What Stone to Choose From
Granite has a texture that may be considered slip-resistant which makes granite a suitable floor material in areas that may be exposed to water such as in bathrooms and kitchens.
Granite is also extremely hard and considered as one of the best materials for countertops. The same prestige is associated with granite floors. However, unlike some of the considerations that may go into choosing a kitchen countertop material, perhaps having the hardest stone material for flooring is not a major factor for many when it comes to choosing a stone floor.
Nonetheless, granite seems to always be a high-priced and highly admired material — whether for flooring, kitchen counter, or even walls. Granite has a reputation for being the hardest and least porous and therefore the most durable, water-, stain-, and scratch-resistant stone material. This also means that granite is typically the most expensive natural stone material that can be installed as floors, walls, and countertops. With granite, you have a wide variety of selections in colors and patterns to really highlight or bring out the best home decor.
Marble is often marketed as an alternative to granite since marble is generally less expensive than granite.
However, you should know that marble is a porous stone and not as hard as granite. Marble can be found in different geographic locations all over the world.
Marble is available in a variety of many beautiful veins and patterns based on where they were quarried. Marbles come in many colors including white, black, gray, gold, beige, yellow, brown, blue, green, red, pink, and burgundy.
