The Beauty of Quartz in Bathrooms and Kitchens
My husband and I have been remodeling homes for over ten years and we've used all kinds of surfaces for countertops. For our most recent renovation we researched the best products on the market and came to the conclusion that Caesarstone quartz was ideal for the look we were seeking.
Both the master bathroom and kitchen in this home were stuck in the year 1989. The cabinets were honey oak and the fixtures were dated, too. The master bathroom vanity cabinets were salvageable so to freshen the space we repurposed the vanity, reinventing it as a floating vanity by removing the base.
I also flipped the doors around to take advantage of the more modern, Shaker-style trim hiding on the opposite side. Read more about how the builder grade vanity became a floating one in this article.
The quartz countertop in Pure White was installed in preparation for the dramatic diamond tile backsplash and updated fixtures. The changes transformed the bathroom into a chic, modern space and we couldn't be happier with the fresh new look!
In the same home, the kitchen's honey oak cabinets were in far worse condition, having taken a beating from 30 years of use. The fluorescent box light fixture and wallpaper also kept it looking drab and dated.
We started over with new cabinets, incorporating a more modern two-color cabinet approach with white up above and gray down below.
Refer to this article about the installation process for details on the Pure White slabs seen in this space. Polished chrome pulls and a sparkling geometric tile backsplash transformed this kitchen into a stunner!
In the breakfast nook, we added twin pantries and new cabinetry where before there was only a blank wall. We used Caesarstone's Pure White once again to create a small breakfast station housing a coffee maker, toaster, and bowl for fresh fruit to make morning meals quick and easy.
If you've ever debated over the right countertops for bathrooms and kitchens, quartz is truly the best modern solution. We love our Caesarstone quartz. It's durable, beautiful and will guarantee decades of satisfaction!
