In More Detail – The Popular Carrara Quartz in a Large Open-plan Living Space2 min read

Set within the beautiful county of Hertfordshire not that far from the showroom, we completed this handmade kitchen with luxurious quartz worktops. The kitchen became part of a major renovation project and our client wanted to opt for a stone that was versatile to match and stood the test of time.

This bespoke kitchen in Hitchin was handcrafted by @planetfurnitureltd – a family-owned business who have been creating beautiful, bespoke kitchens and fine fitted furniture for over 20 years. The design they came up with the client was a single wall galley layout with a large island sitting centrally and a drinks cabinet and breakfast pantry designed into the far left of the room separated by a dining table.

The client wanted to choose a highly practical surface so it would withstand lots of family use while creating the look they wanted within their dream kitchen. There were many options available but their heart was set on the Carrara. The Carrara quartz is an ever so popular stone that works in both contemporary and traditional homes.

It consists of a white background with elegant veins fracturing through the surface. The Carrara marble style quartz is a real beauty and we were so excited to show it off in this home.

Taking our attention to the drinks cabinet where the Carrara quartz worktop works its magic as a cold shelf, the ideal place to slice those lemons and limes for the perfect summer cocktail.

To complete the breakfast pantry not only did we use the stone as a cold shelf but we made a gorgeous backdrop too.

Even incorporated it into the day pantry.

We added a full-height splashback to the back wall, perfect for those spills and splatters.

We are loving the different tones in this handmade kitchen where the Carrara quartz pops out at every opportunity.

We wanted to give you a closer shot of just how beautiful this quartz really is. The most perfect option in this kitchen design.
