Your home offers many ways to put your stamp of personality on it, from the décor you choose to the materials and textures you prefer. But there’s one somewhat surprising area that you might be overlooking in your design plan that, when done well, can become the focal point of the room: your kitchen or bathroom countertop.
If you opt for a quartz countertop, you’d be amazed at its versatility in color, and what’s more, quartz is extraordinarily consistent in color, pattern, and texture.
Color Options For Quartz Countertops
When it comes to options, you’re spoiled for choice with quartz. The natural colors and patterns will give insight into the depth and character of this engineered stone. When you select the color of your quartz countertop, remember to keep not just your shade preference in mind but what you want the overall room to portray. The hue you pick can do just this.
Solid Or Patterned
Firstly, choose between patterned or solid shades. A solid hue can make your room look refined, sleek, and low-key, and you can pick from shades that include the entire spectrum from subdued or dramatic black, gray, white to neutral tan and beige, or brighter blue, green, orange, pink, and red, among several others.
A one-shade gray, white, or black quartz can make your room look luxurious and elegant, while a warm mocha color can give your home an understated, homey touch. If you want to add openness and brightness to your space, you cannot go wrong with white or light-colored quartz.
This color has a distinct advantage over darker-hued quartz. The other benefit is that it allows you to change the rest of the décor to just about anything, as it fits in with various looks. So, your lighter-colored quartz countertop will look just at home in a Scandinavian-styled kitchen or bathroom as it would in a beach-inspired home.
If darker tones are more your style and you like a touch of drama with functionality, black, dark grays, deep browns, and glamorous reds, blues, and greens can enhance the aesthetics of your space while covering up stains and spills. Remember that even within the dark shades, you get varieties.
For instance, a modern, crisp snowy white could give the room a different feel from softer, more timeless ivory. Similarly, a light blue can infuse your space with tranquility, while a navy one can envelop it in luxury. If you have a lot of wood or metal, try quartz in tan, beige, taupe, or pale rose tones, which complement these materials exceptionally well.
Mix And Match
If you’d instead not stick to one hue, you can have fun mixing and matching. A patterned quartz countertop can be more intriguing and adventurous, especially in contemporary spaces. You can pick eye-catching variations and patterns to transform your room with just this detail.
For instance, if you want to retain the understated look, add in a dash of style. Think barely-there mottling on a solid hue, delicate gold veins, or even swirls of color running through the quartz to add in some visual interest.
While you can mix, match, and blend shades till you arrive at the look you envisioned, there are a few tips to keep in mind first. Start by collecting samples of your final selection, and then hold them up against your flooring and décor to see how they fit.
If you picked a dramatic speckled black to add flair and flamboyance to a room, did you first ensure you have the right room size where this color would stand out? Your lighting can also play a significant role, affecting how the quartz countertops look.
Finally, your cabinetry and flooring should match or contrast with your countertop colors so that everything comes together to look fabulous.
