Maintaining “the look” is very important to any remodeling project. Many projects in the St Paul, MN, neighborhood are attempting to revamp the original look of these older homes. Many have existing combinations of white subway tile, white cabinets, and white marble countertops. White Carrara marble is the traditional material that is found in many of these older homes, but the sensitive nature of this marble makes it impractical for some families. Quartz alternatives are a great option where marble may fall short. Caesarstone has a great “carrara-look” color that is a very realistic duplication of the classic marble. Quantra, Silestone and Hanstone also have some good options in a more economical price range. These quartz alternatives that strive to replicate the classic White Carrara look are gaining in popularity, and make creating turn of the century look easier and more user friendly.
