Although a beautiful and luxurious material, marble is well known for its sensitivity. The surface is highly prone to scratches, stains and cracks while also requiring ongoing maintenance and sealing to ensure its longevity.
Being a highly porous stone, marble can be stained from liquids and acids which can in time dull the surface. With careful use and regular maintenance however, you are able to keep your marble tops looking as new!

Forever feared in the kitchen due to its porous nature and constant maintenance, marble is now making a long overdue comeback in the world of kitchen design in the form of composite stone. As an engineered stone made to simulate the look of marble, composite stones require no sealing, are easy to keep clean and do not stain as readily as natural marble would.
