The Benefits of Marble Countertops

Among the finest choices available to upgrade your kitchen are marble countertops. They are beautiful, functional, and durable. People who have had them will have nothing else.

Think of marble as the jeans of countertops — they will work better and better while wearing and aging gracefully, giving them a unique and organic character.   – Apartment Therapy

Marble is a metamorphic rock that contains crystallized limestone. The raw material is quarried, and its sedimentary form is pressurized and heated to extreme levels. The crystallization process yields a beautiful whitish stone.

The Benefits of Marble Countertops

Marble Countertops are Readily Availability:

Some people think marble is very rare and needs to be shipped from Italy or some exotic region of the world. This is not true; it is fairly easy to find locally, and there are many options as to colors and patterns.

Marble Countertops are Beautiful:

No one would question that marble countertops are exceptionally beautiful.

Rich with crystals and color variations, marble comes in a variety of shades, including white, cream, black, green and pink.

The natural patterns and colors combine to make marble an awesome upgrade in your kitchen. No two marble countertops are the same; each has it’s own charm and beauty!

Marble Countertops are Heat Resistant:

. . . they are heat resistant also; they can stand against all the hot pots and pans.

This seems like an obvious thing, but you don’t want to risk having a countertop that will show burn marks. Additionally, marble countertops, because they are stone, will cool your kitchen.

A Few Notes About Maintenance:

Marble is comparatively soft and is therefore susceptible to stains and etching. The up side is that the quality of marble absorbs scratches and stains in an amazing “aging” process. Many people think it adds tremendous charm. Nevertheless, most etching and stains can be avoided by having the marble countertops sealed after installation, regular clean-up, and awareness of certain items that stain.

When upgrading your kitchen, consider marble countertops. One expert made the choice and over a year later said this:

I love the countertops. After a year and a half of living with marble, I find it elegant, cool, and bright. It’s lovely to work on, and easy to clean.   – Faith Durand
