Think Outside the Box: Taking Quartz Slabs Off the Counter

A trusted and popular option for carefree countertops, quartz slabs are useful in an array of settings beyond their typical kitchen and bath locales. Far from a countertop-only contender, it presents a wide variety of uses for your home or business…

5 Clever Ways to Use Engineered Quartz Beyond Kitchen & Bath Countertops:

  1. Feature Wall
    As a single slab, seamless panel, or laid out as book-matched slabs, engineered quartz can make a dramatic feature wall in any home or business. Looking for added flair? New water jet cutting technology allows for the addition of amazing patterns – or even a company logo. Ideal for vertical applications, the large panel size and cool surface of quartz is the perfect way to lend a high-end feel to any space for a reasonable price.
  2. Backsplash
    Add color, texture, and visual interest to your kitchen or bath design with a backsplash featuring the rich, vibrant colors and glossier surface of engineered quartz.
  3. Furniture
    Add a touch of luxury with a side table, coffee table, sofa table, dining room table, or entertainment unit topped with custom fabricated quartz, creating your own one-of-a-kind piece or freshening up your existing furniture. A robust countertop surface, carefree quartz offers a high-end look that can stand up to even the most extreme use.
  4. Bath Surround
    Already popular for topping off bathroom vanities, quartz also functions beautifully as a bath surround, reducing grout lines, and making maintenance a breeze with its easy-care, non porous, mold, mildew, and bacteria-resistant surface.
  5. Shelving
    Add custom shelving around your home or business, tying spaces together with custom quartz shelving. Install with brackets, or add to another surface (such as wood) for a distinctive look.

Getting Creative with Off-Cuts
Leftovers from your kitchen, bath, or creative quartz creation? Don’t toss them! Take advantage of them for…

  • Serving Trays
    Repurpose your sink cutout as a custom serving tray or cheese board, adding a few non-slip pads beneath.
  • Laundry Benchtop
    Put stone leftover from kitchen or bath redesigns to use as a small laundry room benchtop, adding a touch of luxury to an often overlooked space.
  • Window Sills
    Narrow strips of leftover quartz are perfect for window sills, adding a touch of distinction, fighting moisture and mildew, and making cleaning a breeze.
  • Kickboards
    Rather than finishing kickboards in the same material as cabinets or brushed aluminum, consider utilizing off-cuts of quartz as kickboards for a more cohesive, high-end look and feel.
