Santa Margherita is an man made – or engineered – stone product. This one however is made in
Verona Italy and comes with a built in Italian flair for design. What sets it apart is the combination
of materials and the creative ways they are blended together. Not only can you get a base material of quartz but, if you prefer, Santa Margherita can be had with a base material of marble as well. Add in other materials like crushed mirror or glass or shell and you get a wide variety of looks. All the way from subtle to eye catching and exotic.
The Santa Margherita company has been at it for more than 40 years and exports to over 70 countries. The product is tough enough for commercial applications but elegant enough for the finest homes. The material is used in a wide variety of ways. Everything from floors, walls, stairs, window-sills and vanity tops. It can even be used outdoors. Of course, it makes a great kitchen countertop as well.
Some of the pluses include the wide variety of color, texture and size. Much of this variety is because Santa Margherita has been at it for a long time and has had time to develop a portfolio. But remember, there is a line made from quartz and there is a line made from marble. Using two different materials means that there is a built in difference in the look of the marble based line vs. the quartz based line. There is a practical difference as well. The quartz based line has built in toughness and durability. The marble based line has the elegance of marble.
For applications like flooring or countertops consider the quartz based “incarnation.” This gives you great strength and stands up well to scratching, chipping, stains, acids, mold and mildew. It’s also a breeze to clean up. The marble based line does well along walls where the elegance of marble really can make a big difference to a room.
Santa Margherita is a modern day, high tech building material. It is one that offers great flexibility
of application and offers an unmatched touch of design that might be what you’re looking for.
