Why Calacatta Marble is the Ultimate Design Statement?
Calacatta Marble is a unique natural stone quarried in the grandiose mountains of Carrara, Italy. What sets Calacatta Marble apart is its bold veining, varying from grey to gold, set against a crisp white background. This dramatic contrast lends a unique appeal to Calacatta Marble, making it a popular choice among both modern and traditional design enthusiasts.
Furthermore, each Calacatta Marble slab is one-of-a-kind, with veining details and background colour variations that add to its charm. Whether it’s a Calacatta Marble kitchen countertop or a Calacatta stone benchtop, this luxurious material breathes life and elegance into any space.
While not as common due to its high cost, Calacatta Marble flooring can add an opulent touch to your kitchen. The marble’s durability makes it suitable for high-traffic areas like the kitchen.
How to Clean and Maintain Calacatta Marble
Despite its regal appeal, Calacatta Marble does require regular maintenance to retain its pristine appearance. Here are some essential care tips for your Calacatta Marble:
Calacatta Marble is a porous material, so regular sealing can help the floors and walls protect against spills and stains.
A soft, damp cloth is all you need to clean your Calacatta Marble. Avoid abrasive cleaners, which can scratch the surface.
If a stain occurs, it’s best to address it immediately. A poultice can effectively draw out the stain from the marble.

Calacatta Marble vs. Carrara Marble: Which one to choose?
Calacatta and Carrara marbles, both originating from Carrara, Italy, each have unique characteristics that set them apart.
Calacatta Marble is renowned for its pure white background and bold, dramatic veining, whereas Carrara Marble features a greyish background with softer, less contrasting veining.
Calacatta Marble is rarer and more expensive than Carrara Marble due to its unique veining and colour variations.
Both marbles are versatile and ideal for countertops, flooring, and wall cladding. However, due to Calacatta Marble’s high cost, it’s often used as a focal point in kitchens and bathrooms between kitchens or in smaller, high-impact areas.
