Milano combines the durability of quartz with the natural beauty of marble

There’s nothing like the marble look for creating the feeling of luxury in a kitchen or bathroom. CRL Quartz Milano is a low maintenance alternative to marble that still offers all the aesthetic benefits that make marble such a popular choice for our homes. The veined patterning adds drama and personality to any setting while blending seamlessly with virtually any other material and colour scheme.

Milano features delicate veining on a white background creating a truly dramatic effect. Team this marble-like surface with nature-inspired materials such as timber for a rustic look or with dark cabinets for a dramatic effect. The strong patterning will bring elegance to proceedings and is sure to make a striking impression whether used as a splashback, as a waterfall end on a kitchen island or even on a feature wall.

Milano is available in a polished finish and can be chosen in a 20mm or 30mm thickness. The stand-out surface is supplied in a large slab format measuring 1600 x 3200 mm, making it ideal for large expanses of space such as kitchen islands.

CRL Quartz Milano is also a highly practical and durable surface that is simple to care for. It is scratch, heat and stain resistant and, unlike natural materials such as marble, the surface never needs to be sealed. Requiring minimum maintenance to keep it looking as good as new, the nonporous surface makes cleaning simple, with soap and water or a mild detergent is all that is needed meaning Milano is perfectly suited for even the busiest kitchen or bathroom.

Bold marble-inspired design comes home with CRL Quartz

Always on trend, marble-effect surfaces from CRL Quartz add instant personality to the kitchen and bathroom. Now this look has shifted up a gear, with bold patterning stealing the limelight.

The ultimate home upgrade, Palermo and Lava Black are two new additions to the quartz collection from CRL Stone that tap into this luxury movement. This move towards flamboyance sees designers and consumers favouring colourful marble, with a myriad of swirls and veining that really draws the eye. Team this look with flashy brassware in fashionable metallic finishes for a classy kitchen design that never dates.

This look has enabled marble-inspired surfaces like Palermo and Lava Black to extend beyond kitchen worktops too. Extremely hardwearing and ideally suited to the kitchen due to its stain, scratch and heat resistant, CRL Quartz is also the perfect choice for splashbacks and even entire feature walls. There’s never been a better time to go back with marble in the home, with the latest CRL Quartz styles helping you do so in style.

Distinctively different but wonderfully aligned, Palermo and Lava Black are hard-working and visually striking surfaces that turn the kitchen worktop, bathroom countertop or wall surface into a work of art.

Palermo sees a crisp white background used as a blank canvas to the stunning bold marble-like veining that runs throughout to add character and huge personality to the kitchen or bathroom. With bookmatch options also possible, there is plenty of opportunity to create an entire marble-inspired look on a kitchen island fully adorned with Palermo.

On the other side of the colour spectrum, yet equally as striking, sits Lava Black. Sleek and sophisticated, this CRL Quartz surfaces is just as extravagant as Palermo. Adding drama to the kitchen or bathroom, Lava Black is calling out for the use of contrasting colours to really make the look pop.

Style aside, these new quartz surfaces offer practical advantages in abundance too. CRL Quartz is an ideal material for use in any setting, including kitchens and bathrooms. Highly resistant to knocks and impacts, it is water, heat, scratch and stain resistant, and no extra care or special products are needed to clean it.

Stains can be removed with water or mild cleaning products and, because it is a non-porous surface, the build-up of bacteria or mould is prevented, making it hygienic and easy to maintain. The most difficult task will be choosing which look to opt for in your home.

New quartz colours offer even more choice for your kitchen or bathroom

When you are choosing a new kitchen worktop or bathroom countertop, it is important that the surface chosen is versatile. It’s a highly visible fixture so it needs to work in harmony with other materials and colours in the room. CRL Quartz surfaces can be introduced seamlessly into any style of home, whether classic or contemporary and now with the introduction of three new colours there is even more choice, adding to the versatility of this material.

Responding to trends in kitchen and bathroom design which are leaning more and more towards the use of nature-inspired materials, bold patterning and muted, neutral colour palettes, the three new CRL Quartz surfaces offer even more opportunity to introduce the latest looks into the home with ease.

Inspired by classic marble and with a natural feel that helps bring the outdoors in all year round, Vesuvius combines with virtually any other material and colourway. Its distinctive pattern will make the surface into an instant focal point wherever and however it is used. Strong and vibrant, yet subtle enough to blend seamlessly into its surroundings, Vesuvius is an elegant mix of classic and modern.

CRL Quartz Staccato

For something a little darker, the CRL Quartz range also now features Staccato. Darker tones in kitchen design are particularly prominent in 2021 and this surface makes introducing the look a real joy. Staccato offers all the beauty of marble in a highly practical quartz. Its white veining running throughout is a brilliant contrast to the darker background and makes a really striking impression. This surface would work particularly well over large spaces like island units or splashbacks.

The third new surface to join the CRL Quartz range is Urban Grey. While its name might suggest this is a material best suited to contemporary interiors, this is a quartz that will be quite at home in traditional settings too. The trend for shades of grey in the kitchen and the bathroom has been going strong for some time now and shows no signs of abating. This popular colourway combines effortlessly with virtually any other colour and offers something of a blank canvas for inputting your own personality and creativity. Urban Grey has a subtle fleck running throughout the surface for a modern twist on a design classic.

CRL Quartz Urban Grey

Each of the three new quartz surfaces are excellent partners for some of the hottest trends in kitchen design, including the use of materials such as wood and metal for an industrial-inspired look.

CRL Quartz is not only highly practical for rooms like the kitchen, it is also undeniably striking whichever style is chosen. This makes it the perfect choice for use on kitchen islands, splashbacks and worktops in more general areas. The visual advantages of this material are not outweighed by the practical benefits, with quartz being an incredibly hard-wearing, durable and easy to clean surface, resistant to scratches, stains and water making it the perfect choice for areas of the home such as the kitchen and bathroom.
