Crema Marfil is one of the most well-known kind of marble because of it’s exquisite beauty beyond comparison to other natural stones. It is commonly chosen for its elegant combination of light beige, yellow and white, which can virtually complement any furniture you may want.
Some experts highly advise not to use Crema Marfil marble anywhere in the kitchen because of its calcareous nature, meaning it’s composition is chalky and soft – which means it can easily be affected by acids such as vinegar or citrus fruits.
If a homeowner is willing to use Crema Marfil marble on kitchen floors or kitchen countertops, it is highly advisable to apply a coat of high-quality sealer on the marble right after installation. However, sealing the marble cannot prevent etching, so extra care is definitely needed. Apply bar top dressing to lessen the chances of damage. Always use coasters, cutting boards, and trivets.
