IN THIS ARTICLE

Undoubtedly, White Carrara is the most famous marble in the world. It is prevalent around London homes, bars, restaurants, and even at the local gym.

But because it is a natural material, you will find that its veining and backdrop vary from block to block. As a result, there are Carrara marble slabs with different looks and shading, whether the veining, the base, or the finish, that not always can match your design’s colour scheme.

Some Carrara marble worktops have darker grey veins than others, and some have brownish and golden touches that complement their patterns. And is not always easy to find a perfect design and shading for your style. Plus, if you are a busy bee, you may not have time to upkeep the marble. The Carrara marble variations are almost infinite.

With this dilemma, our suppliers Brachot-Hermant Unistone have come up with different Carrara quartz designs to get as close to your favourite slab of natural marble Carrara as your overall design requires.

With 9 different Carrara effect marble surfaces in the collection, Unistone has the most significant number of options out of our leading quartz brands.

This article showcases these attractive Carrara quartz options to help you choose the suitable design for your project.

Unistone Carrara Misterio Quartz

Carrara marble is a beautiful, classic material used in art and architecture for centuries. But it’s also a high-maintenance stone that must be regularly sealed and polished.

Unistone Carrara Misterio quartz mimics the look of genuine Carrara marble without needing regular maintenance, giving your home the luxurious look of natural Italian stone without all the hassle.

It is a best-seller from our Unistone colours for a reason: It offers grey veins in high definition and a smooth surface that is only comparable to authentic Italian stone.

Whether you choose the polished finish or Unistone Misterio Velluto, the stone helps highlight antique details in classic spaces.

For example, a traditional fireplace surround or a round table top. With a heat resistance of 150 Celsius, the quartz won’t burn or scorch.

Unistone Carrara Venatino Quartz

Carrara Venatino is a variety from Italy that offers more striking veins than typical Carrara marble, resulting in higher prices for the material. Its veining is similar to the famous Statuario or Calacatta Lincoln marble but more subtle.

And although Unistone Carrara Venatino belongs to Unistone prices group 3 instead of price group 2 from this collection, the price difference between quartz products is minimal compared to marble.

Our Unistone Carrara Venatino is an off-white marbled design with occasional streaks and veins of darker shades that make it perfect for high-end applications or focal areas such as an elegant and dramatic staircase.

FAQ

Why Choose Carrara quartz? Why Unistone?

Carrara quartz is a beautiful, luxurious material that can add a touch of elegance to any home. But what makes Carrara quartz so unique? Here are two of the main reasons why Carrara quartz is the perfect choice for your home improvement project:

1. Carrara quartz is impervious to scratches, stains, and heat. So if you’re looking for a material that will stand up to daily wear and tear, Carrara quartz is the way to go.

2. Carrara quartz is low-maintenance. Unlike marble, Carrara quartz doesn’t require regular sealing or polishing. So if you’re looking for a material that’s easy to care for, Carrara quartz is the way to go.

Why should I use Unistone as a surface material?

Many clients often ask us whether to choose Silestone or Unistone (or Caesarstone, Compac, for the same matter)

With more than ten years of experience supplying and installing Unistone worktops and over 20 years of Silestone worktop installations, The Worktop Library is yet to find a substantial difference in performance between the materials of these brands.

And we can make the same statement about Compac Quartz and Caesarstone, the other two leading quartz brands with over 40 years of existence on the market.

The simple answer is that you should use Unistone when the surface colouring and shading are the perfect tone and pattern for your design.

Alternatively, you can use this quartz brand if you have set a strict budget for your project. Generally, Unistone quartz colours cost a little bit less than major quartz brands because it has lower operative costs. But these don’t impact the quality and product’s performance.


What is Unistone Brachot Hermant?

Unistone and Brachot-Hermant are two different names from separate entities. Brachot-Hermant is a natural and engineered stone processor and distributor from Belgium. It owns the Unistone brand and has the exclusive distribution of Unistone Quartz in the United Kingdom.


Is there a Unistone showroom?

No, but The Worktop Library in London can get your slabs delivered to its factory so you can inspect them in detail before your project’s fabrication.

However, because quartz is a manufactured material, what you see in the samples is pretty much what you will see in the entire slab. Hence, viewing quartz slabs in person (as opposed to natural materials such as marble) is generally unnecessary if you already saw and tested a Unistone sample.


Unistone Warranty – Key Details

10 Years Warranty from Unistone: Unistone quartz surfaces provide composite quartz slabs of the most outstanding quality because they use the leading Bretonstone technology prevalent in only the top quartz brands, containing over 90% genuine quartz.

The Unistone warranty is unique because you don’t need to fill out or send complex forms to the manufacturer. Instead, keep your receipt and use it as proof of purchase when and if you need it.

The three key terms of Unistone’s warranty are below. If you want to read the full Unistone warranty, click here.

  • You are the rightful owner, with regular use and care, against its UK’s 10-year warranty on product faults.
  • Check the worktops in detail upon completion of your installation to ensure the quartz doesn’t show defects after installation, reporting those immediately.
  • The only obligation from the brand is to replace the purchased slab, and the warranty does not cover the cost of disassembling, repairing, or remanufacturing. Additionally, the Unistone warranty does not cover additional expenses like re-plastering, plumbing, or electrical wiring.
