Solid Stone Worktops Present This Stunning White Honed Patterned Carrara Marble Worktop
White Carrara marble, or Luna marble is a white or blue-grey marble.
Its popularity has grown over the years as it adds a touch of luxury wherever it’s installed. The origin of this marble dates back to Roman times when it was found in the mountains of Carrara region, Italy, after which it was named.
White Carrara Marble is a homogeneous stone. It comes in different shades, from white to grey ground colour, with shining grains and smoky grey veins all over the plates. The overall quality of this stone depends on its ground colour.
Essentially, there are two marble types:
- Bianco di Carrara C, which has a lighter ground colour
- Bianco di Carrara CD, which has a darker ground colour
White Carrara Marble is graded at the quarry, as either C or CD.
The difference in ground colours and irregular veins running through the stone make this a spectacular material for kitchen countertops. Over time, the White Carrara Marble has carried a prestigious reputation, primarily due to its unusual but capturing appearance.
White marble is hard wearing, ensuring durability. White marble tiles can also be used for walls and floors. The light colour and texture of this material make it a perfect fit for kitchens and toilets.
Using materials such as White Carrara Marble allows to create a room that exudes luxury, simplicity, and practicality.
