    "Hello, some people want marble. But I don't recommend it as the marble will stain very easy.

    The best stone for marble is granite or Quartz"

    "Hi there,

    Yes, marble is suitable for kitchens, but you must be careful when working with acidic foods and liquids as these may etch the surface of the area that gets in contact with the acids.
    We recommend using a trivet or chopping board to slice and cut lemon, orange, etc.
    Hope it helps!"

    "Yes marble would be ok for a work top or splash back but heavy and costly to purchase and fit"
