Making the right decision about the type of marble you want in your home can be difficult. Marble countertops are one of the most beautiful and elegant types of natural stone you can choose for your kitchen and provides a luxurious feel. When you come to Arch City Granite to see our collection of natural stone, you might feel overwhelmed by the number of choices. We are here to help you find the perfect slab of marble for your kitchen, bathroom or other project. Here are our insider tips on how to find the perfect marble slab for you and your home.
Having the right perspective while looking through the marble slab selection can save valuable time and reduce your level of stress. Marble comes in many distinct colors and the patterns can vary greatly. Narrowing down your search beforehand can help you to envision your marble countertops more clearly. You can still have an open mind, but if your selection is focused, you will find what you are looking for with ease. Having the right perspective will keep you from wandering aimlessly. You might also want to know how much color variation you are comfortable with. This will aid in the decision-making process as you look at marble slabs that are the same color, but have subtle differences. Think of it as a piece of art that is also a functional piece of your kitchen. The slab you select should reflect your style.
Accidents can happen. If mishandled, marble can be cracked during the shipping process. If you have an eye on a perfect marble slab, feel free to really look at the slab. Natural fissures are fine, but cracks are bad. The best way to tell the difference is to run your fingernail across the surface. If your nail doesn’t catch, you are looking at a fissure. If your nail snags, then the slab is cracked, and you should move on to a different slab of marble. A fissure in the marble does not mean the integrity of the marble is compromised, it is part of that stone’s character and does not lessen the value or look of the marble at all. It is recommended to fully examine each piece of marble. It is our goal for you to love the piece we install; your satisfaction and positive reviews mean the world to us.
