Best Marble Benchtops in Christchurch

Acrylic Vertical Benchtops

Marble is a metamorphic limestone rock which has been used throughout the ages for both practical and decorative purposes. Mostly pale in colour, marble is recognised by the streaks or ‘marbling’ within the stone.

Maintaining a marble surface

Marble is a porous material and relatively soft. This means that it will stain and mark, unless cared for properly. Although very beautiful, it is essential to seal marble regularly to avoid damaging the stone. As well as stains within the stone, marble can be affected by extreme temperatures. A marble countertop could be easily damaged by hot pots resting on the surface.

Where to use marble?

Many people love the beauty and elegance of a marble surface but due to its higher maintenance needs we recommend thinking carefully about where you  wish to use this material. Occasional tables, consoles, feature walls, vanities  and marble staircases are popular places for using marble. A marble reception desk in Perth businesses makes a stylish statement.
