Quartz Fireplace Surround Ideas

1. A Granite-Alternative Fireplace Surround

Berwyn™, one of our favorite granite alternatives, adds elegant texture and tones for a subtle contrast in this light living space. “We found that Cambria had the nicest color options to work with our beachy blue-gray theme,” says Andi Wheelband of Two Birds Design. “We kept most material white with only soft blues and very little gray as accents and Berwyn fit the bill perfectly.”

3. A Matte Black Modern Fireplace Surround

This lake home is cool and contemporary with a Cambria Black Matte™ fireplace surround offering chic contrast in the light-filled living area. “I use Cambria for 90% of my countertop and hard surface needs. The variety of style and colors makes it unique to each design I do for my clients,” says Megan Gaerte, interior designer/principal at West Central Home LLC. “For this home, I wanted to do a clean and modern lake home design. I chose the Cambria Black Matte to pull in a casual texture needed for the space to add comfort without overwhelming the shiplap.”

Benefits of Installing a Quartz Fireplace Surround

Beauty of Quartz

As one of the hardest minerals around, quartz is a popular and reliable choice for everything from kitchen countertops to shower walls and fireplace surrounds. Cambria quartz surfaces offer an expansive design palette with beautiful and unique designs with the highest available concentrations of pure quartz to ensure both beauty and brawn. The best part is that it’s extremely easy to clean with just warm water, a soft cotton cloth, and mild soap, if desired—no fancy or harsh cleaning solutions or high-maintenance remedies are required to keep your quartz surface looking as beautiful as the day it was installed for years to come.

Durable Surface

Who said elegance and toughness can’t exist together? Cambria quartz surfaces are as durable as they are gorgeous—and vice versa. Our quartz is stronger and more durable than granite, marble, concrete, or any soapstone options, which makes it an ideal scratch- and chip-resistant surface for your fireplace surround.

Cambria’s Transferable Full Lifetime Warranty

At Cambria, we offer a lifetime of superior performance. This means that you can get the best out of your space and rest peacefully knowing Cambria’s got you covered, protecting you from any manufacturing defects. We pride ourselves on our product’s quality to ensure you’re getting the finest-cut material you can get your hands on.

Design Your Next Fireplace Surround Featuring Cambria Quartz Surfaces

We hope these quartz fireplace surround ideas have you eager to start your next project! As each fireplace is different, you’ll want to confirm with your fabricator and refer to the fireplace manual to ensure Cambria can be used successfully in your project. Cambria’s transferable Full Lifetime Warranty covers manufacturing defects, not installations, so we recommend working with your fabricator to make sure the proper installation guidelines are used. Contact a Cambria dealer near you to get started.
