Should you choose marble worktops?


When choosing new worktops for your kitchen or bathroom, you will most likely come across a number of types of natural stone. Of which, marble has proven to be consistently popular among homeowners around the world. Of course, having a thorough and complete understanding of this specific type of stone will allow you to decide whether or not it suits your needs.

Marble is known to be durable as well as elegant. This is what attracts most people. However, it is also known for being quite porous which means that it is more prone to stains. If you install marble worktops, extra care should be taken so that substances don't penetrate its perfect surface. Sealing is one step and, of course, you should clean up any spills right away.

Since this stone is not quite as hard as some others, it's important to note that it is also easier to scratch. Avoid chopping directly on this surface since it will damage the marble and dull your knives. The good news is that marble is tough to chip and very resistant to heat. Even so, the appropriate precautions should be taken in order to prevent damage. Don't forget to compare different types of marble and conduct research regarding the quality of each stone. Not all types of marble are made equal and some are superior to others.
