Marble is a classic stones that brings a touch of elegance to any room.

It has been used for hundreds of years to make timeless pieces. That’s why the Taj Mahal is entirely clad in marble.

It will give it a unique, gorgeous look while also being able to handle the daily wear and tear of your life. This makes marble a perfect stone for any kitchen. It’s heat resistant and will withstand heat from warm pots and pans, but for longevity's sake we still recommend using a cloth for extra hot dishes.

Marble prices start at $70 / ft.
