Trends come and go, but neutral kitchen design is a classic look that never goes out of style. A kitchen renovation can be a major investment, and it is not something you want to have to do every few years, as the fashions shift and new palettes become all the rage. When you choose a neutral quartz worktop shade, you give yourself the freedom of creative expression because you can bring in colour with cabinetry, accessories, and fixtures or keep the whole kitchen neutral. Soft, muted tones like cream, beige, and grey can provide a foundation on which to build the look of your kitchen, a blank canvas that allows the other elements of your kitchen design to shine. Further, a kitchen grounded in soft neutrals will reflect natural light, creating an airy look.
Coloured Worktops for a Timeless Kitchen Design
Neutral worktops are ideal for creating a peaceful space, giving balance to various other elements in your kitchen, like cabinets, splashbacks, upstands, and appliances. When you keep your worktops neutral, you reduce visual clutter in your kitchen, which makes for a more calming, orderly atmosphere, with a sense of stability and simplicity. Neutrals work well with any décor, whether you prefer traditional, country kitchen, rustic, or modern. You can create the look you want by layering your colours, beginning with neutrals.
The neutrals you pick are a matter of personal choice, but giving some thought to the undertones is important. Neutrals can be cool or warm, light or dark, and you will want to see some samples in your kitchen before you commit to a certain worktop or cabinet. While different neutrals can look very similar in a showroom, seeing them in your kitchen, in context with your flooring and available light, you may gain a very different perspective. Neutrals with cool undertones can be tranquil and calming, while warm, earthy neutrals can create a sense of overall wellbeing. Do not get hung up on one colour, but do some exploring, opening your options to include white, cream, beige, grey, and whatever other neutral you would like to use. White and grey have been trendy for years, but cream is making a comeback, and the beige worktop trend of 2023 includes not just simple beige but also greige, a combination of grey and beige that is the best of both colours. When you are in the market for a neutral worktop, we have some suggestions.
Best Colours for a Neutral Worktop
If you are looking for a beige kitchen worktop, you can’t go wrong with Mountain White Quartz. Reminiscent of granite, this rich, warm, earthy colour choice is timeless and elegant, perfect for any neutral kitchen. It works well with contemporary or rustic design, and the subtle patterns and textures running through it lend it a sense of tranquillity and harmony.
Creamy hues are definitely on point right now, and Ocean Drift Quartz embodies all that is beautiful about this trend. Rich and warm, with white and neutral veins, it has a depth and character that makes it perfect as the starting point for a beautiful kitchen. Because cream is such a soft neutral, it works well in just about any colour palette. Light enough to make a room seem larger and brighter, yet not as stark as pure white, cream complements any décor, from farmhouse to modern and everything in between.
Those looking for a deeper, richer neutral will be wowed by our Latte Quartz. Remarkably smooth and rich, this warm brown quartz creates a stunning look in any kitchen. Deep without being too dark, it has a polished finish that reflects light to keep the room feeling airy. It is a beautiful jumping off point for your kitchen, and when layered with softer neutrals and brighter colours, it can create a statement kitchen you will love for years to come.
Grey is often considered cool, but a warm grey like this Piedra Quartz is a beautiful update to the grey craze we have seen over the past several years. With delicate white veins and subtle glitter flecks no larger than a grain of sand, this is an exquisite engineered stone that is just as elegant as any natural stone. Durable and versatile, it provides a mixture of style and functionality that will serve any kitchen well. Almost a greige, this gorgeous worktop plays well with other neutrals and provides a beautiful base on which to build your colour scheme.
White is a classic, and Glacier White Quartz can provide a timeless and elegant backdrop for your kitchen design. This soft, snowy white quartz has a powdery white marble effect that is not only sophisticated but also clean and minimalist. If you are still in love with the white-on-white trend that has been so popular over the past several years, this is the perfect piece to serve as a base for your pure white kitchen.
