Marble, along with granite, is one of the most popular stones among our New Orleans customers. It’s easy to understand why when you look at the beauty and elegance that natural marble can bring to a home. Its beauty has been long-cherished— just look at the iconic Renaissance statues all sculpted from marble.
We import marble directly to our New Orleans facility, so we are able to offer gorgeous stone at a fraction of the cost.
Marble is highly coveted for its natural beauty and iconic marbled look. It’s usually white-based with beautiful colored streaks throughout that are made from minerals and impurities found in the stone. These marbled streaks give the stone a unique look—so much so that it’s very hard to find two pieces that are exactly alike.
Marble also offers many more design capabilities than other stones. Not only is that because of its typically white coloring, but also because of its hardness. Marble is a softer stone than granite or quartz, so it is much easier to cut into custom shapes. Curved countertops and beveled edges are much easier to achieve with marble because when you cut it at these angles, it will not crack or break like other stones.
We can talk all we want to about how beautiful natural marble countertops would be in your New Orleans home, but we’d rather let the stone speak for itself. Browse our marble selection online, and be sure to schedule an appointment to come see our stones in person.
