Many homeowners need a bathroom countertop to handle the demands of a busy family, while others desire a luxury look for their upscale, hotel-inspired lavatory. Quartz is an engineered surface that suits the needs of both by offering practicality and high style! 

Quartz is one of the safest materials to use for your bathroom remodel or new build, whether that includes a small powder bath or large master ensuite. The non-porous surface resists germs and bacteria, which means every member of the family can use the countertop safely. It also resists water and stains, so any water splashes or personal care product spills won’t damage your man-made material.

With quartz, you can get the stately stylings of stone but without the expensive price tag! They beautifully mimic natural stone, including a wide selection of various marble looks that go beyond the classic veining. Not only do prefab quartz countertops come in a wide range of colors, patterns, and finishes, but they also are available in different bathroom countertop edges, too. 

One of the biggest benefits of a quartz countertop is that it’s supposed to last a lifetime. With facts like these, it’s no wonder that quartz is being used in more and more bathrooms!

Upcoming trends will be leaning toward more organic looks, and this contemporary bathroom features a modern design infused with nature-inspired styles. Fossil is a mid-tone taupe color with tonal specks that looks similar to that of natural quartzite. The exotic wooden vanity is a warm contrast to the more modern earthy vibe from the neutral porcelain wall tile and stone pebble shower.

Cascade White

Before quartz became one of the most popular countertop choices, granite was the go-to for many. But, quartz is actually harder than the natural stone and comes in a range of granite lookalikes, such as Cascade White. The milky white background is layered with muted grays, silvers, taupes, and creams. The pieces of added stone and pearl in the pattern reflect the smaller-scaled mosaic tiles around the mirror and shower in this traditional bathroom.

Calacatta Vicenza

Quartz is one of the best ways to get a luxurious look without paying for pricey marble. This transitional bathroom features clean lines and classic elements, from the modern Calacatta Vicenza countertop to the marble hexagon wall tile to the rich wood cabinetry and wardrobe. The white quartz countertop with subtle gray veining is an elegant yet modern choice for this large master ensuite as well as a top designer pick! 

Concerto

One of the most popular quartz colors is gray, and that includes concrete looks. This super sleek and chic bathroom is given a bit of an industrial feel thanks to the Concerto quartz. It features soft frosts and dove grays with small specks of charcoal. The coloring contrasts with the warm wooden floating vanity yet almost blends in with the gray painted walls and back feature wall.

Sahara Beige

Another trend gaining in popularity is warmer tones, so it’s no surprise that Sahara Beige is featured in this master bathroom. The softer beige with warm amber and brick accents is a very versatile option. Instead of choosing all white, these homeowners added some beige and buttery yellow tones in keeping with a monochromatic color scheme. 

We think you’ll want one of these quartz beauties in your bathroom, but if you feel like you haven’t found the one just yet, don’t fret! MSI has 90 colors to choose from, including high-end stone styles. Check out more marble look quartz online or visit your local MSI showroom to see and feel them for yourself!
