Why marble is one of the best options for you
There are so many stones the kitchen countertops can be made with: marble, quartz, granite, quartzite, the options are infinite! But if you don’t know which stone your project may need, think of a style that will be cozy, comforting, and inviting to your family and friends, and no matter what’s your style, classic, modern, sophisticated, fun, or casual, adding marble to your kitchen decor (mainly in Outdoor Kitchens) will meet all the conveniences of your daily life.
Also, the cleaning process of Marble Countertops is very simple, all you need is a damp cloth and neutral detergent. In cases of heavier cleaning, there are products that do not harm the piece.
But the main benefit of marble is surely its functionality. When preparing recipes, marble is an important domestic utensil. When handling melted chocolates or opening the dough, a counter with this material is the best option!
4 aspects you should pay attention to while planning your outdoors’ kitchen countertop
- It’s ALL ABOUT Details!
Don’t forget we are talking about your dream project and it has to take all the details you are dreaming of into consideration: aesthetics, usability, time spent to finish the service, and, most importantly, your budget.
The kitchen will be the most frequented place in your house, that’s why it is so important to pay attention to the details of your project, like choosing the perfect slab, edge countertops, cabinets, etc… The functionality and durability are essential, but if it’s not like you want your kitchen to look, what’s the point?
Also, every service you make in your home must be accompanied by a responsible work team or professional.
- Do not choose the natural stone you are using outdoors without a professional opinion
Always start your outdoor project with the orientation of a professional. Only professionals can show you the best stone for each project just because they know how to make it safer for your family or business. For example, if you choose marble or granite for your outdoor project, make sure you are choosing the best non-slip stone; granite is a harder and less porous stone than marble, so it is considered a more durable material. For that reason, it is often used to make kitchen countertops because it is resistant to stains and scratches often caused by spills and the use of sharp knives. Another factor to consider is the heat resistance of the stone: marble is more porous and therefore less resistant to contact with hot materials, such as a pan. Consequently, it is mainly used in bathrooms, where it is less susceptible to this type of damage.
- If it is possible, always ask for an estimate with the company of your choice
An estimate is much more than a simple listing of project costs. They are documents that give the approximate cost of a project and list each component needed to complete it. An estimate will certainly help you understand exactly what you are paying for, and will also guarantee you have a project schedule to work with so you know exactly what needs to be done and when. Without an estimate, you may not be clear on what steps are required. That’s why we recommend an expert who can help you with each step of the project, and who knows how long it will really take you to plan.
