Countertops-Marble Alternatives 

When considering countertops for your kitchen or bath, consider some alternatives to carra marble. While Carrara marble adds beauty, sophistication and value to your home-it can be very pricey and high matinenace.  Let’s just be realistic for a moment-your little one spills red juice all over your beautiful marble counter tops-you rush to clean it up. Regular marble countertops need proper cleaning, polishing and sealing to protect it often. Below I have listed some beautiful, affordable and durable alternatives ( psssst check out the  new laminate calaccatta marble countertops!!! My favorite! ) 

1. Cambria Quartz Torquay 
This is a beautiful alternative to marble, but is made of quartz. 


2. Helix Silestone -quartz 


Photo cred. Silestone USA

While there are a few other Silestone counter tops- this one caught my eye the most.

3. Princess White Granite ( actually quartzite) 


Lastly my favorite and least expensive is…laminate ( yes, I really did just say laminate!) This stuff has come a long ways – and one company does a great job- 

3. Formica Calacatta Marble – you can’t even really tell its laminate until you touch it! Did I mention it’s basically maintenance free and very durable!
