One of the most popular countertop surfaces today, engineered quartz is versatile and durable. Its nearly endless range of color options allows you to visually tie an open kitchen to the surrounding living spaces, as designer Lori Dennis did here with dark blue tones in a kitchen by SoCalContractor.
Don’t underestimate the power of a good laminate countertop. The style factor of laminates has skyrocketed in recent years, and the availability of different patterns and finishes makes them a good option for many looking to redo their countertops. If you want to budget down from engineered quartz, check out Formica’s Silver Quartzite. This stone-look laminate will serve any kitchen well as a strong neutral design force and a major player in making the kitchen a worry-free, fun, and functional place to be.
This powder bathbacksplash features chevron patterned tiles in a deep blue-green color and a shimmery mica wallpaper on side walls. The vanity floats off the floor with an engineered quartz countertop and an elegant vessel sink sitting on top. The mirror is recessed into the tile with a wall mounted faucet. A hand-blown ombre smoke to clear glass pendant brightens the space.
