Cozy Up with Quartz: Cambria Fireplace Roundup

Save

Ready to turn up the heat in your space? The same surface you love for your kitchen countertops can be used for a breathtaking fireplace design. A Cambria fireplace surround elevates a living room, den, or bedroom whether you’re building new or updating an existing fireplace that doesn’t suit your style. With a striking selection of natural quartz designs and unmatched durability, Cambria ensures your fireplace will be a swoon-worthy centerpiece to enjoy for years to come. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite quartz fireplace ideas to help you find the perfect match for your next project.

Marble-look quartz fireplace surround

Paired with a blonde-wood mantel and boho décor, this Brittanicca fireplace surround and hearth bring beautiful marble-like movement and California-chic vibes. “We chose to use Cambria around our fireplace because of its durability and unique aesthetic,” says Kim Cannizzaro of KC Design Co. “Originally quartz was never on our radar with the fireplace design. We planned to use stone tile, but due to the porous nature we opted to find a more durable option.”

“It wasn’t until we went shopping for the hearthstone that we found a love and appreciation of all the various colors and designs of Cambria. We knew once we saw the Brittanicca design, it needed to become part of our home,” adds Cannizzaro. “[We] completely scratched our tile plan and installed quartz for the hearth and surround. It holds up to the shuffling of fireplace tools and any dirt wipes right off. We couldn’t be happier with our choice.”

“Brittanicca has a way of being a statement piece that can also complement a casual space,” says Cannizzaro. “It effortlessly [blends] with the touches of organic, midcentury modern, and Scandinavian elements in this space.”

Granite-alternative fireplace surround

Berwyn, one of our favorite granite alternatives, adds elegant texture and tones for subtle contrast in this light living space. “We found that Cambria had the nicest color options to work with our beachy blue-gray theme,” says Andi Wheelband of Two Birds Design. “We kept most material white with only soft blues and very little gray as accents and Berwyn fit the bill perfectly.”

Open and airy fireplace design

We love the airy, coastal feel of this living area with a Brittanicca fireplace paired with fir beams, pops of fresh greenery, and plenty of natural light. “We started with a light base on all the finishes, including a warm, light-colored white oak hardwood, white walls, soft-gray cabinetry, and a custom-stained fir ceiling and beams,” explains Jaclyn Peters of Jaclyn Peters Design. “From there we added the character and interest with the stunning Brittanicca countertops in the kitchen and fireplace surround.” See how this living room pairs with the open-concept Brittanicca kitchen in this cozy home tour.

This lake home is cool and contemporary with a Cambria Black Matte fireplace surround offering chic contrast in the light-filled living area. “I use Cambria for 90% of my countertop and hard surface needs. The variety of style and colors makes it unique to each design I do for my clients,” says Megan Gaerte, interior designer/principal at West Central Home LLC. “For this home I wanted to do a clean and modern lake home design. I chose the Cambria Black Matte to pull in a casual texture needed for the space to add comfort without overwhelming the shiplap.”
