Marble is a natural stone that is quarried from the earth, and it comes in a variety of colours and patterns. The most popular types of marble used for worktops include Carrara, Calacatta and Statuario. These types of marble are known for their white or light-colored background with distinctive grey or gold veins running through them. The veining in each piece of marble is unique, making every worktop a one-of-a-kind piece.
The marble worktops we produce at Marble & Granite are known for their aesthetic. Marble is also heat resistant, making it a great choice for kitchens where hot pans and pots are frequently used. Even so, it is always best to use a trivet rather than place hot pans directly on the surface. It is a cold stone and as such, is the perfect surface on which to roll out dough and pastry. Marble worktops can last for many years with proper care and maintenance.
One of the main advantages of marble worktops in Romford is their versatility. They can be used in a variety of settings, including kitchens, bathrooms, and even outdoor spaces for things such as patio flooring and steps. Marble can also be used in a variety of design styles, from traditional to modern. It can be polished to a high shine or honed to a matte finish, depending on the look you are going for.
However, marble worktops do have some drawbacks. They are a porous material and can stain easily. Thus, it is important to seal the surface to protect it from stains and spills. Marble is also a relatively soft stone, so you have to take care not to scratch or chip it.
Overall, marble worktops are a beautiful and durable choice for homeowners in Romford. They are a natural stone that comes in a variety of colours and patterns and can be used in a diversity of settings and design styles. However, they do require regular maintenance and care to maintain their beauty and durability.
At Marble & Granite we are often asked to produce worktops for customers in Kingston, and a lot of them opt for granite. This is partly because it is such a hard stone that it can tolerate the daily wear and tear of the kitchen. Granite worktops in Kingston – and for that matter anywhere else – do need to be sealed because as with all natural stones they are to some degree porous.
But that aside, granite worktops come in a wide selection of different colours and patterns and being a natural stone, it means that every slab is unique, as it is formed from the various minerals that were in the earth’s surface at the time. With a granite worktop you can be certain that nobody else will have worktops that are the same as yours.
