Marble Countertop Slabs For Sale
For centuries, marble has been a hallmark of luxury and tradition. From architecture to artwork, marble is an ideal building material since it is capable of bearing immense weight. Just think of all those stunning marble columns in ancient architecture! Marble is a metamorphic stone, created when limestone is subject to enormous amounts of heat and pressure over long periods of time.
Marble rates a 3 on the Mohs hardness scale, and is considered a “soft” stone. In the kitchen, that means marble countertops can scratch and scuff more easily than other surfaces, such as granite or quartz. Marble is also a porous stone, so it’s more prone to staining due to harsh cleaning products or acidic liquids. You can use marble in the kitchen, as long as you are prepared to commit a little more diligence when it comes to upkeep, or a perspective shift when it comes to the imperfections caused by daily life. If this is acceptable, then yes, you can have those white marble kitchen countertops that you’ve always dreamed of!
