White Marble Kitchen Countertops

For those who love the antiques and sculptures from Ancient Greece and the Roman Empire, one will notice that the medium used to make such beautiful objects is marble. It is a form of limestone, or a “metaphoric rock” to geologists, that quickly became associated with luxury and importance. The Taj Mahal, the Pantheon, the statue David, and Aon Center in Chicago are all made of marble, sculpted and built upon. The dominant color of marble is white, which can be found in Greece, India, Italy, and in parts of the United States. In short, it has a large history going back centuries deep and now is affordable and used a lot to consumers in the interior design business.

There are more than one kind of white marble to choose from, but Cararra mable is the more popular one picked out because it is the most popular and widely available to get. Coming from the quarries of Northern Italy, Carrara marble has been the favorite for home decorators and renovators in the kitchen, as well as in their bathrooms. Other popular marble used are Calacatta and Statuary marble; Calacatta is a rarer stone with thicker grey veining, and Statuary has a crisper white brackground to the smaller, smearish veining that almost has a painted quality to it. For buyers, it just depends how big of a budget there is and what style of marble is preferable to the owner.

When homeowners plan out the design of their new countertop, they also take into account how the marble will be cut and how it will be used. There’s a risk of chipping if the edge is sharp, but the risk is reduced if the edges are curved. For some, the white marble will be a décor, just a surface to make things pretty to people when they go in the kitchen. Those who use it extensively will be tentative to preventing stains from seeping in, although some have no issue with anything that blends with the grey veins. But acids could be a problem as it etches the marble, which is why complete maintenance on the marble countertop must be done after usage. Some see it as a con for white marble, but for many others, it is worth the mini hassle.

The Greeks and Romans developed a classic taste that continues today in the kitchens of the world. For a beautiful kitchen that is very sustainable, elegant, and attractive, white marble is the way to go. It shines and can easily be upkept like new with good daily polishing and instant care for any stains, although some prefer it to let it age to mesh with the grey veins within. Some of us may not like the constant maintainence with the fear of ruining the shine with anything acidic, but one who uses their kitchen a lot will not mind giving the tender, loving care to a countertop. It is widely used, bought, and recommended by interior designers to use white marble, whatever kind one prefers, when decorating a beautiful kitchen.
