Pricier Than Other Materials

Marble is known for its price. It is a luxury material after all, and it is known for its higher price. That is not to say that this should deter you from choosing it. If you have a higher budget to spend, it is very much worth every penny, and you will not be disappointed, as its beauty and feel will lead to you forget the cost as soon as it is fitted in your kitchen.

It Is A Metamorphic Rock

Metamorphic rocks are formed from the transformation of existing rock types. Metamorphism actually means ‘change in form’, and happens when the original rock becomes subjected to extremely high levels of heat and pressure, which cause physical and chemical changes as a result.

Marble is a perfect example of a metamorphic rock, as it is formed from limestone that has been put under that extreme heat and pressure.

It Is Truly Beautiful

Marble is well known for its attractiveness. It is one of the most beautiful materials there is, and has long been used in historical buildings as a sign of wealth and beauty. The Taj Mahal in India for example, is made entirely from marble and as a building it is well known for its stunning beauty.

No matter what type of kitchen you have, as soon as you introduce marble, it will give your kitchen a more spacious look. No two pieces are ever the same, and this simply adds to the sheer beauty of the stone.
