The Benefits of Cultured Marble

1. Appearance 

The sought-after patterns and veining found in natural stone can be recreated during the casting process. Additionally, since cultured marble is hand-made, you can also pre-select the colors that you want to have in your design. From our Black Spice to Bermuda Coral, you may have a hard time choosing your favorite.   

2. Stain and Chip Resistant 

The same nonporous elements that make cultured marble low maintenance also make it durable. The solid-surface material resists stains and chips, and a small scratch can generally be repaired by applying a gel compound that fixes the vanity top.
