From Michelangelo in Italy to Carpeaux in France, from Praxiteles in Ancient Greece to Rodin in Romania, marble has been the fascination of many famous artists and great empires alike. There are countless world wonders such as the Taj Mahal in Agra, the Pantheon in Rome, and the Washington Monument in Washington, D.C. that were made with expert craftsmanship through the usage of marble. While marble was considered only a luxury back in the day for the rich and privileged, today it is readily accessible for any type of remodeling occasion whether it’s your kitchen countertops, bathroom countertops, laundry room, the top of your radiators, or your fireplace.

Just like other stones used for vanity transformation, marble takes millions of years to be formed under a tremendous amount of heat and pressure. During this process, marble gains impurities through the addition of other minerals which gives each slab its distinct look and genuine marble types are recognized through their inherent patterns of veins. While the range of color can be quite extensive, the base color mainly comes in white, black, brown, and pink. Thus, no marble slab is the same as one another. The result from this transformation also gives marble its crystalline look and this allows the stone to be polished for an increased lifetime.

In terms of room transformation, few stones can match the elegance depicted by a richly veined marble. Marble countertops are not only easy to carve in comparison to granite countertops to create more detailed models but they pose a distinct beauty thanks to their elusive and sophisticated look. They are also quite durable and heat-resistant, which ensures that they will last for a long time if taken care of.

Things to be careful about when considering marble are that even though they are quite sturdy as a stone they require more care in comparison to other countertop options such as granite countertops. They are prone to discoloration and must not be in direct contact with heat, chemicals, and acidic substances whenever possible. We never suggest placing a hot pot on marble as this can create discolorations on the stone. For the same reason, during cleaning marble must be approached with soft chemicals such as the ones used for daily hygienic routines. They are also prone to scratches and require attention in this matter. Remember, the same reason that allowed marble to be carved into beautiful statues and artworks is also its susceptibility to damages. All in all, as with everything sophisticated and beautiful, marble must be taken care of with utmost importance as it is a luxurious material.
