Marble is a luxurious natural stone that will bring a touch of elegance to your bathroom. Marble is available in varying colorations with unique veining. It’s a softer natural stone than granite, so it is susceptible to chips and scratches but is resistant to heat; however, marble is porous and does require intermittent sealing to stop stains and etching from occurring. Without sealing, marble and granite are susceptible to stains from acidic liquids. Whether you choose granite or marble, clean up any stains immediately.
