2 different colors for a counter top?

I have a red laminate countertop however I need a new cook top. Mine is on its last legs. It sits in my island and the cut is too large for a new cooktop to be put in. I was thinking of using Cambria Quartz just for the island countertop. Would that look strange?

I would not recommend using quartz and laminate together in the same kitchen. It will most likely make the laminate look very cheap. I would re-do all of the kitchen countertops at once if budget allows.

Have you picked out the actual quartz model ? it would be helpful to know. I agree it's not ideal to mix laminate and solid countertops.

Was attempting to show red working with other surfaces. It is hard to know what to advise without seeing what you have currently.
