Love Your Countertops

We lean on them. We set things on them. We prepare food on them. Sometimes we sort our mail on them. And when everyone gathers together in the kitchen, we even sit on them. They’re our countertops and we often overlook their form in favor of their functionality. Not always pretty and not always easy to take care of, our countertops are one area in our homes that are usually in need of an upgrade.

With the holiday season upon us, why not consider giving yourself and early gift and invest in some new countertops in you home? Create a sanitary place to roll out the sugar cookie dough, a clean and spacious area to wrap those holiday gifts, and a place to prepare the holiday meal. Not to mention a gathering place for family and friends this season as you pour the wine and pass the hors d’oeuvres. When it’s time to make that upgrade, be sure to pick a material that fits your lifestyle.

Cambria Quartz

Cambria quartz countertops are made with 93% pure quartz, more than typical granite countertops. Because of the high quartz concentration, Cambria is more durable than other types of countertop. It’s low maintenance, meaning that there is no polishing, finishing, or conditioning required. The surface is non-porous and non-absorbent, which means that it won’t harbor moisture from food that can breed bacteria. With over 120 designs that are clear, natural, and gorgeous, you’ll be sure to find something that matches your kitchen or bath. Cambria surfaces are also certified as a low-emitting product, which is good for indoor air quality. Plus, Cambria countertops are certified Kosher.


Silestone is made of 94% quartz. It is stain, acid, and scratch resistant as well as being strong and durable when it comes to impact. Silestone is unique in that it is the first brand of countertop that has bacteriostatic protection, meaning that it uses silver ion technology to keeps bacteria from spreading, which makes it ideal for the kitchen and a good choice in the bathroom as well. Easy to take care of, easy to clean, this brand offers colors that range from black to white and every color in between from aquamarine to magenta. You can literally color coordinate your rooms with hues not found in any other brand.

At Cardigan, we offer both Cambria and Silestone so we can meet your countertop needs. Quality, style, and elegance are of the utmost importance to us, which is why we work with such reputable companies. When you’re ready to make the upgrade, call us for the best selection of countertops in town.
