A classic and timeless choice for high-end kitchens, marble is elegance and sophistication combined. Its exceptional beauty and inherent warmth make it a popular choice for many kitchen spaces. Its visual appeal works well with both traditional and modern taste. Marble comes in hues of milky white, chocolate brown, coal-black, salmon pink, and emerald green, most having prominent veins while others with subtle patterns. Despite the variety of colors available, white marble is the first choice for many kitchen countertops and vanity counters. Like a white button-down shirt, white marble is adaptable, mixing well with different styles and a wide variety of materials such as stainless steel, wood, and tile. It can be dressed up with a polished finish, or made more casual with a honed surface. For all its elegant beauty, marble does have its weaknesses. Marble’s crystalline structure makes it susceptible to stains and sensitive to acidic solutions. It requires a periodic application of sealer for protection. Moreover, it can scratch easily so it is recommended that you use a cutting board during kitchen preparations. This does not mean, however, that you shouldn’t consider marble for your kitchen. Many customers do. It just means taking a little more care of your countertop in every use. If you love the look and if you think you can handle the extra upkeep marble requires, you really don’t have to think twice about having it inside your home. Nothing compares to the beauty it brings.
