1. Exceptional Beauty in Every Quartz Design

The marble-alternative quartz designs range from subtle and soft to showstopping bold. Quartz designs like SwanbridgeTorquayDelgatie™, and Ella™ set an elegant tone in white kitchens, spa-like master baths, or custom walk-in closets. With powerful veining and movement, BrittaniccaSkara Brae™, and Rose Bay™ make lasting statements in both modern and traditional spaces. Annicca™ lends gold and purple sparkle for a luxury feel. And whichever design you choose, it will look as beautiful decades down the line as the day it’s installed.

2. Cambria Quartz Surfaces Are Offered in Matte and High Gloss

Most Cambria quartz surfaces are available in two surface finish options, so you can choose the aesthetic that suits your space. Cambria Matte® is a velvety, low-sheen finish that’s anything but dull. We love its distinctive, sleek look and modern sensibility—and the fact that it has the same performance benefits as our high gloss finish. High gloss, with its reflective surface and classic pristine look, is a great option to visually expand a smaller space or brighten one that’s low on natural light.

3. Quartz Is More Durable and Requires Less Maintenance

The most important question to ask yourself, whether renovating or building new, is “How do I want to use the space?” Do you picture a kitchen filled with friends savoring wine? A morning espresso at the kitchen island? Making breakfast with your kids? With marble countertops, you must attend to spills immediately, getting in the way of entertaining or unwinding. With the durable, stain-resistant marble-alternative designs, you and your loved ones can fully enjoy your new space and admire your new space up close. For high-use spaces like kitchens and bathrooms, seek out the benefits of Cambria quartz surfaces, as impressive as they are beautiful. A stunning Cambria quartz countertop means maintenance-free ease, and no special products or chemicals to keep it in its beautiful state. Simply clean with warm water, a soft cotton cloth, and a mild soap, if desired.
