    This concerns me...we are about to put cambria in all of our bathrooms, bar and potentially kitchen. We heard that caeserstone was having some issues have you liked it? Not sure I like Cambria's position on your issue!! We live in MN and have heard great things about it, but still have time to change our mind (and share this with our builder who does a lot of work in our Lk Mtka area).

    I am totally kicking myself! We were originally set on Caesarstone. In fact, my order was already placed, but we had a month long construction delay which resulted in our color choice becoming unavailable and placed on a 10-12 week back order. At that point, we had been without a kitchen for 5 months and with 3 young kids, I was pressed to get the ball rolling. I looked at several Quartz samples and a Cambria color was the closest I could find as an alternative to the backordered first choice. I read all of the negative reviews on Houzz several times before deciding to take a chance and go with Cambria as it appeared their costumer service had improved over the past year. I so regret that decision. 10 days after the Cambria installation, we had a hairline crack develop in our island countertop. We had not even used the kitchen yet. The crack began in the corner of our stovetop cutout and spidered out towards our island overhang. All cabinetry was brand new construction and level. We also purposefully purchased the thick 3mm option, as we had heard the thickness would help protect against the cracking risk. Cambria has come to our house 3 times to address the crack, investigate the cause, drill two relief holes (one of which failed and the crack was able to continue growing past the hole), etc. We have wasted several hours discussing the situation with our fabricator/installer and Cambria reps. Even though they cannot conclusive determine the cause of the crack and all SOPs were followed, they insist cracks are not covered under the warranty and therefore our Cambria qualified fabricator/installer is to blame. Cambria will not back their product and has placed 100% of the replacement cost on the fabricator/installer. Shame on me for taking a chance with this company. I should have listened to all the people who have already been through this. Currently, it's a waiting game for us to see if the crack continues to grow past the second relief hole. I swear I can see it beginning to happen. If it does grow again and continues to the point where it reaches the edge of our counter, it will be a huge safety hazard and will have to be removed. At that point, there isn't a chance we'll be using Cambria as our replacement material and possibly not even Quartz either (from another company) unless we're able to find one with a warranty that covers cracks.

    Is the floor tile porcelain and what size are they. So beautiful. I wish there was a designer in my area that could create this in my bathroom. I am just starting my master bath and this cleannnnn look is exactly what I am after.

    Hi Cat, unfortunately we are unsure of the details of this tile. We found "Arctic White" by Daltile to be a close match We also thought you might enjoy knowing that all of Cambria's designs can be used as floor tile and encourage you to browse our photo gallery to see the a few tiling options Thank you!

    Thoughts on "lagoon" by silestone?
  • Jo'Ann Alderson
    We installed lagoon in our wet bar. I would not recommend it for a kitchen. It shows every mark.

    The other pics I see of the torquay do not display this much gray or movement like Barbara is saying. Do I have to specify "from the waterstone collection" to get this exact look?
  • PRO
    Hi Christie! There is only one Torquay in our design collection, so you do not need to specify that it is from the Waterstone Collection. As with most stone surfaces, there will be some natural variation in the movement of each design. We thought you might like to see an up close view of Torquay in this bathroom, as well as in this kitchen Please let us know if you have any additional questions or requests. Thank you for connecting with us!

    Thank you for your suggestion. Unfortunately, I have already been to our local Cambria showroom. It was suggested to me that the Torquay was what people use to coordinate with Carrera. When I got my sample home, it didn't work. Carrara is blue-white and Torquay is off-white with taupe veining. Do you have any suggestions?
  • PRO
    Hi teri_b, Torquay coordinates well with Cambria's Whitehall and Templeton designs! Cambria can also be used as flooring, tile, and backsplash. Please let us know if you have any additional questions! Thank you

    Cambria's Torquay is a fabulous alternative to Carrera marble!

    Hi lucieskitchen! We are not sure on the specific color of these walls, but found Benjamin Moore's Quiet Moments 1563 and Healing Aloe 1562 to be very similar. Please let us know if you have any other questions. Thank you!

    Hello, we aren't sure of the exact cabinetry used. It is most likely custom for this space. We recommend taking this photo to a cabinet fabricator near you and they will be able to help you replicate this look.
