Pros and Cons of Marble in a Kitchen
By Stay at Home-ista on Nov 19, 2012
Given the huge expanse of marble in our kitchen, I get asked this question all the time.
We chose Calcutta Oro marble, a block with less gold and brown, and more white with grey veining. This is in our kitchen, and all the bathrooms. So here is my answer to :
How do you like having marble as your kitchen counters?
I wouldn't do anything differently although we've only been here 18 months. That said, I cook 3 meals a day in the kitchen, mostly with kids "helping" and we've spilled all over these suckers and they look amazing. A few caveats- no major red wine spills, just a few drops here and there, we dont' have citrus juice, other than grapefruit, so not huge spills from oj, but I've certainly covered them with tomato sauce (on accident), dropped an entire jar of peaches on them, etc and they look good. My mom has Carrera marble and after 20+ years it looks great.
