MARBLE COUNTERTOPS

MARBLE COUNTERTOPS

About Marble Countertops

Known as a metamorphic rock, marble can be found in a number of regions around the world. Marble is formed from recrystallized carbonate materials beneath the earth’s surface. Because this is a natural stone, once a quarries resource has been depleted, it can not be reproduced.

 

The specific color and veining patterns of each stone are determined by the amount and composition of various minerals. Typically, minerals like limestone, sand, magnesium, iron oxides, and clay are present during formation. In areas that have a higher magnesium content, stones will bear a green hue with serpentine patterns.

Marble can be used in a number of ways, from countertops and fireplace surrounds to flooring and outdoor spaces. One of the most appealing benefits of marble countertops is the design flexibility this stone offers. If you aren’t convinced this natural is right for your project, consider these additional benefits of marble countertops.

  • Heat Resistance - Marble countertops offer superior heat resistance. While it’s highly recommended to use trivets and other heat protectors, you won’t have to worry about the occasional hot cookware or hair styling implement damaging your stone.

  • Added Value - Marble countertops should be viewed as an investment in your home. If you ever decide to place your home on the market, these high-end features will appeal to a wider range of serious buyers.

Durability - This stone is incredibly durable. With the proper care and upkeep, your marble countertops will most likely outlast your home! No longer will you have to worry about replacing your countertops, unless you just want to.

Marble Countertop Colors

The specific region and quarry from which a stone is mined will ultimately determine the color and pattern of the stone. Each location has a unique blend of minerals. It’s these minerals that are responsible for creating the color and veining patterns in marble deposits around the world. Some of the most popular marble-producing regions include Greece, Germany, Italy, and the United States. Once a stone from a particular quarry site is gone, it can never be reproduced or replicated.

 

Marble can be found in a wide range of gorgeous hues and patterns. Offering a palette that is vibrant and bold, it’s easy to see why this natural stone is coveted by so many. From the boldest of black and hues of blues and soft pinks and stark white, the colors of marble are diversely rich. No matter what your design, style, or decor, you’re sure to find a marble color to compliment your space.

Kitchen Marble Countertops

Kitchen marble countertops can be used to add an elevated elegance to your kitchen. Marble kitchen countertops can be used to compliment any design style imaginable. From classic and modern to shabby chic and everything in between, you’re sure to find the perfect stone for your space.

It’s important to note that marble is a highly-porous, softer stone. This natural porosity makes your kitchen marble countertops incredibly susceptible to staining and etching. Acidic materials like soda, fruit juices, coffee, and tomato-based products should be promptly and thoroughly cleaned to prevent any damages to the stone.

For this reason, maintaining the stone will take a moderate amount of upkeep. It’s strongly recommended to have a high-quality sealant applied to your stone during your kitchen marble countertop installation. This will protect the integrity of your stone and prevent any staining, etching, or discoloration over time. To preserve the beauty and performance of your stone over time, annual re-applications of sealant should be scheduled.
