Although a uniquely beautiful choice, marble is a relatively soft and porous stone that has drawbacks when used in kitchens. A better choice might be granite, an engineered stone, or solid-surface material that resembles marble.
Each material has its advantages and disadvantages, all of which need to be weighed when choosing. The more esoteric materials, such as bamboo, zinc, and stainless steel. may prove to be too expensive and hard to maintain for most people. For most homeowners, the more practical options will include materials such as slab granite, engineered stone (quartz), solid surface material, as well as traditional laminates and ceramic tile.
The material is held together with resins and shaped into slabs for use in countertops. The material can also be molded into one-piece units with sinks integrated into the countertop. Solid surface countertops are very versatile and give a reasonable and much more affordable alternative to granite and engineered quartz. They're not difficult to clean either.
