Looking for something a bit different from popular white countertops? Grey quartz counters—especially warmer grey tones—are a rising trend, with options that resemble granite, concrete and more. Choose from flecked patterns, solid grey slabs or pale grey veined looks to give your kitchen a modern aesthetic. With varieties like Hail Grey, Pro Cloud and Elegance Ash, you can have grey countertops that are practical, versatile and on-trend.

For a softer, contemporary look with a little less shine, some homeowners prefer a honed quartz for their kitchens. Honed slabs are made with a matte finish instead of the glossy and polished surface of traditional countertops. This can bring a more natural and relaxed aesthetic to the space, and reduces the reflectiveness that bright kitchen lights can create. A popular choice for the softer, warmer design aesthetic we’re seeing in 2020, honed quartz like Hail Grey Honed and Absolute White Honed is chic and trendy.

2020 kitchen design trends are moving away from stark, cool palettes toward warmer aesthetics. With this trend, warm, soft and earthy quartz colors are rising in popularity, including cream, greige and tan. These countertop colors are perfect for giving your space a warm and welcoming update. If you like warm neutral tones, consider Opaline Satin, Ivory White Honed or Elegance Nev.
