For those homeowners looking to add some elegance and visual impact to their home, nothing beats the style and grace of marble countertops. Usually reserved for the kitchen or bathroom, they can actually add a dramatic aspect to the décor of any room in a house. Deciding on what type and style of marble to use is not particularly difficult, but there are certain factors that should to be considered.

Why Use Marble?

Marble is prized by both sculptors and interior designers for several reasons. It is amazingly resistant to heat and renowned for its outstanding durability. It does, however, require a fair degree of maintenance to retain its superb look and feel. In particular, marble must be properly sealed by professionals after installation to avoid staining. In addition, spills, especially ones involving acidic liquids, should be wiped up as soon as possible.

What Exactly is Marble?

For all its beauty, marble is simply a type of rock. More specifically, it is a metamorphic rock – meaning that it has been changed from its original composition of carbonate materials – usually limestone – through the effects of intense pressure and heat on the substrate and then its subsequent recrystallization.

Marble comes in a variety of colors depending on what other minerals are included in the mix. For example, limestone with a high magnesium silicate content will usually result in serpentine – a dark green marble, sometimes mottled or spotted like a snake’s skin, hence the name.
