4 Myths About Marble Countertops DebunkedJuly 6th, 2017
When people talk to us about adding new countertops to their kitchen or bathroom, they immediately dismiss marble as a viable option because they’ve heard something bad about this material.
Although marble is not nearly as popular as granite or quartz, it still has plenty of merit as a stunning, value-adding countertop material. If you’ve heard something about marble that made you want to avoid it, check out these common myths about marble and why they simply aren’t true:
- Marble is too expensive–Not all marble is incredibly expensive. In fact, we can show you marble options that work within nearly any budget. Keep in mind that some slabs are more expensive than others, so you might have to pay more for a certain type of slab.
- Marble isn’t useable–Some people believe that since marble is a luxury stone, it doesn’t have a place in the everyday household. Even if you don’t keep your home in a showroom state of order and cleanliness every day, marble can still be a great material for your kitchen or bathroom.
- Marble requires extensive maintenance–Even though you do have to put in a little time in to maintain marble countertops, this material is easy to clean and take care of. Marble can also stand up to hard use day in and day out, making it a good option for busy families or those who enjoy cooking.
- Scratches ruin marble surfaces–Since marble is a relatively soft stone, it is prone to scratching over time. To prevent scratches, just be careful about what you set down on your countertops and always use cutting boards, hot pads, and coasters.
