What to expect with marble

Luxury is the word that usually come to mind when you hear the word marble. Rightly so, it’s the stone used by some of the most beautiful architectural designs in the world.

Does that mean you can’t have marble? Of course not! Plenty of people use marble in all styles and designs of homes! I did not use marble in my new house, but you bet I’m going to try to find a place for a marble slab somewhere in the future…I just love it!

The thing with marble is you have to appreciate the character it will develop over time. As marble is used it will scratch and stain (if not wiped up) and this adds character to the stone. 

If you’re like me and wipe your countertop daily, marble is a completely fine choice for you. Even though marble is higher maintenance, the warmth & individual character each stone brings into your home will never be replicated. 

  • natural stone
  • softer density – it will scratch easier than other materials
  • it will stain if not wiped up/cleaned up in a timely matter
  • resistant to heat – this means it can tolerate something hot being set directly on it
  • comes in a variety of colors and designs
  • often has “movement” – this is the term countertop people use to describe gentle waves & swirls throughout the slab
  • considered a “luxury” item
  • can be refinished over time – it you don’t like the natural character it’s developed, it can be refinished to get a “new” look again
  • higher price point (if not the highest) of countertop materials. Avg cost: $70-$200 per/sqft

when i first started my countertop love affair...

… I was certain I would use brown fantasy on my island, I had fallen in love with this style. Alas, Mark was not okay with having marble as our island stone, so my eyes had to turn to other stones. 

I think now that we have natural stones in our home, I’m pretty sure Mark wouldn’t be as afraid of marble as what he once was…well, I’ll keep telling myself that anyway!
