Benefits of Marble
Marble has long been seen as a symbol of wealth and quality. Unlike other natural stone surfaces, marble kitchen countertops add a distinctive design element. With the natural imperfections in the stone's coloration, the countertops vary in color and appearance. Marble adds a depth of beauty not possible with other surfaces.
The durability of marble is also unmatched. When cared for properly, marble countertops could outlast the house itself. The marble will continue to look as beautiful as the day it was installed. Since marble is heat resistant up to temperatures higher than what is traditionally found in a kitchen, it makes an obviously good choice for counter fabrication. As a natural stone, it is also resistant to scratches, chips and cracks.
Care for Marble
In order to keep your marble looking as beautiful as the day it was installed, a significant amount of care is required. Although it is a natural stone, the surface is porous and will absorb liquids. Always use coasters, placemats and trivets when placing items on your countertop. When spills do happen, be sure to clean them immediately to prevent staining. If you are placing a hot pot, pan or skillet on the counter, be sure to use a hot pad or trivet. The heat from the pan can cause the color of the marble to permanently change color, thus ruining the appearance of the counters.
Although the stone is naturally resistant to scratches, chips and cracks, it is a good idea to use cutting boards and not cut items directly on the marble. Acidic substances and soap scum can also cause etching to occur. Avoid this by limiting the contact that the marble has with coffee, juice and other acidic liquids. Be sure to keep the surface clean by using a cleanser specially designed for marble surfaces.
