Rich Beauty that Transforms Rooms
Marble is one of the most beautiful natural stones in the world. Michelangelo used marble for some of his finest sculptures, and you can choose marble countertops to bring that kind of spectacular beauty to your home. They turn ordinary rooms into extraordinary kitchens and baths, and when coordinated with new cabinetry, fixtures, and home décor, the transformation is amazing.
There are countless variations of marble based on their origin, and each type has unique colors and veining. Even when the marble has the same origin, every slab is unique as the marble will vary in the size of the grains and the amount of veining. There are finish options too: Honed (matte), polished, and leather. All this variation combines to make it fun to find your slab.
Throughout the ages, marble has been chosen as the building material for most important structures in the world and has withstood the test of time. However, marble is the softer of the countertop choices and does come with a bit more maintenance. But as a strong natural stone, it is still highly durable, and with a little extra care will age gracefully with your home.
While marble is considered extravagant, it does not necessarily come with a bigger price tag compared to other natural stone countertops. For those considering the resale value of their home or building, marble is a wonderful material to select because the return on investment can be the highest. Marble also ages and patinas beautifully, which can add even more value to the sale.
