Marble Worktops – Kitchens, Bathrooms and Flooring
Any beautiful building you gaze at, which has remained in pristine condition for decades, is almost always guaranteed to be made from natural marble. When it comes to natural stones, marble worktops for kitchens, bathrooms, floors and other surfaces is among our specialties.
Why marble for kitchen worktops, bathrooms, and other surfaces?
Marble is a metaphoric rock, so that makes it a common choice for a variety of surfaces, including flooring, for instance. What this means is that the original minerals become easily crystalised through a naturally-occurring process. This results in the unique sheen having almost infinite patterns and combinations. The interesting thing is all of these patterns and combinations retain the original marble rock in some form or the other.
One of the most common uses of natural marble, however, is kitchen worktops. Marble kitchen worktops make for an excellent kitchen addition, not just in terms of aesthetics but also materials – anything made from marble is really easy to maintain.
What other benefits are there of marble kitchen worktops?
Marble worktops for kitchens can be used in both residential and commercial applications. Following installation, you’ll get even more attached to your kitchen than ever before, because a marble kitchen worktop makes the kitchen look ‘fuller’, thus, making it more inviting.
Your kitchen is one of those places where you can just forget everything and relax. After a long day at the office, all you want to do is sit down with family and friends, and do a little catching up over some great food and drinks. The best part? If anything spills over your marble kitchen worktop, all you need is a microfibre cloth and a chemical-free cleaning solution. That’s all the maintenance marble worktops for kitchens require.
Durability is another major benefit of installing marble for kitchen worktops. No wonder it’s a top choice for not just homeowners but also architects and interior designers. Marble is a highly versatile natural stone, so it’s, therefore, also a very highly acclaimed and sought after stone. Installing marble worktops for bathrooms and kitchens means you can boost your home’s market value.
Marble worktops are also incredibly resistant to high-heat sources, hot and cold weather, staining, and fissures. They can take a lot of beating and daily wear-and-tear before you ever feel the need to call us for maintenance.
You’ll find that marble is the most common natural stone used in historical buildings and monuments – this is not by chance as those constructions need to withstand weather elements and daily wear – marble is an ideal choice. This is a firm testimony to its unmatched durability.
All this simply adds to its credibility as a stone, so if your mind is set on having customised marble worktops for kitchen, bathroom or flooring installed in your home, you’ll certainly have chosen a formidable material!
