Marble & Limestone Kitchen Worktops

Direct from the UK’s leading specialists, Worktops.net

Worktops.net uses marble of the highest quality which comes in a variety of colours, polishing it to a high gleam.

Marble is resistant to heat, scratches and impact, but because it is softer than granite, it requires special attention. A marble worktop can generally be wiped clean with a clean damp cloth and buffed dry where necessary with a microfiber cloth. If a deeper clean is required to remove grease or oil deposits, a mild, well diluted detergent or a stone specific cleaner can be used. Under no circumstances should acidic or abrasive products be used to clean a marble worktop, as this can damage the surface of the stone. It’s advised that any spillages of an acidic nature, e.g. wine, vinegar, fruit juices, etc. should be cleaned up as soon as possible and neutralised by applying plenty of clean water and wiped up, rinsed and then buffed dry.

Historic and Unique Beauty

Marble has been valued throughout history for its unique beauty, relative homogeneity and appearance that does not change with the direction in which it lies, known as “isotropy.” Marble allows light to actually penetrate its surface, sometimes by several millimetres before scattering, giving marble a unique “waxy” appearance. Marble & Limestone have been used in sculpturing, construction, flooring, wall cladding and work surfaces for many centuries and it remains as desirable, relevant and fashionable today.

Limestone is heat resistant and resistant to most scratches and stains once it has been sealed. Most general, day-to-day care can be achieved with a damp cloth. In the hands of our skilled craftsmen these qualities bring your kitchen to life and set it apart from anything else you can purchase.
