10 Classic Quartz Colours For Kitchen Tops
Redecorating a kitchen isn’t an easy or quick task, it needs planning, thought, care, and plenty of attention in order to get it right. If you don’t do any of these, even just one, then you are going to be running the risk of missing out a very important detail, and then you will end up replacing something earlier than you had planned. Time consuming and money consuming – two things you don’t need!
If you opt for classic quartz then you are making a long lasting choice, because this is a very strong stone, very durable, and it also doesn’t need any maintenance after the initial installation. On top of this, quartz is the only natural stone which is non-porous, therefore it doesn’t absorb water, which leads to cracks and problems, and it also doesn’t harbour nasty germs, which can cause illness.
Overall, classic quartz stone is a fantastic option to go for, with very little the way of downside.
One area you may struggle with however is which colour to pick, simply because there are so many. In every single static colour you will find many shades and designs, and it can be hard to narrow it down. To help you in your search, here are ten standard colours which you might like to think about, with a little advice in each about the types of shades and finishes that are available.
- Black – Monochrome is a design which is never going to go out of fashion, but some people tend to be a little scared of the harshness of this dark colour. If you pick a lighter shade of black, you can create a warmer space, and you simply need to be careful what you pair it with. If you have a small kitchen, a dark décor will only make it look smaller, but if you pair it with a lighter shade, you could create the illusion of space.
- Grey – Some people are equally as scared as grey, because they have it in their head as a cold, clinical colour. This isn’t true, because if you can pair a light grey with a luxurious cream, you can create a really warm and classy space. If you do want a very modern twist however, dark grey is a good go-to.
- White – This is a classic quartz colour which surprisingly is available in many different shades! White is never just white, and you can go for off-white if you want to veer a little off target, or pair it with a fleck of silver for a little sparkle.
- Cream – For those who are a little worried about the starkness of white, cream is a great source of middle ground, and it can look fantastically luxurious and sophisticated when paired with the right shade. How about a latte and cream colour scheme? Wonderful!
- Beige – This is a colour which has countless shades under its original umbrella. Beige is a middle ground source between darker shades and lighter ones, and as such, it is extremely popular. If you want to go for a traditional, country kitchen kind of vibe, beige is the perfect choice.
- Brown – Again, you can choose a dark brown or a light one, perhaps even a middle shade, but it adds warmth, especially when you pair it with cream or white.
- Coffee colours – Here we are talking about the latte, cappuccino, and espresso shades, which all have different intensities within them. For large kitchens you could go darker, so espresso is a good one, but for smaller kitchens, create a sense of space by going for something light and rich, such as latte.
- Blue – For a calming appearance to your kitchen, where things can sometimes get a little tense, blue is a fantastic choice. Again, choose from a huge range of shades, but go for a lighter shade, such as a duck egg colour, for smaller spaces.
- Green – This is equally as calming as blue, but a little less harsh in some circumstances. Pairing a light green with speckles within it, with a white or cream cabinet is instantly luxurious and creates that space illusion again.
- Red – Finally we have a choice you may not have thought of – red. Go for a burgundy shade with a few earthy flecks with it, such as brown or beige, and you will cut down on the ‘out there’ element.
