80's Bathroom Overhaul Spotlighting: Cambria Quartz

Long time customer, Jennifer of Plano, TX, was looking to take her 80's style bathroom to current but classic. Her love of warm tones needed to be toned down with gray to fit today's trends for a possible resale. With a love of design, Jennifer wasn't scared of color but chose a base of gray-beige 12x24 floor tile and Cambria's popular Brittanicca Gold. She added color with a red hued glass accent tile that brought out the warm tones in the Brittanicca Gold.

Cambria extended into shower structure for a functional seat. 

We caught up with Jennifer in her home after the remodel and asked her a few questions. 

Q: What was the bathroom like before the remodel? 

A: The bathroom before the remodel was stuck in 1986, it was all done in a cultured marble so it still had the shell sinks in both vanities. We had a very old blueish tile, all of the corinthian gold brass fixtures. The tub was actually a sunken tub down into the slab so we had to raise that. The shower was probably half the size it is now and a 3x3 white tile. 

Q: Why did you choose this particular combination for your bathroom remodel?

A: We chose this particular combination because we wanted to have an updated look. We wanted to bring the grays and the beige and the creams in but we also wanted to keep with the traditional style of the house. The Brittanicca Gold did that. It brought everything together with this Quartz. 

Q: What is your favorite thing about the new bathroom?

A: My favorite thing about the new bathroom has got to be my quartz countertops. I've loved them from the day they were installed. It just brought everything together for me and I do love my countertops. We ended up getting a 6 foot under mount tub which feels luxurious and the shower size obviously is very nice but I have to say my favorite thing is the countertops. 

Q: What did you like about using Cambria? 

A: What I liked about using Cambria was the number of selections that they had. They had a wide variety of different colors, different patterns and also the availably of the slab to come in a 2 or 3 cm. The size of the slab also because we were able to get all of the bathroom done with one slab which was important to me to keep the grain moving correctly and there showroom was outstanding. They had everything there that I needed to see in a full slab out in a showroom for me. There website also. I wanted to get an additional sample, it was sent out immediately. We were just very happy with Cambria.
