6 Trendy Colors for Quartz Countertops

Granite is still the top pick for countertops among homeowners, but quartz is rapidly gaining in popularity. Quartz is a nonporous surface that resists staining without the need to be sealed, and it can also stand up to acidic foods and spills. It is available in a huge array of colors and styles because it’s engineered. This means quartz can be made to resemble other stones, including popular varieties of marble and granite. Care instructions for quartz are generally similar to those for granite and other types of natural stone, which makes them a great option for homeowners. Here are the 6 most popular colors for quartz countertops. 

1. Sparkling Black Quartz

Sparkling Black quartz is popular for its bright sparkles combined with light highlights. This color pairs well with white cabinets for contrast. Unlike some varieties of quartz and granite, Sparkling Black offers a brightly reflective surface that adds depth and light without making a kitchen look stark. 

2. Carrara Grigio Quartz

If you love the timeless look of marble, Carrara Grigio quartz is a good choice. This style of quartz mimics the beautiful appearance of blue-gray Carrara marble while offering the nonporous and acid resistant features of quartz. This is a big perk because marble is not always recommended in kitchens, as exposure to citrus, tomato sauce, vinegar, and other acidic substances can cause stains and damage if the marble is not sealed properly. 

3. Uba Tuba Quartz

Uba Tuba is one of the most popular colors of granite, so it’s no surprise it’s also a top pick for quartz. Because quartz countertops are engineered, they can be made to mimic the color, pattern, and veining of other stones. Uba Tuba is predominantly dark green with flecks of light gold, black, white, and blue with a tight grain pattern and minimal veining. These countertops pair well with light brown, cream, and white cabinets in a kitchen or bathroom. 

4. Coronado Gold Quartz

Coronado quartz is a bright style of quartz that’s predominantly taupe with brilliant gold, ocher, merlot, and rust accents that catch the light and brighten a room. With its golden tone and pebble-shaped stones in varying colors, Coronado quartz pairs well with light brown and cream cabinets. 

5. Calacatta Quartz

Calacatta quartz features soft, clean white with striking blue-gray veining, and it is a good choice if you want your countertops to be the centerpiece of your kitchen or bathroom and appreciate the understated elegance of marble. This luxurious style of quartz pairs well with black and rich brown cabinets for contrast.

6. Calacatta Gold Quartz

Calacatta Gold is similar to Calacatta quartz, but it boasts even more stunning veining and richer colors. This style of quartz mimics the look of Calacatta Gold Marble with a soft white base and brilliant copper, gold, black, and gray veining that dominates the slab. Calacatta Gold is a true show-stopper with unique colors and a veining style you won’t see with other types of stone.

Caring for quartz is similar to caring for granite and other types of natural stone.
