Marble has long been associated with posh lifestyles. It is an elegant and timeless stone that compliments most things. It is no wonder that many businesses and homeowners are eager to find ways to incorporate it into their buildings. Marble is a soft stone, however, that is prone to etching. So, it is not ideal for use just anywhere. That is why your friends at Stone Restoration Works would like to share our suggestions for the best places to bring a little marble into your home.
A backsplash is an ideal area for marble. For starters, it is terribly easy to clean. Which is arguably one of the most desirable qualities among backsplash choices. On top of that, having marble as your backsplash will keep it safer from the dulling and damaging elements that can be hanging around your kitchen.
Instead of incorporating marble here and there, you can create a focused marble piece. For instance, if you have a room that you feel needs just a little extra something, you may want to consider adding a marble statement wall. A marble wall can bring life into a once stale-feeling room. It can add a sense of openness, elegance, and that “wow” factor.
Perhaps one of the first applications for marble that may come to mind is for kitchen countertops. Because marble has such a beautifully unique veining, it can easily bring visual interest to a kitchen space. On top of that, the naturally cold character of marble makes it an excellent medium on which to knead or roll out doughs directly on the surface. If you are a baker, marble countertops are a no-brainer.
Regardless of where you decide to place it in your house, marble will surely add the level of sophistication you are looking for. Marble is a natural stone, however, and natural things do degrade over time. Not to worry, though!
