Our Quartz Countertops Colors
White Quartz Countertops
If you are looking for a way to brighten your bathroom or kitchen, our white quartz countertops can bring a clean look to any room. You don’t have to worry about staining, either. Quartz countertops are nonporous, meaning that spills, like coffee and fruit juice, won’t leave a trace. Additionally, all of our quartz countertops are made with our proprietary sealing agent, ForeverSeal®, which will ensure your countertops are both beautiful and durable.
If white quartz countertops aren’t your cup of tea, there’s no reason to worry. Our natural series of quartz countertops offers several other calming neutrals perfect for any room. Try gray quartz countertops and slabs for a refined, contemporary look. Our Pietra Serena engineered stone resembles the stone found in Michelangelo’s Medici Chapel in Florence and Apple stores around the world, proving how truly timeless this stone’s beauty is. The beautiful sandstone inspired material combines beige, white, and gray tones.
Off-White, Warm Neutrals, and Cream Quartz
All-white everything is great for making a room feel larger and brighter. However, many interior designers choose to balance spaces with off-white or cream elements for added dimension. At Granite Transformations, we offer a variety of off-white quartz countertops for those looking to add warmth and elegance to any room.
Marble, Granite, and Concrete Countertops
Looking for countertops that give you the benefits of quartz engineered stone but the look of other popular slabs such as granite, marble, or concrete? Then you’ve come to the right place. Granite Transformations has designed quartz colors to mimic some of the most highly sought after countertop surfaces.

How Are Quartz Countertops Made?
If you’ve already done some research, then you may know that quartz countertops aren’t made in the same way as their natural stone countertop contenders. Quartz is a naturally-occurring mineral and is the second most abundant mineral on the Earth’s continental crust. It’s also one of the world’s hardest minerals. Whereas quartz is a mineral, other popular countertop materials like granite and marble (a form of limestone), are rocks. Minerals are the fundamental components of rock, meaning granite countertops are actually in part composed of quartz. However, pure quartz slabs don’t exist in nature the same way granite does. Because of this, “quartz” countertops must be manmade.
When it comes to countertops, going with a manmade material might be the best thing for you and the environment. At Granite Transformations, our quartz countertops are predominantly quartz combined with naturally-occurring stone, recycled glass, and our proprietary polymer resin called ForeverSeal®. This combination of materials allows us to craft durable and unique quartz slabs in a variety of colors and patterns. ForeverSeal® ensures our quartz countertops are nonporous and scratch-, stain-, and heat-resistant. And, because we’re using recycled materials, our quartz slabs are good for the environment, too.
Why Quartz Countertops Are the Perfect Choice for Your Kitchen & Bathroom
Here are the main takeaways of why quartz countertops are the perfect choice for kitchen, bathroom, laundry room, and other home remodeling projects, summed up in the top 5 pros of quartz surfaces:
5 Pros of Quartz Countertops:
- No natural fractures: In most natural slabs, such as granite, naturally-occurring fractures throughout the stone require regular sealing to ensure safety and sanitation. Quartz countertops, on the other hand, don’t have these natural fractures.
- Nonporous: Another reason why many popular countertop surfaces need to be sealed year after year is that they are porous. Quartz countertops are nonporous, meaning that stain- and odor-causing liquids and bacteria can’t penetrate the surface and sacrifice its safety or beauty. Plus, our proprietary polymer resin, ForeverSeal®, ensures you’ll never have to reseal your quartz surfaces.
- Unmatched Durability: Quartz is one of the strongest minerals in the world. Compared to granite and concrete, which scratch and fracture easily, its durability is unmatched.
- Low-maintenance: Quartz is the perfect choice for busy homes because it never needs to be resealed. Simply wipe over the surface with soapy water for daily cleaning and upkeep. Just make sure to use hot pads and avoid the use of harsh chemicals to keep your quartz countertops looking beautiful for years to come.
- Versatility: Because quartz countertops are manmade, you have the world at your fingertips when it comes to colors, patterns, and styles. Whether you’re looking for quartz that resembles other popular materials or you’re interested in quartz countertops for their unique look, the material presents endless opportunities for design.
