Everyone in Fort Lauderdale has their own individual taste when it comes to the look of their kitchens and bathrooms. What’s popular in most homes may not necessarily be to your liking. If you’re looking to add a feel of luxury and elegance, a simple change to marble countertops can do wonders. While the popular the popular trend is to add granite to kitchens and bathrooms, marble is quietly making a comeback. Marble is a metamorphic rock which typically originated as limestone and changed as a result of intense heat and pressure. Before granite became the rage for countertops, marble was the original standard of beauty and durability. Its history of being used for decorative purposes can be traced all the way back to the Roman Empire. Decorating trends come and go, but marble’s staying power is unmatched. It continues to be one of the most sought-after materials for home improvement projects. One of the great benefits of marble is its endless variety of colors and patterns. Many people choose marble simply because it isn’t trendy. Its unique veiny appearance brings a richness and decadent ambiance to any room. This classic material has been used for everything from structures to artwork. If it was good enough for Michelangelo to sculpt the statue of David, it can certainly add character to your home. Like granite, marble is also very durable and heat resistant. You never have to worry about it going out of style. If you decide to add marble countertops to your kitchen or bathroom, there are some maintenance tips you need to keep in mind. The surface can stain easily. If you spill anything, it’s important to clean it up immediately. Use coasters if you decide to place glasses, cups or cans on the surface. Because it’s sensitive to acidic substances, spilling juices, wines or coffee dull the polish of your countertop. Marble is also easy to scratch. Never try cutting food on its surface. You may want to invest in a cutting board. The best way to clean a marble countertop is by applying warm water to a soft damp cloth with mild soap. Don’t use any household cleaning products which contain harsh chemicals. There are cleaning products specifically made for marble which can remove difficult stains. It’s also important to reseal your marble countertops once a year to prevent the absorption of liquids. Although marble does require more maintenance than granite or quartz, its classic beauty is unmatched. If you’re looking to change the atmosphere of your kitchen to a more elegant look, adding marble countertops is an excellent choice.
