When it comes to kitchen countertops, marble stands out for its timeless beauty and sophistication. One of our standout projects, completed in 2014, showcases this perfectly. This stunning kitchen features a Danby Montclair Marble island, complemented by a dark soapstone perimeter. Now, ten years later, these countertops still look as magnificent as the day they were installed, thanks to the diligent care of the homeowners.


The Project: A Decade Ago


Fast forward ten years, and the kitchen remains a testament to the durability and lasting beauty of marble countertops. The Danby Montclair Marble, with its classic veining and timeless appeal, continues to be a focal point of the kitchen. The dark soapstone perimeter has also stood the test of time, providing a stunning contrast that highlights the marble island.




The Importance of Proper Maintenance


Maintaining the pristine condition of marble countertops requires proper care. These homeowners have done an exceptional job by following some key maintenance practices:


Regular Cleaning: Marble should be cleaned regularly with a soft cloth and a pH-neutral cleaner to avoid damaging the surface.


Sealing: Marble is a porous stone, which means it can absorb liquids and stains. Sealing the marble annually helps protect it from spills and makes it easier to clean.


Mindful Use: Being mindful of potential damage sources like acidic foods, harsh cleaning agents, and heavy cookware can prevent etching and scratches on the marble surface.


Prompt Spill Cleanup: Cleaning up spills immediately prevents staining and helps maintain the marble’s pristine appearance.


Using Trivets and Cutting Boards: To avoid scratches and heat damage, always use trivets for hot pots and pans and cutting boards for chopping.




Despite requiring more maintenance than some other countertop materials, marble offers unique advantages:


  • Aesthetic Appeal: The natural veining and variations in marble create a unique and luxurious look that adds value to any kitchen.

  • Timeless Elegance: Marble has been used for centuries in architecture and design, and its classic beauty never goes out of style.

  • Cool Surface: Marble remains cool to the touch, making it ideal for baking and other culinary tasks.
