Selecting a white quartz countertop with grey veins is a difficult choice for your home renovation. There are countless types of white, cream, or ivory quartz countertops.
It’s best to go with something not super white as it can be hard on the eyes, depending on the color of your cabinets and floors. Picking a more neutral cream or ivory is more soft and eye catching than a pure white quartz countertop.
