Loads of Chicago homeowners select quartz countertops for their bathrooms. Monochromatic elegance, a touch of vintage and bespoke furniture offset by globular mirrors that are inspired by the 80s Memphis Design aesthetic dominate current interior design trends. Although we’ve previously written about the best granite colors for bathrooms, quartz comes with unique qualities and is lower maintenance.
Quartz countertops are manufactured by grinding up natural, mineral quartz and pressing it into slabs held together with resin.

Here’s a list of trending quartz bathroom countertops.
