When choosing the right colors for your quartz countertops at home, here are some tips you can keep in mind:

2. Consider the area where you will place it.
Depending on where you will place your countertops, you’d have to consider the color too. For instance, light-colored ones would look great for kitchen countertops or in the bathroom, while darker ones would look amazing in your living area or bedroom.
3. Consider how easy it would be to clean and maintain.
Quartz countertops are generally maintenance-free. Compared to granite which requires sealing every year or so, quartz is a non-porous material that doesn’t have to be sealed anymore after installation. But depending on the color, of course, cleaning requirements differ. For instance, dark ones would be easier to clean compared to light ones where dirt is more obvious. This is one of the reasons why quartz is a top choice for kitchen islands and other furniture in the kitchen.
4. Consider whether your countertops will be placed indoors or outdoors.
