At In Home Stone we want to make the process of picking out your new stone countertops as seamless as possible. For that reason, we are excited to introduce our Slab Inventory. Our Slab Inventory provides you the opportunity to see which slabs we currently have in our warehouse in live time. Using the Kitchen Visualizer tool will give you a better idea of how each slab looks installed and will help narrow down your favorites. Once you find a slab you like, please call our Sales Team and set up an appointment to come see your stone slab in person. We look forward to seeing you!
Q: What if I am working on my own?
A: While we work with designers, builders, and architects, we also have vast experience assisting homeowners with the selection of their material through the installation.
Q: Do I need to make an appointment?
A: We do encourage appointments so that we can dedicate a salesperson to work with you one on one and discuss your project needs. However, you are welcome to stop by and browse our remnant yards and warehouse to view our selection at your convenience.
Q: What should I bring with me to my first appointment?
A: If available, please bring your project’s plans. From those drawings, we can create an estimate. Additionally, please bring any photos you have collected of your preferences (as well as your dislikes), perhaps from Pinterest and Houzz accounts. It will also be helpful to bring samples of cabinets and paint colors, if available.
Q: What happens if you do not have exactly what I want?
A: In Home Stone carries an extensive collection of stone, we also work closely with several distributors increasing the range of products from which we can pull.

Benefits of Marble Countertops
Marble is a natural stone, meaning it's more resistant than many of the other available countertop materials to scratching, shattering, and splitting. In terms of its toughness, marble is smoother than granite, so appealing architectural features can be integrated.
Every piece is distinctive in appearance since marble was developed by a natural process. The region of origin and the relative combination of minerals in the original stone define the diverse variety of textures and colors used in marble.
Resistance to Heat
Marble countertops are also thermally resistant. Marble does not catch fire or flame, so by not putting a hot pan or pot on the surface without cover, it is prudent to maintain the polish.
For a very long period of time, marble has been used as a construction material, so its ability to stand harsh weather conditions is well known. You should continue to appreciate the elegance of marble for a lifetime as it is expertly built and well sealed and preserved.
Naturally, Marble remains cold
Making it the ideal surface for bakery products, since it usually stays below room temperature. This is why marble countertops are favored by bakers above many natural stones.
What distinguishes it from the other natural stones is the timeless, elegant look of marble countertops.
