Quartz Countertop Introductions Bring Sleek Style

As consumers begin moving away from granite countertops in favor of other materials, quartz manufacturers are bringing a variety of new products to market. Here are five lovely options.

Statuesque Surfacing

Quartz manufacturer Caesarstone is launching Statuario Nuvo, a new premium design, this fall throughout the U.S. Statuario Nuvo is the brand's interpretation of attractive Statuario marble, bringing a refined finish with impressive dark veining on a white background, complemented by a delicately diffused subsurface vein structure. The new option will be part of the maker's Supernatural series. caesarstone.com.

Through Thick & Thin

Daltile has expanded it One Quartz surfacing line with the addition of a 1.2 cm slab alongside traditional 2 cm and 3 cm sizes. Available in four contemporary, neutral tones the option provides an affordable alternative for tub surrounds, shower walls, and countertop surfaces. The One Quartz collection provides a waterproof seal upon installation, and does not emit VOCs. The 1.2 cm slab is a lighter weight option and, like other products in the line, is available in charcoal gray, warm beige, darker taupe, and light pear gray colorways. daltile.com

Italian Inspiration

Hanwha Surfaces' HanStone Quartz division has added two new colors to its product line, including veining patterns to mimic the look of Carrara marble. The Italian Waves colorway is inspired by Tuscany with rich gray veining and a glossy sheen. Classic Statue features more subtle, wispy veining complemented by contrasting darker-veined undertones in the high-gloss white surface. HanStone is designed with both beauty and durability in mind, and is non-porous and scratch-, stain-, and heat-resistant. The brand has recently expanded distribution in the Southeastern U.S. to help meet nationwide demand. hanstone-quartz.com

Vanities Made Simple

The L.E. Smith Company has added 12 new quartz colors to its VanitEase line of bathroom vanities. The additions bring the number of colors in the program to 24 in total; the other 12 colors compose natural granite options. The VanitEase line is unique in the industry in that it is not limited to sizes that will fit standard or stock cabinets. The selections are highly customizable, while still offering lead times as short as one week. lesmith.com
