What is marble?

Characterised by coloured veining that produces the much revered ‘marbled’ effect, marble worktops are a classic choice for any kitchen.

A natural stone, marble starts life as limestone, but intense heat and pressure alter it physically and chemically over time until it is transformed into marble.

Durable, hardwearing, and stunningly beautiful, marble worktops are a fantastic option.

Why choose a marble worktop?

Once considered a true sign of wealth, marble worktops are now considerably more accessible for a range of budgets – making them one of the most favoured worktop solutions on the market.

Not only does marble look good, it performs well too. A marble worktop can endure the rigours of a busy kitchen, while still upholding its elegance.

Benefits of a marble worktop

Unsure if marble is right for you? Check out some of the most common reasons why marble is such a popular choice:

– It looks great – obvious but true!

– The distinctive natural veining of marble worktops is never replicated twice. Meaning that you are purchasing a worktop truly unique to you.

– Marble is softer than other natural stones, such as granite. The advantage of this being that it makes it easier to work with. So if you’ve got plans for an intricate design, or are hankering after a fancy edge profile, a marble worktop is likely to be your best option.

– Marble may be softer than granite but it’s still incredibly strong, making it a hardwearing kitchen surface that is naturally resistant to cracks and scratches.

– If you’re a keen baker or like to keep the heat down in your kitchen, marble is famed for retaining a cool surface temperature – perfect for pastry.

 

Colour and style options

Looking for a kitchen worktop that’s as unique as you are? You’ll find it with marble.

Colour distinctions in marble occur as a result of mineral impurities in the stone and no two slabs of marble worktop are ever the same – meaning you can truly stand out with your décor and wow your visitors.

Slabs, rather than tiles, are normally used for kitchen worktops.  This allows the artistic veining that is the hallmark of marble worktops, to be exposed in all its glory.

White with a grey marble is one of the most popular colourways as these shades contrast perfectly to clearly define the veining – but you’ll find plenty of variations to choose from.

You can also choose from a range of thickness – typically 20mm, 30mm or 50mm

Whether you are looking for an icy white aesthetic, or prefer a more patterned effect, our choice of marble worktops will be sure to include something perfect to complement your décor.

Things to consider before buying a marble worktop

Marble worktops are a great choice – you won’t get any arguments on that point from us!

But, as with any purchase, whether marble is right for you depends on a number of factors and it’s important to consider all elements of a marble worktop to assess how well it fulfils your needs.

Take, for example, the weight. Marble worktops are extremely heavy, so if you’re looking to replace a worktop you need to be confident that the existing cupboards can take the strain.

Another point to consider is the cost. Whilst we always strive to offer competitive pricing for marble worktops, it is a product at the higher end of the market.

At the Marble Store, we want you to be 100% happy with your worktops and are committed to helping you find the right surface for your desired look, needs and budget. Why not get in touch for an accurate quote and to discuss your requirements in more detail?

Looking after marble worktops

Keeping marble worktops looking as good as new is easy – and with the right care, they can last a lifetime!

All you need is a damp cloth and a light cleaner – such as regular washing up liquid – to gently wipe over the surface and keep it looking as good as new.
