If you’re deciding to install a marble threshold, you’ve already passed up the more common options; those being a wooden threshold, tile threshold, and the ever-popular option of not replacing the threshold at all. Bravo to you. You have an eye for detail and we’re going to help you refine it.

Choosing the correctly colored marble is going to be your first step. You can take the simple route and chose a color that’s close to the color of your flooring, allowing the threshold to blend with the rest of the floor. For more contrast, choose a color which complements the color theme of the rest of the room. Remember, marble is a natural stone, which means that no two pieces will be exactly the same color or texture. This is one of the charming features of marble. Don't be afraid to mix and match colors, in order to create a dynamic look in your home.

You will find an better selection of pre-cut, or cut-to-order marble sizes and colors if you look for a marble threshold store online. With all the competition, there is a much greater chance that a store specifically designed for marble and granite flooring and home renovation materials will have exactly what you are looking for.

Marble door thresholds are usually either 2 or 4 inches wide and thickness varies between ½ and ¾ inches. They are usually 30 or 36 inches, so if your doorway requires a different size you’ll want to have it professionally cut to avoid cracking the marble. The only other supplies you’ll need are thin-set mastic and caulk, a trowel, straight edge and utility knife. Once you have these supplies, the task is no more difficult than laying tile. So go ahead and get started—after all, you don’t want all that spring cleaning to go to waste!
