Next, the marble tiles must be cut to size. This can be done with a wet saw or a tile cutter. The tiles should be cut so that they fit together tightly with no gaps.
Once the tiles are cut, they can be installed. The tiles should be laid in a staggered pattern to create a more visually appealing look. The tiles should be grouted using a high-quality grout that is compatible with the type of marble being used.
