March 24, 2016 | Quartz Designs

Canterbury-Cambrian-Collection_copy.jpgHomeowners have been struggling for decades, trying to decide between the unique patterns of natural stone like granite and the durability and low maintenance of quartz. Well, we've got good news for anyone looking to renovate his or her kitchen and don't know which way to turn: introducing Cambria Quartz.

What is Cambria Quartz?

Cambria is natural quartz that can be utilized as countertops, floor tile, vanities, fireplace surrounds, wet bars, showers, etc. Cambria is excavated from natural quartz quarries and, although Cambria’s designs have the natural look and feel of granite, marble, and other quarried stones, they possess superior performance qualities because of its strength and durability. It is nonporous and will not absorb food and liquids like other natural stones do. And best of all, it is maintenance-free. 

Benefits of Cambria Quartz

Because Cambria is harvested like Granite, you can see distinct, unique patterns within the stone. So, if you’re attached to the natural look, Cambria may be right for you.
