We are finally updating our kitchen!!! Like most people, I have been enamored with the idea of using Carrara Marble for the last several years. This natural stone is surely stunning but what about it’s functionality and maintenance? We all know messes and spills happen, especially in a kitchen. Because of it’s porous nature, I started to think it may not be the right fit for us long term. I began researching to find a white countertop surface that had less upkeep and more functionality. I found white quartz, it’s a great alternative to marble yet still gives that clean,bright and natural aesthetic.
