Before you purchase marble slabs, you may want to ensure that marble is what you really want. Therefore, you will need to know the difference between marble and other stones, such as granite.

Do you know the difference between granite and marble? Knowing the difference can help you decide which of these two great-looking stones will suit your home best. Both granite and marble have been around for a long time, and both have different uses. They also have extremely different characteristics between the two.


Difference Between Granite and Marble Slab

 For example, marble slabs usually have very neat veining, a little bit more of a subtle pattern a lot of the time. You can get marble that has a bit more character to it, but granite is known for giving a little bit more uniqueness and depth; the crystals, feldspars, and micas give it a one-of-a-kind character.

Should I Choose Granite or Marble Slab in Hardeeville?

 If you want to have what the Joneses have, the granite is probably a slightly higher seller in Hardeeville. As mentioned, there are different usages for each stone. Granites are very good on any surface. They are extremely durable, reliable, and easy to maintain. This is something to consider and is one of the nice parts of owning granite. It's one of the most durable and sanitary surfaces on the market today.

Marble is about equal to granite in terms of sanitary, but in terms of durability, marble requires a little bit more maintenance. You'll definitely want to be mindful of how different acids and chemicals can etch the polish of the marble. With granites, you don't have to worry about that as much.


Do Marble Slabs Look Better than Granite?

 Marble is very nice, and we recommend them a lot for, say, shower walls, tub surrounds, bathroom vanities, and very nice-looking pieces on a fireplace. Marble slabs are definitely more practical for indoor use than outdoor use. Granite, on the other hand, does very well both indoors and outdoors.

Whether you're using granite outside on a BBQ, by the fireplace, inside of a kitchen, or even just a facade of a wall, granite is one of the most versatile stones in existence. Marble is very beautiful and has an elegant look to it. The nice part about marble is that, over time, it actually starts to look a little bit aged, and that's what a lot of people like about the marble.

As far as the kitchen is concerned, you can use marble if you want to. You just need to know that marble is going to be higher maintenance and require more effort to keep it from etching. Again, you'll have to decide for yourself.
