Earlier this year, over 300 National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA) members-designers from the United States and Canada responded to NKBA’s annual design trends survey. In the survey, respondents were asked to report the materials, product types, and design styles they specified over the final three months of 2012. The results are in and it appears that quartz countertops are making a comeback: “While the use of quartz finishes was in slight decline last year, it has surfaced as a clear trendsetter this year .” ~ NKBA
If you’re considering a kitchen or bath renovation this fall, chances are choosing a new countertop is on you’re to-do list.
Monarch Kitchen and Bath Centre designers often recommend quartz countertops to our clients. Stunning and exceptionally versatile, quartz is low-maintenance, resistant to stains and comes in a variety of textures, tones and colours.
The Viatera line of quartz countertops from LG Hausys, for example, is available in four colour collections. Drop by our showroom today to see them first-hand.
Terracota (warm earthen tones of beiges, browns and rust)
Woodlands (inspired by the colours and tones of the forest)
Urban Chic (an eclectic mix of colours that are both fresh and inviting)
International (bold coloured patterns, some with chips of glass, mirror and metal)
