Quartz worktops are a timeless choice for a kitchen worktop, and thanks to how durable they are, they last a long time. While that is a blessing in terms of longevity, it means that the style you choose is going to be in your kitchen for a long time. In this blog post, we’ll provide you with 5 great ideas you can consider for your kitchen.
1. Darker shades
A dark quartz worktop in a kitchen can look fantastically opulent and can give the most simple of meals a dramatic setting. There are, however, some important considerations regarding a dark kitchen. The first is that using darker shades in your kitchen can suck the colour out of the room, so balance out the dark with some lighter coloured kitchen tiles. The second is that a dark quartz countertop can hide stains a lot easier, but don’t let this put you off cleaning it – as the cleaner it is, the more dazzling the shine is under the kitchen lights.
2. Brilliant white
One of the best things about quartz is that it looks great in both black and white. Brilliant white kitchen countertops like our Arctic White Quartz, when combined with some bespoke kitchen fittings, can really make a kitchen glow. The great thing about white is that it goes well with just about anything. Try combining white quartz with teal coloured tiles for an interesting pastel two-tone effect, or with even more white to create a spacious, clean feel to the space.
3. Make the most of mirror detailing
A lot of our best kitchen worktops here at Stone Genie have flecks of mirror detailing, and this style can have a dazzling effect under some high-powered halogen lighting. Making the most of this feature is simple – just know how to clean your kitchen worktop. A clean worktop is a shiny worktop, and luckily, cleaning a quartz worktop is quite simple – only requiring a mild cleaner and a damp microfiber cloth.
4. Consider a kitchen island
If you’re working with a large space, then consider investing in a kitchen island. These can look especially good in an open plan living space alongside a living area. A quartz kitchen island can be the centrepiece of family life, when combined with a few stools to create a breakfast bar. Using such a long-lasting material such as quartz can mean that your kitchen island can become a storied piece of furniture, instilled with memories of family life.
5. Combine with wood
If your kitchen is within a vintage cottage and you’re looking to update your space without wholly removing traditional wooden cabinetry, then Stone Genie is the company for you. We make sure that the heavy stone can be held up by your kitchen cabinets, as we install supports if needed to prop up the work surface. We also think that any colour of quartz can look great alongside wood, as one of the key characteristics of quartz is that it works well in any kind of kitchen.
