The Arabescato Carrara marble stone has its origin in Italy and it is made up of in a combination of white and gray in different types of patterns.

Before installing the marble stones, the subfloor is required to be prepared. Installing an underlayment of cement board over a strong plywood subfloor acts as the best foundation for installing these marble stones. After installing the cement board underlayment, one needs to draw the reference lines over the surface for installing the marbles symmetrically over them.

Fix the tiles with mortar

Following the manufacturer's instruction, prepare the mortar and spread them over the cement board. Next, place the tile over the mortar ensuring that it has been placed correctly and then properly set it with a rubber mallet. Repeat the process to place and set other tiles. Since, these types of marble stones are quite thick, to get a required size, one may cut tiles with a wet saw.

Seal the marble

Installations of these marble stones on walls or floors will not be completed without sealing. One must use an appropriate sealant for these types of stones to protect them from getting strained. Marble though appear like hard material, are required to be treated with caution while installing as they are prone to cracking.

Grout the marbles

Similarly, like the mortar, prepare the grout following manufacturer's guideline and apply them between the joints. Once finished, the entire surface of the marble is required to be cleaned with a soft sponge to remove any extra grout. The sealants are required to be applied on grout after waiting for a few days or as per the manufacturer's instructions.

Keeping these above-mentioned tricks in mind one can easily install the Arabescato Carrara Marble Stone on their floors, walls, countertops and other areas.
