We talk a lot about quartz in these parts — then again, we are Bad Lizard Granite & Quartz for a reason. Quartz countertops come in a wide range of color options and patterns. From sleek and modern to a more natural appeal, it can be challenging to make the best decision. What’s best for me? What’s my style? Is it for a kitchen or bathroom? Read on to get our best tips for choosing the perfect quartz countertop colors for your home.
WHAT IS QUARTZ?
Quartz countertops are a form of engineered stone composed of ground-up stone particles bound with resins. As a result, quartz comes in a wide range of colors that natural stones may not have. In addition, because it is engineered, quartz is a highly durable and hardy surface material. Another excellent factor about quartz is its antimicrobial material, which means it won’t hold germs, odors, and even stains.

CHOOSING THE PERFECT QUARTZ COUNTERTOP COLORS
Some of the most popular quartz countertop colors come in neutral shades like white, black, beige, gray, and brown — but if neutrals are not your thing, quartz comes in many fun colors too!
You may be feeling a little overwhelmed at the prospect of choosing the right colors for your new quartz countertops. But bear with us for a second — it’s easier than you think. Here are a few things to keep in mind:
- What’s the mood of your room? What are you trying to convey? The motif of your space will be a key differentiating factor when choosing a quartz countertop color.
- Think about the colors of your floors, walls, and cabinets. You’ll want to choose a countertop color that draws out the best in everything — this will leave your kitchen with a nice pop.
- Seek to complement your countertops with the space rather than distract from them.

Viewing slabs in person is an excellent opportunity to learn more about what you love. In addition, it is always better to view slabs in person to grasp the color and pattern throughout the slab, which is sometimes difficult to determine when evaluating a small sample.
THINK ABOUT LIGHTING WHEN CHOOSING QUARTZ COUNTERTOP COLORS
Lighting can make or break a project. Too dark? It may be hard to see everything. Too bright? You might lose the colorful hues of the room.
Lighting can be broken down into warm and cool tones. These tones affect color, which means your quartz countertops may take a different shade under natural light during the day and artificial light during the night. Having a sample in hand can help finalize your decision.
WAIT TO ACCESSORIZE QUARTZ COUNTERTOPS
Your style influences everything, not the least of which is color. Naturally, you might be tempted to add your accessories to the project early, but it should be the last step you take.
The danger in accessorizing early is that you allow your present taste to determine your long-term color scheme. As the years go by and seasons change, so will your style. Picking the colors first in a neutral environment will allow your taste to grow with it.
