Marble countertops are an excellent addition to any kitchen to improve style and functionality. While this stone has been utilized for thousands of years in civilizations all over the world, it has only been in recent decades that the average consumer could save on marble countertops to a degree which made them affordable in any home.
 

The Evolution of Marble in the Home

 
Known for its natural beauty and durable nature, marble has long been used in the construction of buildings, baths, statues and churches almost since the beginning of recorded history. Back in ancient times however, marble was pulled from the earth in giant slabs without the use of technology and hoisted along in primitive wagons, making it a difficult material to work with. As tools and knowledge were lacking in this time period it was very difficult to shape marble, making it far more suitable for larger structures as opposed to individual homes. Fortunately, modern times have changed the ways in which we can incorporate marble into  our homes, with countertops being the most common use today.
 
All during the last century, marble has become an increasingly common sight in larger buildings, from columns to flooring to walls and beyond. This intricate stone instantly creates a sense of luxury and wealth which it carries with it regardless of what room or home it may be installed in. As a result of its growing popularity, which began to skyrocket in the 1980's, marble was suddenly springing up in areas it previously had not been seen. With this global interest in the stone and new technologies being developed in the late 1980's to mid-1990's, marble was able to be shaped into smaller pieces while still retaining its durability and the costs were reduced significantly, making it an affordable option for any family.
 

Save on Marble Countertops by Planning Ahead

 
One of the best ways to save on marble countertops is to plan ahead for your project. This generally includes having a solid idea of what you need, how much you are willing to spend, and the quality of the stone. Some marble distributors promise rock-bottom prices, but accordingly deliver rock-bottom results. As the old saying goes, "you get what you pay for.” Like with most products, marble comes on sale from time to time, and allowing yourself a few months leniency before the project is set to begin will give you the time you need for comparison shopping and maybe a little bargaining between yourself and the vendor. Since marble can easily be tinted in nearly any shade to match your décor or personal tastes, accepting some stone with slight imperfections can help significantly reduce costs, allowing you to save on marble countertops without compromising the elegance and class you hoped to showcase to family and friends.
 
With marble, like with people, no two pieces are the same and the outcome may be slightly different than you originally planned. Be prepared for variations from the product you've imagined and enjoy the one-of-a-kind artwork naturally etched into your kitchen counters for many years to come.
