Set Kitchens – Kitchen Remodel

Cambria quartz is a premium choice for kitchen countertops, known for its beauty, durability, and low maintenance. Cambria quartz offers a wide range of designs, mimicking the look of natural stone while providing the benefits of engineered quartz. This project focuses on incorporating Cambria quartz into a kitchen remodel to create a stunning, functional, and timeless space.

Steps and Tips for a Successful Cambria Quartz Kitchen Project:

  1. Selecting the Right Cambria Quartz Design:

    • Consider the Style: Choose a design that complements the overall aesthetic of your kitchen. Cambria offers a variety of patterns and colors, from subtle and classic to bold and dramatic.
    • Popular Options:
      • Brittanicca: Mimics the look of marble with sweeping, dramatic veins.
      • Torquay: Offers a soft, marble-like appearance with gentle veining.
      • Ella: Features an elegant, white background with long, linear veins.
      • Swanbridge: A soft, marbled design with subtle gray and white tones.

  2. Measuring and Planning:

    • Accurate Measurements: Ensure precise measurements of your kitchen countertops, including any cutouts for sinks, cooktops, or other appliances.
    • Layout Planning: Plan the layout to optimize the use of Cambria quartz slabs, minimizing seams and ensuring a seamless appearance.

  3. Choosing Complementary Elements:

    • Cabinetry: Select cabinetry that complements the chosen Cambria quartz design. White or light-colored cabinets work well with most quartz patterns, while darker cabinets can provide a striking contrast.
    • Backsplash: Consider a backsplash that either matches or complements the quartz countertops. Options include subway tiles, glass tiles, or even a continuation of the quartz material.
    • Hardware and Fixtures: Choose hardware and fixtures in finishes that enhance the overall design, such as brushed nickel, matte black, or polished chrome.

  4. Installation:

    • Professional Installation: Due to the weight and precision required for quartz countertops, professional installation is recommended. This ensures a perfect fit and seamless appearance.
    • Seam Placement: Plan seam placement carefully to minimize visibility. Professional installers can often place seams in inconspicuous areas.

  5. Functional Additions:

    • Kitchen Island: Consider incorporating a kitchen island with a Cambria quartz countertop for additional workspace and a central focal point.
    • Integrated Sinks: An undermount or integrated sink creates a clean, seamless look and makes cleaning easier.
    • Edge Profiles: Choose an edge profile that complements the overall design. Options include standard eased edges, more elaborate ogee edges, or modern waterfall edges.

Maintenance Tips:

  • Preventing Damage: Use cutting boards and trivets to protect the surface from scratches and heat damage.
  • Avoiding Stains: While quartz is non-porous and resistant to stains, clean up spills promptly, especially those involving acidic substances like lemon juice or wine.

Benefits of Cambria Quartz:

  • Durability: Cambria quartz is highly durable, resistant to scratches, stains, and heat, making it ideal for busy kitchens.
  • Low Maintenance: Unlike natural stone, quartz does not require sealing and is easy to clean and maintain.
  • Aesthetic Appeal: The wide range of designs and patterns allows for customization to fit any kitchen style.
  • Eco-Friendly: Cambria quartz is an environmentally friendly option, with many designs containing recycled materials.
