Adding Marble Countertops in a Bathroom

White marble comes from limestone, and while colored marble comes from limestone also, the color comes from other minerals.  Marble is typically seen in lighter shades, but it can also be found in dark and even black. It is a soft stone and it can stain easily.  However, annual sealing can resolve that issue. Marble countertops usually have a polished finish, but if you choose a honed finish, it won’t show scratches as much.  

To keep your marble countertop beautiful, it is important to wipe up any spills as soon as you notice them. Although it is possible to remove some stains from marble, it’s best to avoid any liquids or materials that may stain it. Daily upkeep of marble countertops easy and simply entails mild detergent and a soft cloth. Always avoid abrasive cleaners, especially those that contain ammonia. Sealing your countertops once a year also protects the marble from staining and discoloration.

Marble countertops can add considerable value to any home.  Marble countertops are particularly sought after for a luxurious, high end look and feel for a master bathroom.
