Quartz kitchen islands are both functional and beautiful.
Simple tables and freestanding surfaces have been used in kitchens recorded as far back as Victorian England. More modern-day islands that we see today did not get their start until the 1950s. The mid-century housing boom brought new construction methods and materials, which gave rise to more compact appliances and open floor plans. With the newly expanded space, the kitchen island was born. With the kitchen becoming an integral part of home and social activity, it became important to have functionality and aesthetic appeal. Now kitchen islands are made with the original purpose in mind with many new and wonderful features: wine coolers, raised stools and secondary sinks. Another facet to the kitchen island is the actual counter on top and that’s where we come in. Quartz, a remarkable engineered stone, is a perfect fit. Quartz kitchen islands give you beauty, durability, and a way to make a statement.
When it comes to a kitchen island there are many sizes, styles, and even shapes to choose from. It doesn’t matter how big or small your space is. From a roll out island to a full sized island, you can change your kitchen’s look and feel.
Adding quartz for the counter is a great way to:
- Bring the colors of your existing counters or backsplash together.
- Enhance the colors of your walls, floors, and cabinetry in your kitchen and adjoining rooms.
- Make it fun by choosing a brighter or richer island color to make it pop in a more neutral themed space.
- Have an extra meal prepping space for meals because quartz is antimicrobial and durable.
Kitchen islands today often integrate colors, materials, and design flourishes that are different from those of the surrounding wall cabinets, making them the focal point of the space. What better way than to add some quartz to your kitchen island. There are so many colors and patterns to choose from that finding the right color will be easy.
