Living with marble countertops can be a bit of a love-hate relationship. You love the look, but it’s a bit higher maintenance than you signed up for. And, like any complicated relationship, you don’t always agree on everything. Your ideal date night may consist of spaghetti and wine, whereas your marble is looking for something a little less acidic– perhaps a sandwich. You need to learn to compromise. It may be time to accept ‘the patina of life’.
What you may not realize is you have more in common with your marble after all. You’re sensitive and soft, sometimes you’re flaws can be fixed and sometimes they cannot. And undoubtedly, you both age over time. But that doesn’t make either of you not beautiful, it means you tell a story.
