When choosing to update your kitchen, deciding that it needs to be done is typically the easiest part. After that you have to decide on new appliances, color schemes, who to hire, what types of cabinets, countertops and more! That’s why we’ve taken the time to put together a list of design ideas with one of our favorite materials for kitchen countertops: quartz.
Quartz kitchen countertops have plenty of benefits, most of which make it a great material for bathrooms or other rooms as well! Here at Northstar Granite Tops, we provide plenty of options for your new quartz kitchen countertops in Minneapolis!
1. Large Island
If you have a lot of unused space in your kitchen, consider adding a large island! Whether it is used for food prep, mealtime or as a makeshift work desk – a large counter can make a large, industrial feeling kitchen feel intimate and more functional. You can choose to match the color of the island to the rest of your countertops or mix it up and bring in another texture or color!
2. Pop of Color
White quartz can look great up against a beautiful, deep blue – or any other rich color! If you think you may want to change the feel of your kitchen over the years, a white quartz countertop can allow you to repaint cupboards, install new flooring, or purchase new appliances – all while keeping your beautifully elegant quartz kitchen countertops.
3. Dark Counters, Light Cupboards
Alternatively, you could opt for a darker neutral to give your counters more depth. Pairing darker counters with lighter neutrals in your cupboards and floors can really lighten up a space and make your kitchen feel bigger! Neutrals can also provide a timeless elegance, that can be updated with simple decorations no matter the season.
4. Mostly Monochromatic
You could even choose to have your countertops and your cupboards match – this mostly white kitchen has a welcoming feel that is sure to have family and friends ready to sit at the island for a cup of tea or coffee while they stop in for a chat! With a few other neutrals tossed in, your kitchen can utilize natural flowers or fruits for an ever-changing pop of color!
5. Mix of Stones
If you can’t decide between two stone options for your countertops – don’t! You can switch it up and add more dimension to your kitchen by including multiple stone choices for your counters. For example, you could use granite for your main counters and quartz for your island to pull the whole room together! Your options are endless when you choose to switch things up.
6. All Neutrals
Finally, you can create a cozy and welcoming kitchen with simply all neutrals. Blacks, whites, grays and browns can be mixed and matched together to create an intimate space for cooking and creating memories.
