Marble is a classic stone which has been used for centuries on walls, floors and kitchen countertops. It is even one of the most popular materials for kitchen countertops in the world. Here are some marble kitchen countertop design ideas.
What to expect when using white marble:
Marble, unlike it's alternatives [quartzite, granite, schist, sandstone, basalt and engineered stone], will scratch fairly easily, meaning it has relatively low abrasion resistance. Also due to it's light color and porosity, stains from red wine and highly-pigmented liquids are likely to stain the surface. One way to avoid this is to seal the stone and always wipe spills immediately. On a side note; removing wine stains from marble is easy to accomplish with acidic foods such as lemons or tomatoes.
