Choosing the Right Quartz Countertop

When it comes to kitchen countertops, quartz is one of the top material options out there. This material is made from natural quartz stone combined with resin, creating a beautiful and durable final product that’s extremely versatile.

There are several different styles and textures available when it comes to a quartz countertop. At Accent Interiors, our pros can help you chose the perfect style to complement the rest of your home. Here are some basic tips we can offer.

Texture

Firstly, consider the texture of your countertop. One of the main attractions of quartz as a product is the wide range of textures available – you can get a very stone-heavy look with actual visible pieces of stone, or you can hit the other end of the spectrum with much smoother options.

You may want to involve the aesthetics of the rest of your home in this decision. If you’re looking to mimic the traditional look of granite this is also possible using quartz.

Color

Engineered stone like quartz comes with a big range of choices when it comes to color. You’ll often find darker, natural shades of black complemented by hues like bright red and snowy white, which help bring out some of their accents. For a modern look, consider monochromatic shades that are actually ground into the stone itself – these provide a crisp, clean style.

Versatility

Quartz tops can be used throughout the house, though they’re most commonly found in the kitchen. They can also be used in areas like the bathroom, laundry rooms, offices, workrooms, workshops and many more. They can offer either an antique or modern look depending on the style you’re going for, and can vary between rooms if you choose more than one upgrade.
