The Benefits of Marble Countertops
1) Easy to Cut and Shape
Marble can be worked to create a wide variety of dimension and tile options with finishing options to make your new countertops unique. Popular marble countertop lip styles include stair thread, bullnose, waterfall edges, special bevels, and more. Choosing fancier edges for countertops made of marble adds slightly to the cost, though it’s cheaper than granite on average.
Speaking of granite, marble is a softer natural stone that’s resistant to chipping while still being hard enough to endure everyday use and then some. In fact, this top-rated countertop material has been used to construct famous landmarks throughout history such as the Taj Mahal, the Lincoln Memorial, and the Parthenon.
