Marble Countertops for kitchen and bathroom

If you are thinking about to renewal your kitchen or bathroom and adding more style, you should choose a marble countertop.

We recommend installing marble kitchen or bathroom countertops. Here is a guide of everything you need to know about marble countertops.

What are marble countertops?

Marble countertops are made from metamorphic rock that transforms over time due to intense pressure and heat. Initially, marble starts as soft limestone made of calcite. When exposed to high heat and pressure, the limestone recrystallizes changes its texture, and causes the calcite crystals to interlock and grow to form marble.

Marble countertops are made by cutting large blocks of marble rock from the quarry, then reducing the blocks to thin slabs. The slabs are then carefully shaped and polished into various shapes to prepare them for installation.

Marble countertop for kitchen

There are numerous marble countertops available for use as kitchen countertops. Many marble kitchen countertops are defined by the type of veining as well as the color of the countertop. The diversity of marble kitchen countertops allows homeowners to explore their tastes by installing stylish, yet unique kitchen countertops.

For instance, the Calacatta Michelangelo marble is perfect for a minimalist kitchen design.  The Crema Valencia marble is a great option for homeowners who want to add a splash of color into their kitchen due to the red veins of the marble.
