Marble countertops are the dream of many aesthetes redoing their kitchens. But this premium surface can be rough on the checkbook, not to mention hard to maintain. Enter Caesarstone’s new Classico collection, offering five man-made options that mimic the real material, cutting down on costs while enhancing durability. The designs come in creamy ivories and rich charcoals (see Frosty Carrina and Emperadoro) and are stain-, scratch-, and water-resistant—good not only for countertops but also for furniture tops, vanities, and backsplashes. Check out the list of local Caesarstone retailers.
