White Macaubas Quartzite Kitchen

By installing White Macaubas Quartzite countertops, these homeowner's were able to obtain the look of marble without its porous qualities and maintenance. These natural stone countertops complement the polished Calacata Gold marble and glass Toledo pattern mosaic tile backsplash wonderfully, making it stand out like an art piece.

We partnered with DPM Designs, LLC of Medford, NJ on this project.

Hi henga00,

I apologize for the delay in getting back to you. White Macaubas can be a more difficult stone to work with from a fabricator's end because it is a very hard stone. Quartzite is actually harder than granite, so it is more labor intensive to work with.

It can be a little bit more maintenance for a homeowner than granite. We have heard of this stone etching (or dulling) from acidic products being left on the surface. Consequently, we recommend that you have this stone honed when it is installed. To prevent etching from occurring, simply wipe up any spills (especially those from coffee, fruit juices, and oils) in a timely manner.

Nevertheless, it is a beautiful stone, and we still install it rather frequently.

I hope this is helpful!

Hi lcskaisgir,

You are correct; there are no seams in the perimeter countertop. The White Macaubas is a beautiful stone! We love it. It gives you the look of marble without the maintenance. Best of luck during your search!

Also, I see paint on the island cabinets. I'm testing blacks, browns, and greys. What did you use?

The island cabinetry is actually stained a rich espresso color.

Thank you for your question! The backsplash is the Toledo Lucido pattern from the Vetromarmi collection by Artistic Tile.

Hi revster,

The cabinets are Colonial White from Sherwin Williams. White Macaubas is wonderful! I would really consider it if you like the look of marble but do not want the upkeep.
