition give marble both physical resistance to damage as well as a defense against mold and mildew. However, marble’s beautiful purity makes any kind of scratch or damage highly visible, so stay vigilant!
Next to marble, the most popular natural stone for building bathtubs and sinks is probably granite. Both are strong, beautiful-looking stones, but whereas granite is cheaper and tougher, marble is the more physically beautiful stone, as well as being much more internally consistent and free of as many natural impurities (other than the recognizable color veins that give it its iconic look). Generally, granite is better for more high-traffic areas where durability is being valued above presentation. Low-traffic spots like bathrooms might benefit from the smooth brightness of marble.
Marble is naturally resistant to the elements, as it is from the earth itself, often unprocessed and of the same composition as when it is mined. Rain and snow are not what damages marble, but rather direct harm such as scratches and thumps, such as those from cutting knives, accidental knocks, or impacts from other stones. In a safe outdoor environment such as a garden or courtyard, marble durability is extremely dependable.
One neat perk of marble (as opposed to granite or even quartz) is its color. White marble in particular has a unique hue that can’t be found in any other building stone. And no matter the wear and tear from rain or sun, marble’s colors never fade or alter. Another interesting quality of marble is that its density makes it hypoallergenic, which means it will never make anybody sick!
The thing about marble is that it’s very rarely, if ever, a single color: if you’re trying to decide between black marble and white, you may end up getting a little bit of both! White marble reflects light, making it perfect for residences or high-traffic areas where many people will be active at any given time of the day, whereas black marble has a cooler look that would match very well with metal furniture or glass.
Aside from its unbeatable physical beauty (and the sheer range of color choices), marble makes for a great soaking tub because of its natural ability to retain heat: the hot water in your bath won’t cool down anytime soon in a marble tub. Additionally, marble is very easy to clean, with its smooth surface and chemical consistency. The only thing you need to watch out for is staining from acidic liquids such as fruit drinks or alcoholic beverages: these substances will clash with marble’s porous surface and sink if they are not cleaned up promptly.
Marble is an extremely popular type of stone: one of the most common materials out there when it comes to bathroom fixtures. You can find marble sinks and tubs at your local Home Depot or kitchen and bath store, but if you’re looking to make a serious impression with the highest-caliber craftsmanship, you’ve got to go custom! Many places offer customization to some extent, but at Marble Bee we spare no expense and accept nothing but the best artistry in the world, and our products are proof!
If it's the size you’re going for, the largest traditional size for a marble bathtub—or most kinds of stone tubs—is the monumental 72” tub. That’s six feet long, which should feel even bigger when you consider that you’ll be sitting in it, not laying all stretched out from head to foot. Another giant variety of bathtub is the garden tub, which is generally an outdoor freestanding design that makes a bold statement to impress guests. Nowadays, however, making an indoor garden tub is no unusual task, nor is requesting a size that can easily fit two tall people together!
