 Lets Compare Marble With White Granite

Revered for its beauty, Italian marble offers a classic, luxurious look that stands the test of time. Carrara, Calacatta, and Statuario marbles, for example, have been go-to building materials for monuments and decorative architecture for centuries. While marble offers longevity, it doesn’t stay looking shiny and new.  So, if you’re a homeowner who likes that polished “brand spanking new” look, what do you do? White Granite just might be a solution for you. 

Lets back up a minute and discuss what happens to marble. Since marble is a calcium-based material, it will begin to develop a patina as it ages. For some, this is part of marble’s allure. The look is inimitable and many view it as a sign that a countertop, table, or floor has been “well-loved.” In fact, this is a big reason why marble countertops remain so popular in Europe. They view this as evidence of good times shared with loved ones. 

Due to its composition, marble may stain and etch faster than granite will. So, if you prefer the gleam of a shimmery new surface, be sure to look into white granite. 

White granite offers the same timeless beauty and elegance as marble, but it’s far less likely to break, chip, crack, scratch, or stain. Plus, with regular sealing and proper care, white granite will hold onto the glossy look longer. 

Just like white marble, white granite blends beautifully with just about any cabinet finish and any décor style. Here are a couple of choices you’ll find here at Marble & Granite, Inc.
