Can you match Cambria Torquay with Carrara Tile?

Posted by Azure5 (My Page) on

I am redoing my bathroom and have a quartz Torquay countertop along with dark cherry vanities. I am thinking of getting Carrara tiles to use as a backsplash as well as for the tub/shower area. I have been told that these two clash and shouldn't be used together, but they seem to be a great match, in my opinion. Does anyone have any advice on this subject?

Torquay is predictably patterned but every carrara tile will be different. I just unboxed a carrara countertop that is almost entirely smoke gray, with only 2 veins of cream. If you have laid out your tile in your space and they look good in that room with the light, then go for it. Hey, I'm putting a $700 polished brass faucet on my little slab of carrara. Nobody does that, either. But in my house, in my space, it's gonna work.

Having lived with Torquay in the kitchen and pantry for two years now, I'd say no. How about using a shaped tile, like hex to add interest? I'd definitely use a solid color.

Good luck!

If you have a full mirror above the vanity, then can continue the Caesarstone onto a 4" backsplash. Otherwise, may want to consider other options. You may find inspiration in a similar thread on the Kitchen forum.

Here's another idea for a backsplash to go with your Cambria Torquay counter. I saw a curved glass mosaic backsplash used with a marble countertop in the master bedroom of a luxury home. I don't know the vendor for the backsplash.
