The kitchen is one of the main selling points of any home. There are a lot of things that you can do to ensure that it will be a beautiful centerpiece of your residence. And this includes having marble countertops inside your kitchen. Your apprehension is understandable. After all, it’s not the cheapest option out there. However, you’ll surely agree that when it comes to our kitchen and our home in general, we sometimes need to spend a little more for something extra special.
These advantages make investing in a marble countertop a no-brainer:
1. Every Marble is Uniquely Beautiful
The veins you see on marble is the product of the amassed heat and pressure deep within the Earth. It is a natural process that turns limestone into a beautiful piece of rock. Varying conditions combined with the different nearby elements make up the appearance of every marble. As a result, each slab is unique. Hence, your marble countertop is unlike any other in the world.
2. Marble Countertops are Easy to Clean
Most of us love to cook. It’s the cleanup that’s the pain in the neck.
But don’t worry. You just need mild soap and warm water to clean your marble surface. For stubborn stains, a miracle solution of baking soda mixed with water should do the trick. Just leave it overnight before wiping it down.
Marble may be porous, but a simple remedy should easily fix that. Regular sealing should protect your marble from staining. You only need to reseal once or twice a year. And that’s it.
3. It makes Your Kitchen Look Bigger and Brighter
We all love big, spacious kitchens. But, the reality is, for the most of us, we only have enough room to move between the cooktop and sink. But fret not. A marble countertop can help you make your kitchen look bigger and brighter. Thanks to its natural tendency to reflect light, you’ll be feeling sunny and in the mood to cook (or maybe wash the dishes) even when the clouds are overcast.
4. Marble can Resist Extreme Heat
There is a reason why you see marble in most fireplaces. It resists heat. It does not burn. In fact, you can actually put hot pans on it directly. We, however, do not recommend it because it can ruin your stone’s natural finish.
5. Marble Feels Cool to Touch
Marble’s natural properties make it the perfect preparation surface for baking. Yes, you read that right. With a marble countertop, you can easily try your hands on making those beautiful cupcake recipes you see on Pinterest and Facebook. You can use this opportunity, too, to make it a fun bonding experience with your kids. Who know, this could be the start of a new small business for you.
6. Marble Countertops Offer a Great Return on Your Investment
While there are a lot more affordable options out in the market, nothing beats the Cadillac of all countertops. Countertop materials, such as ceramic tiles, natural stones, stainless steel, not only vary in price, but also in style, thickness, and quality.
But if you want to make your kitchen have that 5-star hotel look, look no further.
Marble is both classic and elegant. That is why you see it in most, if not all, high-end hotels. On top of that, it is also highly durable, which means that your marble slab will last you a very long time.
And when you decide to sell your home later on, potential homebuyers we see your marble countertop and will fall in love with it.
The above-mentioned benefits of marble countertops should help you decide if it fits in your kitchen. Installed by the right countertop fabricator, you’ll definitely love yours for a very long time.
