Above, another option for creating a focal wall is to use Cambria in a smaller, strategic area. Specifically in this smaller-footprint kitchen, a full height backsplash both creates an easy-to-clean area behind the stove but is also a great way to integrate the countertop & backsplash visually.

The 'What', 'How' & 'Why' of Cambria & Quartz Craft

Golden-Dragon_K_R_Rendered_Nov-NDL_01_18.jpg

We know there is plenty to learn about countertops for the average homeowner. We love educating and inspiring our clients on the multiple benefits of Cambria, and on how easy it is to get their project started. We hope this information helps you start your journey to finding the right product for you!

What is Cambria?

Cambria is a natural quartz surfacing product that has a variety of uses in your home or business such as countertops, floor tile, vanities, fireplace surrounds, wet bars, showers, etc. Cambria is made of pure, natural quartz, one of the hardest and most abundant minerals on Earth. Some of Cambria’s designs have the natural look and feel of granite, marble and other quarried stones, but feature superior performance because of Cambria's strength and durability. It is nonporous and will not absorb food and liquids like granite does. And best of all, it is maintenance-free.

What is the process of getting my countertop?

The process from start to finish is 4 simple steps:
1) Request a Quote - click here!
2) Fill in a Template Request & Order Form
3) Template - learn more here
4) Install - learn more here

How do I request a Quote?

It is easy to get a quote for your project. Simply print out the Quote Request Form and create a simple hand sketch of your countertop requirements. Then you can either scan & e-mail it to us at sales@quartzcraft.ca or fax it to our office at 905-967-0950. Quartz Craft Countertops will return the quote to you within 24 hours.

Why doesn't Quartz Craft give a per sq foot price?

Kitchen Trend: Two Toned Cabinetry

Choosing two styles, colours or materials for kitchen cabinets is a great way to create both a distinct style and also the impression of separate work spaces. Not only does mixing and matching kitchen cabinets mean you have double the opportunity to make a statement in your space, but also that you could potentially choose a bold material or colour to create a feature area, and to allow certain areas of your kitchen to really shine. Today we’re sharing 3 kitchens which use two-tone cabinets to incredible results- one modern, one transitional & one traditional.

Featured Design: White Cliff  ink

Above, this modern masterpiece uses gorgeous neutral wood for the island work & bar area, and sleek white cabinets for the food prep & stovetop area. Because of the dramatic monochrome colour palette, the use of wood helps to warm up the space and create unexpected texture!

Above, the style of cabinet in this beautiful kitchen is consistent throughout, but the perimeter’s soft white contrasts boldly with the island’s sharp black. By using a shaker style cabinet throughout, this kitchen feels cohesive & intentional.

Lastly, this traditional kitchen showcases beautiful woodworking on both the upper cabinets & island. Again, the soft neutral greige of the perimeter contrasts with the deep inky black of the island to create a feeling of separation between work top & socializing areas.

Style Focus: Golden Tones

Today’s blog is all about spaces which feature warm, golden & welcoming colour palettes. Whether using high-polish brass, warm brick, brushed gold, natural wood or simply a softly warm paint, we’re seeing a design resurgence of warm tones in almost every space of the home.

Including warmer tones in your design is a great way to achieve a welcoming, homey feel. Even if you are a lover of crisp, cool tones like blues & greys, including a few pops of warmth is always a great idea to bring balance & interest to a space.

Today we’re sharing 3 spaces which use warm tones in completely different ways, but all achieve a welcoming, interesting & unique look.

Below, this beautiful coastal inspired retreat is a perfect example of cool & warm executed to perfection. This stunning space features traditional design motifs like built-in cabinetry, shiplap walls & transom- style windows. The custom buffet is completely built-in and topped with Cambria’s Whitehalll design, ensuring that hard-working area will look just as crisp for years to come.

These elements are softly familiar & invoke a feeling of warmth & classic good taste. Keeping these a crisp white allows them to feel crisp and modern, while using cool toned art & accents creates a relaxing feel. To keep this space from feeling predictable, however; the use of a modern light fixture with a truly unexpected pop of gold truly changes the feel of this entire space!

Named after what was once the main residence of English Monarchs, Whitehall is simple and elegant with tiny flecks of gray reminiscent of light filtered through a soft morning mist in old London town.

The next space we’re sharing is a completely different way to incorporate warm tones in a space! A large custom range hood in a buffed gold texture adds a focal poin & old world character to this range nook. Black & gold pop against warm taupe backsplash, while a stunning Cambria Annicca Matte countertop adds movement & a subtle luxe shimmer. The combination of tones & textures creates a high-end, totally custom kitchen which looks effortless yet refined. The matte texture of the countertop plays beautfully against the softly glimmering textured glass backsplash. Controlling where & how light reflects in a space is an important part of creating the feel of your home, and this is an excellent example of how that can be achieved.

Lastly, this custom closet is a white-on-white dream. Clouds of soft whites are paired together here to create a serene space against which clothes will pop. Considering the way in which you plan to use a space is always the best first step when designing a functional room. Certainly, in a closet there is an argument to be made for a white backdrop against which to create! This space proves that white on white need not be boring - architectural & golden light fixtures draw the eye & provide a glamourous feel, while a beautiful Cambria Brittanicca Warm dressing island is a gorgeous feature with soft movement & delicate tones of white & greige.

Kitchen Trend: Inky Blue Cabinetry

With a definite shift in the kitchen industry towards more colour, texture & pattern it is no surprise that deep blue shades & mixing materials is becoming more common. Blue is the clear winner for most adult’s favorite colour - over 40% of adults name blue their favourite hue. Deep blues are calming, sophisticated and a little unexpected. We love the idea of incorporating blue cabinets with many of Cambria’s gorgeous designs, so today we’re sharing a few stunning spaces to inspire.

Classic White & Navy Cabinets and a Weybourne Waterfall

Design Trend: Warm & White

The classic white kitchen is always in style. White kitchens are excellent for resale and look gorgeous & fresh for years to come!

Of course, throughout the decades there are slight variations in the style of white kitchens. Depending on your locale & the age of your home you may find that traditional wood cabinets are most appropriate. If you are in a city, perhaps high-gloss or matte finish doors will lend a high-design edge to your space. Regardless of the style of the space you are designing, though, there are trends which will likely influence your design to help it feel current.

Today’s design trend is the prevalence of warm, natural tones & textures in kitchen design. Likely you’ve seen a shift toward desert hues & wood, jute or woven items in home decor. As always with a high-cost investment renovation like a kitchen, trends are slower to percolate & tend to me more subtle in their inclusion but we are definitely seeing these softer, warmer tones & textures emerge in many of today’s kitchens.

Let’s look at some spaces which really nail the warm & white trend!

This kitchen uses a rosy-warm wood tone to bring a welcoming & casual feel to the space. Integrating floating shevles in the same wood tone as the butcher block breakfast bar is a great way to make a space feel cohesive! A healthy dose of white through the classic subway tile backsplash & Cambria’s Ella design countertops lets this space still feel airy & light, with the perfect amount of warmth.

Incorporating a wooden top to a non-food preparation area is a great way to add texture & warmth without sacrificing performance. This kitchen features Brittanicca Gold tops on island & perimeter, paired with contrasting black & white cabinets for extra drama. Despite the healthy dose of black & wood tones, this space still reads as a white kitchen - a great reminder to be bold & playful with your design!

This custom workspace nook is the perfect place for homework, writing a grocery list or getting a little relaxing time while dinner simmers. This white-on-white look is perfect for the traditional style of the home, but is warmed up perfectly by the combination of Brittanicca Warm countertops & a French country inspired wooden chair. We love the idea of incorporating a space for work into a heavily used room like a kitchen. Adding full-height backsplash is a great way to tie this space in with the rest of the room & adding a luxurious touch.
