Pros and Cons of Marble Countertop

Marble is known for it’s spectacular beauty and elegant looks. However, it is a much more porous stone than Quartz & Granite therefore absorbs liquids (wine, juice) much easier and deeper making it hard or nearly impossible to remove stains. Marble is also a much softer stone than Quartz and Granite making it very prone to scratches and etching.

Marble is not recommended for use as countertops in the kitchen but it is a popular choice for backsplashes or fireplaces as it stands up well to heat.

With annual sealing and proper maintenance (keeping clean and dry) it could be used in lower traffic areas like bathroom or office.
