Carrara Quartz Kitchen Worktops & Splashback

MGD recently had the pleasure of providing and installing beautiful Carrara Quartz worktops, splashback, and upstands for a client’s kitchen remodel. We worked closely with the client to select the perfect marble-look quartz material from our Carrara Quartz range to match their vision for a light and airy yet durable, kitchen design.

The Project

The scope of work for this job included:

Material Selection:

We helped the client narrow down their choice to Polished Carrara Quartz 30mm slab for the worktops and 20mm for the full-height splashback and upstands. This stunning marble look quartz offers durability along with an elegant aesthetic.


Our skilled technicians fabricated the slabs in our workshop, including cutting to size, creating a custom window sill with angle-cut edges, single chamfer edge profiles, polished sink cutout with drainage grooves, and custom upstands and splashback.


We professionally installed the worktops, upstands and splashback on-site, ensuring a perfect fit to the client’s specifications.

The Result

The client was thrilled with the end result! The light and bright Carrara Quartz we supplied and installed creates a breathtaking feature wall with the full-height splashback, and seamlessly integrates with the white cabinetry for a cohesive look. The worktops provide ample durable surface space in this family kitchen, with custom details like the angle-cut window sill adding character. Overall, this newly remodeled kitchen reflects the client’s dreams of a functional yet elegant space.

Carrara Quartz Explained: About The Stone

Our client selected the ever-popular Carrara Quartz from our range for their kitchen worktops and splashback. This elegant quartz is inspired by the luxurious aesthetic of natural Carrara marble, originating from the Carrara region in Tuscany, Italy.

For centuries, the pure white and grey veining of Italian Carrara marble has been beloved by sculptors including Michelangelo. The iconic natural stone quarries of Carrara continue supplying marble today that finds its way into prestigious architecture, sculptures and homes worldwide.

By emulating the colours and veining of natural Carrara in an engineered stone, Carrara Quartz brings a timeless, high-end style into a durable, low maintenance and affordable quartz material suitable for kitchen worktops.

Benefits of Carrara Quartz

Choosing Carrara Quartz supplied and fabricated by MGD delivered several advantages for this kitchen project:

Durability – As a quartz stone, it offers superior scratch, stain, and heat resistance compared to natural marble surfaces. This makes it an ideal low-maintenance choice for busy family kitchens.

Beauty – The Carrara styling with gentle grey veining imitates the covetable refined look of Italian Carrara at a more accessible price point.

Customisation – We were able to fabricate the slabs to create custom profiles, cutouts, angles and more to perfectly suit the client’s kitchen layout.

Seamless Look – By providing worktops, splashback and upstands in matching Carrara Quartz, the whole space flows beautifully.

Affordability – Our Carrara Quartz range allows clients to achieve the marble aesthetic they love at a more affordable investment than natural carved Carrara marble.
