Restore Marble Countertop Singapore
An investment on a good countertop adds value on a few aspects. Not only that the value of your property increases, you tend to want to spend more time in the kitchen making meals which directly leads to healthier lifestyle too. It also increases your confidence when you invite someone over too because you would no longer want to restrict them to only be in your living and find excuses to stop them at their foot when they offer to serve tea or with the food preparation.
Choose The Right One
There are several countertops which you can consider based on your needs. If you are going for the more rustic look, butcher blocks would be the ultimate choice because of the cabin vibes which it will give out. If you are not a fan of wood and is more to the industrial look, you can consider countertops made of aluminium, your kitchen is going to look so sleek and professional that you would feel like chef cooking in a five star restaurant. If wood and aluminium still do not satisfy you, you can further look into other options such as tile and lamination which the designs are endless. Or you can opt for the classic countertop which will would surely wow your guests, marble or granite. They are not as budget friendly as the rest of the material, but they are definitely something worth investing because they are here to stay for a very long time.
Not Just A Decorative Vase
Marble has gained its reputation of being the prettiest among stones since centuries ago. The Greek even used to call it “Marmaros” which carries the meaning of being shinny and beautiful. There is no doubt on the beauty of marble, but do you know its properties has made it one of the most widely used materials and building out there? There are so many ancient monument still standing today which uses marble in their construction. Under the Mohs hardness scale, marble has a band 3 which makes it a rather soft stone, perfect for sculpting. Even though it is a soft stone, it is durable and is placed second after granite in the ranking of stones.
Scars Are Beautiful But Not On Marble
Marble is perfect as a countertop for people who loves to bake because it is naturally cool so it does not conduct heat very well. Its smooth surface also make dough kneading easy so you can finally feel like Anna Olsen when baking those pastries. There are however certain things which you should take note of when choosing marble as a countertop. Even with the level of protective sealant to make it water resistant, marble surfaces are still exposed to the risk of etching. The layer of sealant is only meant for more protection, not to make it invincible against all scratches and stains. Marble with its origin of limestone is porous and sensitive to acid. Thus, any stains unattended would cause etching on the marble surfaces. So no waiting for later to wipe of that rendang or kimchi off the countertop or dishsoaps when washing the dishes. Every second counts. Having a marble countertop polished to mirror like is mesmerizing and also opens up space especially when the sun shines through, but that also means that it is prone to scratches. So, even though it is tempting to straight use the marble countertop as a cutting board, please use a proper one to protect the marble from scratching.
When Nothing Works, Restore
Minor scratches and stains can be removed through polishing, but if you are encountering damages worse than that like how your pot of soup slipped off your hand and fall onto the countertop and leave a deep scratch and a crack, you would need to go for restoration because no amount of polishing is going to help with that. You need to go deeper. In fact, polishing should also be done once every 6 months to ensure protection because the marble surface without one is more vulnerable to damages. With restoration, the damaged marble stone will be grinded away to once again reveal the shiny surface.
