These three types of stone are all popular choices for countertops.
Marble countertops have a timeless appeal and can give a home a sleek, sophisticated look. It has also been the stone of choice by sculptors since classical times. Regular sealing can help keep marble countertops looking their best.
Another great choice for natural stone countertops is limestone. It frequently comes in white and sandy shades and goes particularly well with stainless steel appliances. Limestone stands- to wear and tear and is heat resistant. Made of shells and fossils, and shaped by sand over many years, limestone can bring a very unique look to home.
Travertine is also a popular choice for stone countertops. It can bring a warm inviting look to a kitchen and is very pleasing to the eye. The vast majority of travertine comes from Italian quarries. Travertine was used in the construction of the Roman Coliseum and Sacre-Coeur Basilica in Paris.
