Quartz Countertops Trends for 2017

Quartz Countertops Trends for 2017

Quartz has surpassed granite as the countertop material of choice among homeowners. It’s easy to understand why – quartz countertops come in an infinite number of colors; they are highly durable, easy to clean and maintain; they look slick…and the list goes on.

Because quartz countertops are engineered, manufacturers like MSI Stone and Silestone are able to create beautiful solid surfaces with physical properties unlike any other natural stone (granite, marble, limestone,…). When quartz countertops were first introduced in homes, it was obvious that they were engineered / man-made. But nowadays, quartz countertops are made to look like granite and marble without the high maintenance and care associated with both of them.

There have been some notable trends in quartz countertops styles and colors in 2017. Here a few of them you may like to implement in your future kitchen remodeling project.

White quartz countertops

According to MSI, white countertops have continued to be a hot trend in 2017. White quartz countertops are simply astonishing. They look clean. They look sharp, and they are many shades and variations of white available making quartz countertops the easiest material to match any kitchen. The best part of white quartz countertops is that they are easy to clean, non-porous and keep their vibrant look for a lifetime.

 

Color-blocking

Another trend in 2017 for quartz countertops is color-blocking. This relates to sharply contrasting the color of kitchen cabinetry with the color of countertops. This look works great with white kitchen cabinets and deep back-specked quartz, and/or black/dark cabinets with white quartz countertops. By contrasting two elements of a kitchen, it brings attention to both by making them a center piece in the kitchen.

Waterfall countertops

Waterfall countertops are another trend associated with quartz countertops whereas the surface material extends to cover the sides as well. This look works specifically well with kitchen island and boosts a smooth and refined style.

Vein-pattern quartz countertops

The time-defying, beautiful look of white marble in a kitchen is spellbinding. What’s not spellbinding is how much care and maintenance marble countertops require. Homeowners who choose marble for their countertops end up trading cosmetics for functionality. Yes, marble is an instant eye-pleaser…so what if you could have the distinct veining-look pattern and luminescence of marble with quartz countertops? There you have it. The advances in quartz countertops engineering have allowed manufacturers to create this kind of patterns making the vein-pattern quartz countertops and instant winner in 2017.
