Marble is one of nature’s most beautiful and luxurious materials. Effortlessly elegant and incredibly durable, marble is a fantastic choice for a show-stopping dining table. Add an eye-catching marble dining table to your eating area to create a sensational space you and your family will love.
Although it’s a natural material, marble has a distinctly luxurious look and feel. Used for millennia to decorate buildings, artworks and homes, marble works well in all types of interior design themes.
Because marble is such an eye-catching material, it makes a great focal point. So if you want your square or round dining table to be the centrepiece in your dining area, choosing a marble top is a great way to achieve your interior design goals.
As well as looking good, marble is incredibly durable. Formed between 200 million and 60 million years ago, the stone, if properly cared for, could last for millennia more.
When looking for the perfect marble dining table for your home, there are a few things you need to keep in mind. One of the most important is size. If your dining area is cosy and intimate, opt for a dining table set for 4. These four seaters are ideal for eat-in kitchens and smaller dining spaces.
If you have a big kitchen/diner or a dedicated dining room, go for a bigger dining table set for 6. A six-seater marble top dining table will help to give your eating area a focal point and ensure your family has plenty of room to spread out.
Another great option is an extendable dining table. These versatile pieces can be adjusted to suit your space and your lifestyle.

Like all table tops, marble table tops need some maintenance in order to keep them looking good. However, the material is no more difficult to care for than wood and should prove even more durable if properly maintained.
The best way to keep your marble table top in good condition is to wipe it down with a soft, dry cloth every day and clean up any spills as soon as they happen. If your table-top does become stained, use a gentle detergent, like washing up liquid, to remove the mark. Sealing the marble will further help to prevent discolouration. Always use a specialist product to seal your table to ensure it looks as good as possible.
Although it is very durable, marble can be scratched by abrasive materials. To avoid damaging your table top, use coasters and heat mats when serving hot drinks and plates and try not to put anything sharp on the surface.
Granite and marble are both hard, durable materials that will add style and texture to your living space. Granite is harder than marble so is less likely to scratch. However, marble is more varied and more luxurious, making it a great choice for table tops.
