Marble is known for its beautiful patterns and high quality look and feel; however, it is also known as being difficult to care for and expensive. Would you believe us if we told you the last two statements weren’t true? It’s time to clear the air! Read on for some marble myth-busting fun.
Myth #1: Scratches will ruin your marble.
While marble is indeed a softer stone than others that are used for countertops, one single scratch will not ruin the entire piece. In fact, it might just add to the overall look of the stone.
Myth #2 Marble is nearly impossible to care for.
This is not true at all. While you will need to take the time to clean the surface properly, seal it, and clean up spills right away, caring for it, and keeping it in top condition are not impossible tasks.
Myth #3: Marble stains easily, so you shouldn’t use it in a kitchen or anyplace where spills happen regularly.
While marble does stain easily, it’s just as easy to wipe up a spill immediately after it occurs. Even if you can’t get to the spill right away and it sets in, the pattern of the marble will conceal most stains, so it won’t be noticeable in the long run.
Myth #4: Marble is way too expensive and out of my budget.
You’d be surprised at the many different price points available for marble countertops. There is more than likely one that fits right into your kitchen renovation budget! The many different types of marble make it easy to find one that matches your décor, as well.
Marble countertops, when done right, are a great addition to a kitchen. They stand out, and can add to the appeal and value of your home. Talk to the experts at Stoneworks to find the perfect piece of marble to fit your budget and style.
