Creating the Ultimate Blend of Elegance and Functionality


Marble and other stone countertops are beautiful, and they generally outlast all other kitchen surfaces. But because it is a calcareous stone, marble is softer and more porous than granite. Its permeability makes it susceptible to scratches, chips, and stains, and its luster can be dulled if not properly cared for. Many homeowners choose to confine it to an island or baking centre.


Marble is very soft, so it scratches and etches easily. It holds up to heat so is ideal for rolling out dough.


Marble is an expensive material and the prices vary depending on color and quality from $50 to $200 per square foot.



Marble is beautiful and luxurious but must be sealed to protect it from stains. Protect marble from acidic foods, vinegar, lemon and tomato will etch it instantly.


Marble as granite is not a green material, but because is not so hard as granite requires less energy to be cut and finish.

How to clean

Dust once or twice a week with a soft cloth, and wipe periodically with a cloth dampened in warm water and, if necessary, a bit of pH-neutral cleaner formulated for stone (available from stone suppliers).
