Timeless and classic beauty
Marble countertops have a classical beauty with a silky and suave surface since they are put through an intense polishing procedure. Marble countertops are best utilized to improve the attractiveness of any home due to their natural beauty that does so much for any area of your home or property. Black marble countertops are a particularly beautiful choice for many homeowners.
A broad range of colors to choose from
Although numerous customers routinely imagine a rich, beige stone when they imagine marble, there are many different kinds, including green, red, pink, taupe, gold and black. However, for marble kitchen countertops, homeowners often like to remain with white due to the fact that acid etching can create a discoloration that turns into a white mark that tends to be more obvious on marble of different colors. Classic Italian white marbles such as Calacatta are of excellent quality and a great choice for your kitchen or bathroom, but there are also fabulous marbles of good quality that are available domestically, including Vermont Danby and Colorado Yule.
How to choose Marble
Every stone slab is somewhat dissimilar, so it is a good idea for the customer to choose the precise sections of stone that will be utilized for your kitchen or bathroom. There is an art to choosing marble that involves finding particular pieces and knowing where the unique veining will appear on the slab as it is installed as a countertop. The bigger the piece you can acquire that lacks any seams, the better. If the marble does indeed contain seams, it is recommended to match the marble, so that nearby sections have a lovely mirrored look.
Marble countertops can be treated with a penetrating sealer to maintain the look of the marble. Acids may still etch the surface of the marble if you are not careful, but luckily the mark is not so noticeable with a matte finished countertop. The etched mark can normally be easily removed by using an abrasive substance to scrub at it. If the marble happens to receive a stain, it can typically be removed with an alkaline poultice that slowly yanks the aberrant material out of the marble as it dries. It is noteworthy to mention that any of these treatments will also inevitably strip the sealer off of the marble so it becomes necessary to reapply a sealant afterwards. A great aspect regarding marble is that you can always sand it or polish it again.
