About Marble Countertops

Marble is what is known as a metamorphic rock and can be found in regions all over the world. This natural stone is formed from carbonate materials that have been recrystallized beneath the earth’s surface. Most commonly, marble is formed from limestone and and various minerals like sand, iron oxides and clay.


Marble’s color and veining patterns are directly related to the amount and composition of minerals present during formation. For instance, marble that is formed in an area with high magnesium content will often create a green hue with serpentine patterns.

Kitchen Marble Countertops

Kitchen marble countertops will add an elevated level of sophistication, elegance, and timeless appeal to any design. From modern and shabby chic to classic and contemporary, kitchen marble countertops offer the versatility to compliment any design, style, and personal taste with ease.

Marble is a soft, highly-porous stone and will require a moderate amount of maintenance and upkeep. This natural porosity means your kitchen marble countertops are incredibly susceptible to staining and etching. Acidic materials like soda, citrus and fruit juices, coffee, alcohol, and tomato-based products should always be promptly and thoroughly cleaned to prevent damaging the surface of your stone.

It’s worth noting that due to this same porosity, it’s strongly recommended to include a high-quality sealant application with your countertop installation. This will help to protect your stone and prevent staining, etching, and discoloration over time. Typically, routine applications of a high-quality sealant will be needed each year to maintain and protect the natural beauty of your kitchen marble countertops.
