Marble Countertops add Value to a Home

Marble countertops in your bathroom can add value to your home. Home buyers are looking for more than functionality in their kitchens and bathrooms. Marble countertops are particularly sought after for a unique, luxurious look and feel for a master bathroom.

White marble comes from pure limestone and colored marble and those with veining are a result of other minerals that have seeped into the limestone.  It is typically found in lighter colors, but it can also be found in dark and even black with white veining! The surface can be highly polished or a honed finish.
For routine care of marble countertops, all you need is water, a mild detergent and a soft cloth. You can even find cleaners specifically formulated for stone countertops. If any spills should occur, it is important to wipe it up as soon as it happens. Marble is a soft stone and porous, so to avoid staining, annual sealing is recommended to keep the countertop looking its best.
