ALL ABOUT CARRARA MARBLE
Carrara Marble is not just any marble, it is the epitome of “the” marble. It has a prestigious reputation for its lasting beauty and timeless elegance and has been used for more than two thousand years by the most famous sculptures and architects worldwide. From The Pietá by Michelangelo, the Oslo Opera House, and the atrium of the new World Trade Center at 432 Park Avenue in New York City.
Made in Italy
Just like Calacatta Marble, Carrara Marble is an exceptionally rare marble that can only be found in the quarries of the mountains of Carrara, Italy.
A unique luxurious look.
A unique luxurious look
Carrara Marble features a soft white hue with a blue undertone. It has a calming appearance and web-like gray veining. Carrara marble slabs are usually thin, homogeneous, and compact grain. This last element makes Carrara marble extremely unique and popular for commercial and residential projects. It gives the stone a special shine that brings brightness to the rooms and spaces where it is inserted.
Carrara marble is particularly popular for residential projects, it is the go-to stone for many designers in home decoration. It works great in kitchens as countertops, indoor swimming pools, and our personal favorite in bathrooms - because of the unique shine that it brings into the room. It works particularly great as a light accent for dark rooms. Carrara marble can also be used for tiles, carved into crown moldings, or turned into custom-made furniture.
Care & Maintenance
With the proper care, Carrara marble can last decades. To void any molding or stains, wipe every spill immediately. Never use any abrasive scrubbers or bleach, use regular soapy water to clean your marble. Keep in mind you will have to seal it regularly, especially if you are using it as a countertop, to avoid discoloration or any cracks in the stone.
Carrara marble is considered a luxury product, but it’s still a bit more affordable than other marble slabs. If you decide to implement Carrara marble into your house, it is key to remember that it will not only look beautiful, it will be an investment in your property.
