9 Advantages of Using Crema Marfil Marble In Your Home & Office
- Durable: Despite marble’s softness, an excellent attribute for seamless fabrication and cutting, the stone is robust.

Similarly, marble demonstrates the variety of purposes you can give it.

After rinsing with water, a marble worktop is hygienic over the critical point. And if you sanitize it using a very mild solution of white vinegar, you will eliminate 100% of germs.
- Practical: marble’s softness makes it one of the most functional natural stones for building and decoration. While the Romans made the most of its softness for sculpturing, you can make the most of it by shaping it to any form and size. Whether for worktops, walls, floors, shelves, or more.
- Colour Intense: Although marble is often light coloured, you can find marble in any colour and shade in the spectrum. And no other material can provide the same level of colour intensity marble provides, whether quartz, ceramic, or concrete.

Use & Care of Crema Marfil Marble in Kitchens & Bathrooms
Caring for Crema Marfil marble kitchen countertops doesn’t take your time, thanks to the marble’s low porosity. First, our teams seal the marble slabs upon delivery before processing them for fabrication. Then, after cutting the worktops, our installation teams seal your marble worktops again, ensuring there are no unprotected areas.
Cleaning: Clean the countertop with a gentle dish detergent or a PH-neutral cleaner to keep it looking new. You’ll enjoy the best when cleaning with warm water and a damp towel while softly caressing the work surface’s top layer. After cleaning, rinse and dry the worktop to remove any residues.
Below are five simple recommendations to help you keep your Crema Marfil marble worktops in excellent condition over time:
- If any liquids spill on the worktop, clean them up immediately.
- Avoid putting scorching items straight on the countertop. Instead, we recommend using a trivet to avoid scratching the stone.
- Avoid using abrasive cleaners such as metal scouring pads. Instead, carefully stroke the surface with a kitchen sponge.
- Don’t use alkaline cleaners and very acidic chemicals to minimize damage to the marble’s surface.
Two Drawbacks of Crema Marfil honed marble as a Kitchen Worktop.
Although marble’s eternal looks stand the test of time, there are two main cons of using the material as a kitchen worktop that we highlight below. Nevertheless, and despite these two instances, marble is perfectly suitable for kitchens when its users care minimally for it. As a result, marble has remained a favourite worktop material amongst architects, interior designers and building specialists for centuries.
- Practicality: Whilst marble is practical for shaping and installation, other materials such as quartz, porcelain and granite offer more practical maintenance.
- Etching: Marble contains calcium carbonate, the substance in our teeth that the dentist says may get ruined when consuming too much lemon. It makes it susceptible to acidic substances such as lemon and oranges. Therefore, marble can react to acids by presenting it as a ‘stain’ you cannot remove, known as ‘etching’. The good news is that you can remove marble’s top layer by repolishing its fascia.

Crema Marfil marble is a sedimentary carbonate rock. It comprises calcite (CaCO3), a mixture of dolomite (Ca, Mg) and calcite. It is, in fact, a limestone, but most people think it is marble because of its surface's high level of sheen.
The limestone rocks become marble thanks to the natural processes affecting them over millennia. Moreover, the term 'marble' comes from the old Greek word "Marmaris," meaning "shiny stone", describing the metamorphosis from limestone to marble.
The endurance of a Crema Marfil marble worktop is one of its best characteristics.
Crema Marfil is a natural marble worktop lasting over 100 years after installation.
Avoid boiling pots on the countertop without a coaster to keep your Crema Marfil kitchen worktops in good condition. Despite their resistance to high heat, it is best to keep minimum care to ensure a longer lifespan.
