Crema Sahara Marfil is a type of marble made from limestone deep within the earth due to years of heat compression that causes the minerals to melt and reform, creating a new type of rock. Crema Sahara Marfil is simply a classification of the color from which the marble has formed into.
Because marble is naturally formed, there is no one type of Crema Sahara Marfil. As the area has much to do with the kind of marble being formed, different areas within the earth are prone to create different variations of Crema Sahara Marfil. These variations can differ in color, vein pattern as well as the end result of a man-made finish. However, the material will still have the same look. It’s just about how selective you are in your choice of Crema Sahara Marfil. Some could care less. Others may not want a lot of veining in their tile. If they do, they may prefer the color of veining to be a bit more on the darker side rather than the lighter, or vice-versa.
Why Marble Thresholds Work!
Why even spend the money on a premium threshold such as marble when one can drive down to his or her local home improvement store and get a flatbed worth of standard thresholds for half the cost?
The reasoning being that the best investment any builder or contractor can make is to incorporate marble thresholds into a build. Some independent contractors or builders on a strict budget may argue that they cannot afford to purchase a bulk amount of marble thresholds or that they don’t have the type of clients who are willing to pay for premium building materials.
Another reason, which can arguably be the primary excuse, is that they cannot afford to stock marble thresholds because they don’t have the budget to install marble flooring. There are many builds, particularly in the Miami area where marble thresholds have been installed along with carpet, wood flooring, or other types of inexpensive tile—and it works!
Thresholds: Marble vs. Standard Material
No matter what type of flooring you choose to install into a build, using standard aluminum material to seal different types of flooring can only get better. If you consider past builds, there were many designs where the most expensive material within it’s category—whether it’s carpet, laminate, tiles, hardwood, or stone have been connected by standard threshold material made of either wood or some other type of metal—and…it worked!
The problem has often been that these thresholds wear out overtime and need to be replaced, ultimately costing owners of these new builds money.So just because you may not be able to afford marble flooring doesn’t mean that you cannot install a Crema Sahara Marfil marble tile threshold into a build.
