Marble Countertops are an Investment

Marble countertops cost less today than they did just a few years ago. Marble countertops are an investment, and will add value to your home. Home owners, as well as home buyers are increasingly looking for more than just functionality in their bathrooms. Marble countertops are particularly sought after because of their unique and luxurious beauty.

 

White marble actually comes from pure white limestone, while colored marble is a result of other minerals coming in contact with limestone.  It is typically found in lighter shades, but it can also be found in dark and even black shades! The surface area is typically highly polished or can be found in a honed finish.
The daily care of marble countertops is simple- all you need is water, a mild detergent and a soft cloth. You can even find cleaners that are specifically formulated for just stone countertops. If any spills should happen, it is very important to wipe it up as soon as possible. Marble is a porous stone, so to avoid staining and discoloration, annual sealing is strongly recommended to keep the countertops looking their best.
