What is Calacatta marble and which type is best for a Calacatta worktop?

If you’re thinking of installing a marble worktop in your kitchen, you may have heard a Calacatta worktop is the one you need. But why? Calacatta marble is a dazzling type of luxury marble adored throughout the world.

Let’s take a deep dive into what Calacatta marble is and which is the right type of Calacatta worktop for your kitchen.

What is Calacatta marble?

Calacatta marble is the best type of marble in the world. It’s a superior Italian marble found in a single quarry in the Apuan Mountains of Carrara in Tuscany. This rare, expensive style of marble is revered for its delicate light grey veining tinged with amber and gold accents.

From Ancient Rome to the Renaissance and Baroque architecture, Calacatta is the marble of choice for many of the world’s most famous marble structures. Its use in everything from iconic buildings to statues and cathedrals means when we think of marble, the distinct look of Calacatta comes to mind.

However, there are many different types of marble called Calacatta marble from quarries all over the world. These are not original Calacatta marble but are still extremely popular with a beautiful finish. For example, Calacatta Lincoln is an exceptional white marble quarried in America and used for the Lincoln Memorial plus other Washington structures.

Calacatta’s stunning appearance and status as a luxury stone still make it a top choice for use inexpensive homes, hotels and structures today. But what about a kitchen worktop?

Which type of Calacatta marble is best for a Calacatta worktop?

Unfortunately, when it comes to your kitchen original Calacatta marble won’t look good for long. Like all marble, a Calacatta worktop will end up with all sorts of stains and damage within no time at all.

Marble is a porous stone so it’s highly absorbent. It’s also sensitive to acids and alkaline which rules out getting tons of food and drink, like lemon, red wine or vinegar as well as cleaning products anywhere near a Calacatta marble worktop.

And that’s not all. Scratches, abrasions, dropped objects and heat will all inflict more damage. However, there is a way to obtain a premium type of Calacatta worktop for your kitchen.

Calacatta quartz is manufactured to look exactly like Calacatta marble and even experts find it difficult to pinpoint any differences between the two. A Calacatta quartz worktop is designed to do all the practical things a Calacatta countertop can’t.

Calacatta quartz worktops are favoured for their highly resistant properties and magnificent appearance. You’ll get the same beautiful veining as the original Calacatta but a Calacatta quartz worktop will also resist scratches, abrasions, heat and spills.

Quartz worktops are one of the best types of kitchen worktops around, granite is the other. They’re made from crushed natural quartz crystals mixed with glue-like polymer resins to form a robust, long-lasting worktop with a stunning finish.

If you want a Calacatta countertop that will last, a Calacatta quartz worktop is the one to go for.

Do you sell directly to the public?

Yes, we supply all kinds of worktops including calacatta worktops. By doing so we can ensure you get the best service and price. By cutting out the middleman and passing the savings on to you.

What must I have on site when you arrive to do the templating?

Before the survey you need to ensure all cabinets are level, have sufficient braces and are secure firmly to the wall. Make sure you know the final location of the sinks, hobs, taps and any other fittings required with your calacatta worktops and have these available on site. Please ensure after the survey cabinets are not moved as the measurements taken during the survey are crucial for a perfect worktop installation. Any changes after the survey will cause significant delays and incur extra charges.

Can we plaster the walls after you have templated?

No, this needs to be done before the templating. Tiling should be done after the calacatta worktops are installed.

How long from the templating will it take to fit my worktops?

We normally delivery and fit worktops within 4-10 working days from the survey. (7 day from sale to fit on certain occasions, call for details)

How accurate is an online quote?

The price calculated using the online guide price, which will only change if and when we come out to template, the measurements and your requirements change from the original quote online.

Outstanding service, I couldn’t be more pleased with how my worktops came out, I ordered calacatta white and this is by far the cheapest place I found, they got a quote to me within a few hours and even helped me pick what material was best for my kitchen as I’ve had issues in the past. I can’t say enough positive things about them, the fitters were amazing so polite and kind, cleaned up all the mess and polished the worktops. I am so so impressed with this service and would highly highly recommend it.
I shall be writing a review anywhere they let me as they couldn’t do enough to make sure the job was perfect 😁
