Alba Pietra quartzite is a stunning natural stone with elegant aesthetics displaying sporadic silver-grey veins on a light smokey grey backdrop.
This stone is exceptionally versatile, and you can use it for many design projects, including kitchen worktops, bathroom walls, fireplace surrounds, and more.
The Alba Pietra quartzite is comparable to more famous stones like Carrara marble, but it offers durability and stain resistance, making it closer to granite in terms of performance. This resilient, white and grey veined stone shares similar vein movements with other quartzites such as Calacatta Brazil and Bianco Eclipse.
Alba Pietra quartzite worktops come in extra-large slabs of various dimensions, thicknesses, and finishes, including polished and bookmatched patterns.
The slab size commonly covers an area of approximately six square metres, making it perfect for extensive kitchen islands and waterfalls that need durable and resistant material that can withstand scratches, heat, and stains.
An Alba Pietra quartzite worktop is a highly versatile and durable natural stone quarried in the Porto Alegre in Brazil, with Dolomitic minerals giving it a unique white-silver appearance.
In addition, its irregular silver shading veins on a light grey background provide a unique look and will transition beautifully into any modern kitchen design.
Alba White Quartzite
The Exquisite Silver Natural Stone Surface built by nature for home-wide design.
If you love interior design, you should prioritize functionality and beauty when creating the heart of your home. And one of the materials we highly recommend using is Alba Pietra quartzite. This natural white quartzite emanates elegance and refinement while being durable enough to withstand the demands of intensive daily use.
You can effortlessly combine Alba Pietra in your kitchen using elegant black cookware, matte finish spouts, and streamlined kitchen cabinets with modern hardware for a minimalist and trendy look. This creates a neat, uncluttered look that is perfect for modern London homes.
For a more traditional feel, combine Alba Pietra worktops with a matching splashback quartzite and bring warm wood tones for the units, the kitchen floor, and accents. Brass or copper spouts and hardware can add a tinge of grace and old charm to the space.
To add texture and interest, you can also use natural materials such as rattan, jute, or linen for window treatments, chopping boards, and other additions.
Alba Pietra quartzite is also ideal to combine with bold and bright colours for a fun and lively look. Use it as a backdrop for colourful doors or as a splashback.
In addition, decorative items like colourful tiles, paintings, or plants can add pops of colour and create an inviting ambience in the kitchen.
