Benefits of Marble Kitchen Benches

There is a certain sophistication that marble brings to a room. Its colour, texture and natural design are elegant and unique. Since it comes from the earth, there is no marble benchtop in Sydney that looks identical. As a homeowner or building manager, the benefits of using marble for your benchtops should interest you.

  • It is not that unobtainable. Marble is affordable, especially when compared to granite. You will find that the cost varies depending on the thickness or size of the slab you acquire.
  • When you decide to renovate your kitchen and include marble countertops, you do it with the idea that you won’t have to replace it in the near future. Marble is incredibly durable and resistant to scratches. It does require its due maintenance, but you won’t find a marble counter breaking or cracking too easily.
  • Head chefs around the world tend to favour marble countertops because it remains cool and is the ideal surface for rolling pastry. Additionally, this material is heat resistant and won’t catch fire. Even though you could, you shouldn’t place hot pots and pans directly on the surface as it would compromise the marble over time.

Tips for Getting More Value Out of a Marble Stone Benchtop

Marble is a unique material, and if used as a countertop, there are measures you can take to increase its longevity.

  • The surface must be cleaned and maintained. You should use lukewarm water, a non-abrasive cleaner and a soft cloth to wipe down the marble and wipe it dry thereafter. It is best to read sealant to the marble every 12 to 18 months or according to your installer’s instructions.
  • When you have a difficult stain to deal with from a spill, you must treat the surface as you would a carpet. Use an absorbent material such as tissue paper dipped in a mixture of water and bleach and place it over the spill. Leave it in place for a few hours, and then the stain should wipe away easily.
  • Marble is naturally porous, and as a result, it allows dirt and stains to seep in easier than other types of stone. Placing items with acid content such as tomatoes and fruit juices on the surface causes the marble to react. Always use a chopping board to avoid such reactions and maintain the condition of your marble countertops.
