6 Stunning New Quartz Countertop Colors To Satisfy Any SpaceOctober 25, 2022
Is a new countertop in your near future? If you've been checking out the home improvement stores and reading up on the latest trends, you've seen that quartz is at the top of the list of best countertop materials. In addition, quartz countertop colors and advantages put it neck-and-neck with granite.
Whether you want a kitchen, bathroom, or other countertop resurfaced, quartz may be the material you've been looking for. It comes in a slab form, like granite and marble, but without the disadvantages of these expensive materials.
Granite and marble are gorgeous, elegant, and timeless, but they're also pricey and hard to repair if damaged. So if classic and sophisticated or warm and welcoming is your goal, you'll love today's trending styles from MSI: durable, easy-care quartz that looks like marble!
Why Quartz is All the Interior Design Rage
Quartz has quickly come out on top in the quartz vs. granite or marble debate. It's easy to see why, between the price point and the new and varied quartz countertop colors.
As countertop materials go, the main focus is, of course, durability. Your countertop will be well-used, no matter where it is. But wouldn't it be amazing if that durable material came with an aesthetically pleasing polished finish and didn't break the bank?
Enter quartz. It does all this and more, which is why all the interior designers are raging about it. Its varied color schemes complement everything from natural wood cabinets and white cabinets to stainless steel appliances. And with MSI's countertop visualizer tool, you can play around with your choices to find the ideal edge profile look without leaving your home.
Why Go Quartz Instead of Marble?
When it comes to your kitchen design, you don't want to settle for anything less than what you love. The kitchen is easily the heart of the home, and you're in there daily.
We wouldn't blame you if you had your heart set on marble. This gorgeous material has many advantages, such as its rich look and impressive veining designs. Marble surfaces can make a room look more expensive, although studies are inconclusive about whether it adds value to your home or not.
With regular upkeep, marble countertops will last for years, but you do have to ensure you're maintaining and sealing them.
However, marble does have some significant disadvantages. For one thing, it's porous, so it stains easily, and if you get anything acidic on it, it will stain permanently. This is why regularly sealing those countertops is so vital.
Marble also etches easily, scratching where any sealant or polish has faded. Considering the cost you'll be paying for these countertops, you'll want to ensure they last as long as possible by keeping up with the maintenance.
Six Marble Looks With a Quartz Countertop
For the modern kitchen remodel, marble is simply too high-maintenance and expensive. Although renovations always add to a home's value, using marble might not net you the return on your investment you were hoping to achieve.
But you don't have to lose the look of this material entirely to keep your remodel cost-effective and boost your home's value. Instead, opt for engineered quartz in your preferred color palette. Here are six quartz styles that look like marble counters but don't have the downfalls that go with them.
1. Calacatta Abezzo
