Does anyone has a marble counter top in their bathroom? Is it easy to keep up or do you get water spots? Does it have to be resealed yearly? I want to replace our old tile top and I am looking at marble. Is there any other product that works well in a bathroom?

I have marble counters in my kitchen and on a cupbard in diningroom. I love it and wished I had it a lot earlier. I don't know about the bathroom but why not? It's easy to clean and from the sealer put on when installed my counters do not water spot. I do have a mottled gray, white, and black to fit in with our decor so maybe with a total solid color it might be a problem. Check with you dealer.

We just remodeled our bathrooms last summer and put marble countertops in. We love them. They are very easy to keep clean. The installer said the best thing to clean marble with is simple green. Works like a charm.

Good Lcuk!

My family has had the same marble countertop in their kitchen in Greece for over 100 years- it is lovely and has aged well

I have marble vanity and bathroom counter tops. I am on this web page looking for advice on how to paint my marble top because they have stains on them. Rust, something purple like a marker and other stains. I have tried everything to get them off. Soaking the spots with Clorox to nail polish remover. Yes it's easy to clean but once you mess it up it's messed up for good.

I've got marble for bathroom counters. Yes, some water spots, but marble has so much more personality and richness that it's worth it. I'm going so far as to , heaven forbid, put it in my kitchen. I'm tired of granite. It has too much movement. Remember the show "Bridget loves Bernie"? One mom said, "old cashmere is better than new orlon". I'd rather have an old stately look than pristine and what everybody else does. Let's go for it!

I've had marble counters in a bathroom and kitchen. Never again! Marble is far too easy to dull, stain, or otherwise ruin the finish. After experience, I prefer to admire it in pictures-- in someone else's house!
