    The cool white of Carrara marble is a bath classic, but can be hard to keep clean with the heavy use most baths see. Sub it for Carrara style engineered quartz, whose nonporous, stain and mildew-resistant surface will stay clean and white thanks to the bacteria-resistant properties of the stone. Then add unique charm, pairing this traditional bathroom surface with the texture and visual interest of mosaic wall tiles.
