“Marble is a metamorphic rock composed of recrystallized carbonate minerals, most commonly calcite or dolomite. Marble is typically not foliated, although there are exceptions. In geology, the term marble refers to metamorphosed limestone, but its use in stonemasonry more broadly encompasses unmetamorphosed limestone. Marble is commonly used for sculpture and as a building material.”


Marble is a distinctive and striking addition to your home, and the flexibility of this material allows it to be used in many ways:

  • Backsplashes
  • Framing commercial blinds
  • Kitchen Counters
  • Bathroom Countertop
  • Laundry Rooms
  • Floors/Entrances
  • Walls
  • Fireplaces
  • Kitchen Sideboards
  • Outdoors
  • Bars

Depending on what blinds in Milton you choose, they can complement your marble fixtures expertly. When you’ve invested in marble fixtures, it’s important to make sure that they shine, both literally with proper sunlight and figuratively with expert décor! That’s why it’s important to make sure you have the right vertical blinds to let in the light so your marble can enjoy the spotlight.

Did you know the origin of marble?

According to Wikipedia:
Marble is a rock resulting from metamorphism of sedimentary carbonate rocks, most commonly limestone or dolomite rock. Metamorphism causes variable recrystallization of the original carbonate mineral grains. The resulting marble rock is typically composed of an interlocking mosaic of carbonate crystals. Primary sedimentary textures and structures of the original carbonate rock (protolith) have typically been modified or destroyed.

Pure white marble is the result of metamorphism of a very pure (silicate-poor) limestone or dolomite protolith. The characteristic swirls and veins of many colored marble varieties are usually due to various mineral impurities such as clay, silt, sand, iron oxides, or chert which were originally present as grains or layers in the limestone. Green coloration is often due to serpentine resulting from originally magnesium-rich limestone or dolomite with silica impurities. These various impurities have been mobilized and recrystallized by the intense pressure and heat of the metamorphism.


Granite, Limestone, Sandstone, and Marble are the most desirable in-home design trends, along with custom blinds in Oakville. They have been and will continue to be for years!  Starting in the 70’s, the trend for marble was only for the wealthy and rich, but now it’s available at all different price points and goes with almost any décor style:

  • Modern
