How to Choose the Right Quartz Countertop Color for You

Choosing the right quartz countertop color for your kitchen may be easier than you think. You don’t have to be an interior designer to know what you like and what works in your home. By taking a hard look around your kitchen, you’ll be on your way to exploring the best color coordinating possibilities and choosing the perfect quartz countertop color for your kitchen.

Identify undertones

Identifying the undertones in the room is a great place to start in choosing your quartz countertop color. Look around your kitchen to determine the wood tones of your cabinets, and the paint or wallpaper colors on your walls. Depending on your personal color preference, you can choose complementary colors (such as dark cabinets with lighter countertops) or tone-on-tone, which keeps the colors in the same family.

Complementary colors

For homeowners who are looking for an elegant, sophisticated look, choosing a complementary quartz countertop color will be their best bet.

If your cabinets are white, you pretty much have free reign. The kitchen above has a combination of white (on top) and light maple cabinets on the bottom and this gold mosaic tile backsplash (Karma) and ivory colored backsplash (King Ivory) work well here. When you have a kitchen with two different colored cabinets – if your island has cabinets in dark and the rest of your kitchen is white, just make sure your countertop color blends the two colors of your cabinets together. Stainless steel appliances also look great with deeper, saturated colors in your kitchen – whether it’s red or vibrant yellow, stainless steal appliances reflect a lot of light and make the color feel even bolder.

Choosing the right colors

You should select a cabinet color first, and then choose your countertop and flooring colors based on it. The quartz color should contrast the cabinets enough to pop, while pulling in hues of the cabinet color. For example, neutral colored maple cabinets would work well with a mix of light brown, white or gray colored countertops. Dark brown or espresso colored cabinets look great with lighter colored quartz countertops, like light brown, white or ivory with golden varients.

If your cabinets have a red undertone, like mahogany or cherry, then countertops with dark green, green-gray or even a greenish blue-gray hues (as examples), make beautiful complementary colors for your kitchen décor.
