MY DESIGN STORY
Bright, White & Unstoppable!
When Shawn and Coralie purchased their eight-year-old home, they weren’t sold on the existing kitchen counter top colour and design. They came to Progressive Countertop with a clear vision: a contemporary, light kitchen with a specific countertop design in mind. “We wanted something that would mimic the look of Carrara marble …” They also required the durability of quartz. Introducing Torquay™ from the Cambria® Waterstone Collection™.
Fresh, spacious, contemporary, clean—white!
Technically, there is nothing cleaner or brighter than the colour white. With two young children, you might think the opposite. But, Shawn and Coralie had a quartz countertop in their previous home and were very pleased that it was maintenance-free, non-porous so it resisted bacteria, and it was extremely durable; all good features for a busy, young family!
Their Cambria® Torquay™ island countertop not only looks amazing but it’s spacious and functional; great for hosting family gatherings, dinners, conversations and eventual homework activities.
The subtle design details from the light grey lines to the smooth, square edges add contemporary flare! This particular Torquay™ countertop features the Cambria “Z” edge profile. The edge is beveled, not rounded, at the top. It’s a small detail but it adds to the sleek, modern style.
From Design to Installation: Was the process as simple and as elegant as it looks?
- Eight year old home required a room makeover/retro-fit in the kitchen
- Client wanted a specific white, contemporary look
- Client liked the look of marble but required the durability of quartz
- Maple-coloured cupboards didn’t go with the new white, bright theme
- Torquay™ from the Cambria® Waterstone Collection™ is featured on the kitchen counters and island. This stone achieves the look of Carrara marble with the durability of Cambria® quartz.
- The countertop edges feature Cambria’s “Z” edge profile.
- The client completed the transformation by:painting the cabinets white, adding modern cabinet hardware and new light fixtures; replacing the sink and faucet; dishwasher and fridge; adding a range hood over the stove and adding a subway tile backsplash.
“…We wanted to know our options…Paul at Progressive was able to provide options and recommendations to achieve this look”, writes Coralie. “And… the installation process was seamless!”
Cambria® Tourquay™ combined with Shawn & Coralie’s kitchen vision: Simply Stunning!
