To Distress Or Not To Distress? When it comes to installing stone kitchen counter tops, Granite tends to be the material of choice because it is so durable. Marble is much more likely to chip and break and it is more at risk form the day to day kitchen accidents like broken glasses and spilled food or wine. Granite is much more able to withstand this type of ongoing punishment and is far less likely to fall victim to staining like Marble is. Some people actually see this as positive thing in relation to marble. They like the aesthetic effect of a little bit of wear and tear on their counter tops to give a slightly vintage look to them, in such the same way as people often do with intentionally distressed clothing. Marble is quite often likened to a fine wine which gets better as it matures. One of the main benefits of Marble is that it is completely waterproof and will not suffer damage from steam or splashes from washing dishes. However, to really prolong its life the stone does need to be sealed by a professional. This needs to been repeated every so often to maintain the seal. The manufacturer should be able to offer advice about how often this needs to be carried out.
When it comes to fire safety in the kitchen, you should pay attention to what you are doing. Kitchens burn down because people sometimes forget about shutting off the stove, the microwave, or oven. Once the oil gets hotter, it starts to smoke, then bursts into a fiery blaze which can be impossible to extinguish alone. For small fires, you can certainly do something about it by getting fire extinguishers. They are truly valuable when combustion unexpectedly occurs.Also, watch carefully your electrical wires. Cord snags can pose problems and may get someone electrocuted. Never plug or unplug kitchen equipment and appliances especially if your hands are damp. You do not want to become a kitchen casualty just because you have forgotten that cardinal rule.
