Marble is a classic, time-honored choice for countertops, best used in baths and for specialty pieces. It is not recommended for high-use areas such as kitchens because of how easily it stains and scratches. It is, however, available in an array of natural colorations, though white is the most common choice.
Marble is a metamorphic stone, composed most commonly of limestone or dolomite rock, and is widely known for its unique beauty and style. It can be dressed up with a polished finish to bring out the details of the stone’s color, veining and character; made more casual with a honed finish for that soft, satiny-smooth feel; or textured with a fingerprints and other natural imperfections of the surface.
If you do choose marble for your kitchen, we recommend you have it professionally sealed to help limit stains from oil, wine, coffee and other liquids that may soak into the surface.
