Modern kitchens are high tech, sophisticated and say it all with sparkling quartz counters.
Today’s kitchens are streamlined, efficient and, well, contemporary. More and more of what we see are hidden dishes and utensils, docking stations and smart appliances. With all this modernization and its clean, clutter-free look, it might seem that personality could be lost between stainless steel and retractable cabinets. This is not so, in fact never has there been a time for new and fresh ways to combine sleek with fun or aesthetic with sparkle. “Sparkly?” you may ask yourself. How in the world can this be applicable when talking about modern? I am not talking about glittery or even flashy. What I am referring to is the sparkle in your countertops, specifically sparkling quartz counters.
Engineered quartz can have a little….
…or a lot of sparkle.
Manufacturers are offering quartz slabs in almost limitless color options with enough flecks, swirls, and random patterning to dazzle the eye and kitchen. Amid the trend for a pared-down kitchen, adding a deep black with gold flecks or a crème quartz counter with white flecks of sparkle makes a statement. I will get to some wonderful colors in a moment. First I would like to talk about the quartz and how it can add some subtle glimmer to your kitchen.
Now I am not a geologist nor do I have much knowledge about the actual process of engineering quartz but I do love quartz. With quartz engineering there can be many variations in how a pattern is made. There can be small or big flecks, which are usually small amounts of recycled glass or metallic flecks added to the mix. These flecks when hit with sunlight or even indoor lighting give off a sparkle. It is beautiful to see and, depending on how bold or delicate your taste, there is a sparkly quartz waiting for you. Many homes today have LED lighting or other forms of lighting made from high-quality materials, which catch the flecks creating a elegant look and feel. It’s just the right blend to have a modern, subtle kitchen with quartz counters that make their own statement. But what does sparkle look like you may be wondering?
