If marble is your favorite countertop material, you’re not alone. Classic, sophisticated and one-of-a-kind, marble offers a timeless look and elegant quality that many homeowners seek for their kitchens and bathrooms. The distinctive luxury of top marble verities like Carrara and Calacatta is known around the world.
But real natural stone countertops are not for everyone. If you can’t get enough of marble’s beauty but you don’t have the time or means to give marble counters the care they need, consider quartz countertops that look like marble!
What is Quartz?
Quartz is considered an “engineered stone,” composed of about 94% ground quartz (a common mineral) along with 6% resins and pigments. This unique, extremely durable surface can be designed in a huge range of colors and patterns, often with the intention of emulating real stone.
One of the most popular patterns is quartz that looks like marble. With all the timeless style and dramatic veining of real marble without the upkeep that’s required for natural stone, marble-look quartz countertops are an excellent choice for many kitchens and bathrooms. Let’s check out some of our favorite new marble-look slabs from our selection of Della Terra® Quartz.
