q: do you like your white marble countertops? do they stain or leave marks?
a: i LOVE our countertops. the builder and countertop store guys advised against it. 🙂 glad i went with what i wanted 🙂 i am very honest though….you WILL get spotting. i wipe my counters daily with a washcloth. and dry them. but we live here! and its marble! so spotting will happen. we knew this though and it does not bother me. when guests come to visit you can not notice it UNLESS they specifically start to ask about the countertops and we angle our heads just right to see them. its a water spot on white so it blends in. if this bothers you then don’t go with marble 🙂 if not….go for it!
