A smart alternative to concrete, these gorgeous gray quartz countertops can suit any kitchen style, bathroom design, and more. Scroll on for an abundance of gray kitchen countertop inspo—get ready to pin your favorites!

Alternative to concrete countertops

Love the concrete look but don’t want to deal with the drawbacks? Concrete is difficult to install and some cabinetry may not be able to support its heavy weight. It also has to be maintained regularly and can stain. With Cambria, you don’t have to concern yourself with DIY countertops or worry about maintenance, staining, or performance. Cambria is always professionally installed, warranty-protected, and maintenance free. Learn more about Cambria vs. concrete.

Design flexibility with an array of gray Cambria countertops

Cambria offers a variety of gray design styles to help you achieve the perfect tone and movement to suit your space. Designs like Queen Anne and Clareanne  feature white marble-like veining for an elegant and elevated look, while a design like Carrick showcases subtle tone-on-tone movement. Customize your look with low-sheen Cambria Matte™ or high gloss finish depending on your desired aesthetic.
