The difference between Calacatta and Carrara Marble

26-Nov-2015 If, after weighing up your various natural stone options, you choose marble worktops, you will need to make several other choices including the colour and type of edging you would like. Another important decision is deciding between Calacatta and Carrara marble.

Both of these types of marble are beautiful and luxurious. Some Calacatta patterns are large, thick and well-defined. Carrara marble normally has finer veining. There are some varieties with thicker veining but these patterns are light in colour and they have more of a feathered effect rather than distinct lines.

The colours of each type of marble vary which means that you will always be able to find the perfect match for your bathroom, kitchen, or any other area of your home. Combining more than one colour in a room will help both of them stand out in their own way. For example, if you fit a gray Carrara marble backsplash and your worktops are white, they will compliment one another beautifully and give you that feeling of elegance.

Another point that these two types of marble have in common is the location from which they are mined. Both come from a place called Carrara in Italy and both varieties are highly sought after in many countries due to their sophisticated natural design.
