There is no denying the timeless look of marble, especially on a kitchen bench top. Which is why it has long been a favourite of homeowners when they decide to renovate their kitchen. Available in different colours and textures, a marble bench top not only adds to the aesthetic appeal of a kitchen but will add significant value to your home in the long term.
What is Marble?
Many people look on in awe at the different colours and textures of marble bench tops, but not too many know how marble is made. Marble is formed when limestone is exposed to both high temperatures and pressures underground. When it forms, if the limestone is free or near free from impurities such as clay, it will come out white. Limestone with these impurities will cause the marble to form varying colours from, blue and black, pink or yellow.
Although it is a product of limestone, it is more durable than other materials, including granite. Which makes it a popular choice for homeowners looking to update their kitchen benchtop in Melbourne.
Why Choose Marble?
Marble has long been associated with luxury and for good reason. The colour patterns and textures made the material a favourite for both Greek and Roman sculptors during the classical sculpture era. Nowadays, marble is often seen as a cultural symbol of refined taste, particularly in luxury homes.
The appeal of marble, aside from the colour is the fact it doesn’t scratch or cracks as easily as other materials. Due to the formation process, marble can withstand high temperatures, and as the kitchen is a heavily utilised room, the temperature can rise. Thus, ensuring your new bench top will last for many years to come.
