Choosing a Quartz for your Kitchen Design

Learn more about Carrara Quartz

Choosing

As one of the most desired kitchen worktops, Calacatta quartz is diverse in its appearances, and the choice just gets bigger! With manufacturers each having one or several designs, its commonplace to find the same names for different designs. However, despite the name, choosing the calcatta quartz that resonates with you is made difficult by small samples or 5.5 metres2 of calacatta quartz condensed into a small, poor quality image. We strongly recommend that you visit the quartz material either in our yard or at the many local quartz suppliers that stock them.

Vein Variations

The variations in calacatta quartz veins can differ substantially in many ways and can be loosely divided into the following four styles:

  • Streaking wide bands of single to multiple tones of grey, either, evenly spread and/or crossing one another.
  • Directional and multilayered veins that cross from one side of the slab to another.
  • Bands of gold with interlayed fine grey to gold streaks.
  • Mixture of sweeping veins and groups of interspersed spidery entangled veins.

There is also a distinct difference with the quality of the veining and the cost of the calacatta quartz surface, although, this depends on what is visualised or which calacatta quartz made you consider it being the worktop choice for you.

Kitchen Design

It is extremely important that you discuss your kitchen design choice of a calacatta worktop with a proffessional quartz worktop fabricator as early as possible. Advice, guidance and the considerations that need to be made with regards to material, joins, vein direction and vein matching can only be assessed by the fabricator that will cut the calacatta quartz material. Guidance that could making a substantial difference in the final appearance as well as the overall cost of your calacatta quartz kitchen worktop.

Kleiss Geci 'Dolche', Twickenham

Calacatta Dolche
Cashmere quartz is one of many carrara variations currently available. The carrara chopping board that is a necessity when preparing food, compliments and protects the surface.

Full Splashback
A popular option for single run kitchens with an island is to have a full splashback. With quartz slabs being a set size, and the requirement for 2 slabs of quartz material with islands wider than one metre, why not use that left over material?

Island
Galley kitchen islands are great for open plan kitchen designs, especially if the island length is not too large to circumnavigate. Maximising on visual space is what full length breakfast bar islands achieve without fail, even better when its a galley kitchen island.

Loved the work Mgm & Rocks done at my place. A friend recommended Eddie and the team after they were happy with their worktop. They walked me through the different options of quartz worktops and when I gave them the thumbs up everything came on time as they said.. cut perfect to the millimeter. Also, with other on going works at my property they just cracked on and made the whole experience stress free. Thanks Eddie & Team; Everything is as I expected!

Kida's 'Compac Unique', Tottenham

Compac Unique Calacatta
Probably one of the most beautiful, striking, and close imitations of real marble. Unique Calacatta has a pure white background with clean veins that blend almost realistically.

Full Splashback
The perfect splashback is one that allows the vein to flow from the worktop up through the splashback. Its important to check with us prior to getting your hopes up, as it depends wholly on your kitchen design and your budget. Slashbacks can require as much material as your worktops, we will be glad to draw up a 'cutting' layout to help with the designing your kitchen.

End Panel
Framing of closing of the kitchen with End panels is neat and effective. Allowing a calacatta quartz vein to flow down as a waterfall side is even better. Mitred for clean joins allows an almost seemless vein join.>

Recessed Drainer
Fluted grooves cut into your worktop are aesthetically pleasing, having them cut into a recessed surface can really set your worktop alight.

I couldn’t be happier with the end result from the work done by the Mgm team. After viewing many samples at their workshop me and my husband were spoilt for choice with the amazing quartz and natural marble slabs available. We finally came to a conclusion of choosing a white quartz slab with grey and beige veins. They came to take measurements in our kitchen and within a few days the slab was ready to be fitted. The fitting was very swift and professional. I had my kitchen counter and slashbacks done and now my whole kitchen looks brand new and so much more brighter. I have already recommended these guys to so many family and friends which were so impressed with the work done in my kitchen. 5-star service with 5-star design!
