This is an important consideration, but also one with no ‘one size fits all’ answer. Ideally, you want a shade of granite or quartz that best suits your existing interior design. However, some of our customers have taken the opposite tack in the past, and based the design of the room in question around the County Stone Granite worktop that best caught their eye. Premium quartz or granite countertops make a perfect centrepiece to a room, so designing the rest of a room’s décor around the installation of one is really not a bad idea.
As a rule of thumb, darker colours will make any dust, chips and scratches more obvious, while light colours have a tendency to make spillages more apparent. With the right care, neither of these occurrences should pose any real problems to the appearance of your quartz or granite worktop.
