When it comes to kitchen worktops, most of our clients' main criteria is that the material should be durable and low maintenance. For this reason quartz is the most popular choice. Quartz is a man-made product made up of 93% quartz and 7% resin which is pressed, heated and coloured to resemble natural stone. It is resistant to abrasion, has virtually no porosity, and is easy to keep clean. There is also a wide variety of colours available so you are bound to find one that suits your taste.
Whilst quartz is very hard-wearing, there is still a small chance that it can get chipped or marked if you do not look after it properly, just like granite and marble can. Cosentino, who are probably best known for Silestone, have recently launched a product called Dekton which is almost indestructible. It is a combination of quartz, porcelain and glass and it has zero porosity. It is resistant to stains & scratches and has better heat resistance than any other material currently on the market. In fact, you can even use a blow torch on the worktops without causing any damage! Dekton is resistant to UV rays, freezing and thawing and is therefore ideal for outdoor spaces as well.
If you are wanting worktops that will withstand some serious cooking then Dekton might be the thing for you! Their selection of sleek colours are bound to make your kitchen look stunning.
