How to Care For Your Marble Countertops?
Whether you’re remodeling your kitchen or looking for a new countertop, marble is a beautiful option that can last a lifetime with some care. While marble is a little more expensive than other materials, the resulting countertops are highly durable and will not rust, chip or catch fire. However, it does need a little extra care to keep it looking its best. Here are some tips to keep your marble countertops beautiful.

To ensure that your marble is sealed, it’s important to follow the sealant’s instructions. Some sealants need to be reapplied periodically, while others only need to be renewed once a year or so.
A penetrating sealant will keep liquids from seeping into the surface. This prevents staining, but does not protect the marble from acidic liquids. Generally, sealants are applied to marble countertops once a year. If you don’t use a sealant, you’ll be left with an unsightly surface that will soak up any liquids.
There are many different types of marble. Some are etched, while others have subtle patterns. You can add a bit of depth to the appearance of your countertops by adding ghost veins. These veins are small and thin, but they fill in the spaces between the main veins.
To make a marble countertop look like natural marble, you’ll need a few things. For starters, you’ll need a good fabricator who can minimize waste. Also, you’ll need some painter’s tape to cover areas that aren’t suitable for painting.
