Beautiful long lasting, marble is especially suited for kitchen countertops.
It adds elegance and style to any kitchen, from the most modest to the more luxurious.
You can get years of durable service out of marble, but it has to be properly sealed and maintained to reduce stains and scratching.
Because marble is softer than granite and soapstone, it can scratch easier.
Marble is very expensive, that's why it is often just used on a kitchen island or a specific area of the countertop, like the baking area. It's very rare to see it used on all kitchen countertops.
