IS MARBLE SUITABLE FOR A KITCHEN COUNTERTOP?
No, marble is not a good choice for a kitchen counter top. Although it can be sealed, it is not as dense as granite and therefore it is more porous and susceptible to being stained in a highly used area like a kitchen. It is much softer and it will chip and crack under frequent use.
IS MARBLE REALLY APPROPRIATE TO USE IN LIVING AREAS?
Yes. Since ancient times, marble has been used in all areas of temples and later in many churches, from furnishings to floors. These Greek and Turkish marbles have proven as durable as materials traditionally considered to be sturdier with the added benefit of creating a warm welcoming atmosphere.
