5 Ways a Quartz Backsplash Can Make a Space

Save

Are your backsplash goals set in stone? Natural stone backsplashes are a sleek and striking way to set your space apart. In an array of stunning natural quartz designs, a Cambria backsplash can take your kitchen or bathroom from beautiful to breathtaking (with benefits to boot!). Here are five ways a quartz backsplash can truly make a space.

1. Create a defined focal point with a quartz backsplash behind the range or sink.

We love the symmetry created in these spaces with a Cambria backsplash taking center stage. When aligned with a range and statement hood, a quartz backsplash with bold movement like Brittanicca Matte or Skara Brae creates a commanding focal point.

This dreamy blue kitchen features a custom Brittanicca Matte backsplash that slides to reveal hidden storage. Paired with a black and brass range hood, the marble-like quartz backsplash is both luxe and practical.

In more minimal spaces, a Cambria backsplash can help to define a focal point and create visual interest. In this studio kitchen, a Brittanicca Matte backsplash creates a focal point with bold gray veining behind the sink area. Matte black appliances and dark tile create contrast on either side to make the quartz pop.

2. Showcase flowing movement with a cohesive design throughout the space.

Choosing your countertops is a big decision. If you’ve fallen in love with a Cambria design for your countertops, you can maximize the beauty and the benefits by extending the design to your backsplash.

A coordinating backsplash creates a cohesive look and brings the design features of your countertops into broader view so you can appreciate the movement and depth from all angles. You’ll also boost the enjoyment of your kitchen with a fuss-free Cambria backsplash. A sleek alternative to a tile backsplash, Cambria is durable and easy-clean, with no grout lines to contend with.

Designs like Brittanicca, Brittanicca Warm, and Brittanicca Gold™ feature flowing movement, making them some of our favorites to achieve this look.

If you love clean, streamlined spaces or worry you’ll tire of a backsplash tile in a few years, this single-stone style may be perfect for you. It’s also ideal if you’d like to incorporate a unique nook such as a mini bar, coffee station or workspace in your kitchen.

3. Add drama and contrast with a full-height quartz backsplash for a feature-wall effect.

Some spaces simply demand drama. And a full-height Cambria backsplash that functions like a feature wall is a sophisticated and elegant way to achieve it. Choose two complementary Cambria designs for the backsplash and countertops, with a distinct backsplash design extending up to the ceiling and outward to the cabinetry or windows. For a statement wall effect, we recommend pairing a bolder Cambria design for the backsplash to contrast a more subtle or monochromatic Cambria design for the countertops.

Boldly patterned backsplashes are on trend, and Cambria has many show-stopping designs to perfect the look. Some options we love include Galloway, with dramatic veining and mixed metal tones, and Brittanicca, with luxe marbled veining.

This statement stone backsplash look is a great option if you have unique features such as vaulted ceilings or exposed beams you want to highlight. A quartz backsplash with movement is also a great way to create height if you want to draw the eye up in a smaller space.

If you’re drawn to the idea of a feature wall, a natural quartz backsplash is more powerful than paint or wallpaper – especially with both the beauty and performance of Cambria.

4. Make a bold statement with a quartz bathroom backsplash.

Kitchens aren’t the only place where a Cambria backsplash is a smart investment. Cambria is nonporous and nonabsorbent, ideal for a bathroom backsplash in addition to the vanity countertops. Because no water is absorbed, Cambria offers a hygienic surface unlike any other stone–keeping mold, mildew, and bacteria at bay. And the continuous look from countertops to backsplash makes a bold and stunning statement, showcasing the beauty of the stone with mesmerizing depth.

For a master bath or powder room, extend the backsplash to the ceiling for high-impact style or opt for a partial backsplash to create an easy-clean zone where water tends to collect.

5. Create an open and airy effect with a subtle white marbled quartz backsplash.

If you’re dreaming of an open, airy space with understated elegance, you can create a marble-wall effect with a white quartz backsplash in many of Cambria’s designs. Designs like Torquay and Swanbridge™ offer subtle marble veining that adds light texture and a pristine feel.
