Quartz Alternative to White Carrara Marble Kitchen Countertops
If you love the look of white Carrera Marble in the kitchen, but are concerned that it is too delicate for your family’s lifestyle, then have a close look at some of these quartz options as an alternative to traditional white marble in your kitchen.
Quartz is a very hard material and can give you a natural stone look with consistent color and texture throughout the quartz countertop. Each slab looks the same, which helps minimize the visable seems that you will get in marble countertop installations. Quartz is easy to maintain and doesn’t require the annual sealing required by natural stone.
Here are some nice options we share with our clients:
Cambria’s Torquay (quartz): Cambria’s Torquay is described by Cambria as having “a posh, continental feel much like the English Riviera town itself, with a pure milky nature that is complemented by swirls of gray and tan.”
Silestone’s Lyra (quartz):
