Marble is a metamorphic rock, created through the process of metamorphism – a procedure whereby limestone is placed under immense heat and pressure.
What gives marble its unique appeal is its translucent quality, allowing you to see partially through the stone and this is one reason why marble is so frequently used in sculpting.
Marble has an elegant, dimensional aesthetic that is an extremely popular choice for living spaces.
The process of creating marble worktops involves cutting large chunks of marble stone and converting them into slabs. The marble slabs will then be shaped, sized and polished before being sent off to use as installation parts.
Marble is a classic, high-end style countertop choice for homeowners. In fact, it is the number one choice for a lot of people. Traditional, elegant and versatile, marble kitchen worktops are extremely durable as well as stunning to look at.
When choosing a marble worktop, you are automatically boosting the value of your home both financially and aesthetically.
Although it can be higher maintenance than other types of worktops such as quartz and granite, marble exudes an air of romance and can transform a room. An estimated 1 billion tons of carrara marble is used for baths and countertops in luxury homes across the globe.

The unique white and grey veining found in pure white marble such as carrara marble is a very popular choice for kitchen countertops. Even Quartz manufacturers such as Silestone have tried to recreate natural marble patterns because of public demand.
That being said, marble worktops are a great choice for homeowners who don’t mind spending a bit more time on maintenance and want to add a touch of glamour and sophistication to their kitchen space.

While marble is a very durable material, it is still porous and can be more susceptible to stains, especially red wine or oil.
To avoid this, ensure to thoroughly clean spills as soon as you see them. Stains that are detected quickly can be easily removed with a small cloth and warm, distilled water.
It is recommended that you use a natural cleaner on marble worktops and use a soft cloth or sponge.
Using hot water is often all that is needed to keep marble worktops clean but if you need to get rid of a more stubborn spill or stain, you can also use soap or a form of natural cleaning solution.
Marble worktops are breathtaking but do require a lot of maintenance in order to keep them looking pristine. If practicality is your priority, granite worktops are a great alternative.
Granite is generally cheaper than marble and can be more budget friendly, although the luxurious appeal of marble can significantly increase the value of a home because of its glamorous aesthetic.
Although maintenance is minimal, marble worktops do still require a level of care in order to preserve the stone. To keep them looking stylish and new, however, we recommend having your marble worktop professionally sealed every 6 months to keep it in great condition.
