Quartz is one of the most popular natural stones for countertops in the bathroom, bedroom, in a wet bar or anywhere else in the home. Quartz countertops do have some basic maintenance requirements, but with just routine care, they will continue to look like new in a Minneapolis home for decades to come.
One factor that draws many homeowners building a custom home or renovating their existing home to quartz is the variety of colors and patterns that are in this countertop option.
The color and pattern options possible due to the manufacturing process used with these countertops. Unlike marble or granite that is cut from a slab, quartz is made from ground aggregate quartz mixed with resin. This proportion is approximately 95% quartz to 5% resin with different color combinations of the quartz and color in the resin creating rich colors and vibrant, eye-catching designs.
To design with quartz countertops, a few basic design tips can be helpful in creating the look in your home that will be the ideal match for the rest of the room’s décor.
The vibrant, striking and impossible to miss colors and options in some of the options in quartz countertops should be chosen as the central focus in the room. In other words, the flooring, cabinets, window treatments and the other elements in the kitchen will be more neutral in color, allowing the countertops to become the focus.
Match Your Style
As these are a lifetime investment in your Minneapolis home so look for a design, particularly if you are choosing a dramatic look, that is your style. This will ensure if you want to change the colors or the décor of the room, the countertops will continue to be a great match and will blend in with the new décor.
