Remodeling your kitchen is a major task that involves making important decisions about the style and functionality of the space. One choice you will need to make is what kind of countertops you want to install. Kitchen countertops need to blend both form and function, providing durability in a style that fits with your kitchen’s overall aesthetic.

How Are Quartz Countertops Made?
You may have heard of the mineral quartz, a naturally occurring substance, which is where this countertop material receives its name. Quartz countertops are manufactured from crushed quartz crystals, resin, and pigments.
What Do Quartz Countertops Look Like?
Available in a wide variety of colors, including black and white, quartz countertops can be chosen to fit with almost any design sensibility. Because of the pigment used in manufacturing quartz countertops, any color can be added to the material, whether natural stone hues like gray and brown, or vibrant colors to make your kitchen stand out.
From solid colors to subtle patterns, quartz kitchen countertops can flawlessly mimic the look of granite, marble, and other materials. Some designs even feature bits of glass or jewel-like particles that create a shimmering appearance.
Darker colors like slate gray are great for modern, open kitchen ideas, while earthy tones pair well with a traditional sensibility. For timeless and chic elegance, you can’t go wrong with a subtle white or off-white countertop, especially when paired with darker cabinets for contrast.
Unlike other stone surfaces, quartz slab countertops feature a non-porous surface designed to prevent damage, such as stains and scratches, making them an excellent fit for a luxury kitchen.
