    I love to use Calacatta Gold in my kitchen and bathroom.  But I am worry for the stain and all the wear-down issues. What should I do?  Use it or go with the natural granite?  Thanks.

    You can use marble if you want, but just be prepared for a certain degree of wear-down that the countertops will shown over time such as etches, stains, and chips. Unless you will rarely use the kitchen for cooking and are very careful. In addition, you can help minimize these issues by choosing a honed surface finish and sealing the stone every six months wit a strong, professional sealer. Marble such as Calacatta Gold is very unique-looking and you will not find any granite like it. Stronger stones that look similar to marble and are popular for kitchen countertops are colors such as Classic White and White Fantasy. Hope this helps!

    I am looking to Calacatta GOld (mostly taupe veining) in my kitchen, but of course everyone says "Marble isn't good for a kitchen!" Help! It's the look I want with dark cherry cabinets and very light blue/gray walls. Any suggestions

    You would have to keep the Calcatta marble sealed to keep it stain resistant. Marble has been used in showers for hundreds of years with great success.

    Unfortunately, we do not carry tiles. We have large, full slabs which are much thicker than tile so you may want to consider contacting a tile vendor in your area. Good luck!

    Calacatta marble can surely be fabricated into a round table top to the measurements you require. Just make sure you have adequate support with the iron base as marble is softer and fragile compared to granite. For pricing on this project, please contact our sales office: www.Marmidicarrara.com

    Hi I am looking to make a rather large dining room table top..I am hoping to find either a Calcutta gold or something similar in a 75" round for an iron base. Is that even possible and what would you suggest?

    08:58PM, Jan 25 2012 You should measure your kitchen cabinets to create a layout of the countertops. The length and width of the countertops is needed for an estimate. Please watch this video:

    06:50PM, Oct 26 2011 There is no rule saying that you can't, but it's a rather soft and fragile material that is more susceptible to stains, chips, and scratches. It requires high maintenance to stay looking new and pretty. If you're up for the task, you can find out more information here: http://www.Marmidicarrara.com

    06:01PM, Oct 24 2011 You can use marble in a kitchen; however, it is not recommended because it can scratch, stain and chip faster than granite. Keep in mind marble will etch and develop patina over time which is a natural and expected part of using marble. Since a kitchen get a lot of usage, it’s easier to damage it as opposed to using it in a bath. As long as you properly clean and maintain it, you shouldn’t have any problems.

    02:51PM, Jul 11 2011 Jean,
    Remember, shipments of the stone will vary so it’s always best to view the slabs in person to see the beautiful features the stone has to offer.  Before any fabricator does the cutting, you should approve the slab and the layout to make sure you get exactly what you want.

    01:53PM, Jul 11 2011 Well, Calacatta 'Gold' variety has golden tone in the veins and streaks. It's not fully gold, but the grey veins should have outlines of golden in them. That is high quality Calacatta slabs.
  • Jean 12:43AM, Jul 8 2011 Should I look for a yellow gold tone in Calactta gold or is it more like Carrera just white and gray? I have been told there is a big difference but looking at photos I can not see much difference.

    12:57PM, Jun 10 2011 While marble such as Calacatta is a softer stone than granite and more prone to stains and chips, marble is still a popular choice for kitchen islands. It's a classic and timeless look that brings softness to any design. If you're willing to live with the high maintenance as well as the wear and tear of marble, then there is no reason why you should not use Calacatta. Hope this helps.
