Choosing Marble for your Worktop
Marble is a natural stone product which can be used for kitchen worktops. Some marbles have very definite veining through the stone slabs which would normally be incorporated as a feature in the kitchen. Pictured is a recently installed Kube kitchen doing just that. The stunning marble backsplash displays this stone’s very distinctive veining pattern in a vertical position behind the hob. This is not easily achieved and takes a lot of planning and choosing of marble slabs before manufacturing can begin. The end effect is definitely worth the effort. Be warned however. Although marble is a very beautiful material it is also a porous material and can stain easily. It may not be suitable in a very busy household.
