Are Marble Countertops Right For You?

So you’ve planned your kitchen layout, you know you want those gorgeous cabinets with the ultra-sleek handles – but now you have to choose a countertop and you’re stuck. How do you decide which countertop material will look most beautiful in your new kitchen and will work best with your lifestyle? In our easy 10-part guide, we’ll talk about the top countertop materials from the expert’s perspective, and help you decide which is right for you.

This week, we’re looking at sleek and gorgeous marble.

Price: $25-$125 a square foot, depending on quality, source and uniqueness

Pros: Marble’s gleaming surface looks luxurious, and its high thermal mass keeps it cooler than other surfaces (a boon to bakers).

Cons: Marble is soft and porous. You have to reseal it every six months or so and be willing to live with a patina that develops over time from scratches, stains, and etching from acids like lemon juice.

How To Clean It: Wipe up spills right away. Clean with a paper towel and a stone cleaner.
