I am in the process of remodeling my kitchen and was going to go with granite countertops until I saw a picture of a kitchen with white marble countertops. I have been advised by one of the big box stores that marble is a bad idea and that I should use a dolomitic stone. I have performed a little research and it seems that dolomite is a type of marble with a lot of the same characteristics. I do not mind the weathered and used look of marble countertops as I have seen quite a few in Europe. I understand that you have to "impregnate" the marble to seal and protect it, as with Dolomite as well. Does anyone have any positives or negatives towards marble countertops? I am very new to this and any advice will be greatly appreciated.
