Wish I Had That- Natural Quartz Countertops



This post is sponsored by M S International. The content and opinions expressed below are that of Sweet Parrish Place.

Hi all!  In my earlier days of blogging, I used to write posts from time to time titled Wish I Had That, and they were fun roundups of different things that, well, I wish I had!  I always enjoyed writing those, and I don't know why I got away from it, but I really want to bring back Wish I Had That, so there is no better time than the present!  I am going to put a little spin on it from now on though, and it requires your participation.  I am going to show you a picture of something in my home, and then I am going to show you a round up of things I wish you had, and you tell me in the comments which one you think would be the best fit in my home!  Fun, right!?  The topic for today's Wish I Had That is Natural Quartz Countertops. All of the countertops featured here today are premium natural quartz surfaces, and I am in love with quartz for countertops!

The counter tops in my kitchen are just cream colored Formica counter tops, certainly nothing special, and I would love to have new counter tops installed.  I worked on making over our kitchen a lot when we first moved in.  We painted the cabinets, we did a  faux painted subway tile backsplash, I painted the kitchen door black, and I made some really cute DIY no sew cafe curtains.  More recently I made over a vintage bar cart for some extra storage in the kitchen. One thing we have not done is replace the counter tops.  But we would love to.  Here is a picture of my kitchen- won't you please take a look at all of the options I have provided here today, and at the end of this post, tell me which one you would like best in my kitchen?  I would absolutely love your input!  OK, so this is our kitchen (the best picture I could find that really shows you what the countertops currently look like.

What are your thoughts on natural quartz countertops?  Premium natural quartz surfaces are made by fusing quartz and resin  materials.  The results are naturally beautiful yet incredibly durable because it is one of nature's hardest minerals.  Quartz is scratch resistant, stain resistant and is offered in an array of colors, making it, in my opinion, perfect for countertops!  M S International's premium quartz countertops are also backed by a residential lifetime warranty, which is undeniably awesome.  

I tried to show you a variety of different colors of quartz countertops above, to give you plenty of options.  Now, I am dying to know!  Please tell me in the comments which one you think would be best suited for my kitchen,  Remember, I have shown you a picture of my kitchen in the first picture.  I can't wait to get some other people's opinions!  Go for it, tell me what you think!  I will let you know which was the reader favorite, and my top pick, in a future post!  

Thank you for visiting Sweet Parrish Place today, and please tell me what you think of this idea of bringing you something I wish I had and asking readers to give their opinions!  You can visit M S International to see many more colors and types of premium natural quartz.  It can be used for flooring and bathrooms too!   Have a great day!
