If you are in the market for new countertops, quartz is an excellent choice because it is a non-porous material that is manufactured and comes in many colors and patterns. Quartz has been popular for many years, and while some of the same looks will continue, the following are trends that are currently popular:
- Unique Patterns. Because quartz is manufactured using a combination of natural stone and some other materials, it is relatively easy to create exactly what a customer is looking for as far as color and pattern. One of the newer trends is the inclusion of unique lines and veins. Some manufacturers are even opting to produce quartz that looks very similar to marble and has a lower price tag. Current design trends and décor look fabulous against quartz that has a unique texture.
- Matte Finish. Another popular new finish is the look of leather. This finish has a matte appearance rather than the traditional shiny quartz of yesteryear. Not only does the leather finish keep the natural stone color, but it also disguises fingerprints and water spots and is a superior finish for kitchens and bathrooms in a busy household.
- Neutral Colors. Keeping with the recent trend of muted colors, quartz countertops in beige, black, white and other neutral tones have become increasingly popular. This color pallet helps to open up any kitchen space, especially when paired with large windows that bring in a lot of natural light.
- Backsplash. Quartz countertops make for a beautiful, modern kitchen, and some homeowners are opting for a tall backsplash that extends to the ceiling instead of installing cabinets.
