It is absolutely no secret that when homeowners elect to upgrade and renovate their kitchens, marble countertops are at the top of the home improvement list. Truly marble is a tremendous choice for updating and upgrading your kitchen. Marble counters can be easily and beautifully maintained and cared for regardless of how many people might be traipsing around in your kitchen each day.
When it comes to choosing your ideal kitchen countertops, many people tend to choose classic white marble since the surface it affords has been highly favored for decades. Marble is a natural material that affords much variety depending upon the specific species that is chosen and how you choose to have it cut. Further, marble presents with a delightful natural pattern and surely there is no material quite as natural as white marble. It is a spectacular natural stone with an appearance all its own, which is why so many people find favor with it.
Marble is near to being a perfect product since it is quite dense and relatively nonporous and quite durable and stain resistant as well. If you choose wisely when selecting your marble kitchen countertops, are aware of what you can expect, and know how to properly care for them, then surely you will find your white marble countertops to be quite beautiful, appealing and every bit functional for your newly renovated kitchen design and sure to last a lifetime.
There is a wide range of marble countertops to choose from today. Though most people tend to favor the white stone, there are indeed hundreds of other varieties as well. Marble comes available in taupe, gold, red, green and black as well for kitchen countertops, though most experts will tend to suggest white marble the majority of the time. You may ask why. The answer is simply because kitchen acids can leave a distinct whitish mark that is far more noticeable on varied colored marble than it would be on white marble. However, despite this common fact, the type of marble you should use for your kitchen countertops truly comes down to your own personal choice and favorite.
In addition to choosing the color of your marble countertops, it is essential that you choose the proper slabs as well. With that said, the professionals here at Elite Stoneworks can assist with the proper selection of marble slabs since they are trained and skilled to know where the veining is going to be located on your countertop. When choosing the slabs it is very much an art in that the placement of the stone markings is critical to the appropriate layout and design. For this reason, we highly recommend the use of longer pieces of marble since the seams on the longer slabs are minimal making a mirrored appearance of multiple pieces much easier.
Our expert kitchen designers can assist you with your selection of slabs so as to afford a light, soft and even peaceful look to your kitchen countertops and not as much a hard or harsh appearance. Your marble countertops should suit the existing look, style and décor of your home. The natural stone look of marble has been consistently used in countless kitchen renovations we have performed here in Frisco, Texas and in the surrounding areas over the years and much like the marble itself, the sealers for marble have also been greatly enhanced over the years.
Though marble is very porous, far more porous than granite, it can definitely chip and it etches as well, which means that your newly installed marble countertops will surely require a good deal of love and care to maintain their elegant state and appearance. Be certain to wipe any spills on your marble countertops right away so as to avoid any excessive markings. The many clients we have worked with love their marble countertops and they come to appreciate the patina that their beautifully designed countertops attain over time. Often we are told how the nature of marble so perfectly satisfies them and suits the style and décor of their homes and that the graying and light veining of their marble countertops is every bit as appealing and elegant over time as at the time of the initial installation itself.
Whether you prefer the ever popular heavy veining marble or are in search of a more polished, peaceful look and design, the professionals here at Elite Stoneworks can handle it all.
