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.
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.
Marble is much softer and more porous than granite or quartz materials and therefore more susceptible to staining, scratching, and chipping. Any acidic substances that come in contact with marble (such as mustard, vinegar, citrus juice, toothpaste, mouthwash, hairspray, contact solutions, cleaners, etc.) can cause a chemical reaction that can etch and remove the polish of the marble. Marbles are a great option for someone who wants that old world look and if not fussy about the shine on their tops.
