4 Reasons to Choose Marble for Your Countertop Material

So you've decided that it's time to update your countertops. New countertops can completely change the look and feel of your kitchen and bathroom. Now that you have decided that it's time for an update, your next step is to decide on the material to go with. At Metro Marble & Granite, we offer a wide selection of countertop materials of both natural stone and quartz. All of our countertop materials are gorgeous and would look great in your home but today we would like to focus on one material in particular -marble! Marble is a beautiful natural stone and today, we have four reasons you should choose marble for your new countertops at the Lake of the Ozarks!

Classic Material

When choosing a countertop material, you want to make sure to choose something that will not only add value to your home but will be timeless and withstand the test of time. While something may be “in” during the time of your remodel, it’s best not to pick a trendy option. It may be trendy one day, but it can easily be out of style the next. Marble countertops have been around for a long time and they won’t be going anywhere in the future. If you choose marble as your countertop material, know that you are choosing a material that is classic and timeless.

Endless Color Options

Unlike a manufactured countertop material, the color choices for marble are endless. Each slab of marble is unique and has its own color depending on the rock that was transformed. If pure limestone undergoes the metamorphism, a pure white marble countertop is created. The type of rocks creates the unique color, but the existence of other materials within the groups of rock can also alter the color.

Easy to Maintain

With any type of countertop, it’s important to know what type of maintenance is required. It’s important to have marble countertops properly sealed during their installation and then resealed at least once per year. Daily maintenance for marble consists of cleaning the surface with warm water, mild dish soap, and a soft cloth. You don’t want to use harsh cleaners or rags because it can destroy the surface of the marble. Marble is also prone to scratching, so it’s important to use a cutting board and be careful when using sharp objects. The most important thing to remember about marble countertops is that they are not stain resistant. It’s important to keep any dark liquids away from these countertops. Even there are any spills, it’s important to clean them up quickly to keep it from staining.


Another important factor to keep in mind is the durability of the countertop material. You want a countertop that will be able to withstand the day-to-day use whether you have young kids or not. Marble is an extremely durable countertop and they are extremely heat resistant. One important thing to keep in mind is that marble countertops need to be properly sealed when they are installed. You should also stay up to date with their routine maintenance in order to keep them in their best condition.
