White Marble Kitchen Counters
White marble kitchen counters?
I have this conversation all the time clients. Most people are under the impression that they can not use marble in a kitchen, much less white marble. They are sold on the idea that only "oh so 90's granite" will work. And I say, they are wrong.
White marble has been used in kitchen forever. All old French and English kitchens used fabulous white slabs in their cooking areas because it makes the food stand out and it is a sign on cleanliness. But the issue is maintenance. And yes, there is a bit of maintenance. All you need to do is apply a coat of "Dry Treat" sealer every 6 or 8 months and let it dry over night. As simple as that. It takes 5 minutes to do and voila! Of course if you are sloppy and your kids spill food and you don't clean it up marble will absorb colors and stain. But for most people that is not an issue and white marble is a great option for a modern or traditional kitchen.
Don't be afraid of white marble!
