Dolomite

Dolomite countertops in your West Michigan home are particularly beautiful in appearance, with coloring and veining very similar to marble in appearance. Dolomite is less porous than marble with a greater resistance to high temperatures from cooking.

what fits

Your Style

Dolomite countertops are highly polished slabs cut from the sedentary rock of the same name and comprised of limestone, lime mud, and magnesium-rich groundwater. They are found most often in colors of gray and white, with streaks that make it resemble marble even more closely than quartzite does. Although less common, dolomite is also found in hues of brown, pink, green, and black.

While dolomite often resembles marble in its beautiful appearance, it’s significantly more resistant to scratches than marble, very durable, easy to care for, and resistant to every day wear and tear. Dolomite countertops don’t absorb liquids like marble does, and they’re not as sensitive to acidic foods so they’re less susceptible to staining or etching. And dolomite handles heat and sunlight very well, so hot pans won’t scorch the surface. But to be on the safe side, always use a trivet or hot pad underneath them. 

Caring for your

Dolomite Countertops

Although less susceptible to stains than marble, be sure to clean up any spills that occur as soon as possible, especially red wine, beetroot, saffron, or turmeric.

Cleaning dolomite is very easy. Simply wipe them down with hot, soapy water.

Sealing your dolomite counters will help them last longer and stay beautiful for years.

Although dolomite is more scratch resistant than marble, you should always use a cutting board for food preparation to avoid marring the surface.

If stains occur on your dolomite countertop, you can clean them with a mixture of baking soda and water. Or you can purchase a cleaning solution from a hardware store.
