One of the most used stones in homes throughout time has been marble. Spartanburg homes are no different. If you would like to add the beauty and elegance of marble to your home here are some things to keep in mind.
Like granite, you are getting a natural stone when you choose Marble. Spartanburg homeowners use it for floors, countertops, walls and mantles. This stone is particularly prized for mantles because it is softer than some other stones and lends itself better to carving.
If you are looking for countertops for an entire kitchen, your best choice might not be marble. Spartanburg kitchens, like all kitchens, experience lots of use. This stone is subject to stains and can be more easily chipped or cracked than granite. It is also easier to scratch. However it is prized by bakers as a surface for rolling dough and pastry so many cooks choose to install a marble work area for this purpose.
While kitchen countertops are not the optimum use, bathrooms are an excellent place to use marble. Spartanburg baths can take on an elegant appearance with marble countertops, shower surrounds, tub decks and walls. It is also beautiful as a bathroom flooring material.
Cleaning marble is easy, especially if it is properly sealed when installed and resealed on a regular basis. Diluted soap and water can be used as well as commercially available cleaners. Stains can often be removed if the stone was properly sealed.
Adding marble to your home is a choice that will last for generations.
