There are so many things to consider when choosing your quartz counter tops. Cabinet color, flooring choice, wall color, appliances, you get it. Quartz is a BIG investment and you need to be sure you get it right. These 5 choices are the ones I have found after doing nearly 200 kitchens since quartz has taken over the market are perfect everytime!
Cambria Quartz, “Berwyn”( pictured above) is a pefect neutral with a little bit of silver bling! The pattern mimics a granite rather than a true quartz and is the perfect neutral tone. Not too warm, not too cool. This selection looks stunning with any flooring choice and is simply gorgeous on every cabinet color I have used it on! The subtle silver glitter in it perks up any space and not a lot of additional bling is needed but if you are a “more is more” person you can go ahead and it will not disappoint.
Three of my favorites come from Pompeii Quartz. I like Pompeii because most of their colors are also available in half slabs as well which sometimes can make the difference between being able to afford to splurge not. If you have a project that does not require a full slab or even a “slab and a half” then the waste from having to purchase an entire slab can make that project cost a lot more.
Pompeii White Lightning
“White Lightning”– a brilliant white base with fine and sharp veining that resembles lighting bolts and looks great on anything you put it on. Most of my clients that gravitate towards this one also love more contemporary design and appreciate the gentle drama of this pattern.
Pompeii Bianco Napoli
“Bianco Napoli”– The best version of cararra marble I have seen in quartz. The base color is not quite as bright white as the white lighting but still a lovely white. The veining is much softer but still has a good amount of drama.
“Statuario”– Very closely resembles the Bianco Napoli but also contains a mix of warm and cool veining. This looks great on all cabinet colors but lends itself really well to spaces with warm wood tones or warm neutrals.
Last but not least is Wilsonart’s “Lucca”. It has of a light gray/white base and very large veining throughout. My favorite slabs will also have a touch of gold in the veining bringing a nice mix of warm and cool tones. This mix is what brings perfection to any space and will give you a lot of versatilty both with the selections you are making now and the ones you may want to make in the future. Closely resembles Calacatta marble.
