Marble as backsplash tile

carol1965July 27, 2012
I love the look of marble tile as a backsplash, but have been told that it could stain. Has anyone experienced staining on marble or tumbled marble backsplash. Is it easy to seal and does it work?

Marble can stain as it is more porous than other surfaces but would not be afraid to use it as a backsplash... With proper care and maintenance, marble will add a timeless look to most spaces... Happy Renovating!!

Of you use marble, which is always a nice option, be sure to seal it with a good stone sealer. I use DuPont BulletProof or a product called SK40.
