As a maintenance option, you have the choice to seal your marble tile and the grout as well. Sealing the tiles and grout will significantly extend the life of your marble shower, as well as making it much easier to clean and maintain.
Rough cut marble is much more porous than polished marble, and can be a candidate for sealing. Polished marble is more resistant due to the manufacture polish and surface sealer and is very little chance of water absorbency, there is a much less chance of staining, and therefore sealing is not really necessary. In addition, if the marble is not absorbent, then it will not absorb the sealer, and the sealer wont work.
A major consideration when deciding whether or not to seal your marble shower is that hard water stains are a common theme in bathrooms, specifically in showers and baths. Sealing the marble will reduce the chances of hard water stains from setting in, or at the very least make it much harder to accumulate calcium and lime deposits over time.
If you have chosen marble as a countertop, tile or bespoke marble for the shower, we suggest you inspect it with your contractor prior to any final maintenance such as sealing, to catch any flaws before they become larger problems.
