The Best Material for Matching Colour

So many factors go into your vision of a home renovation. Along with all the considerations that come with construction and design come finite details of home décor and colour. Trends in kitchens come and go, but the classics remain and your choice in kitchen countertops factor largely in ultimately creating the kitchen of your dreams. For quartz kitchen countertops, Brampton and surrounding areas offer many options. Let's review some and outline some advantages and disadvantages of kitchen countertop options with the idea of colour in mind.


Marble is a natural stone and because of this fact it produces stunning natural colours and patterns. The veining in marble or "beauty marks,” are one-of-a-kind and can serve to set off a kitchen or countertop replacement in a unique way. And because many marble options come in complementary shades of white, black and gray, they make decorating around very forgiving. While some of the more exotic styles of marble can be quite expensive, homeowners can save on marble countertops by going with the more common Carrera. Which is quite reasonable and accessible in even the most modest of homeowner budgets.


Granite is another naturally-occurring stone. Like marble, Mother Nature creates its unique veining and patterns under immense pressure and heat. For many of us, this is largely why we like natural stone. But it's also not the most forgiving. No two slabs are identical so for larger designs with many seams, matching veining and patterns can be challenging. For people with heavily patterned décor this may add a whole other layer they would rather not deal with. They may instead prefer the control and customized nature of a manufactured stone.


Quartz is a manufactured stone. Like marble and granite it is made using heat and pressure to create beautiful kitchen countertops and bathroom countertops. Made primarily of crushed quartz (93%) and added resin (10%), the process of manufacturing quartz involves adding a colourant. For homeowners with very specific colours in their home, quartz provides total control. Almost any colour is attainable with quartz and even the most intricate of kitchen countertop ideas can be matched seamlessly for a clean unified look.


Another manufactured stone that provides excellent stain, heat and scuff resistance. It is composed of acrylic polymer and alumina trihydrate. Corian has the ability to conform into many shapes through thermoforming. For projects that require unique countertop shapes and seamless joints, this option is preferred. And like quartz, it comes in limitless colours, so matching any colour motif is easily achieved.

Personal Choice

Quartz kitchen countertops in Brampton offer many options. But cost, maintenance and durability aside, deciding on what kind of countertop you want based on colour is a personal choice. Natural or manufactured stone can accommodate virtually any kitchen colour scheme. That's why it's important to seek the advice of a company that can walk you through all your options and guide you in your quest to find the best kitchen countertops for you.
