  1. Limestone worktops available in a wide variety of colours

Limestone can be installed in many different colours and styles. This means that it will be easier for you to find a style that will perfectly complement your home, whether you want a bold piece to make a statement or you are looking for a worktop with a more subtle shade to contrast other colours.

  1. Limestone is a good alternative for Marble

Depending on what type of Limestone you choose and how it is harvested, Limestone can resemble Marble’s patterns and colours, as the two are closely related. Furthermore, some Limestone products, depending on your specifications, can have a lower cost than Marble, which can make it a good alternative for those with a smaller budget but looking for a similar finish.

  1. Tried and tested material

Limestone is a popular material in the home and has also been a crucial component of many famous architectural works, such as the Parthenon, Great Pyramids and the Lincoln Memorial. When cared for properly, Limestone is an excellent material for your kitchen worktop, find out how to care for Limestone.

Things to consider when buying a Limestone Worktop

Limestone, as discussed above, is a great surface to use in your home but you should remember the following so that you can get the most out of your Limestone worktop:

  1. Limestone kitchen surfaces need re-sealing

You will need to re-seal your limestone worktop every few months, as the surfaces are porous and can be susceptible to staining. Regularly sealing your limestone worktop should counteract this and if you clear up any spills or messes straight away, this will limit the risk of staining issues.

  1. Use potholders and chopping boards

As a fairly soft stone, you will need to avoid damaging it. You can reduce the risk of damaging your Limestone worktop by using chopping boards during food preparation and using pan rests for any hot cooking implements.

  1. Avoid acidic cleaners

Acidic cleaners can damage a Limestone Worktop so try to find other options that will not damage your worktop. If you need advice on suitable cleaners for your limestone worktop, you can discuss this with our team during your consultation or check out our article, Tips for Caring for Limestone.
