The use of Brown Marble for Kitchen Countertops

In most, marble is not recommended as a material for kitchen countertops. But brown marble is less prone to color stains, stains are almost invisible on it, due to the color of the stone, in contrast to white and beige colors. Brown marble is suitable for kitchen and bathroom countertops, window sills and bar shelves, steps, fireplaces, and other stone products.

Classical Spanish marbles are the Imperador Gold and the Emperador Dark. All “Emperadors” vary in quality from Standard (medium) to De Luxe (selected). It is not possible to determine the quality of brown marble from a photo, in the Standard category there are many caverns and epoxy resin filling is almost always present. In the De Luxe category, this marble is much cleaner, has fewer calcite veins and the texture as a whole is more uniform.

The Pakistani Black and Gold marble should not be confused with the Italian Nero Portoro, the latter is more black than brown and significantly more expensive due to the difficulty of mining – they mine Nero Portoro from the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea. Black and Gold are more common, also different in quality, and are similar to the marble of Michelangelo or Port Laurent.

One of the most expensive Magic Brown (Eramosa Marble) – a very dense Canadian brown marble. All the beauty of this stone is manifested in the cutting of blocks “against veins”. The beauty of this stone is unique, it is imported mainly from Italy and China. Gray-brown marble is less in demand.

Light-Brown marble Emperador Light has many varieties and is very different from batch to batch. Because of this, Emperor Light is undesirable to choose from the samples. It is mainly brought from Turkey, but in Spain, there is brown marble which is very similar. The price of Spanish is higher than the cost of Turkish, but the stone itself is more beautiful, and the quality is better.

Indian Rainforest Brown marble whose texture is unique and very different in the quality of polishing. The middle name of this stone is Bidasar Brown. All Bidasars are difficult to polish on core machines in workshops. The only negative is fading from exposure to sunlight. In about five years, Bidasar Brown will fade in the sun, and the original brightness will go away. You can use this stone in the decoration of a wooden house, where fading will give the overall look a certain charm. Basically, this brown marble is sold with a polished finish and with an antique texture.

    Eugene blew us away with how fantastic our bathroom turned out. We recently moved into an apartment and were disappointed by how poorly the marble stone was kept. A friend recommended Eugene, he was very responsive and professional. You can tell he takes pride in his work. He spent two full days polishing, cleaning, caulking and grouting the entire bathroom and it looks like new. Before he left we asked for a proposal for the kitchen! I highly recommend him and would use him for every stone job we have moving forward.
    He is simply the best.

    The first, I was impressed with how fast they got back to me after asking for a quote. Eugene was professional, fast, and keep his promises. He communicates well and it was very easy to work with him, and I was very pleased. It is very important to me that people who I work with is professional and trustworthy. I can see a long-term relationship with them and am very happy to find them. By the way I found them by looking for an answer on Houzz for my question about my furniture.

    Eugene did right by us! Lowest estimate of several I received, but no corners cut. Very patient answering all my questions by email, super professional and respectful in my apartment, including thorough cleanup, and my counters look great!

    Eugene was great. My contractor ruined our "travertine" floors. Our contractor used the wrong grout and my pale colored stone floors looked dirty. Eugene to the rescue! Eugene scrubbed, polished and regrouted the bathroom stone floor and it looks just the way it was meant to. Eugene told us that the stone was really limestone. He was quiet and went straight to work. I found him to be very respectful. He saw we had new flooring in the house and took off his shoes. Class act. We highly recommend Eugene. Now my family can finally move into our first home.

    Eugene absolutely saved the day for us, and we are so grateful. With only 3 days left to move out of our BK apt, our movers cracked a priceless family heirloom marble dresser top. We were devastated! A friend of mine who does object restoration for museums gave me ABC's website, and Eugene spent a day communicating with me, and came, to our home (in a mask) the very next day and restored our marble on location and in our tight time frame. When he was finished, it was stunning, and we are beyond grateful to him. I hope I never need his services again, but I strongly recommend him to others. At the end, he even helped us correctly package the marble for our move so we didn't need to have the movers risk harming the marble again. We are so grateful to him!
