Having granite or other natural stones, such as marble, limestone, travertine, or even slate, in your bathroom, is a becoming an increasingly more popular choice. However, there is something to keep in mind when choosing to use one of these gorgeous natural stones in your bathroom, and that is humidity! As if living in Houston was not humid enough, bathrooms in this humid climate, with their warm showers and baths, might as well be saunas. The issue this proposes is that natural stone is incredibly sensitive to moisture and humidity, especially when it is not properly cared for.

So what can you do to keep the moisture and humidity from destroying your investment and gorgeous bathroom?
