When I design kitchens and bathrooms I almost always choose marble countertops. I sometimes get questioned as to why I pick marble,"isn't it hard to care for and maintain?" Marble can have a scary reputation that I don't agree with. The truth is, I love using marble and have never regretted putting in a kitchen. I have marble countertops in my own kitchen at home and have recently used it in two client's kitchens who have six children a piece. They both love it.
