Marble and Granite for Louisiana Homes

Marble and granite are Louisiana’s favorite stone slab materials. Although they are both beautiful natural stone materials, you may find that one or the other fits better with your style and personal aesthetic.

Marble has an elegant and luxurious look, which adds a timeless grace to any room in your home, from kitchen to bath, from bedroom to the deck. Because it catches and reflects light, marble has a luminous glow that also gives your home a warm and welcoming feel. Marble can be found in a wide range of colors and patterns, and it can be finished with a honed or matte look or polished to a high gloss.

Granite is harder than marble and extremely durable. Heat-, scratch- and stain-resistant, granite makes up the majority of stone slab countertop purchases, but it’s also popular for floors and walls. Granite is also available in a huge array of colors and patterns. To clean your granite slab, simply wipe clean with a damp cloth.

Both types of stone will require periodic resealing, but with proper care, beautiful marble and granite design accents will retain their natural beauty.

Stone 101

First, learn the basic facts about each of these stones. Marble is a metamorphic rock whose very name comes from the Greek for "gleaming stone”. It has been associated with fine art and architecture through the ages. Granite is an igneous rock, which is among the hardest and most abundant minerals on Earth. Both of these stones are available in neutral tones, as well as in a range of different colors that include rare exotic varieties.
