Cost and Benefits of Carrara Marble Worktops!


Consider using the Carrara Marble material for your kitchen countertop is for sure a challenging thing. This stunning natural stone product, based in Carrara region, Italy, has many benefits and advantages of being used in decorating the interior of a house, but unexpectedly, its strength is also its weakness.

Having a gorgeous look comes with a lot of problems. The nonfoliated marble rock is composed from metamorphic calcium carbonate and magnesium carbonate and as a result, the products manufactured from this stone are very reactive to acids. Even though the kitchen is the place where you expect the highest use of acidic liquids, such as vinegar or lemon, the intensive use of Carrara Marble worktops lays on the extremely beautiful natural designs and patterns on them.

Regarding the lack of resistance to liquid spills like red win, spices and turmeric, many house owners choose to decorate their interior with these worktops because of their beauty, acceptable prices, and ability to merge easily in almost every cabinet design.

Although the price for a piece of this natural stone is not so high, maintenance time is required to be allocated weekly, because having a porous surface comes with the fact that it allows liquid spills to penetrate into its texture and harmful bacteria and germ may harbor inside of it.

This Italian white marble stone is used widely across the whole world mainly due to its consistent light color and dark grey veining. Being affordable for every budget marks the wide variety of quality forms that the Carrara marble worktops may have. Use of cutting boards is a must because marble is not scratch-proof and even if heat isn’t a problem, I recommend always using heat shields in order to protect the exterior surface of the countertop.

Final Thoughts and Suggestions For Carrara Marble Worktops

Despite coming from Italy, Carrara marble is one of the cheapest stone used in manufacturing a countertop due to its grey shades coloring and its porous nature, aspects considered not so classy and elegant into our age, and adding to these, a high maintenance time is required to be allocated in order to keep a clean house and a germs-free environment.
