The color options and patterns for your quartz countertops are nearly endless, so you may need some help finding the best design for your home.

Tips for Choosing Quartz Countertop Colors

With a myriad of color options and patterns, it can be hard to narrow down your choice. Here are a few considerations to factor when choosing your quartz countertops.

  • Stick with neutral colors: although there are countless colors and patterns available for your quartz countertops, it’s safer to stay away from trendy options and stick with neutral colors that will last the test of time.
  • Compliment your cabinets: choose a countertop color that matches your current space and decide if you want your countertops to be focal points, in which case, you’ll want to select a color that stands out.
  • Perform lighting tests: request quartz samples from your designer so you can perform lighting tests in your home. This will allow you to see how the colors and patterns look under the lights and natural light in your home.

Quartz Countertop FAQs

Because quartz is engineered, it comes in nearly an endless array of colors and patterns. The most common quartz countertop colors include brown, grey, white, beige, and black. They can also be designed with veining to mimic the look of marble. You can also choose different finishes for your quartz countertops, including glossy and honed. Some finishes are also known as suede, concrete, or antiqued. Interested in a specific finish that we haven’t listed? Get in touch and we’ll help out!

Quartz comes in two main finishes: honed or polished. Honed quartz is a matte finish made by refining the slab with diamond abrasives. The result is a smooth and ‘leathery’ feel with a non-reflective appearance. Though polished quartz is more common, honed options can create a unique and elegant appearance.

Both honed and polished quartz are excellent options, so it comes down to personal preference. If you prefer a soft and smooth texture with minimal light reflection, then honed is the best choice for you. However, if you like a shinier look with a glossy finish, then polished is the option to go with.
