Marble Kitchen Countertops

Are you thinking about upgrading your kitchen to add more style and taste to it? We recommend installing marble kitchen countertops. Here is everything you need to know about marble kitchen countertops.

What are marble kitchen countertops?

Marble kitchen countertops are made from a metamorphic rock. To get a good idea, metamorphic rocks transform over time due to intense pressure and heat. Initially, marble starts as soft limestone made of calcite. When exposed to high heat and pressure, the limestone recrystallizes, changes its texture and causes the calcite crystals to interlock and grow to form marble.

Marble countertops are made by cutting large blocks of the marble rock from the quarry, then reducing the blocks to thin slabs. The slabs are then carefully shaped and polished into various shapes to prepare them for installation.

There are numerous marble countertops available for use as kitchen countertops. Many marble kitchen countertops are defined by the type of veining as well as the color of the countertop. The diversity of marble kitchen countertops allows homeowners to explore their tastes by installing stylish, yet unique kitchen countertops.

For instance, the Calacatta Michelangelo marble is perfect for a minimalist kitchen design.  The Crema Valencia marble is a great option for homeowners who want to add a splash of color into their kitchen due to the red veins of the marble.
