Marble is the most elegant natural stone rich with beauty. A truly unique look and feel, images of extravagance and wealth come to mind. It’s been used on almost every surface in the bathroom, including vanities, tub decks, shower walls and flooring. The depth and character of natural stone cannot be matched by any man-made surface. Marble, like granite, does not depreciate with time and adds value to your home.

When deciding on material for your countertop you should keep in mind that marble is porous and it stains easily. But this doesn’t mean that it should not be used. Marble is ideal for use in low traffic areas. But for the high traffic use of a kitchen countertop, a floor, marble just means higher maintenance.

Marble is used primarily in other settings than the kitchen as countertops. Marble was the favored stone of artists and sculptors in ancient Greece and Rome because of its durability and waxy look due to its low index of refraction. Nowadays in construction, it is primarily used in bathroom vanities, fireplace surrounds, hearts, and tile stone. Marble’s elegance and beauty gives any home an appealing quality.

Marble fireplace surrounds are gorgeous and marble is capable of sustaining the heat without getting damaged. Marble hearts are unsurpassable in homeliness especially when made out of white marble. Marble vanity tops and marble bathrooms work incredibly well and dazzle the eye. Marble is applicable in many suggestible places, giving environments a clean, pure, and graceful look.

If you choose Marble for your countertop, Rockstella Stonery specialists will give you proper instructions on maintenance. Daily usage of Rockstella Stonery granite and marble cleaner will help you to keep your Marble countertop clean and beautiful for years to come.

Stone Care | RockStella Stonery Inc

Natural stone is the most durable and functional hard surface available but like carpet, wood and even synthetic surfaces, proper care is required to maintain its maximum beauty. After new stone is installed, permanent damage often occurs from neglect, incorrect cleaning methods, and using chemicals that are not formulated for stone care.
