My favorite quartz color is Vezzano and I can’t wait to share it with you. It’s made by Pental and is very popular, not only because it’s versatile but also timeless. It all starts with waves of seafoam green, mixed with pretty white veins and sprinkles of sparkle throughout. What seals the deal when shopping for quartz countertops is that it is stain and scratch resistant and doesn’t need to be sealed. It will always look beautiful and stand the test of time. Stop in my indoor slab yard in Egg Harbor Township where I have full slabs of quartz and natural stone that will take your breath away. I will take the time to answer your questions and make your dreams come true.
Avalanche, a quartz color from Emerstone, is my top pick for an elegant kitchen. I love it for countertops because it draws you in with its bright white background and a whirlwind of black swirls guaranteed to make it your favorite space. Not only is this desirable color stain and scratch resistant, it also doesn’t need to be sealed, EVER, a plus for the selective customer. We have full slabs of Avalanche ready to make your project come to life. We take pride in our customer service and there’s something for everyone in my store including other quartz brands and natural stone for you to choose from. Let me guide you through this fun process. Call me today and let’s get started!
Cambria makes a stunning color of quartz called Montgomery. If you’re looking for that “beachy” look this stone delivers in a big way. The creams and ivories blended with subtle, understated veins of seafoam green and generous clusters of silver sparkles is a showstopper. It’s easy to be impressed by Montogomery when you see it as a slab but when it’s used in different designs, it takes your breath away. Not only does it look good as kitchen countertops or bathroom vanities; bathroom showers are on trend too. Cambria quartz is perfect for showers because it’s non-absorbent, which means no mold, mildew or bacteria will ever seep through and there is no grout. Quartz is also maintenance free and requires no cleaners or sealant. Go ahead, invite nature into your home with Montgomery quartz from Cambria. It will transform your space beautifully and hold up to the test of time.
Calacatta Luccia is a gorgeous quartz color from MSI. Calacatta is popular because it looks like marble without worrying about stains and scratches. What it does have is dramatic veining in “greige,” which is my way to describe the beautiful blending of gray and beige on a creamy, white background. I like using it as statement pieces like island waterfalls or other contemporary designs like shower walls or tub surrounds. Wood cabinets are trending now and when paired with Calacuttta Luccia it gives you that warm cozy feeling. It’s a nice neutral so most cabinet colors will match beautifully. Make Calacatta Luccia your choice for your remodel and bring modern elegance to your home.
I fell in love with Calacatta Verde when I first saw it. It’s a quartz color that is trending now for countertops because of its pretty green veining. I always tell my customers that green is the new blue so get on board! The pop of color is subtle but the pure white background with light grays really transforms your kitchen and bath countertops. The beauty of quartz is that it’s stain resistant, scratch resistant, and there are no grout lines, which is why it’s so popular. I like doing a gorgeous full height backsplash with this color, which we can install, as well. Feel free to play with different cabinet colors. Try blue or green but traditional white works works too. Visit our showroom to see Calacatta Verde and get inspired!
For homeowners who want to try something different in countertop design, Progressive Dimensions now offers honed finish. Honed granite is natural stone that is unpolished or matte (low-gloss shine). This finish has been creating quite a buzz over the past few years and here’s why: 1) When you run your palms along the surface, it’s soft and cool to the touch 2) If you’re looking for a relaxed look with visual appeal, honed granite is the perfect choice 3) Honed granite is non-reflective and, as a result, hides, scratches, etching and other imperfections better than polished granite 4)Honed granite is available in a wide range of colors. The grays, blacks, and off-whites are the most popular.
To keep your countertops in tip top shape, we recommend Progressive Dimensions’ 15 year Sealer. By properly sealing your granite countertop, you will increase its lifespan. The best part? Honed granite that has been taken care of won’t lose its value. If you spill acidic food or liquid, the best thing to do is clean it up right away with warm, soapy water and a soft cloth. Also, there are products on the market that work great on stains. Use Windex without ammonia for everyday cleaning.
If you’re thinking about incorporating honed granite in your home, Progressive Dimensions suggests that you stop in any of our showrooms to see large samples of all of our finishes: polished, brushed, iced, and honed. There you can compare, feel, and visualize which finish fits best in your personal space.
One of the most prominent kitchen trends of 2022 is custom finishes. Progressive Dimensions offers polished, honed, brushed, and iced finishes. The Iced Finish is a bold option that gives natural stone a beautiful sheen and an elegant yet rugged look. It’s created by taking a leathered finish countertop and adding high polish making the colors more vibrant while keeping the textured feel. It is so beautiful that it catches the eye of everyone who sees it. Whether you use it for tops in your kitchen, a backsplash in the bathroom, a fireplace surround or any place you’d like to elevate your design, Iced finish is a great way to do it.
Keep your countertops stain resistant with Progressive Dimensions’ 15 year sealer and clean them with warm soapy water, or Windex without ammonia.
Iced Finish is timeless and the perfect accent for your projects. Stop in to any of our 3 locations to shop this trend that will keep you happy for generations to come.
One of the most exciting aspects when selecting your natural stone at Progressive Dimensions Countertops is that you can choose your own finish. Here at Progressive Dimensions we fabricate four finishes: honed, brushed, iced and standard polish. This exclusive option allows homeowners, designers and builders to elevate their countertop projects and take their spaces to a whole new level.
The most popular of the four finishes is brushed (also known as leathered). A brushed finish is created when we remove the polish from a natural stone slab then we brush it with special pads, all with our digital machinery. By brushing natural stone, it allows colors to become more vibrant and desirable for any home.
It’s perfect for countertops in kitchens and baths, outdoor barbecues, fireplace surrounds, and any projects where you want to add extra texture to your décor. The most popular brushed finish stone offered by Progressive Dimensions is Portofino.
This finish, like all other finishes, doesn’t need special care to maintain it. Progressive Dimensions recommends treating brushed countertops the same way any natural stone is treated; by using Progressive Dimensions’ 15 year sealer, which prevents the countertop from getting stained. To keep it clean, a good rule of thumb is to use warm, soapy water, or Windex Multi Surface or Windex without ammonia.
We encourage you to visit any of our three locations to see these finishes in person, get inspired to try something unique, and feel the difference.

An excerpt from an article written by Marirose Krall of Design NJ Magazine:
” ‘Recently, we invested in a new machine that can “basically take the finish off granite and give the customer a variety of different options. Now we have four finishes: honed, leathered, iced and the standard polish. I found the machine at a trade show and knew I had to bring it to my customers. It’s really cool. Really neat stuff.” Ed’s pride and delight in his vocation is apparent every day. Lisette says, “He still loves doing this work, and that enthusiasm carries over to the guys who work in the shop.’ “
All of the finishes provided by Progressive Dimensions allow for the countertops to not only look stunning but be functional as well. All custom finishes can be cleaned and sealed the same way as a polished stone. Customizing your finish does not interfere with the integrity of the stone nor does it become softer. If you have any questions, please contact any of our locations for assistance.
Hi, this is Stephanie, design consultant at Progressive Dimensions Countertops Manahawkin store. We recently added quartz shower walls as one of our products and I have to say, when people see the display, they are smitten. The reason we added this product is because we’ve heard complaints from customers that tile and grout crack, break and pop, especially with homes that are being raised and start to sway. The quartz we use is non-porous, stain and scratch resistant and grout line free, which makes it easy to clean and maintain.
So, stop in and see me! You’re going to love it so much, you’ll want it in your home.
