Quartz continues to grow in popularity as a kitchen countertop material that’s both practical and beautiful. If you’re considering choosing quartz for your kitchen design, you won’t regret it. Let’s look at the range of styles quartz has to offer, so you can find the perfect quartz countertops for your kitchen.

What is Quartz?

At Arizona Tile, you’ll find a wide range of colors and patterns of beautiful Della Terra® Quartz. Each slab consists of up to 94% quartz, one of the hardest minerals in nature—with resins and pigments added to create stunning designs. This “engineered stone” is extremely durable and easy to clean, making it a perfect choice for countertops that are as low-maintenance as they are gorgeous.

White Quartz

White kitchen designs—and especially white countertops—continue to be a rising trend with homeowners. Light, fresh and chic, white counters have a luxurious quality and sleek, clean look. If you’re looking for white quartz countertops for your kitchen, you’ll have plenty of options to choose from.

Many quartz slabs have a white background, ranging from the bright polished white of our aptly named Absolute White to Apollo’s warmer, ivory tone. You’ll also find gorgeous white quartz that features delicate grey patterning or grains, including Biancone and Frost-R. A quartz with grey details is perfect for complementing any grey surfaces in your kitchen, such as cabinets, walls or flooring.

Marble-Look Quartz

Quartz countertops that look like marble are a chic way to achieve that authentic natural stone look without as much maintenance. Many of our varieties of quartz are designed to emulate the appearance of real marble. From the delicate, soft pattern of Denali-N to the bold, dramatic veining of Calacatta Jubilee, there are plenty of different ways to mimic your favorite marble with quartz countertops.

Grey & Black Quartz

Quartz that’s predominantly grey or black in color can be used to add contrast to a white kitchen or bring further dimension to a shades-of-grey design. When choosing grey quartz to complement grey cabinets or a grey backsplash, pay careful attention to the color temperature—you’ll want to match cool tones with other cool tones and warm with warm to ensure visual cohesion.

Crest and Concrete Grey Honed are two beautiful warm grey quartz options. For a cooler toned quartz slab, consider Metropolis Dark.

Black quartz gives you the opportunity to go bold with your countertops. A rich, dark quartz like Montenegro, which features striking white veining akin to marble, is sure to be a standout in your kitchen.

Beige Quartz

Earth toned kitchens are in style, with more homeowners looking for the warmth and rustic touch of colors like beige, tan and brown in their kitchens. Quartz, as it happens, is not just available in white and grey varieties. You’ll also find a range of earth tones to bring warm hues and natural style to your kitchen. From the softness of Ivory White to the subtlety of Gemstone Beige-N, these quartz slabs are perfect for adding those sandy, greige tones to your space.
