The “lavish and elaborate” baths of the ancient Roman Empire can be yours when you install the elegance of natural stone in your shower. But which stone? The Romans most often chose marble, but if that’s not your style, you have other options.
You can start by referring to Five Perfect Types of Stone to Use for a Shower. It lists your best choices—marble, granite, onyx, travertine, and sandstone. With a brief description of each, you can use this as your starting point in narrowing your search for the perfect stone for your shower and bathroom.
On second thought, only do as the Romans do when you’re in Rome. In your own home, choose what’s best for you!
