Natural Stones for Showers
Lesher Natural Stone, Quartz, & Tile has close relationships with many suppliers and can source quartz, marble, granite and other stones for use in custom shower fixtures. Different materials have different properties — choosing the best option for your home requires that you consider multiple factors:
- Appearance: Marble, granite and other stones all have distinct appearances, whereas quartz is more versatile. While marble is a popular, elegant choice, it’s also prone to discoloration with repeated exposure to dyes and chemicals. Granite has a brownish or grey appearance that works well with rustic or contemporary designs, while other stones such as onyx, sandstone, and slate are unique in their own ways.
- Cost: Granite is one of our more economical options, followed by marble and quartz. Pricing for other stones can vary. It’s important to remember that, when it comes to stone, you get what you pay for — spending extra for a premium material means higher quality as well as more options in terms of color and texture.
- Durability: Stone showers are exposed to hot water on a daily basis. As noted above, marble can become discolored over time. While this doesn’t mean you can’t use marble in a shower, it does require extra maintenance, including regular refinishing to preserve its characteristic look and feel. Granite and quartz offer improved stain resistance as well as better overall durability, and can be a better option for anyone who wants worry-free performance.
