Carrara Morro Quartz
There’s no denying the beauty of a calming Carrara marble, but not every homeowner is keen to use this natural stone for the counter surfaces in their home.
Pristine white marble is lovely and luminous, but because it is a softer stone (ranking at just 3 to 5 on the Mohs hardness scale), it can require extra care that is difficult to accommodate with a busy, modern lifestyle.
The good news is there’s a practical alternative that’s become incredibly popular in recent years. Engineered quartz is not only strong, durable, and resistant to damage, but it can be made to look like any number of attractive natural stone varieties, including marble.
Carrara Morro quartz, from MSI’s Q Premium Quartz collection, offers all the beauty of natural Carrara paired with the practical utility of a solid, engineered surface. It’s an ideal solution for modern homeowners who want to have their wine and drink it, too, without worrying about staining white countertops in the process.
The Calming Appeal of Carrara Morro
Carrara Morro is a low-variation, marble-look quartz with a creamy white background and pale gray wisps of veining scattered across the surface. Its cool nature works with neutrals, bright hues, and wood tones alike, making it a versatile choice for counter surfaces in kitchens, bathrooms, and laundry rooms — or even fireplace surrounds or flooring.
The pristine appeal and barely-there pattern imbue your living spaces with elegance and tranquility that transcends the hustle and bustle of daily life — you can fully relax when preparing meals or enjoying a long soak in the tub.
Carrara Morro is the perfect choice for any space in your home where your top priority is creating a serene and luxurious ambiance.
Manufactured in the USA
MSI’s quartz manufacturing facility in Latta, South Carolina, is a marvel of modern ingenuity, where innovative engineering produces some of the most beautiful and elegant designs in the industry.
The 360,000-square-foot plant combines patented processes with state-of-the-art machinery to create designs that mimic the natural colors and patterns of beloved marble and granite varieties. As a bonus, you can feel good about purchasing products made in the USA.
Seamless Options for Expansive Applications
The size of natural stone slabs is somewhat limited by the quarrying process, but this isn’t an issue with engineered quartz, which can be prefabricated in larger sizes.
This quartz comes in 2″ or 3″ thickness, with slabs measuring 108″x42″ or 112″x26″. This means you’ll enjoy nine feet or more of length for an expansive island and perimeter counter surfaces, shower enclosures and bath surrounds, and more, limiting or even eliminating unsightly seams in some cases.
Carrara Morro is also incredibly versatile, blending beautifully in tonal white kitchens, adding a creamy counterpoint to popular pastel cabinets, offsetting black or gray cabinetry in spectacular fashion, and even working well with cooler wood tones.
Hardware and fixtures in silvery shades will draw on the grays in your counter surface, while the addition of cool gold or brass will really pop and elevate the level of sophistication in your design.
Exceptional Quality and Utility
Aside from the stunning appearance of Carrara Morro quartz, there are plenty of practical benefits to be gained from including this material in your upgraded home design. For starters, quartz is incredibly strong and durable, exceeding the hardness of granite.
It’s resistant to damage like scratching, etching, cracking, and chipping, and because it’s non-porous, it’s also highly resistant to staining. This solid surface is hygienic and food-safe, as well as Greenguard, NSF, and Kosher certified.
In addition, quartz is easy to clean and maintain. Unlike natural stone, it never requires sealing, and it can be cleaned with a damp rag or with common household solvents like all-in-one cleansers. Residential customers will enjoy a limited lifetime warranty.
