WHY I CHOSE MARBLE OVER QUARTZ
I’m sure what everyone wants to know is would I choose marble again? The short answer is yes! But here’s the full story…
I chose marble over quartz for two main reasons: the look and the price.
The beauty, warmth, and character of a natural stone gets me every time.
We began with this island that has a natural stone top (pretty sure it’s marble, but what kind exactly, I don’t know). My husband gave it to me for my birthday after we moved into this home, and I absolutely love it. I also knew that I wanted marble subway tile as a backsplash. So I started collecting marble-look quartz options…
And they all looked fake next to the real marble.
I tried, y’all, really. I brought home probably 20 different samples of quartz from various manufacturers, but they all either looked too pink or too yellow or – most of all – too uniform. They simply didn’t have the natural variety and irregularity of our real marbles. I’ve seen some incredible homes that use all quartz, and it almost looks like real marble, but as soon as I brought in the real stone island and backsplash (which were non-negotiables for me), it began to look fake. And then I priced the difference and realized that in our area, marble was going to save me money.
