Marble is a stone which is found naturally and is quite elegant and gorgeous as well. This is probably why they are considered wonderful for being used as countertops. They are long-lasting and resilient and you have multiple color options to choose from which will give your countertop a unique look. But just like any of the other natural stone countertops, marble is quite expensive. This is why it is usually used for specific areas and not the entire house. Marble countertops are heat resistant and waterproof as well but this doesn’t mean that they don’t require regular maintenance.
