Black And White: Our Favorite Quartz Countertops

May 12, 2019


Life is complicated — maybe that’s why homeowners are turning to the simple design combination of black and white. It’s one of this year’s biggest trends! It’s a classic combination, trendy or not. Black and white quartz countertops are timeless and make styling a breeze because there are so many possibilities and so many ways to incorporate it into your own personal style.

Glossy black and sparkling white quartz take a lot of the guesswork out of choosing accessories and other design elements. Simply go with a monochromatic scheme for the major components, such as walls, furniture, and accessories and it will all match perfectly. Add a pop of color that can be switched out if you like, such as wall art, cushions, or curtains.

Speaking of easy, you can’t get any easier than quartz countertops. When you combine the simplicity of black and white with super easy-care quartz, your home truly becomes a haven from the world. Here are a few of our favorites from MSI’s popular Quartz collection.

Black and white is the ultimate neutral to design a room around because it complements any décor style, from contemporary to rustic. Using various tones of white and softer black or gray or even shades of beige modernizes the classic combo. Babylon Gray Quartz is a monochromatic blend of black and mid-tone gray with lighter accents, and by choosing other elements that match these shades, you can’t go wrong.

The combination of black and white quartz countertops is sometimes called “tuxedo.” Depending on the other décor, it can be as casual or formal as the homeowners want. Like natural marble, Calacatta Botanica Quartz is sophisticated and elegant. Since it’s quartz, however, this is a kitchen you can live in without worrying about the work of keeping it clean.

Mara Blanca Quartz

Installing both white and black quartz counters is a popular trend. One way to soften the sometimes stark combination of black and white is to incorporate wood or wood-look tile flooring. This is especially useful with subtly patterned quartz countertops such as Mara Blanca combined with clean, basic edges and simple cabinetry with little embellishment. The wood adds just the right natural touch.

Calacatta Clara Quartz
