Elevate Your Projects with Cambria Quartz Surfaces: Embrace Vertical Applications

By NARI Industry Partner Cambria
Quartz countertops are a leading trend in the world of design, and Cambria leads the way with its palette of unique and innovative quartz designs.
Another trend is emerging—taking Cambria quartz surfaces and going vertical. From backsplashes in the kitchen, shower surrounds in the bathroom, and even on the fireplace, industry professionals and homeowners are finding new ways to show off the most in-demand quartz surface in the market today.
“Many of our clients love Cambria and they dreamed of a seamless vertical continuation of the countertop. So it was a natural fit to use the same quartz design for the backsplash,” explains Tony Gatti, who owns renovation firm GATTI BROTHERS with his brother Joe.
This brother duo, whose projects are primarily in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) in Canada, recently had the pleasure of working with celebrity designer Jane Lockhart, owner of JANE LOCKHART DESIGN, who was helping a client renovate a home in Toronto’s Roncesvalles neighborhood. The client selected Cambria’s popular Brittanicca™  quartz design for the kitchen island and countertops, and they rave about the backsplash, also in Brittanicca.
“It looks amazing,” says Tony. “Cambria does such a professional job in matching the veining.”


The Gatti Brothers took this vertical trend a step further on another major renovation in neighboring Mississauga, where they worked with designer Melissa Kanaan, owner of THE APPLEBY. Here, the family selected Cambria’s Portrush™ DESIGN for a two-tiered island, backsplash, and countertops. They also wanted the hood fan to be clad in Cambria because it’s so durable and easy to maintain.
“This project was more involved, as the cabinet maker had to build the box for the hood fan, and have the right amount of space between the box and cabinets,” Tony explains. “It turned out to be a showpiece.”

Another emerging trend is making bathrooms into luxury spas and what better way to show off the beauty of Cambria quartz surfaces than to get vertical in the shower.
“This application can definitely add a wow factor,” says designer RUTNAISH PRIHAR, owner of Oakville, Ontario-based design/build firm RP DESIGN. During a recent visit to Cambria’s Gallery in Toronto’s trendy King East Design District, Rutnaish, a Cambria fan who specializes in the luxury market, was impressed with the shower surround display and plans to use this application in her next bathroom reno. She was particularly impressed with the benefits of using Cambria on shower walls, such as no ugly grout lines and no sealing or reconditioning required. Because Cambria is nonabsorbent, it is ideal for moist areas, like the shower, and cleaning is easy. Just use warm water, a soft cotton cloth, and mild soap, if desired.

And talk about a wow factor. Getting hot, hot, hot is going vertical on fireplaces. “This definitely is a growing trend,” comments Kamal Moshg, owner of PARAND DESIGN in Oakville, Ontario. Kamal recently worked with Oakville designer Sonia Sudan of SONIA SUDAN INTERIORS on a home renovation where the homeowners selected Cambria. He says one of the stunning features in this home renovation project is the spectacular floor-to-ceiling fireplace clad in Cambria’s Dunmore™  design. Similarly, see below for another stunning fireplace using Cambria’s Skara Brae™ design.

As we’ve seen, industry professionals and homeowners alike are embracing this trend with enthusiasm, creating unique, breathtaking spaces that leave a lasting impression. The versatile and durable nature of Cambria quartz surfaces allows for innovation. So, whether you are helping your customers envision a kitchen transformation, a bathroom oasis, or a fireplace that commands attention, it’s clear that Cambria’s vertical applications are here to stay, ready to bring a touch of sophistication and modernity to your customers’ homes.
