Upgrade Your New York Kitchen with MSI Quartz
Choosing the right countertops for your New York kitchen upgrade requires a balance of functional and aesthetic considerations. Luckily, you’ll find both in spades when you choose MSI Quartz.
Made with 93% natural quartz and resins and pigments for binding and design, this countertop material is not only incredibly strong and durable, but it can be made to look like the most popular natural stone options, or it can be completely unique.
It’s resistant to common damage like scratches, chips, cracks, and stains, and the non-porous surface is food safe and resistant to microbes like bacteria.
If this sounds perfect for your household, the next step is choosing the ideal design for your remodeling project. How can MSI quartz contribute to the beautiful and inviting kitchen you have in mind?
A traditional kitchen space may feature any number of design elements, but the heart of this style is a feeling of comfortable solidity and refinement. The materials used will appear substantial, such as cabinets that tend to have a bit more bulk, while a neutral color palette and simplicity of design will exude a sense of calm and sophistication.
There’s a reason this classic style endures. Just look at this traditional, tonal white kitchen, featuring white cabinets and dark counters around the perimeter, with a white and gray backsplash tile to soften the transition.
Visual interest is added via the island, with its dark base and Arctic White quartz countertop, as well as stainless appliances, metallic hardware, and pendant lights. The overall vibe is comfortable and inviting.
Neutrals have long dominated home design because they create a blank slate for homeowners to add personality through accessories and easily update with changing seasons or style trends.
That said, modern homeowners are throwing caution to the wind, foregoing the all-neutral slate, and choosing colorful foundational elements like countertops and cabinets.
This transitional kitchen in primary colors is a great example of the trend toward brighter, more joyful living spaces. The trend of light upper and dark lower cabinets is observed but turned on its head with a bold, saturated blue on the bottom and white cabinets above.
The countertop in Carrara Morro Quartz quartz helps tie the upper and lower planes of the room together, while the expanse of white in the top half of the room is broken up by a small-scale tile in white with pops of primary red, yellow, and blue. If you want to make functional fun, this contemporary kitchen serves as ideal inspiration.
Cozy Beach Style
The pandemic brought about a shift in thinking regarding home design. Many homeowners stuck indoors found themselves wishing for living spaces that were not only comfortable but comforting. The result was a resurgence of traditional styles and materials like wood that imbue a space with warmth.
If you want that weekends-in-the-coastal cottage to feel all the time, this beach-style kitchen might be just the vibe you’re pining for.
Avoiding the coastal trend of whitewashing, this beach style instead leans heavily in favor of natural elements, with light wood flooring and beams, paneling, and custom cabinets in mid-tone, heavy-grained wood that adds heaps of personality.
This much wood could feel heavy and dark, but with white paint, countertops in Calacatta Trevi quartz, and tons of windows and recessed lights to brighten the space, it just feels incredibly clean, warm, and welcoming.
If typical coastal design feels a bit too laid back and unstructured for everyday living, but you want that beachy, airy appeal, you can bring modern sophistication to the style. By blending traditional elements with coastal hallmarks like bleached wood and a soft white palette, you’ll get the balanced design you seek.
This updated farmhouse kitchen offers an ideal example, with pale wood flooring, white perimeter cabinets, stainless steel appliances, a pale gray island base and backsplash, and black hardware.
The visual interest comes in with the Calacatta Venice quartz for perimeter counters and the waterfall island. A warm white background and chunky gray veining bring subtle patterns and movement to the design.
Modern design doesn’t require you to stand on tradition when it comes to the style you choose. You can mix and match in exciting and innovative ways to create spaces that capture your personal taste and suit your lifestyle.
Case in point: this contemporary farmhouse kitchen. Wooden elements, including pale, knotty wood flooring and a slightly richer island base, deliver the farmhouse vibe, but this is where the association with the style ends. These elements are paired with a chic, contemporary palette and materials.
Modern touches include perimeter cabinets in a slate hue, black and stainless appliances, countertops, and a full-height backsplash in Calacatta Laza quartz, offering statement style. The feeling is sleek and modern but grounded in warmth.
