Current Obsessions: White Quartz Countertops That Look Like Carrara Marble

November 04, 2017

Carrara marble is highly sought after for its unforgettable beauty. It’s not surprising, given its distinctive and gorgeous range of whites and grays and soft, smoky veining. Believe it or not, Carrara is also one of the more affordable high-end countertop surfaces. 

However, when it comes to choosing the perfect countertop, price isn’t the only factor to consider. In fact, many homeowners are turning to the luxurious marble look of quartz to achieve a countertop that fits both their budget and their lifestyle. And choosing quartz over marble is no compromise. For many homeowners, this realistic natural stone lookalike is a dream come true because it’s a durable, nearly maintenance-free countertop that won’t harbor germs. After all, most busy couples or active families don’t want to spend time sealing their countertops or worrying about spills staining their gorgeous surface. 

Is quartz starting to sound like it might be the perfect alternative for your home? Take a look at these beautiful rooms that feature some of MSI’s most beautiful white quartz countertops
