Everyone likes the appearance of a marble worktop, but not everyone likes the price tag and upkeep that comes with it. This is why quartz can be such a fantastic alternative; it looks similar, but it’s much lower in maintenance, meaning you’ll never have to worry about marks or spills in your kitchen. Marble is prone to staining, and even simple liquids such as water can mark your counter.
White countertops have been creeping ahead in popularity compared to black worktops over the past few years, most noticeably with the introduction of the upscale kitchen farmhouse style. A popular white worktop is Carrara Marble, and people often don’t realise that quartz can look exactly the same, if not better.
Another, often overlooked benefit is that each quartz slab can be made to look exactly the same – so you can avoid the seams and divisions often found in naturally occurring slabs of granite or marble.
Take a look at some of our quartz that resembles white marble, Bianco Carrara is certainly our favourite; the light grey textures add to the marbled effect:
Not only are they durable and maintenance free, the whites and greys of these styles are brilliant at reflecting the natural light in your kitchen to really brighten it up. That’s just one of the reasons it is such a popular look these days with house buyers and interior designers alike. For an even more striking effect, try combining it with dark coloured cabinets or walls.
And it’s not just farmhouse kitchens that suit this style of white worktop. The colour works well in all types of spaces, including the ultra-modern, traditional and classic kitchen looks.
