Knowing the difference between design patterns and the terms used to differentiate one slab from the other will help you in picking the right type of quartz for your countertops. In order to show you the design patterns, we have created a list below of 5 basic types of quartz that we have here at Mogastone. You can see our large variety of different quartz options and colors by visiting our online inventory or our showroom.

Solid Color Quartz Design

Solid color quartz countertops provide a contemporary look to the kitchen. Even though these materials are very simple and can be found in the lower priced levels, they still provide a strong visual impact with their modern simplicity and when they’re accented with a bold tile backsplash.

Speckle Quartz Design

Speckled quartz slabs have a stunning blend of whites and reflective icy speckles as the photo below shows. What’s more is that this sparkly, shiny type of material, though it displays a sense of luxury and taste, can also be found in the lower price levels.

Carrara Quartz Design

This style of quartz provides a more natural sense than the types above. Additionally, Carrara Quartz gives you a natural Carrara marble look but without the maintenance required with the real marble. Also, this quartz design is in the middle price range.

Calacatta Quartz Design

Calacatta Quartz countertops represent the essence of a marble look. The things that demonstrate this is the dramatically thick, bold veining and a soft white backdrop. Because of its natural, luxurious style, this quartz design is in the higher price level.

Statuario Design

The Statuario design is the pinnacle of marble-imitating quartz, and it’s a quartz that customers and even professionals can mistake for real marble. This rich design is the result of adding Calacatta-style veining and movement to a Carrara-style backdrop.
