Marble

Nothing rivals the beauty and appeal of marble kitchen countertops in your West Michigan home. Not only do they look rich and handsome, with beautiful colors and veining, they are ideal for cooking and baking.

Find the perfect

Match For You

Marble countertops come in an endless variety of colors that can include white, black, green, gray, blue, gold, red, even pink,and more. They have a richness and character to them that is truly unequaled by other stone, especially with their eye-catching veining. Marbles are much softer and more porous than granite or quartz materials and therefore more susceptible to staining, scratching and chipping. They will quickly patina and give you an old world look that can’t be duplicated in engineered materials.

Carrara marble, from Tuscany, is the most popular choice thanks to its richness and colors, and is also the least expensive of the marbles available. But in many homes you’ll find countertops made from other marbles. Statuary, also from the Tuscany region, has a more translucent, glossier finish. Italian Calacatta is rare and more expensive, with its characteristic gold veins. Crema Marfil is from Spain and comes in more neutral colors ranging from beige to yellow and works very well with darker colored cabinetry.

Caring for your

Marble Countertops

Marble countertops are porous and fairly soft. To avoid any scratches, use a cutting board during your food preparation to protect the finish.

Avoid using any acidic foods like tomatoes, citrus, and other fruits on your marble countertops as they can etch the surface and discolor the marble. Avoid acidic abrasive cleansers and harsh scrubbing pads.

Marble is very easy to keep and maintain. Just use warm water with some type of gentle soap, washing it down, wiping it with a warm, wet dish towel, and then gently drying the surface with a soft, absorbent towel.

Marble countertops can get stained from foods, oils, coffee, and tea, so it’s best to clean these stains immediately. Use gentle cleansers, some hydrogen peroxide, or a few drops of ammonia.

To get the most enjoyment and longevity from your marble countertops, use a sealant on them. This extra barrier of protection will reduce etching and staining giving you a little extra breathing room for clean-ups. And you can seal them as often as needed.
