White quartz countertops offer a clean and classic neutral backdrop for personalized kitchen style. The sophisticated look and soft movement in Torquay make it a captivating and versatile marble alternative for a luxe feel in any space. This stand-out design from Cambria offers texture, subtle veining, and notes of greige and taupe for a white countertop that is anything but stark.
We’re rounding up four of our favorite kitchens with Cambria Torquay, showcasing how this one distinctive countertop design can complement any kitchen aesthetic.
Torquay is an ideal marble alternative with the same glamour and elegance but with the durability of Cambria.
This gray and white kitchen from Fiddlehead Design Group is sophisticated and chic. Torquay countertops tie together the white backsplash and contrasting cabinetry, giving the homeowner a canvas for personal style to shine through. Going gray with your cabinets is a way to create eye-catching contrast that isn’t too overwhelming if you want to focus on other aspects of the space.
Let your personality shine through with creative open-shelving décor and a pop of color. Torquay offers a neutral countertop with delicate movement.
The classic coastal palette of blue and white invokes images of sandy beaches and gentle waves. Cambria’s Torquay is the perfect neutral countertop for this nautical kitchen style. Its subtle movement and sandy taupe swirls are ideal for natural texture in a coastal kitchen. In this white kitchen with Torquay, Lisa Michael Interiors incorporates metal stools, antiqued brass, and patterned navy textiles for an homage to the Hamptons. Try bold patterns that incorporate varying shades of blue for a refreshing coastal palette that pairs well with white quartz countertops and cabinets.

Some other coastal kitchens we love with Torquay are Bright Bazaar’s blue and white kitchen and Jaclyn Johnson’s Cali-chic green kitchen with waterfall edge and backsplash. Just like vacations spent on sandy shores, this kitchen style will always be in season.
Contemporary and Classic
Contemporary kitchens are the perfect balance of old and new. Old-world charm pairs with streamlined functionality for a modern yet cozy look. This black and white kitchen by GlucksteinHome features a large Torquay island, perfect for prep and entertaining. Brass fixtures, globe pendant lights, and modern floating shelves offer elevated style.

This design is luxe but livable, as Cambria countertops outperform marble and other countertop options. Another contemporary classic kitchen we’re swooning over is this luxury kitchen from Melissa Morgan featuring double islands for maximum Torquay beauty.
Torquay’s gentle movement with a white backdrop makes it an irresistible option for a farmhouse kitchen, which relies on rustic and relaxed touches. The greige veining plays off natural wood accents and other organic materials that are common in farmhouse spaces. A barn door range hood, charming stone island, and industrial pendant lighting come together for a cozy farmhouse feel in Shanty2Chic’s kitchen featuring Torquay countertops.
