Kitchen Countertops / September 5, 2018 / Darrence Miller
Disadvantages: This surface will either keep you busy or cause you to embrace its timeless patina. It’s softer and more porous than granite, meaning it scratches and stains easily. Acidic foods cause surface etching (though the appearance of the etching can be lessened with a honed finish).
Whether marble countertops conjure images of luxe elegance or handsome timeworn French kitchens, this classic surface occupies a design territory all its own. With a soft feel, a warmth that’s inimitable and unmistakable, a durability that keeps it in place for decades and a wide range of color choices, marble countertops might be the right choice for your kitchen.
