Marble is one of the most timeless, elegant, and well-known options in natural stone.
At Granite of the Smokies, we are proud to be able to offer quality marble countertops to our clients in the Talbott, Tennessee area. With nearly 20 years of experience in natural stone, we feel that marble is one of the most timeless, elegant, and well-known options in natural stone and is a stunning choice for many design projects. Primarily considered a “bathroom stone,” marble is also a great choice for kitchens, fireplace surrounds, hearths, thresholds, windowsills and much more. Marble, in various forms, has been used for thousands of years around the world. From monuments to building facades, marble is a versatile stone choice. Marble has a lower density level than granite, so it is much softer and can scratch and etch; however, it is heat resistant and quite durable.
There is more maintenance required when selecting marble for your countertops. Sealing is highly recommended to avoid staining. The beauty and character of the stone comes from the way it will patina and age with the environment in which it is placed. Its most commonly known color pattern, gray and white Carrara, is only one of the many styles, colors, and types of marbles available. From quite subtle and soft to bold and statement-making, marble can be the perfect finishing touch to your next design project.
Whether you go with marble for all your kitchen countertops or one area you want to designate for baking and candy making (something marble is known to be exceptional for), we are happy to accommodate your needs. We hand-pick all the marble and other natural stone products we offer, so you can be confident of beautiful, exceptional options to choose from.
