Marble is a popular choice for kitchen countertops due to its timeless beauty with its unique veining and patterns, which can add a luxurious and elegant look to any kitchen space. Marble is a natural stone that has high heat resistance.  It comes in a variety of colors and styles, offering customization options to match different design preferences.


Soapstone is a natural stone also known for its durability. Heat and acids won’t affect its surface, and its high density property makes it bacteria and stain resistant as well. However, some of its mineral composition does make it a bit softer, which will lead to edges and corners becoming eased over time.

Is marble as durable as other stones used for countertops?

While marble is softer than granite or quartz, it is still a durable and versatile material. It is resistant to scratching and chipping, which makes it suitable for everyday kitchen use. When properly sealed and maintained, marble countertops can last for a long time.

Does marble have cooling properties?

Marble tends to stay cool, making it ideal for rolling dough or working with pastry. Its natural coolness can help maintain the temperature of food items, especially those that require refrigeration.

Are marble kitchen countertops heat resistant?

Marble has moderately high heat resistance, approx. 350 F. It can withstand an occasional hot item or short-term exposure to high temperatures of hot pans, pots, or other kitchen utensils without getting damaged or discolored.

Are marble countertops easy to maintain?

Maintaining marble is as simple as wiping down the surface daily with gentle soap and water. Yet marble is a porous material and can be susceptible to staining if spills and messes are not promptly cleaned. Additionally, marble requires regular sealing to prevent etching or scratching.

"If we knew the process would be so painless, we would have replaced our counters years ago. Their price was more than fair, and the office manager Ashley is awesome. It was a pleasure working with the entire Stokes team, and we love our new counters!"

"We had a very small job - a small slab that we had Stokes fabricate into a bathroom counter. We were treated, at least in my opinion, like we were a customer having an entire kitchen done."
