If you’ve been checking out the DiY Network, you have probably come across Run My Renovation. In the show, homeowners give up all control over a renovation as every choice is made by online voters. While it sounds risky, the lucky homeowners in the episode “Rekindling the Kitchen Love,” struck it rich with surfaces from the Artisan Group. These high quality stone countertops are available at Construction Resources, and were chosen by a landslide of online votes for the most important part of the kitchen.
In fact, over sixty percent of the voters chose Artisan Group’s Golden Crystal stone counter surface for the episode’s kitchen renovation. The episode explores a complete renovation, with the homeowners involved in every way, from hands-on demolishing their own kitchen to applying the paint Read More→
Cambria quartz countertops came in at number two in a list of the 30 most innovative kitchen and bath products in the February issue of Kitchen and Bath Ideas Magazine, a special publication of Better Homes and Gardens. Cambria was one of only two countertop surfaces featured in the article, which contained everything from new washing machines to high tech shower upgrades.
Cambria’s Waterstone Collection made the list because its appearance is similar to granite and marble, but with extra strength. Its non-porous nature was also praised for not having to be sealed frequently like other surfaces. Reasons like these are why our customers love Cambria, and we carry a full selection to match demand.
This issue also has an inventive way to specialize kitchen island countertops. This is done by using different surfaces for different jobs in your island prep Read More→

Cambria quartz countertops are proud to announce their featured designer for Winter 2012, celebrated interior designer Ramsin Khachi. Khachi spearheads the Toronto-based Khachi Design Group, which he grew from a one-man construction company into a full service Design/Build firm. Khachi often appears on CTV’s Marilyn Denis Show and has also served as an expert for Benjamin Moore paints.
Khachi used Cambria as the unifying force in a recent design job that resurrected a 23-year-old split level in Oakville, a suburb west of Toronto. He chose Cambria because, in his own words, “I’m not interested in following trends. I like to use classical details with a contemporary twist, and materials like Cambria that will stand the test of time.” The home is fully upgraded for each room to function ideally as possible. Every room is also upgraded with state-of-the-art technology like biometric locks, sensors to automatically Read More→

In case you missed it, Mariel Hemingway was on the popular web and radio show “MyFixItUpLife Talk Show” during the holidays to talk about her passion for Cambria quartz countertops. Mariel spoke with hosts Mark and Theresa at the Cambria booth at the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show in Las Vegas about what she liked at the show, her third book and more.
Hemingway, a big environmentalist and spokesperson for healthy living, spoke out about Cambria’s GREENGUARD Environmental Institute certification and lack of off-gassing. Hemingway also spoke about how her book relates to Cambria: one of the key parts of Mariel’s Kitchen is the importance of creating a sacred space for both food preparation and eating in the home. We can all agree with Hemingway that the kitchen is the heart of the home, where both homeowners and guests are drawn to congregate. For Hemingway, cooking is both ceremony and ritual, and Cambria fosters an environment that creates and determines your good health and positive well-being, just like her other passions yoga and meditation.
Check out the video above for more information about her dedication to healthy living through Cambria, yoga and more. When you’re ready to improve the heart of your home, and perhaps add in some gorgeous Cambria counter surfaces like Mariel has for your personal culinary rituals, come to any of our showrooms.
