When and When Not to Choose Marble Countertops

Marble countertops are among the most beautiful you’ll find anywhere. Although they have a higher price point than some other countertop choices, many people consider them to be well worth the investment. However, marble might not be the best choice for every space.

  • Is glamour the goal? If you want the ultimate in sophistication and elegance, then marble is your best bet. Just as marble has been used in stunning works of art for many years, marble countertops offer a timeless beauty that is unsurpassed.
  • Are you clean by nature? If you tend to be pretty neat and tidy, then marble could be a great choice. As a natural material, marble countertops can last forever, and with the right amount of vigilance, they will continue to look beautiful. However, if you’re sharing your space with experimenting toddlers, doing a lot of messy cooking, or plan to host parties often, you run the risk of staining. If you still want the elegance of marble, a good option is to put marble in spaces that are lower traffic and find another beautiful coordinating option for the spaces you use the most.
  • Do you want something truly one-of-a-kind? No two pieces of marble are exactly alike. When you come to our showroom at The Granite Guy, you will see that we have not just small samples, but large slabs to help you see what your marble countertops could look like, but the piece we bring into your home will be truly unique.
