3 quartz countertop alternatives to concrete that look like the real thing

Did you know that the average American kitchen contains about 30 square feet of countertop space?

Well, it's true! If you're looking to ensure that your kitchen is the perfect place for cooking, designing, and entertaining, you'll need to focus on getting high-quality countertops. This can be a challenge, but luckily MSI offers a variety of solutions that you're sure to love.

Read on to learn some of the best quartz countertop varieties that look appealing with any kitchen decor!

Concrete vs Quartz: Why Choose the Latter?

Spending more time at home has inspired a slew of home upgrades- particularly those upgrades that simplify life or with a minimalistic aesthetic. Concrete countertops are at the top of the list when it comes to slick new countertops with a modern look and easy maintenance.

But are they? Upon closer look, homeowners will discover that concrete counters are a lot more delicate than we assume.

The high cost certainly doesn't justify it, nor does it make a significant hardly impact on the resale value of a home. Why would it? It's not considered a luxury countertop material.

But there is one thing we can't argue with- concrete counters look phenomenal! And that's what makes concrete-look quartz so appealing.

Quartz premium surfaces deliver all the maintenance ease and resale value that concrete should have plus all the beauty that concrete does indeed have.

The Best Quartz Countertops that Look Like Concrete

Quartz countertops are an all-around durable material. They can withstand even harsh blows without chipping easily and are unlikely to wear down over time. They also are heat-resistant, fireproof, and have a non-porous surface that prevents staining. This resistance to the elements makes for an attractive and long-lasting alternative to concrete.

Here, we're going to talk about MSI's top three picks for quartz countertop colors and styles that qualify concrete look-alikes. Read on to amp up any interior decor scheme!


One of the best options for quartz that look like concrete is Concerto. This countertop slab is a symphony of grays that range from a soft dove hue to icy-cold shades. The base color is richly warm, but its complexity lies in the charcoal specks scattered across its surface.

If you want a subtle sandy countertop, Concerto is perfect for your space. If you have other decor that uses gray as a focal point, this countertop option will complement your decor scheme nicely. This applies to those who use both mid-century modern and contemporary design schemes as well as those who want to give their space an antique appeal.

This slab comes in a variety of shapes and sizes, so you're sure to find something that fits your kitchen. Not only can you get countertops that are 2 or 3 centimeters thick, but you also can get prefabricated alternatives. This makes installation incredibly easy!

Babylon Gray quartz gives you the best of both worlds that Concerto and Midnight Majesty offer. By this, we mean that it works perfectly with both gray-oriented color schemes and those that incorporate a lot of blacks.

This gorgeous slab features a warm dark gray backdrop, but it is complemented with many other neutral hues. Light grays, browns, and even touches of white make up tiny organic patterns that sprinkle each slab. Because each countertop is made from natural materials, the configurations of these patterns are completely one of a kind.

You can use this style in conjunction with any other MSI slab. Consider using it to waterfall kitchen islands or pair as a backsplash with Midnight Majesty's deep hues.
