Five Reasons to Choose a Quartz Countertop for Your Kitchen

Although granite has been the countertop material of choice for many kitchen and bath designers over the years, the undeniable benefits of quartz are making it an increasingly popular choice for homeowners.

Monarch Kitchen and Bath Centre is proud to carry quartz countertops from Cambria. Cambria is pure natural quartz, one of the hardest and most common minerals on Earth.
With the natural look and feel of granite, homeowners love Cambria because it's...

Beautiful
Cambria countertops are available in a wide variety of designer colors and offer the natural beauty and variation of quarry-cut stone. Cambria's new line of colours can be found here.

Strong
Because Cambria is pure natural quartz with a small amount of pigment and an epoxy resin, it's stronger than granite and is nonporous.

Easy to Maintain
Unlike granite, a Cambria countertop does not require sealing or polishing and is resistant to stains. Simply wash it with warm water and mild soap.

Food Safe
Cambria countertops are nonporous and have been deemed as being as safe as stainless steel (by NSF International) in commercial food preparation kitchens.

Stain Resistant
Cambria countertops resist stains from such common household items as coffee, tea, and wine.
