Advantages of Marble Countertops

When it comes to countertops, few things scream luxury and elegance like marble. The soft white with gray swirls appearance of marble countertops is second to none… which is why marble is one of the most sought after stones for countertops. While marble does require a bit more maintenance than granite or other natural stone countertops, it does not mean one should automatically rule out marble as a countertop option. It is certainly possible to maintain marble countertops and, as a matter of fact, marble actually does have its advantages…

Despite the fact that marble does require a bit more maintenance than granite, it does not mean that marble is not a durable stone. Marble has been used as a building material for centuries due to its combination of strength and beauty. In fact some of the world’s oldest and most prestigious landmarks have been constructed from marble for this reason. If marble was so fragile, wouldn’t you think it would have been ruled out as a viable option over the years? Overall, marble is a durable stone and perfectly capable handling “countertop traffic”.

2. Stays Cool:

Marble naturally stays cool making it perfect surface for rolling dough, pastries, and even ice cream. This is why bakers prefer marble countertops over other natural stones.

3. Easy to Shape and Cut:

Due to the “softness” of Marble, it is easy to shape and cut… making fancier designs and edges possible with less risk of chipping or other damage.

4. Luxurious Appearance:

The timeless luxurious appearance of marble countertops is what separates it from the other natural stones. The unassuming ‘whiteness’ of Marble brings an unmatched beauty to any kitchen that will certainly make a lasting impression.
