    ca i buy Rs. 50 per Sq ft. marble base colour is white if its good quality.

      Mr Harish, marble is natural product, its very difficult to label a price unless an expert sees the material. Prices also vary with location. Which city are you based ? Having said that 50 rupees is not a bad price. Send a picture of the marble to info@contractorbhai.com

      @50 Rs/ sqft you wont get good quality of Whiteness.
      You should prefer Torrento Marble (biege base)

      Good quality white marble Shall be around 125/- sqft

    hi I need marble for flooring of my house. my architect is insisting on morchna marble. where as I want katni. can u tell which is better.

    • contractorbhai 28 November 2014 at 1:10 pm - Reply

      Sir, Marble is natural material, very difficult to judge particular marble just by name. if your architect is insisting certain type, ask him reasons for it. May be he has seen some lot which looks good.

      If possible, have a look at few slabs of both the marbles before you make decision. Also important that your Architect check these slabs too

    hello sir , plz tell best marble for flooring there are varities of marble i m confused.so guide me what marble is best for flooring.

    • contractorbhai 19 May 2016 at 11:24 am - Reply

      Hello Priya ji, most important you have to keep in mind while selecting marble for flooring – go for lighter / whiter option. Keep your floor as white or as lighter shade possible. This will make your room look spacious, cleaner & bright. It will also allow your furniture & other objects to get highlighted. Marble is natural product & every lot has different quality. So go with an idea to pick light/whiter marble.
