Cambria for Beauty and Function
I recently had the pleasure of designing a homeowner’s dream bath! The design process led me down a path where I used Cambria in both expected and innovative ways. Beautiful as a counter and tub surround, but also functional as a shower bench, shower curb, a window sill, and a vanity shelf detail.
The overall design concept was to create a spa feel; fresh, clean, beautiful, and timeless. We decided on a soft color palette consisting of warm greys and clean whites. Cambria’s New Quay for beauty, and Cambria’s Whitecliff for simplicity, were perfect choices with this design objective.
Counters / Tub Surround: New Quay with subtle taupe tones adds depth and beauty to these spaces. With a simple ridgeline edge, and a softened square radius, the lines appear sleek and simple.
Shower Bench / Curb / Wall: Whitecliff has a minimal style and solid white color tone. These pieces form a neat “boundary” to hide all of the tile “cuts” and are easy to wipe clean.
Window Sill: Whitecliff eliminates the issue of moisture and mildew that can seep into a wood window sill.
Vanity Detail: Whitecliff for this element makes this custom vanity feel and function more like a piece of furniture it was created to be, without competing with the design in the counter.
Quartz is an amazing material for bathrooms because it won’t stain, requires no sealing (no maintenance yay!), and of course is available in a variety of styles and colors. If you need help with selections, my advice is to think outside of the box, and ask for professional help!
