Caesarstone Colors

December 6th, 2014

Caesarstone Color Choices

You’ll find with Caesarstone Colors there are many fabulous choices complimenting design from classic to contemporary. It was a tough decision narrowing our choice down to four colors to discuss in this forum. Caesarstone Quartz Reflections, Chocolate Truffle, Red Shimmer and Coastal Gray.

Caesarstone Colors Connaughton Construction

The environmentally appealing idea behind Caesarstone Quartz Reflection Classico Collection and Chocolate Truffle is the use of recycled material; recycled glass and reclaimed quartz. Keeping an open mind when it comes to colors and variations of Caesarstone Quartz. You’ll be thrilled by the uniqueness and your guests will be awed. Every piece can result in color variations. But that’s part of the mystery.

Color impacts our mood, our appetite, our energy level.

Caesarstone Quartz Reflections

Quartz Reflections is mostly white. It evokes feelings of cool. White is totally reflective, awakening openness, growth and creativity. You can’t hide behind it as it amplifies everything in its way. The color white is cleanliness personified, the ultimate in purity!!

White is a color of protection and encouragement, offering a sense of peace and calm, comfort and hope, helping alleviate emotional upsets. It creates a sense of order and efficiency, a great help if you need to declutter your life.

In business, white is a blank canvas waiting for creative stimulation. It implies efficiency and simplicity, fairness and order.


 Caesarstone Chocolate Truffle

Just the name makes me hungry for chocolate. Imagine being surrounded by this earthy tone. It’s very calming and provides a slight contracts with the white cabinets.

Brown is associated with strength and solidarity, comfort and earthiness, maturity and reliability. Brown suggests endurance, duty and stability. It relates to the outdoors, the practical and down-to-earth and the family unit. Many men love brown due to its strength, security and practicality.

Sometimes brown is regarded as a neutral color, although the lighter versions of it such as beige and taupe tend to work better as background neutrals than the deeper shades of brown.

In business, brown evokes practical, reliable, dependable, credible and durable, warm, wholesome, natural and organic.

Caesarstone Red Shimmer

Imagine the impact you can make with Red Shimmer. This color is killer hot and bold!

Red Shimmer is one of those Colors that is referred to as a “warm” color. It evokes images associated with heat, like fire or sunshine. As a result it makes us feel warm.

It also stimulates the appetite and is often used in restaurants and is an excellent choice for dining rooms in the home.

Red Shimmer warms a room in a dramatic way. The mood and attitude of Red Shimmer is fiery and welcoming. Red Shimmer works well in restaurants, diners – especially 50’s diners, big open rooms such as hotel lobby’s or bar areas.

Caesarstone Coastal Gray

Coastal Gray appears to contain shades of gray and black. Color experts predict gray to be the most popular color for home interiors in 2015.

Gray, is very easy on the eyes. It’s understated and sophisticated. And most tints and shades of gray are ‘chameleon’ colors that change appearance when the light changes, so they provide enormous visual interest.

Caesarstone Coastal Gray_Connaughton ConstructionAnother reason for its popularity: Coastal Gray is a very versatile color that coordinates beautifully with a wide range of hues. As a result, it can be used in many different color schemes and with almost any style of décor.

Pairing Coastal Gray with one or more neutral colors – white, off-white, beige, taupe, soft blue, or black – can produce a tranquil color scheme capable of making an indoor space more relaxing. That’s why we so often see these combinations in areas where we seek refuge and comfort, such as bedrooms and family rooms.

Coastal Gray can also serve as an ideal foil for more adventurous color, ranging from saturated hues like purple, fuchsia, rust, and navy to softer tints like dusty pink and pale lavender. Color schemes employing these combinations can be used in virtually any room in the home.

Caesarstone Coastal Gray runs the gamut from delicate silver tints to powerful shades of gunmetal, charcoal, and slate. In each, black and white is present, but often, traces of other colors, too. These “trace colors” provide valuable clues as to what works best with a given gray.
