How to Choose the Right Stone for Your Home

You have many options when it comes to beautiful, long-lasting natural stone for your home’s interior and exterior: slate, granite, marble, quartz-based stone, soapstone, and limestone, just to name a few. Choosing a natural stone for your home is a very personal decision, much like selecting wallpaper or artwork.


While there are scores of natural stones to consider, some are better suited than others to particular uses in and around the home.

  • Marble: Ideal for foyers, bathrooms, floors & hearths
  • Granite: Excellent for kitchen countertops, floors & heavily used surfaces
  • Travertine, Limestone, Soapstone, Sandstone & Slate: Beautiful enhancement for your home inside & out
