We know that marble is one of the oldest and most beautiful stones available on the market for counter tops. It’s a metamorphic stone that is a result of limestone being subjected to immense amount of pressure for long periods of time. Its popularity began in ancient Rome and Greece, where white and off-white marble was used to construct a variety of structures, from hand-held sculptures to massive pillars.
Even though it is a beautiful counter top option, there are other reasons why homeowners may choose marble for their kitchen counter tops instead of various other stones.
First, it is one of the longest-lasting counter top stones available on the market. Although it can be expensive, counter tops essentially pay for themselves as long as they are maintained and properly cared for throughout the years.
Furthermore, marble counter tops come in a variety of colors that are well suited for a variety of personal tastes. However, think carefully about installing dark marble counter tops in your kitchen—etching is more noticeable on dark stone rather than light colored marble.
