Help picking quartz counters!!
New to this forum but hoping you can help. My husband and I are in the process of choosing new quartz countertops to replace the black laminate ones we have. Our cupboards are oak stained a very dark wine/burgundy colour. Our appliances and cabinet hardware are all stainless steel. Our floor is large beige ceramic tiles with grey swirls in it. Last week we had a countertop consultant come to the house with various samples, and the one that she suggested is zodiaq coarse carrara, which is a white quartz with subtle grey veining in it. We are wanting to go very light with the counters to brighten up an otherwise dark kitchen, and the pics we have seen of dark cabinets paired with white counters are beautiful! The consultant thought the white in the counter would also go well in our space since all of the trim and doors are painted a crisp white. She thought the subtle grey veins would go well with all the stainless steel appliances and fixtures, and the grey swirls in our floor tile. Friends of ours think we should get a beige counter since our floor tile is beige. Are they right? We love the coarse carrara but don't want to spend lots of $$ if this counter will look very off in our kitchen. Ideas???
