What is a Marble Countertop

Kitchen or bathroom countertops can be made from a variety of materials including marble. Marble is a stone known for its hardness, beauty, and relatively high price tag compared to other stones and imitation materials. Real marble countertops provide a classy and timeless aesthetic, but in addition to their higher upfront cost require extensive care during installation.

Today, marble is used in countertops mainly for its unrivaled aesthetic qualities since there are many alternatives on the market that offer similar functionality. For example, cultured marble is more affordable after you consider the fact that it comes with all needed sealant and resin properties to allow for virtually zero maintenance in comparison to real, pure marble.
