Featuring the elegance of marble with the durability of granite, quartzite countertops are one of the most unique natural stone surfaces loved by interior designers, and homeowners are taking notice. This metamorphic stone is a more reliable, sturdy surface than beloved marble because it is non-porous, resists stains and scratches, and offers low maintenance with only occasional sealing. Quartzite comes in stunning shades of whites and grays that are reminiscent of marble as well as various colors, each with shimmery looks, detailed veining, and swirly patterns. But, with quartzite, you can have your swoon-worthy kitchen or bathroom and actually use it, too! Check out these favorite quartzite counters for some remodel inspiration.
White Macaubas comes with a marble-esque look but with a more modern aesthetic. The white quartzite with gray veining adds subtle elegance thanks to its soothing tones, while the linear pattern creates a cleaner, simpler style. The light natural stone from Brazil beautifully contrasts with darker cabinetry like in this contemporary kitchen. The horizontal pattern makes the room feel larger by following the lines of the dual-height countertop.
And you won’t have to worry about cooking on these white countertops!

The remarkable natural stone from Brazil highlights the two kitchen islands in this generous cooking space.
