As a luxurious and gentler option for your countertops – marble can be used in the design of kitchens or bathrooms, although the potential for wear is slightly higher than alternative materials like granite or quartz. Because of certain type’s moderate level of porosity, it can be harmed by spills or moving objects across it. Scratches and stains will inevitably occur over time if in a high traffic area. One benefit of marble comes with the repairs. Marble can be sanded down or scrubbed to remove any damage from acids or scratches, then resealed.
Depending on the location, the pristine and delicate nature of marble could be preserved for quite some time. A decorated bathroom for instance, would not see nearly the amount of wear and tear as a main area, like the kitchen counter. The surface of marble in any location must be sealed during the installation process to ensure the material is not exposed. It is relatively easy to clean marble, and always should be done with a neutral cleaning agent.
Ultimately, many homeowners are drawn to marble because of its classic aesthetic. Reminiscent of an authentic pizza restaurant or hometown bakery, marble has been used for generations, and will continue to carry that nostalgia – making it a forever favorite.
