Quartz is a great option to use as countertops due to its variety of colors and designs. Carrara Mist is a man-made quartz that is part of Natural Premium Quartz brand. Carrara Mist offers the visual appeal of exquisite marble but the low maintenance and durability of quartz
A slab of Carrara mist has a variety of shades of gray, a bit of bone-white color and a small line of movements throughout the piece with a creamy background. Here I added a picture of what a complete slab of Carrara Mist looks like.
Of course we always recommend our clients that it is better to visit a professional where they have a real sample of the material to see if those are the colors you have in mind.

What has been our experience fabricating and installing Carrara Mist countertops?
We have installed several projects of countertops with Carrara Mist and thank God there has been no difficulty in the process of manufacturing the countertops, nor at the time of installation. Until now we think it is a good quality material.
How does the Carrara Mist countertop look like?
Here I will share some photos of when we were in the process of installing the countertops. These photos are one of the many projects that we have fabricated and installed for interior decorator Amy Shea at Shea Interiors.
Here we are in the process of installing the countertops on the kitchen cabinets.
Here we are installing the kitchen countertop in the part where the sink goes.
This is the L kitchen countertop where the sink is located. This enormous counter was installed with one seam due to the length of this L countertop piece and the size of the slab.
We fabricated 3" Mitered edges on all the countertops, including on the kitchen island.
We can fabricate and install kitchen island countertops in any size as per our clients wants, but it is necessary to take into account certain details such as: the homeowner of the house, general contractor, designer or business owner does not care that a joint on the countertop exists?. If the countertops installation is on a first floor normally there are no problems concerning the size of the countertop or kitchen island, but if the installation is above the first floor then it is necessary to take into account the size of the elevator. If the installation of the countertop is on a second floor or any other than the first one, it is necessary to measure the access of the corridor and the entrance door as well.
The size of this kitchen island was based on the size of the slab and the 3 inch mitered edge on all 4 sides. When the slab shows veins, it is necessary that those pieces of the edge come out of the same slab and with the sequence of the same cut so that the mitered edges are in harmony with the flow and movement of the veins.
