The most beautiful kitchens aren’t the stark, white rooms that you’ve seen in the past. Today’s design experts recommend a mixture of materials of impeccable quality, with elegant texture and coloring for a balanced, interesting space. Quartz custom countertops are some of the best surfaces for any kitchen because they not only meet all of the above criteria, they’re also hardy and long-lasting.

Quartz countertops are extremely strong and can resemble virtually anything, from Italian white marble countertops to rich, earthy quartzite countertops. Quartz can even be engineered in virtually every natural granite countertops color, from red to green, and everything between, matching the depth and texture in genuine stone.

But some of the best ways to design quartz countertops are to pair them with complementary materials, like a natural stone backsplash, flooring, and walls.

Here are some tips for creating a flawless kitchen with perfectly paired natural stone and quartz.

Calacatta Quartz with Black Slate

Black slate is a sleek and masculine stone that has a deep, earthy texture but also a hint of metallic flair. It’s a durable material for kitchen backsplash and flooring.

Pair it with beautiful white Calacatta quartz, which resembles elegant marble. The contrast of rough and earthy slate with milky, white quartz will make your kitchen look well-balanced and stylish.

Also, the gentle dark gray veins in the quartz will match perfectly with the dark nature of the slate. This kitchen is masculine and modern, and yet the quartz is designed with just enough smooth femininity to create a balanced effect.

Carrara Marmi Quartz with Luxe Mosaic

Stone mosaic tiles have a beautiful Mediterranean look, with their unique texture and picturesque arrangement. It’s a perfect pairing on the wall above countertops made with Carrara quartz, which resembles highly sought-after, rare Carrara marble. White with just enough texture of black and grey in deeply complex veins, this look is incredibly stylish in modern kitchens. The pairing of quartz with stone mosaic backsplash will create a perfect balance of modern Italian design with Old World charm and a more traditional, homey look. This pairing is great for anyone who wants to make their kitchens look a little homier.

Lagos Azul Quartz with Crema Marble

Deep, chocolate brown and sophisticated, Lagos Azul quartz resembles a beautiful natural stone and has a refined, simple quality. It looks absolutely flawless when paired with Crema Marfil marble flooring and backsplash. This combination is detailed, unique, and brings out the simple, earthy textures in each type of stone. This pairing will also make the quartz look fresh from the quarry as if it’s true stone.

Almond Roca Quartz with Arabescato Carrara Marble

Creamy and comforting Almond Roca quartz looks like some of the foods that you enjoy, like coffee and fresh, buttery pastries. When paired with Arabescato Carrara marble, the look is elevated to a supreme style that everyone will envy. When cut into subway tiles and placed on a wall, this marble will make your kitchen look modern and sophisticated, a flawless pairing with the quartz’s comforting and traditional look. Today’s kitchens are about balancing different forms and personalities into a cohesive whole, and this combination is indicative of that balance between comfort and restraint that will make your kitchen presentable but also enjoyable for daily use.
