Written by Posted On Tuesday, 13 March 2018 06:36

To achieve a modern and sophisticated colour palette, grey and black are usually the popular choices since they are timeless for interior design. Still, a lot of homeowners may shy away from these dark tones thinking they might make the space too dim and unwelcoming. But surprisingly, grey and black quartz worktops—while looking quite dramatic—can turn out to be a far brighter colour options than you might expect.

Moreover, with their low-maintenance requirements, the price of a quartz worktop is certainly a valuable investment! Have a look at the design ideas below and see for yourself how the dark, striking quartz colours can give your busy kitchen an exciting look.

Light Grey Tone

This grey tone has a low contrast, mid-tone grey with subtle streaks for added depth. Home designers love this versatile surface since it blends excellently with an extensive range of design styles. Take this Scandinavian-inspired kitchen as an example. The grey quartz worktops flawlessly paired with light wood cabinets gave this kitchen a bright and airy feel. The room also features plenty of large windows that allow natural light to flood the entire area and reflecting off of the polished worktop surface.

The High-Gloss Finish

This is another type of mid-tone grey worktop that highlights subtle dark specks. This modern kitchen features multiple stainless steel pieces, including the backsplash, appliances, railing, and even the pendant lights—all of which blends well the grey quartz surface. This engineered worktop also has a very high-gloss finish, comparable to stainless steel. Lastly, in order to add a bit of warmth to this modern white and grey kitchen, wood-look tile grounds was integrated into the design.

Deep and Dark Hue

On the other hand, this worktop has a deep-toned colour in dark graphite. Its dark grey tone is being accentuated with flecks of onyx, iron, and pewter. Since this island worktop is small in size, its dark surface does not dominate the rest of the light-toned elements in this kitchen area. The quartz slab is also fitted on top of a bright white base and is being illuminated by a couple of large pendants, highlighting the worktop for the perfect harmony of subtlety and drama.

Opt For Black

If you want to incorporate a subtle touch of dramatic vibe into your kitchen design, then consider installing a black quartz surface that features a dark shade similar to the night sky, with bits of sparkles for added shine. The glossy finish of this polished worktop makes it ideal for contemporary, chic spaces, particularly when paired with white elements throughout the rest of the design. It's the perfect balance of black and white so it does not darken the space in any way.
