If you’re looking for sophistication, look no further than marble. It has been a staple for high-class living for centuries, and you can find it in museums, ancient structures in Rome and Greece, and all throughout Victorian architecture. Marble comes in many styles and patterns, making it easy to find something that flows within your remodeled kitchen or bathroom.
Marble is made from limestone, and while it stays cool to the touch, it brings a sense of warmth to a space with how it utilizes natural light. It can brighten any room with no trouble at all.
While marble used to be known for its extremely steep prices, recent advances in marble technology have made it affordable to many more people.
Marble involves a bit more maintenance than other natural stones, and you’ll want to keep up on its care if you want your countertop to continue looking beautiful. Always use a hot pad when handling hot pots and pans, and never forget to use a cutting board. Going without a hot pad could cause your marble to scorch, and cutting directly on your marble countertop could cause etching and scratches.
When it comes to spills, you should clean them up right away. Marble doesn’t react well to acidic substances, and spills could find their way into this porous stone and turn into stubborn stains. At the end of each day, we recommend wiping your marble down with warm water and a soft cloth.
When it comes to sealant, your marble will need to be resealed periodically to maintain its integrity.
People love marble because of its natural beauty, unique veining, and wide variety of looks. But it’s also important to keep in mind the work that comes with this stone. It’s definitely not a choice for people who aren’t interested in daily maintenance.
Since marble is more porous than granite, quartz, and quartzite, you can never forget to seal it. If it’s left unsealed, it can become damaged by heat, stains, and chemicals. But if you take care of it correctly, it can last in your home for generations.
