Marble vs limestone mosaic patterns in the bathroom

By cjp

I am thinking about renovating the bathroom in my Toronto home and have come across the mosaic pattern options. I am trying to decide between limestone tile and Marble tile and need to know which of the two would be better suited for the bathroom. Will one type of stone last longer in this area of my home than the other? Is there no real difference?

Limestone is softer and more porous than marble, but they are both beautiful for a bathroom.  Whatever you choose, please use honed or waxed finish for the floors to prevent slip and fall accidents.  By the way, marble was once limestone that underwent a metamorphosis from the intense pressures and high temperatures within the earth. Both should be sealed whenever you need to, and cleaned using only warm water and a mild detergent. Never use neither household cleansers, nor vinegar and water because these products can etch natural stone.  Once a week you can use a product that is particular for natural stone.  May I recommend the Fila brand products available at Interstone Marble and Granite?  These products are tried and true, and easy to use.
