What is a Marble Countertop?

Marble is a type of metamorphic rock that is known for its beauty and high price, but still some choose to use it as countertop material in a kitchen. While there is no denying the exquisite nature of marble, it is one of the stones that require extensive care and the application of sealant. If marble is not properly cared for, it can quickly be permanently stained.

Homeowners that choose to incorporate marble into a kitchen countertop scheme would do so simply for the pure beauty of it. While it shares all the properties of other stone countertops, marble has a unique color quality that shows dramatic contrast between the overall color and the veins of alternate color. The alternative to using pure marble is to use cultured marble for countertops. While the price is not any less expensive considering the fact that all cultured countertops are one off custom creations, it is the incorporated sealant and resin properties that make it a lower maintenance alternative.
