Striking New Quartz Colors Expand Possibilities

June 19, 2015

If you’re remodeling a kitchen or bathroom, most people may automatically think about using granite or tile for a surface. But think again.  Quartz – one of the hardest materials in the world – is versatile, durable, easy to maintain and comes in a wide range of looks. But don’t limit yourself to applications since quartz slabs and tiles can be used on the kitchen and bath, as well as on backsplashes and even fireplace surrounds.

MSI introduces 9 new Q™ Premium Natural Quartz colors. These designs can replicate the many looks of stone, granite, marble and limestone. They include: Carrara Grigio, Montclair White, Perla White, Romano White, Pearl Gray™Babylon Gray, Fossil Taupe, Fossil Brown, and Fossil Gray.

Mix it Up With Neutrals

A colorful mix of tile or new paint on the walls and cabinets can add a selected punch to a neutral countertop and backsplash. Designers generally rely on white, grey and brown to set the tone – and then accessorize with color, texture, fabric and furnishings. MSI’s 9 new quartz colors work seamlessly in modern, traditional or contemporary spaces. 

The range of colors and designs means that you have more flexibility to blend styles. Whether you’re searching for a marble-type look, a dark flavor, or want to incorporate something more neutral, these new colors can bring a new, exciting dynamic to your space.

White Right Now

White is the perfect accent to any kitchen or bathroom’s color palette. Pair white quartz countertops with gleaming floors and stainless steel appliances – or maybe even a high-end range in a signature color (think fire-engine red or turquoise) or a vintage fridge – and white quartz countertops can be the subtle touch to make your kitchen pop. Since quartz is less expensive than marble, but can be manufactured to look like marble, you can invest in other deluxe design details, such as cabinets. The new Carrara Grigio™, Montclair WhitePerla White and Romano White will fit any interior and create a stunning look in any kitchen!

Go for the Gray

The recent Covering’s 2015 show featured cement and concrete as a hot trend (Top 5 Premium Surface Trends Seen at Coverings 2015). As neutrals, our new Pearl Gray™Babylon Gray and Fossil Gray can either add rich granite-like texture or a solid backdrop to a bolder design scheme. If you want to go completely modern, gray quartz is the ticket. This sleek, streamlined look would be perfect in a modernistic kitchen or bath in a mid-Century home.

Brown is Beautiful

Browns in the kitchen and bath have been popular for many years. This year colors include Fossil Taupe and Fossil Brown, consist of subtle detailing that adds a unique fossil texture to the quartz.
