Marble has always been a top choice in homes in various forms due to its timeless beauty. There are other benefits to this stone as well. It maintains a natural cool temperature, which either in a kitchen or a bath is a pleasing element. Marble doesn’t conduct heat very well, so can remain cool longer, or return to a cooler temperature faster than many other stones. Marble is plentiful, and therefore isn’t as expensive as some other choices.
Marble Countertops Toronto
Marble countertops, including porcelain and soapstone types are the best choice in the home for a number of reasons. This is a versatile stone that is easy to maintain and can last for an extended period of time. It’s also an attractive and simple to fit into a colour scheme or theme.
The Many Pros for Marble Countertops
Fitting a colour scheme is the key to having the best possible appearance in for the kitchen. The countertop and the back splash typically take up a large space, so a misfit can have a jarring effect. Fortunately marble’s variety can easily match even unique colours. Hues of black, hue, yellow, pink, and gray are found in marble, and because of the veining in marble deeper colours will also run through the stone allowing the colours to easily adapt to a given design. Marble is also available in a number of finishes. The polished finish will result in a glossy, sleek surface that brings out the colours. This is the least porous of the finishes and therefore more resistant to natural staining of bacteria, but less resistant to acids and damage from chemical cleanser. Polish finish is a process of sanding the stone to a satiny-smooth feeling and appearance. This surface won’t show signs of wear and scratches as easily, but it is more porous and will require more care with cleaning. Having a leather finish is best for kitchens that have a more unfinished appearance, such light woods and ceramics.

“I found these guys on HomeStars and the reviews were spot on. The option to pick your own stone was great. The people that came out to do the measurements and complete the install were fantastic…to the point that they even assisted my father-in-law with a small stone ledge install during their clean up. I can’t recommend this company enough!”
