Colors for Quartz Countertop in Bathroom San Diego, CA

If you’re thinking about remodeling your bathrooms, quartz is an excellent choice not just for your countertops but also for the shower walls and tub surrounds.

Part of the appeal of quartz in the bathroom is that engineered stone isn’t porous, thus eliminating the maintenance task of applying fresh sealant. All you need is a specially formulated combination quartz cleaner and polish such as Granite Gold Quartz Brite® to keep it looking like new, and you won’t have to worry about water stains.

Quartz is made of 93 percent crushed stone fragments and resin, and it evokes an almost natural appearance. Its advanced pigments and resins allow manufacturers to come up with some very interesting designs and colors not commonly found in quarries. Here are four quartz colors you may want to consider for your bathroom.

1. White as Fine Marble

You can’t go wrong with quartz surfaces that resemble marble, particularly Carrara and Marmara. Caesarstone, a renowned quartz brand, takes things a bit further with slabs such as Calacatta Nuvo, which looks like white marble but with a veining pattern that looks very exotic. This is a classic look that will never go out of style. Another one to consider from Caesarstone is Bianco Drift, which looks like fresh snow on marble.

2. Lava Ice

Korean electronics giant LG is mostly known for advanced smartphones and television sets, but its Viatera line of quartz is the most evocative in the market because the company is willing to take risks. Viatera Lava Ice is a bold choice for a bathroom. It looks just like its name suggests thanks to its bright red coloring and specks, which resemble a block of lava that has been permanently frozen in time. One of the few places on Earth where you can actually witness such a color is Hawaii, a volcanic archipelago where craters constantly flow lava into the ocean.

3. Crystal Blue and Cobalt Blue

When DuPont acquired Zodiaq Quartz, the brand merged with Corian, the solid surface material that originally competed with engineered stone. When you look at Zodiaq Quartz colors, you realize that DuPont wants to take things in a different direction. The cobalt and crystal blue quartz slabs made by DuPont aren’t like the solid surface materials of a few decades ago, which looked extremely artificial.

4. Onyx-Colored Quartz

As one of the most exotic construction materials, onyx is a natural stone that’s rare, fragile, and simply gorgeous. It’s also difficult to find and very expensive, which is why quartz makes for a more sensible choice. Onyx colors typically range from sandy to amber and from reddish to shiny black. A few quartz brands offer slabs that mimic the look of onyx, and they would be perfect for a stylish bathroom.
