Marble is a natural stone that has formed from limestone under countless years of heat and pressure. As a construction material, marble has always been a symbol of luxury. Even today, marble worktops lend an air of elegance and refined taste to your home. Marble comes in a wide range of colours, but not all types are suitable for worktops, which is why you should always carefully consider which kind of marble to use. We will gladly offer our help with that!
Marble has been a highly valued material in interior starting from antiquity, and even today marble worktops create an undeniable aura of luxury without the risk of looking old-fashioned. Marble is simply timeless!
Marble worktops are also physically tough and resistant to heat, however depending on their type may be more susceptible to scratches and various kinds of stains. With marble, it is especially important to avoid staining it with acidic substances, as they may corrode the surface of the worktop to the point where it loses its shine.
Marble also needs regular maintenance with a special sealant in order to reduce its absorbency. When selecting marble, you should take care and keep your habits in mind, but if you keep a few simple rules in mind, marble worktops can also maintain their beautiful appearance for a very long time. For everyday maintenance, a damp cloth can be used.
