  • Marble worktops are simply beautiful and that’s why they are popular not just in London but all over the world. The classic beauty of a marble worktop is unparalleled. Varieties such as Carrara marble make for a lovely worktop and are the pride of any London home.
  • Another plus is that marble is naturally cool and great if one has baking on their mind. Also, it is heat resistant and durable.

Now the disadvantages:

  • A marble worktop can be prone is scratches and stains. It is a softer stone and etching could be an issue.
  • It requires maintenance but this is hardly a surprise. All good things come at a cost and in the case of marble regular sealing is required in order to maintain quality.
  • Repair could be hard, depending on the type of damage (for example a crack) in case of a slab and this is something any dealer in London selling marble worktops will confirm.
