Beige is the ultimate neutral. A warm, unassuming color, beige works well with many different accents and in many different settings. But while beige may be neutral, it doesn’t have to be boring. It’s possible for a beige countertop to contain many hues and shades that can bring richness and warmth to a room.
Beige quartz countertops offer even more; a consistency of color and pattern that are unmatched by other materials. Beige is at its best when its quiet color gets the chance to shine. Quartz countertops let it do just that by offering the perfect combination of shades that can complement any room.
The Benefits of Quartz
There are many materials on the market for countertops, and many of them are available in beige. But, only quartz countertops combine high style with durability and low maintenance care.
Quartz countertops are made of more than 90% natural quartz along with resins and pigments. This offers several advantages over other materials.
First, natural quartz is one of the most durable substances in common use. The material itself is non-porous, highly durable and resistant to staining, scratching, and chipping. It doesn’t require sealing or special cleansers, and it keeps its good looks year after year.
The fact that quartz is manufactured also means good news for its appearance. Natural stones like granite have a lot of variation - a beige countertop could have other random colors or tones mixed in that can ruin the look of the kitchen. The manufacturing process of quartz creates consistency in the color and pattern.
This means that from the minute you take a look at a sample to the final installation, you know what you’re getting. You can more easily coordinate your cabinet, flooring, and backsplash colors and finishes to your countertop, creating a beautiful, rich display.
Beige Quartz Countertop Design Ideas
Beige is such a light neutral that it’s important to use it in the right combination of other colors and materials. It can be a backdrop, a complement to the other colors or accents in the space. Or, beige can set the stage for a tone-on-tone design that has quiet beauty and a lot of depth. If you’re looking for ways to incorporate a beige quartz countertop into your kitchen or bathroom design, take a look at these design ideas.
1. Contemporary Sleekness
Many people think that in order to have a contemporary kitchen, it also needs to be cold or stark in color. But, beige quartz countertops paired with a rich brown cabinet can create a contemporary, sleek design that’s still welcoming and warm. Nothing about this kitchen is stark or boring, and the beige countertops are the ideal complement.
2. Rich Accents
Beige quartz countertops come in many different styles. This includes colors like Ivory Wave, which have a light beige background, but with different tones included as veins and accent. This rich color has lighter, white flecks, as well as darker brown flecks and a rich chocolate, yet subtle vein. This will let you pick up the darker and lighter tones for accents in the room, such as a rich chocolate accent wall and a light-colored cabinet.
3. Transitional Design
If contemporary designs often use solid colored countertops, and more traditional designs use marble-look countertops, it’s the transitional spaces that use colors more like Serengeti to accomplish their goals. This color not only has a lot of colors to choose from for accents, it’s color flecks also let the countertop become a more harmonious part of the design. The pattern is more lively, letting you make it a focal point, without the need of bold colors or accents in the room.
4. Quiet Richness
For those that love the classic look of some of the warmer marbles like Botticino or Crema Marfil, consider taking a look at Serenity. This warm-colored quartz is the ideal soft backdrop for spaces that need a quiet harmony in their design. The light background and rich, but sparse vein make this a less busy countertop - perfect for breakfast bars, islands, and any area you want to create an oasis of calm in a busy space.
5. Transitional Highlight
There are many ways to create a transitional design. One method combines disparate elements that have one or two things in common. An open floor plan and contemporary style cabinets set the overall tone for the design. The marble-look beige countertop makes the design more transitional in style, while the color of the vein picks up the lighter tones in the flooring and creates a cohesive look.
6. Subtle Specks
If you’re not wild about marble-look countertops, but don’t want a sold color either, countertops like Kindred are the perfect touch. This beige quartz countertop is light enough to be unassuming and to fit in with a wide variety of styles and designs. But, it’s not a solid color so it has plenty of interest. The color is introduced through a series of small speckles, rather than veins or larger color patterns, so it’s still quiet and able to fit in well with more contemporary to transitional style designs.
7.Quiet Focal Point
Many people think that to make a countertop the focal point of the design, it needs to be bright or bold in color. But when the rest of the room features a lot of dark woodwork, sometimes what’s needed is a lighter touch. This Indian Pearl countertop picks up the color of the woodwork in its accents, but keeps the overall tone light. That allows the countertop to blend in with the rest of the room, while preventing the area from becoming too dark.
8. A Cooler Touch
Sometimes when you have a lot of cool tones in one room, a really warm beige isn’t necessarily going to hit the right note. In those cases, it’s actually best to lean more toward a countertop with a taupe tone than a really warm beige.
This Empress countertop is just a hair warmer than the rest of the room, which helps create a more welcoming atmosphere in the bathroom, but it isn’t so warm or dark that it overpowers the space. This kind of cohesive look adds just the right amount of depth to an otherwise cold room.
Warm Up Your Countertops with Beige Quartz
Beige may not sound like the most exciting color in the world, but it’s actually a warm, rich tone that can blend in with many styles and designs. If you’re looking for a countertop that will be as durable as it is warm and inviting, consider taking a closer look at a beige quartz countertop for your home.
