At Granite Grannies, craftsmanship comes first. With a simple but striking marble countertop, you can instantly add class and tradition to any section of your home.

It’s no wonder so many homeowners these days are choosing marble as their go-to stone for countertops. Each piece is unique, it’s easy to work with, and it has a classic look and feel that compliments almost any room.

When you choose marble, you’re making a statement. It is relatively affordable compared to other stone types, but it never looks that way — there’s a reason why so many buildings and statues from bygone eras are made of marble. If the Greeks and Romans loved marble for its traits, then that tells you a lot about it!

Marble countertops are perfect for:

  • Kitchens
  • Bathrooms
  • Indoor Bars
  • Outdoor Bars
  • Deck Areas

You’ve probably seen it represented it in any number of modern references such as history books, television documentaries or even movies, but did you know that marble has been used as a building material since before the times of the Greeks and Romans, over 2,000 years ago? Because of its natural beauty and geographical accessibility, it was an obvious choice as an architectural and artisanal component for the people living in that era.

Although the origin of the word “marble” probably predates the Greeks, they are generally credited with first using the stone as a dominant material in their buildings and statues. The famous Parthenon in Athens, completed in 438 BC, is a massive structure with columns and tiles made of marble and a foundation built from limestone; the fact that it is still standing to this day is a testament to the durability of marble.

Marble is considered to be a “soft” stone and therefore easy to process and work with, hence its appeal as a crafting material. Don’t let that fool you into thinking that marble is too wimpy for your countertops, though — many types of marble, such as Danby, are surprisingly resistant to weather damage, stains, and chipping. If you’re looking for a stone that has a unique beauty, in addition to being tough enough to use as a custom countertop material, Danby marble may be the perfect choice for you.

Due to the way marble forms, it’s a great choice for homeowners wishing to add a unique look to their kitchen or bathroom. Marble countertops are also available in a variety of colors, ranging from classic cream-white to deep black with almost everything in between.

Main BG

As far as appearance goes, there are no downsides to using marble for your countertops. However, because of its perceived value and the length of time it takes to mine, marble can be a bit more expensive to acquire and install. In addition, some softer types of marble are prone to staining and chipping, so if maintenance is a concern, you may want to consider a tougher stone for your countertops.
