Grey Quartz Worktops for Kitchens
Grey quartz kitchen worktops offer a huge range of appealing options. If black or white is too much of a design statement, grey offers a more subtle, softer look. We offer nearly 50 shades of grey quartz, so you can be sure of finding a stone that will work perfectly for your kitchen.
As with all quartz, grey worktops are very easy to clean and maintain, because the non-porous surface won’t stain. The stone is also very hygienic and doesn’t harbour germs and bacteria. Because it is so hard, quartz is hugely long-lived and durable too.
Grey quartz kitchen worktop – what are the choices?
Quartz is flawlessly smooth, and that is what gives quartz worktops such a sleek, elegant look in all colours, including grey. There are many shades of grey to choose from, starting with off-whites through to dark options. That opens the door on a range of appealing design possibilities.
At County Stone we are very particular about the quality of quartz, and we only work with top quality suppliers including namely Silestone, Arenastone, Caesarstone, Samsung Radianz and Compac. When you order a kitchen worktop from us, you can rely on top quality materials, as well as top quality preparation and fitting. You can see our precision cutting equipment in action here.
Quartz worktops in solid greys
Solid grey quartz worktops are simple and unfussy. They make a great core for your kitchen, and work well with clean lines and a lack of clutter. Alternatively, you can use solid greys as a background for colourful and decorative elements, from walls to cupboard units, kitchen appliances and accessories.
Silestone’s Gris Expo is a popular mid-grey choice, as is darker Silestone Marengo. In very up-to-the-minute style, customers in Earnley and Bosham have chosen Caesarstone Raw Concrete. The style of the worktops echo the polished concrete floors you find in contemporary interiors and offices.
Grey sparkle quartz worktops
Quartz is engineered from mineral fragments mixed with a touch of colour pigment and resin. Where fragments include glassy, mirror stones, the finished slabs sparkle in natural and electric light.
Sparkling grey quartz looks tremendous, especially in well-lit kitchens. One example is the sparkling Stellar Grey worktop we have fitted in Ferring. Other sparkling options to consider are Aluminio Nube, Atlantic Salt and Shitake.
Grey marbled quartz worktops
Grey quartz also comes in stones with marble-like veins. The look is like natural, quarried marble, but the marbling is created as part of the controlled manufacturing process. The options start with the understated and subtle Desert Silver and Eternal Serena. The marble effect is more pronounced in Bianco River and Noble Grey, and is more dramatic in Turbine Grey and Monaco, recently installed in Hove.
Grey quartz worktop finishes
Grey quartz comes in multiple finishes and textures. A high gloss finish is sharp and smart, and satin offers a softer look. A matt finish gives kitchens a very contemporary look, and, because it doesn’t reflect bright light, adds a calming note to the kitchen. We also supply grey quartz with textured finishes – with subtly dimpled, or even wood-grain or linen effects.
Which colours match grey quartz countertops?
For light grey quartz, think the same as for white, and try pairing with strong colours and dark contrasts. Dark grey quartz is in a similar zone to black, so goes well with lighter statement colours as well as with paler hues. Light or dark grey can also be the basis of a monochromatic kitchen, without the stark contrast of black and white.
Mid-greys are at often at their best with mid-toned colours – natural greens are very popular right now, as are teal and mustard. You can equally choose very light walls and units, and bring your kitchen beautifully to life with pops of colour in appliances and decorative touches.

What customers say about County Stone
Excellent. Lady very helpful and knowledgeable. Kitchen layouts and quartz worktops on display.
Recently had quartz worktops installed by County Stone and we’re absolutely delighted with them. The whole process of choosing, templating and installing was simple and efficient and we believe very well priced for the quality of product and service provided. Would highly recommend to anyone and will definitely use again in the future.
County Stone gave us excellent service throughout the process of choosing new kitchen worktops. Torn between having quartz or granite, Paul provided prices for different options which helped in making our final choice. Lee’s attention to detail in templating the worktops was excellent and final fitting was carried out just over a week later. Very happy with the finished result and would thoroughly recommend County Stone for quality, service and cost.
Good choice of stone and Quartz at reasonable prices. Friendly advice. Excellent fitters. Recommend them highly
Grey Quartz Worktop FAQs
How do you clean grey quartz worktops?
One of the practical advantages of our quartz worktops is that the surface is completely flat and non-porous. A regular wipe with a standard, anti-bacterial surface cleaner will comfortably deal with any kitchen spills and keep the stone looking as good as the day it arrived. The non-porous surface won’t harbour any germs either, so your kitchen will be hygienic too. There is further information about caring for quartz here.
How expensive is grey quartz?
Our prices for grey black quartz are more or less in line with prices for the other stones we supply. We believe they offer excellent value for money, given the quality of the stones we supply and the expertise of our fitting team. They will last a lifetime, so the initial cost is in effect spread over many, many years. There are cheaper worktops available elsewhere, but almost always that’s because they are inferior products and fitted by non-experts. Cheap worktops are invariably a false economy.
