Proper Care and Protection of Marble Furniture

Marble Furniture Requires Proper Care and Protection to Retain Its Appeal

Marble furniture can add to the aura and aesthetic of virtually any room in a home; whether in your kitchen, dining room, living room, bedroom, or office, the natural beauty of a marble table top, pedestal, or base is difficult to surpass in terms of its elegance and timeliness.

But like other types of high-end furniture constructed of wood, chrome, metal, and/or glass, your marble furniture needs appropriate care and protection to preserve its appeal.  Despite its weight and solid feel, marble is actually a soft and porous stone; as a result, it is readily susceptible to various types of damage such as:

  • Chips
  • Stains
  • Cracks
  • Gouges
  • Imprints
  • Scratches
  • Discolouration

To maintain the look of your marble table top or furniture, and thus extend the lifespan of this investment in your home, you may want to practice the following care and precautions on a regular and consistent basis:

  • Marble Furniture Care Do:
    • Apply a marble sealant (every one to two years)
    • Blot up spills immediately (even if it is only water)
    • Clean surfaces with warm water or marble cleaner
    • Buff-dry surfaces using a cotton cloth or a chamois
    • Put coasters under all drinks; keep toiletries in a tray
    • Use protective pads under heavy ornaments/accessories
    • Use placemats under plates, stands/pads below hot dishes
  • Marble Furniture Care – Do Not:
    • Cut food directly on a marble table top
    • Use acidic cleaners (vinegar, lemon spray)
    • Apply abrasive cleaners, powders, or creams
    • Use the surface as a worktop for home repair jobs
    • Sit, stand, or place heavy weight on a marble table top

With a proper amount of care and attention, marble furniture will retain its durability and its lustre, in turn offering many years of functionality as well as the ambience and beauty that you want and expect in your overall interior décor.
