Benefits of Marble Countertops
Marble is a natural stone, perfect for natural stone countertops, meaning it's more resistant than many of the other available countertop materials to scratching, shattering, and splitting. In terms of its toughness, marble is smoother than granite, so appealing architectural features can be integrated.
Every piece is distinctive in appearance since marble was developed by a natural process. The region of origin and the relative combination of minerals in the original stone define the diverse variety of textures and colors used in marble.
Resistance to Heat
Marble countertops are also thermally resistant. Marble does not catch fire or flame, so by not putting a hot pan or pot on the surface without cover, it is prudent to maintain the polish.
For a very long period of time, marble has been used as a construction material, so its ability to stand harsh weather conditions is well known. You should continue to appreciate the elegance of marble for a lifetime as it is expertly built and well sealed and preserved.
Naturally, Marble remains cold
Making it the ideal surface for bakery products, since it usually stays below room temperature. This is why marble countertops are favored by bakers above many natural stones.
What distinguishes it from the other natural stones is the timeless, elegant look of marble countertops.
