Marble comes in a variety of beautiful textures and colors, including beige, creamy white, black, and slate gray. Consider using a gray-toned marble countertop in a kitchen with white cabinets and a white subway-tile backsplash for a seamless and cohesive look throughout the kitchen.

Marble can be pricey, so you may want to consider a more budget-friendly option, like Carrara marble. Not only does this marble have the look of its pricier brother, but its various color and texture options allow for disguising unsightly chips and stains that are common to the soft nature of traditional marble.

It is important to clean natural stone countertops, like marble, with a mild liquid detergent and water. Be sure also to seal marble annually. If your kitchen is prone to heavy traffic and food preparation, then a high-maintenance marble countertop might not be the best option for your kitchen surface.

Marble countertops have, however, proven beneficial to bakers who prefer a cold surface for rolling out bread and cookie doughs.
