Which Natural Stone should I use?
Deciding to use Natural Stone in your home is the easy part. Choosing a specific type is where things get a bit more complicated, as it can be hard to notice the subtle differences at first. Here’s a quick breakdown of the 2 most common natural stones in households, Marble and Granite.
Choosing the right material for your needs
In summary, Marble has more of a classy and elegant look, but comes at a higher price, less convenience and more maintenance. You also need to be more careful with acidic products and strong chemicals. Granite is a bit cheaper, but still looks great – there is a very wide range so you can find one that suits your taste. It is more stronger and you don’t need to worry about chemicals, spills, scratches and chipping as much as you do with marble.
