7 Must-See Quartz Countertops That Look Like Natural Stone

March 11, 2019

If your kitchen is the heart of your home, you need a durable, and beautiful countertop that can withstand the daily grind, and do it beautifully! Innovations in the manner in which quartz countertops are designed and manufactured have made it possible to create realistic natural stone looks in long-lasting and maintenance-free quartz. Here are seven of our favorite quartz countertops that genuinely look like natural stone. 

There is just something about a white kitchen that says, “welcome home.” White kitchens are timeless, but they can lean a bit sterile if they lack hints of color. That’s why a white countertop like the beautiful Cascade White granite-look quartz in this kitchen is a perfect addition to the space! This quartz countertop adds character and makes the kitchen even more inviting.

Quartzite, not to be confused with quartz, is a natural stone with exquisite veining and shades and it is generally more expensive than quartz. Artisan designers have recreated the look of the most popular quartzite in our Calacatta Taj quartz slabs beautifully. Whispers of gold and green highlight nature’s finest hours, all wrapped in a countertop that never needs sealing or maintenance.

For a more contemporary aesthetic, many designers turn to low-variation limestone countertops. But natural limestone isn’t suitable for every home and application. Our Fossil Brown limestone-look quartz is the perfect complement to this transitional kitchen; the countertops look simply divine set against the white cabinetry and subway tiles.

Another of our favorite white quartz countertops in our collection is our Pelican White that stunningly recreates granite’s subtle inflections and veins. This quartz countertop has the flexibility to fit right in with traditional spaces or modern spaces, and it looks great with a variety of natural stone mosaic tile backsplashes.
