Marble kitchen worktops – what should you remember about?

Marble is natural stone, which for centuries, has been utilised in the building industry, in home finishing and decorating. It is considered to be superb and prestigious material. It delights everyone with its unquestionable and everlasting beauty. However, marble is not the first choice for kitchen worktops. Granite, which is believed to be more lasting and more durable, is the most often selected material as home finishing, meanwhile marble can also be used to produce elegant kitchen worktops, wall or bathroom tiles, provided it is properly maintained. Regular care is a must. It is fundamental since natural marble may absorb water, grease and other colouring substances. For these reasons, kitchen marble worktops need appropriate maintenance. You should also bear in mind, that marble worktops are more exposed to scratching, mechanical damage than let’s say granite tops. Which is why, a lot of food preparation should not be done directly on the worktop, particularly chopping or slicing. If you settle upon a marble worktop, you should provide yourself with a chopping board.

For the routine maintenance, you should opt for the cleaning products suitable for marble. Thanks to this, we will be sure our precious worktop will not be damaged during cleaning operation
