Choosing the right kitchen countertop material involves a great deal of simple personal preference—deciding what type of ”look” appeals to you. But there are also objective criteria you can use to choose a countertop material that’s likely to work best for your needs. Even here, some criteria will be more important than others, based on your lifestyle and needs. For example, in a home where the kitchen serves mostly as a social area where people gather, appearance may be of utmost importance, while in a kitchen for a passionate cook, stain- and heat-resistance may be much more important.
Another natural stone option that is in high demand for countertops is marble, although it has limitations that should be recognized in kitchen applications. Marble’s unique appearance and veined patterns make it one of the most attractive of all natural stones. But marble is a relatively soft and porous stone that MUST be carefully and repeatedly sealed if used for kitchen countertops. Like granite, marble is available in three forms—solid slabs, modular marble, and marble tiles. As with granite, solid slabs are the best choice for countertops. Although a uniquely beautiful choice, marble is a relatively soft and porous stone that has drawbacks when used in kitchens. A better choice might be granite, an engineered stone, or solid-surface material that resembles marble.
