Best Silestone Calacatta Gold Quartz Pairing Ideas for Kitchen


You’re in love with your new granite countertop selection. Now it’s time to choose another thing to love in the kitchen — the backsplash.

One of the most popular backsplash materials for today’s modern kitchen is eternal calacatta gold Silestone. Silestone eternal calacatta gold is one of the most coveted natural stones in history. It’s patterned with a blueish and gray vein with flecks of golden shades against a creamy white backdrop.

No matter how you slice it, Silestone calacatta gold is an elegant addition to classic white kitchen designs, offers a striking contrast to darker design elements, and perfectly complements more colorful kitchens.

Silestone Calacatta Gold Quartz and Golden Accents

If you’re aiming for a light, airy, elegant kitchen, you can’t go wrong with a Silestone calacatta gold quartz backsplash or a calacatta gold quartz countertop paired with gold accents.

It looks fantastic in a kitchen with a white motif and gold or brass fixtures to further elevate the space. Dark wood flooring adds to the contrast. Shimmering gold light fixtures, cabinetry hardware, and faucets will beautifully offset the gold flecks in the calacatta gold Silestone.

You can’t get any more sophisticated than black. But how do you play up those darker elements and add sparkle to your kitchen? With Silestone eternal calacatta gold, of course. It offers a fresh and modern way to complement dramatic black countertops and cabinetry in the kitchen.

Consider lighter wood flooring and elements like hardware, light fixtures, and faucets in burnished gold. Leather seating in warm bourbon or cognac adds coziness to this more austere style.

Adding Wood to Eternal Calacatta Gold Quartz

Want to be unconventionally creative? If you’ve got cool white or gray countertops, you might think warm wood cabinetry won’t match. But we’d respectfully ask you to reconsider, and we think you’ll thank us later. That is if you pair your cool-toned countertops and warm wood cabinets with Silestone eternal calacatta gold.

The white backdrop of the eternal calacatta gold will match the cooler countertops. In contrast, the gold flecks in the Silestone eternal calacatta will play off the warmth of the wood cabinetry. The result is an unconventional showstopper of a kitchen.

Calacatta Gold Countertop and Gray Details

Your kitchen can have loads of personality with blue-gray cabinetry. When designing a kitchen with a blue motif, happy periwinkle shades are the “it” color of 2023.

The best thing about periwinkle is that it perfectly complements cool and warm-toned shades elsewhere in the kitchen with its grayish purple and red undertones. Do you know what else has cool and warm shades? Silestone eternal calacatta!

A calacatta gold quartz kitchen countertop looks sophisticated on top of happy periwinkle blue cabinets if you want to go all out with vibrant colors. Or you can play it safe with a Silestone eternal calacatta gold kitchen backsplash and smaller elements like trim in pretty gray periwinkle.

Eternal Calacatta Gold and Green Cabinets

Bring a little bit of the outside in with forest green, emerald, or teal cabinets. Dark, dramatic green is exceptionally eye-catching when contrasted against the crisp white and gold Silestone calacatta countertop and backsplash.

What about the hardware? Both brass and stainless steel will pair perfectly with saturated green jewel tones. Just as well, brass and stainless steel will pull the golden flecks out of the Silestone calacatta, making it the focal point of the kitchen. You can also go for a more toned-down look with sage or gray-green paint colors.
