A marble countertop is more adaptable to your kitchen. If you have an irregularly shaped kitchen that will require custom cuts, marble can be easily worked to fit. Fancy edges can also be carved into the edges. Marble countertops are often chosen for their attractive bright white color. They remain cool to the touch, which can be a bonus beside stoves and ovens, decreasing the likelihood of being burned, or having countertop wear along the edges. Marble is durable but it’s still a soft stone, so take that into consideration.
