As we wrap up the year, we wanted to go over some of the great colors added to our partner, Caesarstone’s, collection. We love working with their products because they were the first to produce high-quality quartz surfaces. Caesarstone designs retain the cool tactile qualities of nature’s strong minerals and their new colors are no exception.
The first color we’ll look at really showcases Caesarstone’s remarkable talent for creating perfect organic designs. Its oversized veining traverses the slab, creating a complex and layered design over the pure white background. The contrasting soft greige veins with fine copper-gold outlines reflect the mineral deposits found in nature. The best part? This design uses fluid veining, which allows separate slabs to line up seamlessly. This means that, for the first time, slabs can be lined up to create a “super max” length for large islands, countertops, backsplashes, shower walls, and feature walls.
2020 has been the year of dark countertops and it’s apparent that Caesarstone has taken this trend to heart. Black Tempal is a complex composition of dark grey mineral-like layers across a black charcoal base, mimicking natural stones like travertine and slate. According to their website, this color was inspired by the dark sky and ocean tides at night.
Our third new color of 2020 is Oxidian. It’s a black base with a rust-like effect over top. This captures the texture of an oxidized surface that would be perfect for industrial or rustic spaces. Oxidian is a warm, dark color choice that would really elevate a space.
The next new color we’re featuring is Piatto Black. We’re serious when we say dark countertops are the new in-trend! This is the ultimate dark shade, but don’t think of it as “just black”. Piatto Black has a fine granular appearance with a textured finish making it a deeper, more intimate black. This dramatic color was made for modern or minimalist kitchens that want that sleek, urban look.
If the deep, solid black of Piatto is too much for you then Empira Black is the color you’re looking for. It still has the rich black base that’s so popular these days but it’s broken up by fine white veins. This brings some depth and movement to the surface. It’s still very dramatic but leans on the modest beauty of natural organic veining. If you like the fine lines but aren’t sure about the dark shade, check out its inverted counterpart Empira White.
Do you think these Caesarstone 2020 colors will hold up in the new year? Is the dark countertop trend here to stay? Let us know in the comments! If you’re interested in using one of these colors in your next project give us a call.
