A thing of beauty
Many stones try, very hard, but none can match the undeniable splendor of marble.

Keep it cool
By nature, marble is not a great conductor of heat which makes it an ideal choice for a kitchen countertop. If you love baking, the stone’s inherent coolness will help you make that perfect pastry. It also keeps wear and tear caused by hot utensils at bay although, like with any other stone, you should avoid placing hot materials on its pristine surface.
Though marble is a soft stone, it still offers you astonishing durability while being easy to work with. Marble is every countertop designer’s dream come true. With marble you can unleash your creativity and aim for intricate and detailed work. It allows for delicate design details that simply cannot be carried out on hard stones like granite, where real damage can be caused to the stone if it is manipulated too much.
An easy find
Best of all, marble does not play hard to get! It is a widely available stone that you are very likely to encounter at every stone yard an at every fabricator’s workshop. Other stones like the quartz, or possibly, even the right type of granite might prove hard to find but not marble. Moreover, it comes in a variety of unique designs and a range of colors that make it an easy pick for a countertop.
With its classic good looks and its easy adaptability, marble is, and has always been, a favorite with home owners who rely on the stunning stone to bring a touch of glamour to their kitchens.
