Natural stone slabs aren’t just for countertops. There are many other uses for natural stones throughout your home. One of our favorite uses for natural stone is in the shower. It’s beautiful, easy to clean, and upgrades your bathroom from a utilitarian room to a sanctuary. But just like when we use stone for countertops, different types have certain characteristics that make them preferable for a shower. At Spencer Granite, we will fabricate and install a tub or shower in your preferred stone.


Here are some types of natural stone that will be great in your shower.



Granite is resistant to water stains, making it an excellent choice for a shower. It’s also low-porous, which means that it doesn’t absorb liquids very easily. There is a lot of natural variation in both the color and patterns of granite, adding a natural beauty to your bathroom. You can also easily find a slab that matches your color scheme or that you can build a color scheme around.



Marble is beautiful, pristine, and elegant. Nothing makes a statement like having a marble bathroom. White is the most common color of marble slabs, but there are other colors as well. Marble is a little bit more porous than granite and requires more maintenance. However, many people think that it is worth the extra effort.



Slate is a more understated choice if you want natural stone, but it is also a very practical one. It’s slip-resistant, which is ideal for a shower. Slate adds texture and depth to your shower walls, but it can also be darker than some people would like. If your bathroom is already very well-lit, slate can be the perfect choice for a natural stone shower.
