Beyond The Kitchen: Versatile Uses Of Quartz Countertops In Home Design

November 07, 2023


Quartz is one of the most beautiful and durable countertop materials available today. If you’re planning a kitchen remodel, you have probably already considered installing quartz countertops, and for good reason.

This material is naturally resistant to bacteria and other microorganisms and is perfect for the green home. Quartz is stain-resistant, and the variety of available quartz colors means there’s sure to be something that complements every design plan.

Many of the quartz products at MSI contain our exclusive LumaLuxe® technology. LumaLuxe® enhances the way natural and artificial lighting interacts with the material, creating an increased sense of depth, realism, veining, and color. With all the benefits quartz has to offer, why limit its use to just the kitchen? 

Creative Quartz Design Ideas to Customize Your Home

Whether you prefer marble-look quartz with striking veining or the sleek sophistication of a solid color, it’s time to bring quartz out of the kitchen and into the rest of the home.

Showstopping Fireplace

Are you looking for an alternative to granite or tile for your fireplace surround? You can make your fireplace a showstopping feature that brings your living room to life with quartz.

The durability of quartz makes it a natural fit for high-use areas like fireplace surrounds. Choose a highly decorative slab or make a bold statement with a concrete-look quartz like beige Pebble Rock®.

Level Up Your Office

What does your office say about you? Is it a minimalist power center for a modern executive or a cozy home office for a creative entrepreneur? Either way, quartz office counters can help you say it.

An option like our Gray Lagoon quartz creates a neutral look that works with almost any design and provides rest for the eyes in a busy space. If you work better in a more creative space, consider custom office countertops with more vibrant accents. 

A Fine Dining Experience

If you’re the kind of person who can never find exactly what you want on the furniture store floor, a custom-designed Calacatta Laza® quartz dining table might be more your style.

A lacy marble-look quartz like Calacatta Laza® is an elegant backdrop for holiday tablescapes and Saturday pancakes with the kids. Because it naturally resists staining, you can relax when the gang gathers at your place for those big, messy family meals.

Creating your own quartz-topped dining table allows you to have exactly the size and style of table you need to make your home the place where everyone wants to gather.  

Modern Family Bathroom

Consider easy-to-clean Calacatta Izaro quartz for elegant bathroom countertops in the primary, guest, or family bathroom for both its beauty and its durability. The understated design works as well in a Zen-style bathroom retreat as it does in a busy kids’ bathroom. 

Elegantly Surrounded

Using the same style of quartz throughout the house adds a sense of sophistication and makes it look like you hired an expensive designer — even if you didn’t.
