Elegant Marble Countertops

Marble comes from limestone, and is typically seen in lighter shades, but it can also be found in dark and even a black color with white veining.  Although it is a soft stone and can stain easily, annual countertop sealing and proper care can take care of that issue. Marble countertops have either a high polished or a honed finish, which can actually hide scratches.

To keep marble countertops beautiful, it is important to wipe up any spills as soon as they occur. Although it is sometimes possible to remove stains from marble, it’s best to avoid any liquids or materials that may stain it. The routine cleaning of marble countertops is easy and all you need is a mild detergent and a soft cloth. Always avoid harsh cleaners because they can scratch the surface. Sealing your countertops once a year also protects the marble from staining and discoloration.
Marble countertops add value to your home and are sought after for a luxurious and elegant look and feel for any master bathroom.
