Imagine if you will, your dream bathroom. It has all of the bells and whistles you can think of that make it your own personal spa. There’s two his and her sinks, a deep jetted tub that can easily accommodate two bodies and a stand-alone shower with so many shower heads that you’d think you were at a waterpark! The walls, floors and even the countertops are all beautifully designed with different variations of bright, clean marble patterns.
Now, you’re standing at the doorway. You look down to find that a piece of vinyl is laid down before you to usher you in!
That’s not going to work. At all.
As a building contractor, if you’re going to spend thousands of dollars to upgrade your bathroom, or any other room in your build for that matter, with high quality natural stone, then you need to finish the job!
Marble Door Thresholds
Thresholds often get overlooked in a build because, frankly no one really pays much attention to them—but that’s only because there’s nothing eye-catching about a piece of vinyl strip laying across the doorway—even if they do come in different colors. The overall impact is just…blah!
If you’re looking for an eye-catcher, then you should seriously consider incorporating a marble threshold into your build.
The main concern with most builders is determining what kind of marble threshold to stock that will it go with other designs for future projects. It’s a valid concern because there is no one kind of marble design that will appeal to every single buyer, although you can come pretty close! However, when it comes to marble thresholds, you have some wiggle room to be a little adventurous because they don’t take up much square footage in a dwelling.
The type of bold, yet subtle marble threshold that Stonexchange, a natural stone manufacturer and wholesale marble window sill and threshold distributor recommends builders to stock is the White Carrara. But before we get into the benefits of White Carrara marble, let explore the actual purpose of marble thresholds.
The Purpose of Marble Thresholds
Thresholds in general can serve the purpose of bracing a doorway depending on how it’s installed. But the newer builds are designed more to connect one type of flooring from one room to another. It serves as an aesthetic way to transition from one room to the next.
When you choose to install marble thresholds, then you may be considering using it for the dual purpose of sealing two different floors together and a water barrier.
The Standard Double Bevel marble threshold can stand anywhere from 3/8”, ½”, 5/8”, or ¾” tall. A Hollywood Bevel marble threshold stands at about 5/8” tall. For a wet room, that might be all you need to keep water from leaking in to other rooms ruining your floor, furniture, and even worse, subflooring.
So not only can your White Carrara marble door thresholds benefit your build as a mini damn to hold water back, it also looks good. It’s far more attractive than a piece of vinyl, plastic, metal, or wood.
Why White Carrara Works for Your Build
The White Carrara offers a clean look that complements any décor. Even if it’s a warmer tone, the deep wavy grey veining reaches in to those darker tones making it appear as one cohesive design. The white background will bring out that pop of brightness to usher you or your buyers into the next space. Even with the lighter-tone decors, the White Carrara can serve the very same purpose, except it will be the deep wavy grey veining that pops out while the white background color extends into the rest of the décor within the space.
Getting Your White Carrara at the Best Price
