love the look of natural stone counters minus the stone

Quartz continues its takeover of all things countertop. It offers strength and durability and requires much less maintenance than its natural stone counterparts. But what if you really love the look of marble or granite? Increasingly, quartz manufacturers are offering the look of natural stone counters minus the stone.

Wilsonart is one such manufacturer. Their most recent line of nature-inspired quartz surfacing more closely resembles natural stone.

“These new designs capture the same natural beauty of granite and marble but with a refined, artistic flawlessness that works equally well in both residential and commercial environments.”

Paul Mikulencak, senior product designer at Wilsonart

The ten new designs tap into the colour trends of warm and cool whites, greys, and neutrals, but also take advantage of the resurgence of classic black stone.
