We were actually looking for a tapered piece of marble to use a threshold between our bathroom tile and our hardwood hallway floor. We couldn't find a tapered piece of marble anywhere else in person or online so we took a chance with this slab meant for a window sill. It looks so beautiful in person and we thought the price was really reasonable. It shipped quickly and arrived in good condition. Our contractor said it will work nicely as a transition strip from our tile to our hardwood. Love this piece!
