There is no such thing as a perfect stone countertop without any gripe to observe or be cautious of. Despite the fragile nature of marble, several homeowners are still longing to have it for their kitchen and bathroom vanities.
If you are planning to install manufactured marble countertops, here the best advantages to enjoy from this natural stone.
1. Pristine Beauty
If you have seen a marble slab, and have cut it into two, you would notice that none of the pieces is alike. This is one of the pristine beauty of marble stones which contributes to its stunning appearance.
One of the main features of marble that is loved by many is its bolder veinings with high consistency with its background color. This is a good contrast with granite who has finer veining details and more varied specks of color in its background.
Among the top brands of best marble countertops include Carrara and Calacatta. There are several kinds of marble stone countertops available in the market and each has its respective price and elegance.
The former has the most economical price among the types of marble countertops. It is characterized by a white to the gray background and finer gray veining patterns. Its white color provides a quick facelift in the beauty and elegance of your small kitchen and bathroom redo.
Meanwhile, Calacatta marble has parallel looks with Carrara but comes at a higher price due to its rarity. Calcatta is considered as the number one brand of marble in the industry.
Unlike Carrara, the veining patterns of Calacatta are thicker and darker which draws much attention to your audience.
2. Dependable tolerance against heat
Marble has a weak spot with acidic solutions which leads to etching. Nonetheless, you can readily resolve this through light buffing and sanding to hide etch marks. Despite this vulnerability, marble stones are naturally impervious to a high temperature so no worries on placing hot pots on top.
Considering that, you can choose to install marble countertops for your hot kitchen granted you have applied impregnating sealants to cover up its pores. Further, we still encourage you to use hot pads when placing hot items on top of your marble kitchen countertop to avoid destroying its sealant covering.
