Why Buy Marble Countertops?
There are different types of stone countertops you can choose from for your kitchen and bathroom. What makes marble stand out is the fact it can withstand all sorts of things in both settings.
For instance, it’s great at maintaining a cool state, even when you place hot items on its surface. It doesn’t burn easily, which is great news if you like to bake a lot.
It’s also a great pick if you’re an avid food prep. This means you can chop your veggies and fruits without the worry of causing scratches. However, it wouldn’t hurt to use a cutting board anyway.
Also, since marble is a natural stone, it is porous, which makes it more prone to scratches and stains. This is why it’s best to seal it professionally. Once you do, you can enjoy the benefits of durability many homeowners love.
You can’t beat a countertop material that boasts both beauty and longevity.
Maintaining Your Marble Countertops
It is essential to maintain your marble countertops. Otherwise, you won’t reap the long-term benefits marble is known for.
Marble is a natural stone, which means you will need to have it professionally sealed and then resealed every few years.
Meanwhile, you can wipe down the countertops with a damp cloth, warm water, and mild detergent. Be careful to keep alkaline substances, harsh chemicals, and scouring pads away from your marble surface. Wipe down the surface on a daily basis to keep it free from food and liquids.
Adding Functionality to Your Kitchen
As we mentioned, marble stone is a great material to use in kitchen settings also with granite and quartz. This is because it’s naturally cool. When you have marble, granite, or quartz in the kitchen, it makes it easier to prep and cook foods.
For instance, if you like to bake cake, cookies, and bread, then you’ll find the surface is excellent for kneading dough.
Plus, sealed marble countertops aren’t easily scratched, which means you can chop your veggies and fruits on the surface without needing a cutting board.
