Choose Colors to Go With Quartz Counters

Whether it's genuine granite or a man-made product like Silestone, the most popular countertops today have a multi-colored, rock-like look with palettes ranging from tan to blue. And while it is important to consider your counter's colors when choosing a wall color, that doesn't necessarily mean you need to (or should even try to) match the counter's dominant color exactly.

"If you try to match a natural material like wood or stone exactly," says Margaret Walch, director of The Color Association of the United States, "it always comes off as 'lesser'. Paint is an opportunity to use the stone as a jumping-off point for a multi-color design within the room."

To find paint colors that work well with your stone, suggests Paulette Diamond, ASID, vice president of the International Association of Color Consultants - North America, you can select one of the small flecks in the stone and use that for your paint color, like the photo shown above.

"Or, for a more dramatic look," she says, "select a color from the stone that you would like to emphasize. Locate that color on a color wheel and choose its opposite color, known as its complementary color, for the paint color," such as Sherwin-Williams Bunglehouse Blue (pictured above).
