Looks Like Marble
As you may have noticed, the marble look is in! It is everywhere. You see it on flooring, cutting boards, tables, backsplashes- I have even seen a marble print on wallpaper! It is timeless and beautiful. But when it comes to a worksurface the real thing might not be all that you dreamt of. It is a porous material (meaning it can stain) and it is a softer stone (meaning it can scratch). If this is a concern for you the solution is to consider a man-made look-a-like.
I recently specified a quartz product by Zodiaq for a kitchen and I just had to share these photos with you because I was speechless when I saw the slabs. They are absolutely stunning!
This colour is called Calacatta Natura. For this kitchen it had the perfect combination of whites, greys, and a warm brown. I was impressed by the range of neutral tones it had and the depth of the veining. I was even more impressed when the slabs came in bookmatched- they are almost a perfect mirror image of each other. This is definitely a colour I would recommend.
If this is a look you are aspiring to achieve here are a couple more of my personal favourites:
- Caesarstone, 5131 Calacatta Nuvo:
- Cambria, Brittanica
